Users drive development of new Les Mills resistance band technology

Users drive development of new Les Mills resistance band technology
October 30, 2018

Leading global fitness innovators Les Mills has introduced a new innovation in resistance band technology – a durable and functional band – that enables users to confidently execute resistance exercises and take their workouts to the next level.

The LES MILLS SMARTBAND is scientifically engineered to deliver a consistent force increase throughout the extension range. This helps to ensure correct technique is maintained throughout the exercise movement range and to ensure users to get more out of their workout.

The SMARTBAND has a flat profile which reduces anchoring and rolling issues, and the nylon webbing moves freely through the spine. This ensures ease of movement and improved functionality through a range of movements. The compressible handle improves comfort and fixation under foot, and also provides an optimal surface for gripping when held in the hand.

Advising that the SMARTBAND was developed in response to user insight, Les Mills Enterprises Chief Executive Vaughan Schwass advises “users were having difficulty with existing products and seeking a durable, highly functional resistance band (so) we engaged the leaders in materials science and design technology, raising the bar and proving that not all resistance bands are created equal.

 “We’re confident that this innovation addresses the needs of gym owners and empowers users to get better results from their workout. User feedback to date has been overwhelmingly positive.”

There are two resistance band options, the SMARTBAND and the SMARTBAND Extreme. Every SMARTBAND comes with a two year warranty on manufacturing faults.

The SMARTBAND is the latest addition to Les Mills’ award-winning suite of SMART TECH exercise equipment. It has been designed for use with Les Mills’ CXWORX™ and LES MILLS TONE™ programming, personal training and at-home workouts.

The SMARTBAND matches with the SMARTBAR™ and SMARTSTEP™, and seamlessly integrates with both the SMARTBAR and its plates – opening up a suite of new workout possibilities.
