    Love the technology built into your product and the reaaly good quality.

  2. John G. (verified owner)

    The resistance bands, handles and door attachment are all high quality. I just finished my 3rd workout with no negative issues. I am well satisfied.

  3. Steven F. (verified owner)

    I've been using your products for years. I think they're great, but this was a gift. Not sure what my Aunt thinks. One thing I noticed. It appears you changed the format of your video library. It's very confusing.

  4. Anthony B. (verified owner)

    I recently bought the Bodylastics 12 pc/96 lb kit. I love it! I'm getting a good workout and it takes up almost no space. Perfect for my small apartment. It is well built and well designed. Sturdy and easy to put together. They also show you lots of workouts.

  5. Ro G. (verified owner)

    Great product!!! Perfect just what I needed

  6. Alexandra E. (verified owner)

    Excellent purchase! These work super well and feel very sturdy and safe to use. Would highly recommend.

  7. John V. (verified owner)

    Quality products.

  8. Kyle S. (verified owner)

    The bands, handles, and velcro straps are all very sturdy, like you would find at a commercial gym. The labeling on the cords, as to their strength, is clear as well. One last thing – I contacted customer service with a few questions. The response was fast and with complete answers.

  9. Brandon B. (verified owner)

    I bought these bands to stay in shape after having foot surgery and being off work for 3 months. I work in a factory maintenance setting that requires me to be in good physical shape. These bands have really helped me do that. Thanks, Steve M.

  10. Laura G. (verified owner)

    For the price, quality, and user friendly company. It's well worth it. Saved my life, because I couldn't afford a pull up bar, or fit one in the apartment, or use a door bar because of how weak the door frames are with their fake wood. So this was the perfect option. Without spending a crap load of money on free weights, or endangering my life in a public gym due to the pandemic, I literally have a gym in my back pack, sweet!

  11. Laurel P. (verified owner)

    It is already hard to make your self do the exercises. Having to stop to readjust a standard anchor just gives you more room for excuses. The ultra door anchor makes it easy to just flow through your work outs.

  12. David R. (verified owner)

    High quality!! I have used them once and already love them. 🙂

  13. Omar E. (verified owner)

    There is a bit of a learning curve to get a routine that will work for me but so far, the set has been good and the videos helpful.

  14. Steven K. (verified owner)

    The construction is top-notch.

  15. Ken C. (verified owner)

    As advertised. Have had a prior set. They hold up well and there are almost unlimited exercises that can be done. Get them, use them!

  16. Dale D. (verified owner)

    Everything about these bands are first class. The bands have great tension and retain their stretch. The carabiners are heavy duty and large. The handles are heavy duty and feel great. The rings on the handles are large which is a plus for stacking the bands. Best bands available IMO.

  17. Cheri C. (verified owner)

    For the first time in years I can workout without pain from tendinitis

  18. Adam K. (verified owner)

    Took a little bit to receive the product. It was only due to the high demand. I never mind waiting a little longer for a good product. And this one didn't disappoint.

  19. Joe T. (verified owner)

    Allow to do full body workout and target specific muscles

  20. Daniel S. (verified owner)

    The quality is very good

  21. Edwin D. (verified owner)

    most substantial (durable) bands I've found to date

  22. Steven G. (verified owner)

    Great quality equipment ,really fell the burn !!

  23. Linda B. (verified owner)

    This set is so great that I bought another for my dad. He loved them so much that my brother also bought a set! My dad broke his elbow over 25 years ago and has struggled with weight lifting. He said this is the first time in over 2 decades that his elbow does not pop when exercising!

  24. Rory S. (verified owner)

    Quality items, in nice zipped bag.

  25. John R. (verified owner)

    The system is so easy and so fun. Quality is so exceptional! Bob and Brad do not lie. You are the best!

  26. Jack J. (verified owner)

    Well-made. Exceeded my expectations!

  28. Eric T. (verified owner)

    The performance!

  29. Timothy K. (verified owner)

    Great product. I thought free weights were the only way to go, but I find I can feel the resistance and the pump better with your bodylastics ! I even bought my son a set.

  30. Michael B. (verified owner)

    Bought the set because of back and shoulder issues. Recommended by my chiropractor. Glad to work at home instead of going to physical therapy.

