GYMPROLUXE Band and Bar Set 2.0


If you’re anything like me, actually getting yourself to the gym can feel like the biggest feat – especially after a long day of work. I’m forever wishing I had my own gym set up at home, but living in a flat I don’t have the space, and the equipment can be super costly. Therefore, when the GYMPROLUXE Band and Bar Set 2.0 came across my desk I was super intrigued – could my dream of a full-body weighted workout from home finally be a reality?

The Band and Bar Set 2.0 arrived quickly after dispatching and I was immediately shocked by just how lightweight and compact the set was. Upon opening the box, I was met with the detachable bar, a padded exercise belt, 6 adjustable belt tubes and a lovely little bag for storing it all in. The adjustable belts come ready attached to the exercise belt, and collectively provide up to 90kg (200lb) of resistance. The adjustable belts have 3 weight options – the white belts are 10kg, the green ones are 15kg, and the black ones are 20kg. This means you can get a full body workout using the same kind of weights you’d likely be choosing in the gym, but all from the comfort of your own home.

Using the Band and Bar you can achieve a whole range of exercise options including bench press, hip thrusts, bicep curls, and chest flys – to name only a few! The set actually boasts to allow you to allow you to do more than 100 gym-quality exercises all from the comfort of your own home. I set it up to do a bench press to get a feel for the bands. Laying with the belt underneath me with only the 10kg belts attached to it, and the bar looped through the belt's handles, I could push the bar up and slowly lower it to complete a rep. It was super simple to set up and I was impressed with how smooth each rep felt. I worried that the bands wouldn’t feel secure or that the bar would make movements hard to keep stable, but each one felt controlled thanks to the high-quality design.

One thing I will note is that as you are using resistance belts rather than traditional free weights you actually experience a constant tension on your muscles throughout the whole movement. This means that as your range of motion increases so does the tension on your muscles and so you can build more targeted gains. In doing this, the set targets each body part to build muscle and strength without overloading the joints. Therefore, the set is actually a lot safer for your joints and should lead to fewer injuries.

After trying out the Band and Bar Set 2.0 for a week I’m impressed. Not only could I do a full body workout, but I could do it with the weights I’m familiar with and all from the comfort of my own home! The weighted bands are easy to interchange, and I personally felt they helped me focus on each muscle throughout each rep for more purposeful movements. I also found working out from home helped me to be more intentional about my exercises as I wasn’t getting distracted or avoiding certain machines that were full like usual. Therefore, I could do all the movements I wanted for my personal fitness goals without feeling rushed.

I loved that on the days I was struggling to decide on a workout plan, I could turn to the GYMPROLUXE app which has a whole range of easy-to-follow workout options available – this was especially great when I was first getting to grips with the set. In the app, there are also a range of workshops and challenges to help give you a boost of motivation when you need it most. I liked that the app also lets you track your progress and even set goals to help make each one just that little bit more achievable.

Overall, if you’re looking to get a full-body workout, but rarely have time to go to the gym, the GYMPROLUXE Band and Bar Set 2.0 is the perfect choice. The set is portable, lightweight, and compact making it perfect for home storage or even taking with you on the go. With the one-off purchase of the set at an affordable price, you can get a full body workout and access to a library of pre-set workout plans – all without having to leave your house! That’s an easy win for me!
