Alpine Lakes Gear Loop Bands Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I recently got these 3 different sizes of Loop Bands to try because as you all know, I have RA, Fibromyalgia and have joint problems with my knees and my back. It got so bad that they actually had to do knee replacements on both knee's so you know I have the RA pretty bad. These bands came from a company named Alpine Lakes Gear.
Green is a light resistance.
Red is a medium resistance.
Blue is a heavy resistance.
I wanted these bands because I had seen that it said they were good for use in Physical Therapy, which I have taken off and on for years. I thought if maybe I could get a routine down, maybe I could save a little bit on all that therapy. Plus my insurance company only lets me have 20 visits in a year and you and I know that is not enough!!
I also got them for Mike because he has back and neck problems and did have surgery on his neck a few years back. One of his disc's was actually broke in two! And the doctor didn't even know it until she opened him up. It never showed up on the MRI and she thought she was just going in to scrape arthritis I think, we are not really sure what the reason was, but it didn't matter because once she got in there, she had to do a whole new procedure. So, Mike does get relief when he is doing some type of therapy, so these were awesome for him.
Main features:
  • Strengthen and tone your legs and hips
  • Great quality
  • Three different resistance levels
  • Great for physical therapy or for everyday strengthening
  • Three 10 by 2 inch bands
  • Easy to carry, fit right in your purse

  • And I am in total agreement that these are easy to carry with you whether it's to work, on vacation or just to a gym or friend's house. That is one of the biggest advantages because Mike can take them to work and do a few stretches during his lunch hour to make sure he doesn't get stiff since he rides in a van all day.  I also use them to stretch and to keep my knee's limber.

    You can buy the Set of 3 Alpine Lakes Gear Loop Bands on Amazon, which is their storefront.
