Bodylastics Max Tension Fitness Tubes System
The Why: We were skeptical at first, but these elastic fitness tubes really do work. The surgical-quality elastic resistance bands create tension and stress on your muscles as they move.
The Health Bonus: A toned, lean body with very little expense and plenty of portability.
What We Liked Best: There are 140 exercise video demonstrations on the Web site broken down by body part.
What We Liked Least: The DVD and manual should be free with the tubes but cost $4 extra.
What It Replaces: Expensive home gym equipment, weights and/or a gym.
The Price: $59.95.
Other Offerings: Terrell Owens Super Strong Man Fitness Tubes System, Basic Tension Fitness Tubes System.
Where to Buy: www.bodylastics.com
Ingredients: Surgical-grade elastic tubing, solid aluminum clips, handles, ankle straps, door anchor, manual and DVD, travel bag, and free online video instructions.