  31. Arnold R. (verified owner)

    Distribution of weight sizes of bands allows for good mixing and matching for a beginner. Bands are a little slick even with gloves which use due to a latex allergy. Is there a way to decrease this with something other than dry chalk powder? Otherwise, just what I was looking for to use during sheltering in place workouts. Non snap cord insert is a lifesaver.

  32. Jeremy T. (verified owner)

    I love the way that my muscles work in unison of contracting, then extending the muscle/muscle groups. I am still trying to get a routine of some sorts but I love all the experiences that I am having with it.

  33. Robert M. (verified owner)

    I like that the bands have an anti snap core, since I've had cheaper bands snap on me. The weight resistance is clearly marked on each band, and the handles and straps feel solid and gym quality. The book of exercises is also nicely made and extremely helpful. This set enables you to do complete body resistance training at home. Very satisfied!

  34. David H. (verified owner)

    Getting to a gym is impractical for me & my husband. In concert with a fitness deck, we can do all kinds of exercises with these, for general fitness as well as training for archery.
    The handles are comfortable and attach√:copyright: easily, but securely to the bands. I like the fact that they can be combined for higher weight. Many companies make sets like this, but we chose BodyLastics because they are reinforced internally for safety.
    Highly recommended.

  35. Christopher W. (verified owner)

    Quality, durability, safety, ease of use

  36. Steven D. (verified owner)

    Really great quality! Not just the bands but the handles and straps, too. This set is perfect for me, the beginner.

  37. Stephanie D. (verified owner)

    Well built, ease of use, responsive customer service.

  38. Edward B. (verified owner)

    I've tried others, Bodylastics is among the very best in exercise bands. Great product.

  39. Robert G. (verified owner)

    Great resistance bands! The set includes everything you need to get started on a variety of band workouts. The equipment is high quality and easy to set up.

  40. Anthony W. (verified owner)

    my other brand I had to remember which color was best. The instruction manual is very detailed and I like the chart showing all the weight combination options. I do wish the chart was available in a larger format but I scanned it and printed it larger. Would have also preferred a poster with the exercises instead of a booklet. But those last two are extremely minor. I purchased these because of the reviews and reputation for quality in the bands and so far I am very pleased with that.

  41. Rick G. (verified owner)

    I love the durability of them! Bought another brand that wasn't as well made and wish I had seen bodylastics products first!! Definitely will be going to bodylastics for all my resistance band needs!!

  42. Steven M. (verified owner)

    Product seems to be as advertised and very acceptable.

  43. Patrick S. (verified owner)

    well constructed and packaged, I got a good hamstring curl workout in on my first attempt! Please include a small "anywhere anchor" in all of your kits, I'm having to make a follow up order to get one as most of the workouts I want to do are impossible without one.

  44. Bill M. (verified owner)

    These are the New York Times' highest-rated resistance bands. They're made with quality parts – metal hooks/rings where a lot of other bands use plastic that breaks down more easily – and I love that they are made in the USA by a company near where I live. So far my experience has been excellent – they are strong, durable, and easy to figure out. Strongly recommend these!

  45. Vitalii B. (verified owner)

    Great quality and easy to follow instruction manual.

  46. Darren R. (verified owner)

    Well made set with everything I need in one bag. I love the idea of these resistance bands vs heavy equipment, and Bodylastics are the highest rated. Very pleased, and will be adding to my set. Thanks!

  47. John N. (verified owner)

    LOVE! I am new to resistance training and these feel great

  48. Daisy B. (verified owner)

    Bodylastics processed my order quickly and it was delivered in time for the holidays. The quality of the product received is excellent with high-quality hardware and elastic bands. Thank you!

  49. Nate G. (verified owner)

    I like the following the most- very comfortable handles and ease of switching bands. Very good product.

  50. David L. (verified owner)

    I'm very impressed with the quality of this product! I'm very pleased with my purchase of these bands and I will not hesitate to purchase future products from bodylastics!!! I will definitely tell others about bodylastics!

  51. Carmen P. (verified owner)

    I like being able to have a good workout without having to dedicate mass amounts of money and space for free weights.

  52. Al P. (verified owner)

    High Quality, well designed, easy to use, effective.

