So my girls are now 2, and I still haven’t been able to settle back into a regular exercise routine. I totally blame them. HA!
We got going in a couple good grooves over these past 2 years. I really enjoyed the phase where they loved being in their stroller – that was a dream, folks. There’s tons of great walking paths around here, and we had a great time exploring them. They got fussy? No worries! Pop a bottle in their mouths and continue on!
It’s not nearly as easy these days. And I’ve resorted to the idea that, in order to do any kind of actual exercise (besides chasing them around everywhere, I mean) I actually have to do it before they get up in the morning. And it’s true…this blog really isn’t about fitness, but I think that fitness definitely plays a part in the journey to domestication, as far as I’m concerned.
I’ve found a few great internet-based programs that I’m really liking these days. You’ll hear me talk more about a great one called Aaptiv later on this week, actually. So those kinds of things seem to be helpful in my current occupation of “2-Year-Old Twin Chaos Coordinator”. The only problem was, I found I was missing some of the tools I needed to make the most of some of these workouts. And I wasn’t sure how to go about taking care of that issue.
So when Lisa from Limm contacted me, I was a bit curious. I hadn’t heard of Limm before, but I was very intrigued to know that they specialize in home fitness products. Ooo! Right up my alley! I took a peek through their website, and when Lisa offered to send me a set of resistance bands, I was all about it.
Folks, there are SO many different exercises that include resistance bands. I had no idea, until I started getting in to various online workouts. I won’t lie, I tried to make my own! HA! (THAT’S really what we need pics of in this post!) The reason I tried to make my own was that I wasn’t sure what “level” of resistance band(s) I needed! For someone like myself, who isn’t experienced in this area, the world of fitness equipment is a bit daunting. I didn’t want to order something, then find it wasn’t right for me…then send it back…then try another one…ugh! It just seemed like a big hassle. (And what’s an even bigger hassle these days is loading up my kids to actually visit a brick and mortar fitness store to see resistance bands in person!)
Lucky for me, when my resistance bands arrived from Limm…
…I found they were EXACTLY what I needed.
The box itself is about the size of a women’s wallet, and the nifty little pouch fits snugly inside. The AWESOME thing is…
These bands are actually a set of five DIFFERENT bands! Five different levels of resistance, all in once package! YES!
From extra light all the way up to extra heavy, no matter your age or agility level, there’s at least one that will work for you! Plus you can use various bands for various exercises, to build on your strength and continue to grow your endurance! And if one day you’re extra sore or perhaps you’ve slept wrong and have a crick in your neck or something of that nature, there’s no need to change your workout – just use a different band and go a little easier on yourself. How great is that?!
The band itself seems to be very well-made.
Extremely sturdy, and it’s comfortable to use – no pinching here!
Here’s an example of the size (these are my hubby’s hands/arms):
Did I mention that HE likes these bands, too? (I had to go in search of them the other day because someone got a little bit carried away and actually carried them away! HA!) And it’s worth mentioning that my girls think they’re great fun to stretch with – although, to be perfectly honest, they don’t need ANY MORE resistance training than they’ve already acquired just being the typical 2-year-olds that they are. MERCY.
After using these bands for a bit, I popped back over to Limm’s website to see what else they might have to offer for my workouts. From core sliders to jump ropes to yoga balls, and even unique things like traction cleats and agility ladders, there’s definitely an awesome selection of products! Plus, they offer a Member’s Portal with product tutorials and videos, product manuals, exercise programs and external workout videos. It’s all the support you need, and more, from a family business who’s mission is to help people achieve better health and wellness by having more comfort and easiness in doing activities of everyday life.
If having better health and wellness is something you’re working on these days, you definitely want to check out Limm!
