Bodylastics is smashing the competition with its range of varied intensity resistance bands coupled with door and clip systems. It delivers a home gym that works, for a fraction of the cost of other home gyms or health clubs.
Up to 98% cheaper than other home flex equipment systems
With other resistance band home systems retailing at up to $2,500 and the average health club in the US costing $660 annually, it’s no wonder than Bodylastics is building such a devoted following. Its home system starts at $50, but is it worth it? We tested the product to find out, and bring you this review.
What is Bodylastics?
Bodylastics is a complete home gym system that uses resistance bands to create tension and stress on your muscles (that’s a good thing!). As your muscles adapt, they change strength and shape, so the system is designed for people that want to tone up and reduce fat, or build muscle.
In tough economic times, we sometimes have to forgo our treats, including those expensive gym memberships. Home gym machines can cost thousands and use up valuable space, so the technical wizards at Bodylastics designed a compact, lightweight but intense training system using resistance bands and simple tools that can turn any room at home into a gym.
What’s the science behind Bodylastics?
Elastic resistance training is the smoothest source of resistance available; light, flexible and incredibly powerful. By combining bands, users can generate up to 120 levels of tension, turning the system into a multi-dimensional muscle working machine, and delivering a strength level individual to the user’s needs.
Bodylastics uses a patented DGS (Distance Governor Safety) technology to prevent overstretching the bands to breaking point; the elastics are 99.9% snap-resistant, even up to an incredible 150lb of pressure.
How is Bodylastics different from conventional home gyms?
As well as taking up a fraction of the space needed by most home gyms, the Bodylastics team have developed two main design aspects to deliver the best ever body.
Firstly, the Quick Clip System attaches solid aluminium elastic clips to handles and ankle straps to the bands, enabling the combining of bands for amazing results. The color-coded bands vary in thickness and up to all seven bands can be clipped to handles for maximum resistance! And secondly, the Door Anchor stabilizes bands to any door to recreate the best gym exercises at home. No more expensive lateral pull down machines!
The key competitor home flex system comes in two styles, one just over $1590 and the other just under $2500. However, the first one only gives 70 movement options and the second one just 90 options, whereas Bodylastics offers more than 140 individual exercises.
Say goodbye to expensive gym memberships!
The Bodylastics equipment has been designed to appeal to all types of user, whether they’re using it for yoga, ab workouts or muscle building. In fact, there are 100 workouts available for everything from pilates to bodybuilding.

Our Personal Review of Bodylastics
Our product research gives the product a resounding 10/10 for simplicity, cost and above all, results. Compared against the cost of gym membership, this product is a wallet-friendly package that really delivers. In my opinion, they are the best resistance bands on the market, whether you’re new to strength training or right up to bodybuilder level.
5 reasons why Bodylastics is better than other bands:
- 3 Guarantees: Lifetime defects warranty, 90 day satisfaction guarantee, and 6-weeks results guarantee.
- Bodylastics is built with high quality components. The bands are durable and feel very sturdy.
- They are highly snap resistant (99.9%)
- The Quick Clip System – This allows users to combine bands much easier than other brands that don’t have the quick clip. Regular bands with handles attached require you to hold multiple handles at once. With Bodylastics, you can attach one handle to about 6-7 bands at once (see example pic).
- The Accessories – Depending on your selected kit, you will receive some selection of accesories. In the kit we purchased we received the handles, ankle straps, anywhere anchor, door anchor, workout DVD/manual, and carrying case.