  53. Manny V. (verified owner)

    Easy to get started using them, nice handles and the resistance feels even!

  54. Luke M. (verified owner)

    Bodylastics was recommended from my PT, so I ordered the 12 piece set. Love how compact everything is for traveling and product appears very sturdy. Much better than other resistance bands on the market. Very pleased!

  55. Ruben E. (verified owner)

    Resistance bands you can trust. So easy to increase/decrease resistance for efficient workout at just the right level of intensity!

  56. Manny M. (verified owner)

    I received my Bodylastics order in a short time and exactly what I ordered. Your product is superior to the cheap bands that are sold on Amazon. I specifically searched for made in USA and the high quality is
    obvious. I feel safe using the Bodylastic bands knowing there is an internal safety cord in the unlikely event of breakage. I am 74 years old and COVID has prevented me from going to a fitness center, so I am glad that I tried resistance bands for keeping fit. I am finding that the bands are somewhat more forgiving than free weights and machines so they are perfect for seniors. I can still get a decent workout without going to a traditional gym.

  57. Richard N. (verified owner)

    Highly recommended! As advertised, the system is easy to used and has fit my needs very well as I work to rehab from a shoulder injury. There could be a little more padding/design change around the handles (the large O-ring connecter can push up against your wrists) but not enough of an issue to dock any stars for this great system.

  58. Stephen S. (verified owner)

    Just got these for my "home" gym. High quality, versatile, easy door jam device all keeping me in good shape. Thank you Bodylastics!

  59. Dean R. (verified owner)

    I was skeptical at first but I am a resistance band believer now! For less than a month's subscription to the gym, I can cover just about everything from home with these. Plus Bodylastics stands by their product with a warranty

  60. Jonna F. (verified owner)

    I have been working with an athletic trainer and using resistance cords. I wanted some at home to continue my workout. I love these so much I told him about them and he is going to recommend them to his other patients.

  61. Khayree N. (verified owner)

    These materials are VERY good quality. I know I'm going to get an outstanding workout without worrying about safety and durability!

  62. William F. (verified owner)

    The best quality resistance bands I have used, by far. Very impressed with both quality and versatility!

  63. Robert E. (verified owner)

    I've been an exerciser my whole life and can truly say the bodylastics set is the best home equipment I've ever owned. The quality is far superior to anything else and I get fantastic workouts. I appreciate bodylastics and the betterment that's provided for my life.

  64. Bradley B. (verified owner)

    To put is simple… Just take Bodylastics and any other Chinese product. There is a mile-wide gap between them. There is no middle offers in this segment. There is bodylastics and others. I do not like the price increase too, but even with higher price tag, this company is the best.

  65. Ronald S. (verified owner)


  66. Lee A. (verified owner)

    The bands stretch properly and are sturdy giving you good resistance for the full range of motion. The weight/pounds seem accurate as well. I've only used them for two weeks but if they last as long as my first set, I can expect years of use. Good product, I would recommend them. The only negative is that my older bodylastics bands have larger carabiners on them so they are slightly longer, this makes stacking the old and new bands slightly off. Other than that everything is top notch.

  67. Tim C. (verified owner)

    Convenient, effective way to work out & high quality!!
    Here's a picture of how I was able to hang them inside a cabinet door. Great space saver üòä

  68. Michael C. (verified owner)

    Having had shoulder surgery was very used to using resistance bands. I love the way these resistance bands are so compact and mobile while including the full range of resistance. We RV a lot and I've found ways to hoot the onto most everything to use while on the road. Of course, learned about them from “The Fit RV”, James and Steff.

    awesome quality

  72. Kathy S. (verified owner)

    I have been using these bands for years but the older ones with the plastic clips. These are so much easier especially since I have arthritis. Best method of exercising I've enter found. Nothing better out there. Kassy S.

  73. Jennifer A. (verified owner)

    Have not receive order. When you call you have to leave a message. Response takes it time. My Grandson Birthday gift is lost. Does anyone care I ordered this 2 weeks prior. How would you feel if you did not get a gift from your Grandmother. Someone please help me….

  74. Bert G. (verified owner)

    Read an article about using bands and thought I'd try these. Received them promply and i was surprised at the quality. Started using them immediately and have already noticed improved strength and flexibility. Great product.

