Resistance bands are one of my favorite pieces of fitness equipment! Not only are bands super versatile, they easily fit in a carry-on suitcase, making them perfect for travel. Don’t let a busy schedule keep you from fitting in a good workout – join me from your home, hotel room or even your office, for this 30-minute total body sculpting workout that can easily be done in a small space. 
Please keep in mind that resistance bands vary in thickness and strength, so listen for my tips on how to modify the way you use your band during some of the exercises.

Check out the workout on YouTube, or watch via the embedded video below!

    Great workout. I wish there was a way to add Jessica Smith's workouts to the fitness tracker. Meanwhile, I scroll through workouts trying to find something comparable. - 7/7/2016   1:20:37 PM

    I loved this workout... Why can I not add it to my fitness tracker though? I'm sure I burnt more than 115 calories following along. - 5/5/2016   10:09:17 AM
    This video did not work on my computer, but I found it directly on youtube. Excellent work out. Jessica is always good! - 5/5/2016   5:23:29 AM

    Maybe it's just because I'm extra tired today but this one was a bit too challenging for me - my heart rate was frequently above the max on my monitor. - 4/1/2016   10:09:36 AM

    @ RDO3875- Sparkpeople is kept free to us users because of the ads that they allow on their pages. So, unless you want to start paying a fee ( not saying thats what they'll do) then I'd just disregard the images. I don't like them either, btw... - 2/6/2014   1:09:23 PM

    I'm also interested in how you would log this as exercise. Would it fall under aerobics? - 2/6/2014   12:31:10 PM
    I am trying to add this to my fitness tracker but can not find the calories burned. - 2/6/2014   10:09:16 AM
