Product Spotlight: Resistance Bands

Share this:

Spring has sprung and that means a lot of exciting things – warmer temperatures, longer days, the start of baseball season (#openingday), and spring cleaning. Wait – spring cleaning?! Perhaps it’s not what everyone would consider their favorite thing about the spring season, but sometimes a little “out with the old, in with the new” is necessary.

Now that the hustle and bustle of the New Year’s Resolution Rush has calmed down, it’s a great time to do a little spring cleaning around your facility. When you are performing your daily equipment inspection walkthroughs, sometimes the smaller accessories, like resistance bands, tend to be out-of-sight and out-of-mind. However, the past three months of high volume use has no doubt put some wear and tear on your club’s resistance band inventory. It is recommended to inspect all resistance bands every 3-6 months and replace as needed.

Here are a few things to look for when inspecting your inventory:

  • Nicks & tears along the entire length resistance band or tubing
  • Fading or discoloration
  • Damage to handles

As you are aware, exercise bands get a lot of daily use due to their versatile and user-friendly application to all fitness levels.  Keeping your floor inventory in excellent condition and maintaining a small back stock of extra resistance bands is a simple, cost-efficient practice that can make a significant impact on your member experience.

When it is time for you to reorder, make sure to check out our entire inventory of resistance bands and strength bands including our next-generation resistance band, the Power Systems Premium Versa-Tube Plus. The newest addition to our exercise band inventory made its debut last month at IHRSA and is currently available for pre-order.
