I'm Giving Away A Portable Gym For My Birthday


Yesterday I got an early birthday present..... YAY!!!  You all know I ALWAYS do.  This gift I begged for after filling in for a girl at work who stashes hand weights under her desk.  Who wants to lug around hand weights???  The challenge for me has ALWAYS been, "What to do when I'm not at home?"  And, at the new house, my beloved Curves is nowhere to be found.  Coincidentally, that is where I first read about resistance band training... the Curves book.

The workout in the book utilizes resistance bands to get the 1/2 hour Curves workout at home (BTW I'm totally needing right now), which I never did because I had my Curves close by.  But then we moved and my husband had surgery and has been using resistance bands three times a week at his physical therapy appointments and swears by the workout he gets with them.  SOLD!  I HAD to have these for my birthday!

WOW.... no kidding these babies are INCREDIBLE and cost me (well, my husband) $30!!!  Click HERE for the set I got pictured at the top.  And check out THIS video! 


This is the workout I did last night when the bands arrived.  Warning:  These bands are SO GREAT, I couldn't do the whole thing and was sweating my butt off!!!  It was FUN trying to keep up with her.  Whoever the genius was who thought of using rubber bands for a workout deserves EVERY penny they earned from this invention.  To be able to have an entire gym for around $30 AND be able to take it with you everywhere you go AND a bag full of bands weighing less than 4 pounds.....WHY did I not have these sooner?  Maybe it is because I just didn't believe they could give me a hard workout???  Maybe because I envisioned them not being sturdy and breaking???  I was so wrong!!!  Did I mention there is a lifetime warranty on these babies???

So in honor of my birthday I'm giving away one of my newest favorite things!  Tell one other person about this give away and leave a comment on this post between now and April 5th and I will choose a random winner to receive the set you see pictured at the top containing 5 progressive resistance bands, two handles, a door anchor, an ankle strap and a carrying case.  Now I'm holding you to your honor to tell a friend!  I'm a firm believer in "Sharing The Health"!   The winner will be announced April 6th here on my blog and will have one week to claim their own portable gym.... good luck everyone!!!

This one gets 500 High Fives!
