What a great time to talk about Toning Tubing!
A major recall of a competitor’s tubing brings to light just one of the many ways that j/fit strives to bring affordable quality to everyday fitness gear. When you work out with tubing, you are putting an enormous amount of pressure on the clips that secure the tubing to the handle or strap. Inferior clips can snap, resulting in bruises and cuts. Over 250,000 units have been recalled so far.
We realized that this was no place to skimp, and our tubing features one of the highest quality clips available. So try out the following tubing exercises with confidence, knowing that j/fit always puts the safety and satisfaction of it’s customers first.

Resistance tubing is a great way to add variety to your workout; it allows you to train with freedom of movement, and it is portable enough to go anywhere. Whether you are looking to mix up your routine in the gym or need a simple, yet effective workout on the go, j/fit resistance tubing can help you!
Lets first talk about the importance of resistance training, ladies and gents. Building lean muscle mass is crucial for your health. Not only are you protecting your bone and joints as you age, but you will burn many more calories while you are sitting at your desk because muscle mass is metabolically active! Ladies, do not shy away. I promise you will not get “bulky” or “manly” by building lean muscle mass. In fact, it will help you burn fat and give you a “toned” look! Definition of “toned”= build muscle and decrease fat…plain and simple.
With the summer weather finally arriving, many people do not like working out in the gym, and why would you? After all, this summer weather will be gone before we know it. So, grab that resistance tubing and hit the outdoors.
Get a great full body workout without setting foot in a gym! Some of my favorite movements using the resistance tubing include: Squat to Press, Crab Walks, Chest Fly’s, Booty Busters, Lateral Raises, Bicep Curls, and Tricep Kickbacks. The two exercises featured in the video are squat to press and booty busters! Please check it out to learn how to do the movements correctly! I like to superset these exercises with some active rest in between movements such as, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, sprints, etc. Keep tension on the tubing at all times to maximize your efforts. I recommended 12-15 reps with 3-4 sets. Get creative with your workouts so you don’t get bored. I highly encourage resistance training 2-3 times per week along with cardio, stretching, and a proper nutrition/supplementation program.
j/fit resistance tubing comes in many different lengths and resistance levels. They are an affordable alternative to using weights in your workout. If you use them regularly, with the right technique, you can achieve great results.
