Fit For Fall: Balls ‘N’ Bands Review and Giveaway

Exercise balls and exercise bands are excellent tools to get in shape, lose inches in specific areas of you body (especially the abdomen), gain muscular strength & core strength, build endurance & stamina. They also help decrease back pain, correct posture, stretch muscles, and improve your overall health. Balls 'n' Bands home fitness equipment has everything you need to help you become become fit, feel healthier and get stronger!

Balls ‘N’ Bands has a revolutionary new exercise band known as the R:loop is a 6 inch diameter continuous loop designed for durable and it’s ability be easily used by people of all fitness levels. It’s latex-free, and hypo-allergenic. It requires no attachments yet still provides excellent resistance throughout the full range of motion.

Why Is The R:loop better than traditional bands?
The R:loop is made of a latex-free patented thermoplastic elastomer with a range of elasticity that exceeds traditional bands by over 300%!

R:loops are terrific for fitness exercising because of their abundant possibilities of exercise positions, durability and strength.

R:loops are convenient and easy to use for individuals, classes, gyms, studios or rehab centers.

The r:loop bands come in five color-coded strengths. I received the teal R:Loop which represents medium strength. I have used several other resistance bands, and this has to be one of my favorites!

Your possibilities are endless with the r:loop. Essentially, it can be used to perform nearly any type of exercise. Once you decide how you want to use your r:loop, you stabilize the loop opposite the directed of intended motion. Resistance can be adjusted by doubling the loop or shortening the length of the loop used.

The r:loop sits comfortably in place without rolling or pinching. I have been using my r:loop regularly and have noticed how incredibly durable it is; it’s made to last!

While hundreds of exercises can be used with the r:loop, a few example exercises include lateral lunges, hamstring curls, chest press, and my favorite, bicep curls. Here’s a video demonstration of how the r:loop works:

I absolutely love my r:loop! It’s versatile and takes up less space than bulky weights, yet I can see and feel the same results. It’s easy to clean, warm soapy water will do the trick. Talc or baby powder should be applied once dries, to prevent stickiness. And the best part, besides the amazing workout routines, is the fact that r:loop is very affordable! The r:loop I received is on sale for $8.95 and the regular price is still a great deal at just $9.95! The r:loop really works! I love mine and cannot believe I hadn’t heard of it sooner! If you are looking for a new resistance band, you can’t go wrong with r:loop!
