Last year, my gym closed. What a downer! It was within walking distance of my house, and I had been working out there for four years. But just a few doors down, even closer by, was a far better fitness solution. My neighbor Dave Herman trains professional athletes like golfer Trevor Immelman and star tennis doubles player Leander Paes, and they use his line of resistance bands called SuperFlex Bands (superflexbands.com, MSRP $6.95 – $34.95) to increase flexibility, stability, strength and speed – and I am officially hooked.
What I needed was a home gym tool that’s inexpensive, that I can take with me on the road and use at work. These bands are all that and much more. I can be as creative as I want with my fitness routine; there’s no potential for boredom, and risk of injury is significantly reduced compared to dumbells. Guess they named ’em that way for a reason. Because of the fluidity of this product, I can visualize that
I am being released off the second wake and into an amazing turn. Actually, I can devise band workouts that correlate to the movements of my entire run.
SuperFlex bands range in price from depending on the size and tension. They can be purchased in a kit that includes workout handles and clips for a discounted price.
