UniBand Resistance Bands for Summer-time Strength Training


Summer is coming and you knew it would. It happens every year at approximately the same time. Are you ready this year? If not, don’t fear. Unibands are here!!
UniBandThe latex-free resistance bands are colorful, resilient and durable. They instantly amp up any workout or routine; targeting problematic, leftover winter flab on arms, legs, backs, glutes and any other danger zones with a powerful laser-like precision.

The Unibands the only resistance bands on the market built to withstand harsh pool chemicals so they make for a fun addition to water aerobics as well.

Unibands come in a range of color-coded resistance levels that facilitate customized  weight training sessions. Just like free weights, the Unibands target major muscle groups as well as the smaller, under-worked neighbors, providing attractive tone and definition.

Unlike bulky, costly weights however, there’s no need to continue purchasing more equipment as your strength training routine progresses over time. No to mention that they are a breeze to store and a cinch to lug around. As with all of our UniBand products, when you buy them from ActiveForever, they ship FREE.

Why you ask? Simple. We are here for YOU. We want you to look great this summer in your sleeveless shirts and two-pieces and whatever else you want to wear throughout the most sweltering of seasons.

We love these Resistance Band exercise routines we found online!


Resolution and Weight/Weight Loss Shockers

aflogo-96x96Perhaps prompted by all the hyper-idealistic discussion about resolutions (which always inevitably revolve around diet and weight loss,) the Los Angeles Times recently reported that a few extra pounds is fine for your health.

I don’t know about you, but this news prompts in me a rare reaction of simultaneous shock and comfort. It evokes the former because it flies in the face of virtually everything else I’ve heard regarding weight and health for ohhh… my lifetime; a.k.a., more than the past thirty years.

It’s comforting because I am—like many of you I’m sure (hey, we’re Americans)—a few pounds overweight. I’m working on it though. My meticulously planned resolutions are on track now for three days and counting.

Regardless, the story is worth a gander. Plus the page features a Dr. Oz “Real Age” calculator. It’s smack dab in the middle of the story in the form of a Google Ad, but as far as ads go, you have to admit, it’s a good one. If you’ve never calculated your real age, it’s worth a go. It can be a real eye opening experience; and depending on your lifestyle, that can be either good or bad. You’ve been warned.

If this short series of bombshells are not enough for you, take heed. Solace comes in the form of another article listed off to the left of the page under “RELATED.” There is a link to a bit of news that ran in late December. It reports that running is actually a more effective way to shed pounds than weight training.

(Huh?) What is going on in this bizarro world of ours?

Personally, I’m happy about this one too. I like lifting weights, but through the years I have found a shortage of things in this world that that offer a greater sense of satisfaction and well-being than a good, hard, sweat-inducing, mind-wandering, run.

Not only does it promote a leaner body and a stronger heart, but it just as equally results in clarity of mind and an overall sense of calm.

Ahhh… 2013 is going to be a great year. I can feel it.

Ooohhh…. Jackpot.
