i now have slim in 6 and they use resistance bands. i was wondering if anyone could recommend a resistance band that would be good for me to use. i'm nervous to try again!
I wanted to start a pilates video that used a resistance band, so picked up a pack of them at a store. When I got them home, I couldn't use them the way the video did and noticed that the ones of the video were way longer. I ended up buying one from a physiotherapy clinic that cut a piece for me off a huge roll. Medical supply stores will also sell them like that, often in different weights.
it seems that a lot of people buy them with videos, but i would like to just buy it on its own since i already have videos that use them.
i saw in another forum someone mentioned that they liked the SPRI brand and they sell them at target. i think i'll go there and get one and give it a run!
thought i'd post this for anyone looking for one! :)

Teenwolf, I agree with you on the stretch bands. I did find some that work very well. They are called "Bodylastics". They are $50.00 and you get a program, 4 different sized resistance bands, instructions, a free membership to the program, you can even use the door as a way to use the bands and several attachments for different types of exercises. They have free videos online to watch so you can learn alot from them. No shipping fees either. I love mine. www.bodylastics.com. No I am not a sales person for them either. Just an ordinary woman needing to find something to help me lose this weight. Good luck!!
outback84069 I know you haven't responded to this thread in 7 months, but I was hoping to get a follow up on Bodylastics. I'm thinking about investing in them and was wondering if you still use yours and what do you think of your progress with them.
I love working out, but don't always have time to go down to my workout room which is my basement that currently has our home remodeling crap stacked in my workout area. I have enough time in the morning which I prefer for my workouts to do something but I'm limited for space anywhere else in the house but have lots of doors.
Also, my knees are healing so the gym membership isn't ideal right now. Do you still recommend these resistance bands and which tension did you purchase. I've been doing the reading and somehow I don't think basic will be enough.
Would be interested in your feedback.