  75. Samantha (verified owner)

    I was very happy with these bands. I love using them for workouts! They are great quality and very easy to use. Price was great, too. Very happy with my purchase.

  76. Lazarus D. (verified owner)

    The Wallchart is awesome.

  77. Kevin G. (verified owner)

    Great product

  78. Charlotte H. (verified owner)

    I'm so pleased with my Bodylastics resistance bands that this last purchase is the second set that I have bought as gifts for friends that enjoy exercise but were unaware of the great utility and features of really good resistance bands. This is an exceptionally good piece of equipment. If you happen to be a martial artist then these bands are really going to help you out. I wish I had had Bodylastics when I was competing back in the 1970's. Buy these bands. You will NOT be disappointed.

  79. Joel C. (verified owner)


  80. Forrest B. (verified owner)

    I originally purchased these on advice from one of Frank Zane's books to increase time under tension during a set, but they also easily attach to a bowflex machine and add an additional 100 pounds of resistance for a very low price. The grab handles are also thick so they work well with cable movements too. Of course, they can also be used as intended as a great band resistance workout. Very worthwhile purchase

  81. Michael F. (verified owner)

    previous owner or another big gym equipment name brand elastic bands that I purchased just because of the brand.. I can assure you w/complete confidence that the 'bodylastics' brand is a much better constructed product with three times the accessories @ 1/3 the cost..

  82. Carl V. (verified owner)

    I bought this set as an update to on I bought about 15 years ago. The improvements are nice: metal band clips, larger rings, labels on the bands, more band color/strengths. I have always appreciated band resistance. Bodylastics offers an outstanding SYSTEM that enables a whole gym at home – the wall chart is awesome how it illustrates the exercise and muscles targeted, almost a personal trainer with the kit!! Thanks for a great product and for your commitment to continuous improvement. Great customer service, too – ordered Sun night, had it Tuesday.

  83. Jeremy J. (verified owner)

    very happy with the quality and performance. The exercise chart is great and easy to follow along with!

  84. Larry B. (verified owner)

    Product arrived as advertised and is very simple to set up and use. I particularly like the wide variety of exercises on the enclosed chart.

  85. Paul S. (verified owner)

    I've been using the Bodylastic Bands for years. The combination of bands along with the different exercises provide me strength and flexibility at 60 plus years old. I take them along when I travel.

  86. Justin H. (verified owner)

    Great quality product.

  87. Dan B. (verified owner)

    I have been so pleased with my first Bodylastics set that when, after 3 plus years of use, one of the bands broke, I decided to simply get another set. Obviously this new set increases my resistance and anchoring possibilities as well, and all for an unbeatable price. I am thrilled that such a convenient, easy to use system gives me the dynamic results and performance that Bodylastics bands do.

  88. Frank M. (verified owner)

    Great quality products. Would definitely refer others to purchase.

  89. Shirley F. (verified owner)

    Love the design improvements compared to an older product purchased a number of years ago. Especially the larger metallic clips and rings, larger handles. Very much like the wall chart. Would have appreciated additional information re certain descriptors on the individual exercise such as the numbered red circles.

  90. Kevin K. (verified owner)

    Love it, Had my Bodylastics for about 10 years and this is the 2ND time I had to order new bands. You guys are AWESOME!!!

  91. Richard R. (verified owner)

    Quality product, safe, convenient, and easy to set up.
    I would highly recommend Bodylastics to anyone looking for home workout equipment.

  92. Bernie B. (verified owner)

    This is the second set that I have bought for myself. I have bought sets for other family members. The bands lasted years and I use them at least 2-3 times a week.

  93. Paul S. (verified owner)

    The Bodylastics set worked so well for rehab of my knee and shoulder that I bought a set for my daughter. Buy a set, use it, and feel the difference.

  94. Bill C. (verified owner)


  95. John W. (verified owner)

    I'm using them to build chest muscles. I have other excercise aids for toning legs and arms. I like them.

  96. Jailan I. (verified owner)

    It is a great package, with a great selection for all areas of body and love the bright colors they come in and comfortable handles. The poster presentation is very useful, so I actually know how to use them effectively. Thank you,
