Powerful Resistance Bands

Our Fitness Bands generate a progressively increasing training resistance and are ideal for training strength and muscle building. The maximum resistance is achieved exactly with the maximum muscle contraction. It doesn’t get any better than this!

Resistance band training – full body training with Fitness Bands

Better than dumbbells

If you compare our Powerbands with dumbbells, two differences are noticeable. First, dumbbells are always used to train against gravity, i.e. roughly from bottom to top. Resistance bands also allow horizontal movements, where the resistance arises in the direction of pull or push. Secondly, the resistance of the Fitness Bands increases in relation to the stretch. This makes the workout especially joint-gentle. For example when bench pressing with Fitness Bands, the resistance is highest when the arms are completely stretched (lock-out). In the starting position, when the shoulders are in the weakest position, the resistance is also lowest. With the Fitness Bands you can do a strength training with moves from bottom to top, moves in the horizontal and from top to bottom.

Fitness bands evolved further

The brand new aerobis Powerbands are our logical progression previous generations of our Powerbands. aerobis Powerbands are made from latex-free TPE and alphabands are made of PU. alphabands are even more compact – making them even easier to transport and combine. All aerobis Powerbands simply feel good and have offer distinct differences in resistance. aerobis Powerbands are way more flexible and offer a lower resistance for an optimal blend between Flex and Resistance. alphaband Loops generate more resistance over a shorter distance.

10 reasons for Fitness Bands from aerobis

  1. Flexible: our Powerbands are super easy to transport and fit in every pocket. Experience a full-fledged fitness workout at home or just take the Fitness Bands with you to the park. The different band thicknesses ensure an intensive workout without the need for any additional equipment.
  2. For everyone: our Powerbands are available in different sizes, strengths and variations. No matter if you are a fitness newbie or a professional – here is a band for you guaranteed.
  3. Strong value for money: No more membership fees and fitness subscriptions. An alphaband is probably the most versatile training device at a small price. A one-time investment for your body and your health, which is worth it.
  4. Versatile & multifunctional: Whether strength training, stability or endurance – alphaband is suitable for all types of training and strengthens the whole body. While the focus of the exercises is often on larger muscle groups, you can of course also use the bands for small muscle groups and your deeper lying muscles.
  5. Very intense: More muscles are used due to the resistance and the absolute freedom of movement. The highest muscle contraction occurs in the most stable joint position for most exercises.
  6. Progressive: By varying the band combinations and band tension, you create a training stimulus that lets your muscles grow. With our “Trainer” Sets you can create a resistance of up to 200 kilograms (440 pounds). So who needs dumbbells?
  7. Highly effective: Faster movements or a strong swing to make the weight appear lighter? There is no cheating when training with our Powerbands, because every exercise remains intensive…
  8. Gentle & Safe: Training with our Powerbands is not only easy on your joints but also reduces the risk of injury. You do not handle any weights that can fall or shift into unsecure positions.
  9. Unique Quality: All our Powerbands are not made of latex, do not smell of chemicals and do not cause allergic reactions or skin irritations.
  10. Durable: The material of our Powerbands is more durable than rubber and latex and becomes less brittle or cracked. Even when overstretched, our Resistance Bands tear less quickly so you can enjoy your Fitness Bands for longer!

FAQ – the most frequent questions about our Fitness Bands

What do you train with Fitness Bands?

When searching for Fitness Bands you will find various terms such as power band, Resistance Band, fitness tubes, gymnastics band, pull-up band or theraband. Not all terms really stand for a different kind of Fitness Band or a different use. alphaband Fitness Bands are elastic Resistance Bands, which were especially designed for strength training and the use as power band. A mobility training is also possible with our Powerbands but our primary goal is to improve your strength.

Why can training with Resistance Bands be healthier than fitness with weights?

Strength training with Powerbands is not only easy on the joints, but also keeps you in a stable posture even during heavy exercises. The more you stretch, the greater the resistance of the ligaments, so that bones, tendons and joints are not stressed too much.

Dumbbell training, on the other hand, always trains against gravity, from bottom to top. If you want to lift a weight when bench pressing and you have not yet stretched your arms completely, this posture is problematic for your joints, because your shoulders are in the weakest position, but still have to hold a heavy weight.

With Powerbands in this non optimal joint-position, the resistance of the ligaments is also low, so that you can spare your joints – even when you do exercises horizontally or from top to bottom.

Why would I buy Powerbands by aerobis right now?

All our Fitnes Bands come in subtle colours. Due to new production methods, they have an improved elasticity and the logical progression from previous generations of our Fitness Bands. Because they are made of TPE and PU, even people sufferering from Latex allergies can train with our Fitness Bands.

What do I have to consider when buying?

  • The right quality: When buying your new Fitness Band, make sure that it is stable, does not smell of rubber and has a pleasant texture. That way you will have fun with your band for a long time.
  • Resistance strength: The strength of the resistance determines how intense your training is. As a beginner, you should therefore start with a low resistance level, which you gradually increase. Ideally you should use the bands as a set, so you can adjust the resistance individually and train your legs with a stronger band than your arms.
  • The type of Fitness Band: Fitness bands are available in various designs. Which band you choose depends on how you want to train. If you plan a strength training you should choose a loop or the trainer. For flexibility, stability and stretching exercises, use an open band, as it builds up resistance more slowly and starts with a weaker resistance.
  • The double grip on the trainer gives you more control and comfort during training. It allows you to do exercises where you need to hold the strap firmly in your hand, such as side lifting, rowing or curls. By the way: you can also easily remove the handle and do exercises without a handle.

Which exercises can I do with the Fitness Band?

Fitness bands are suitable, in addition to strengthening exercises, also for warm-up, relaxation exercises and stability training. No matter which part of the body you want to strengthen and whether you train with your own body weight or do dumbbell-like exercises – the bands can really be used everywhere.

You are still an absolute beginner and can’t do much with the exercises or are looking for more inspiration for your next workout? Then take a look at our exercise videos!

What do I have to consider when training?

  • Read the instructions that we include with each band.
  • Check the band before each training session for damage to avoid possible injuries.
  • Do the exercises slowly and keep the tension for a few seconds.
  • Hold the band firmly, because if it slips from your hand or foot, it can hurt quite a bit.
  • Start off moderately and work your way up slowly to achieve the best possible training progress.

Customer Feedback

alphabands: Sure, they might be a little more expensive then ordinary power bands on the market. But the quality and optics are (like with all aerobis products) exceptional. Especially the fast and easy change of different resistance levels in combination with of the grip and carabiner allow a truly “fluid” training experience. Only through the grip handle users can fully develop enough force without having pressure points or friction on the hands. But even without the grip handle the bands are very comfortable. In my courses the bands have received raving praise several times: “How cool is that? I have never seen this before. This way strength training becomes a lot more fun.”
