  • I am very sorry that SparkPeople forces us to watch an advertisement before we see Coach Nicole's excellent guides. Uncle Ben's rice is permanently off my shopping list. So glad we have so many other companies out there with more discrete advertising!!!! - 5/21/2014 7:45:24 AM

  • I bought a pair at a garage sale. Sometimes I work crisis care in Hospice. Many nights I am sitting by the bedside in a chair with the lights low. Of course pt care is my first priority but in those minutes when I have done everything I can, ie repositioning, medicating, comfort measures,
    I find it is a quiet activity to do even sitting that does not disrupt and I can still watch my pt. It helps me stay alert and get some strength/conditio

  • I love my bands. They are great for strengthening the back. I put them in the hinge side of a door and close it and it's very secure. - 11/5/2013 2:08:31 PM

  • I love my resistance bands......I have one that goes up to 75 lbs. It can be used in a door jam......the space between the door hinge and wall. I also have a small one that I use for back workouts. It is shorter than the normal one. Tony Little makes one that has a bar attached to the bands......Boy does that give you a resistance workout. Just a word to the wise.........chec
