I became annoyed with the strap falling off, so I hand sewed the pocket onto my workout pants.
It took only a few minutes, and now the pocket never moves. I purchased a kit with a mat, a leg band, and two resistance bands for a medium and heavy workout. I did fold the leg band behind the pocket when I sewed it on, but I'll be cutting the strap for the next set of workout pants I get. (smaller set when this one no longer fits)
May God grant us the ability to choose wisely, May God grant us the courage to say no, and may we be thankful for what we have, rather than focusing on what we do without.
I LOVE the baby sock idea!! I can definitely use that for the Wii Biggest Loser workout too, when they require the Wii Remote to go into your pocket (which my workout pants don't have). :) Thanks for sharing!

It was tight when I first got it, but there are other ways to hold the remote. Someone suggested to use a baby sock and just pin it to your pant/short leg. and it works. It just regesters when you move. I love the game and it's very much worth the money. When I started the strap didn't fit at all and now I can get it around my thigh. And as of right now that is the only workout I do.
Do onto others as you would have them do unto you. Cause in the end you will get paid back
Can I just say how happy I was to read this - the leg band fits me but when I put it on I thought 'Oh my gosh, my thigh must be massive' as there wasn't a lot of left over strap. They have really made it a bit small considering their target audience. Granted, I need to put it on quite tight to make it stay on with my trousers, but it isn't super big!

It barely fits me and my thigh is 27-28 inches. It does come with a piece of velcro about 4 inches long to help adjust the size and you could do the same with more velcro picked up from walmart, home depot, wherever.
I do wish the leg band was larger. Id imagine most of us looking at the game arent exactly olympic gymnasts, so I would think it be smarter to err on the larger side than the smaller side for the product. I picked up a spare leg strap from gamestop, but that set was even smaller...I couldnt even get it on let alone actually use it.
