WHAT IS AN ELASTIC BAND?

Elastic bands are, as their name indicates, a strip of elasticated fabric used for fitness exercises, and Pilates exercises more specifically.

This accessory isn't new. It was first used for muscle strengthening for athletes, then by physical therapists for rehabilitation.

Thanks to its stretch, you can tone your body by varying the resistance and tension of the band

They are available in several lengths and resistance levels for effective, adapted strength work. So elastic bands are accessible to everyone who wants to get (back) into shape and tone their body!

WHAT ARE THEY FOR? AND HOW DO YOU USE THEM?

Elastic bands allow you to progressively engage your muscles: You are the one who adapts the resistance you want based on your level and goals. They are easy to use and well-rounded since they allow you to perform a large number of exercises without impacting your joints.

Using specific exercises, you can tone your entire body (arms, glutes, shoulders, abs, back, torso) and improve your performance in Pilates and other sports!
