GoFit ProGym Extreme Workout Kit
I purchased this product 1 year ago. During normal use of the product ( I use for P90X workouts when traveling), 4 of the 5 bands have broken. When I contacted Gofit, they informed me the products are warrantied for 90 days. I am now down to 3 of the bands and will not use because I am concerned about the others. This was a wasted $59. This product is substandard in terms of quality and has the potential to cause injury. Keep Shopping.

great low impact workout
Nothing will ever beat free weights and gym quality machines for bulking up. The resistance bands are good for lean muscle and anaerobic exercise. I have tendonitis in some joints and the bands do not cause the inflammation free weights did.

Surprisingly well built
I have been looking at resistance systems for a while now and used a small set from another manufacturer. I am like most people and have a hard time with the idea of these things breaking during a workout and flying in my face. This set is very unique in that that I have the fullest confidence that the only thing that may break is the band itself, but the quality of these bands is on par with anything else I have seen. The straps and handles are heavy duty steel carabiners with grommets where double stitched nylon straps are fed through to minimize wear. The carabiners themselves are the type that actually interconnect when closed so that they can't expand even though I highly doubt anyone using these properly could ever bend them (I would be comfortable putting 200# of resistance on the smallest one). The plastic handles are the thickest I have seen and even have a dense, rubber sleeve for grip that looks to be quite durable and will not work itself off since it fits in a groove on the handle. The straps themselves are extremely well thought out. I would describe them, but there are a lot of features to how they are made that make them the safest resistance tubing I know of. Like I said, I have the utmost confidence that this system will not simply fly apart in pieces as I use it. The only disappointing thing is that replacement bands on the GoFit website are made with plastic construction. However, for the value I would not hesitate to simply buy another complete set in order to increase resistance or have replacement bands on hand.

Awesome for training! A must have for everyone. Can utiluze with body weight, weight training, and even stretching. You can get a workout anywhere. I only hope they continue to last long. It is very important to be cautious and take care of these so that they do not tear apart. One small tear could be the beginning to the end of a band.

Easy to Use At Home or On The Go
This product is great and sturdy, and both me and my husband can get personalized strength training from the same kit. It is easily portable and has lots of options. I have used this for physical therapy with the lowest 5lb band while my husband uses it for strength training. This can work the entire body, legs, core, and upper body. It really is awesome. Not going to break these metal clips unlike the other GoFit ProGym set with plastic clips. Save up for this one.

VERY Smelly Product
I suppose that these things do perform their purpose. The only problem is I was only able to use them once! Within 2 days of buying them and taking them out of the box, my whole house had the odor of rotting tires! These things stink so bad they gave me a headache every day that I owned them. After 5 days I threw them away. I could not stand it anymore. If you buy these do not keep them anywhere indoors.

Personal Trainer Recommended
I have been a personal trainer for many years I have worked for country clubs, public gyms and in private homes. Rarely is there a quality home gym product. A client was commenting on an exercise band set she had picked up for her and her husband. We made an appointment to meet so she could learn more personally targeted exercises. I was completely surprised by the quality of this product, including the bands, The fastening clips -- even the heavy-duty nylon loop. These bands do come with only one set of handles. This adds versatility. You can have multiple bands for more resistance,or easily double up on one band. This does taking a bit of getting used to. You will have to find your right combination for each exercise. Because of this, the first couple of workouts may be a bit slow. This is a small price to pay for home equipment that is better in quality than most of the "professional" equipment out there.

Provides an excellent workout. Everything about this kit says it is a well-made quality product. Even the packaging is thoughtful, they give you a bag to put everything in when traveling.
