I feel that I am not alone when I say I have a love/hate relationship with working out! It’s one of those things I like when I’m doing it, but I do not make it a priority as I should. I love swimming and yoga to zen out, and rowing and weightlifting to engage beast mode (haha!). I also enjoy a workout that use my own weight or resistance bands to create results- the best part is this form of fitness can be done anywhere!

TKO joined the fitness scene in 1996, and evolved from a boxing equipment provider into a fitness and wellness clothing-equipment-accessories-lifestyle brand. I will say I’ve never used a four way band like this before, so I was really excited to try it out! The quality of the product is excellent, nylon wrapped rubber and sturdy connections. You know how important that last part is if you’ve ever had a band snap on you (I have and it’s no fun at all). In the above pics I’ve shown a couple of ways you can use a four way resistance band to workout your whole body! Legs, core, and arms are all covered. I don’t know about you, but I love time saving workouts!

We have all played around with pattern mixing in our daily wardrobes, but have you tried it out with you gym gear? I’m loving these varied stripe pants from Old Navy with my snakeskin LuluLemon tank! I know we always grab whatever gear is available when trying to squeeze a workout in, but taking an extra 5 seconds to feel confident in what your wearing can totally change your workout!

That weird thing on my leg is my cellphone “arm” band. I have an iphone 6s+ and it’s huge! I can’t find a band that works to carry it on my arm while working out; my solution is to put it on my leg. My tracker catches all my movement, but I don’t have to worry about it sliding off.

Do you have any workouts you hate or love? I’d love to hear your tips and tricks. Btw Happy Wednesday loves! I hope it’s a fantastic one for each of you.

    How has TKO been around since 1996 and I have never heard of them!? I love resistance bands. They do an awesome job of toning and tightening!!

      Right? I hadn’t heard of them either, but the market is soooo saturated I can understand why! They really do. Hugs, Kait

    Hey Kait, you look so cute in your workout gear. My favorite part of working out is dressing up for it haha. I hate to work out but tries to twice a week! I need to get that iPhone strap, it’s so hard to find something to holds something so bulky!

    Resistance band workouts are tough- but super effective! I did some band work on Tuesday and I’m stilllll pretty sore.

    I have a love/hate relationship with it too. If it wasn’t for my PT for kicking my butt I probably wouldn’t work out as much as I do. It’s still really hard for me with resistant bands – I have really weak muscle memory since my hospitalization. But I think it’s definitely wonderful.

    And how do you always look so great while working out? I can’t even. Lol!! Adorable!

      Going through PT is ridiculously hard!! I’ve had several injuries I had to work through. Just keep giving it your best babe! Awww you’re so sweet! Thanks Mariam! Hugs, Kait

    I’ve never thought about putting my ‘armband’ on my leg but that is BRILLIANT! Loving those maroon sneakers, too! Yay for the TKO bands, I’m pretty sure I need them!

    I’ve never used resistance bands before, thanks for sharing! I’m one of those people that prefer to workout on their own, rather than going to the gym, so I think this would be perfect for me to do at home.

      March 31, 2016 / 4:59 pm

      They so would be!!! I was really impressed by these TKO ones and would recommend them. Happy Thursday! Hugs, Kait

    Can we talk about fitness inspo!? My workouts have drastically lessened since being pregnant, BUT I loved doing HIIT for a workout that’s short and sweet! Maybe not the sweetest, but you get what I mean lol. Cute fitness gear always helps me get in the zone and didn’t realize Old Navy had so many options! I’ll have to check them out 🙂 Thanks for sharing Kait!! xoxo

      Old Navy and F21 both have great option! I love mixing them with my Lucy and Lulu. It’s great you’re still working out with baby- soooo important!!! Hugs, Kait

    I love the idea of putting your cellphone on your leg!! What an awesome idea 🙂 Personally the best workout is always with resistance weights so its great that you are using bands to get your workout on! Sending love xo C

      You are so right! My fav resistance has to be anything with the TRX. It’s so much better on my leg!!! Hugs, Kait

    I’ve never tried a four-way resistance band! I HATE cardio (seriously – loathe may even be a more appropriate word), but you can bored easily with just strength training with weights — I’m excited to try one of these out!

      I was surprised how much I liked it! Ugh cardio is the pits; I try to replace it with swimming though! (Well not replace, but it’s better than running!) Hugs, Kait

    I love using bands so so much!!

    I just got some that I am trying to use during the week when I just need a quick bit of resistence training.

    This looks like it’s so good for your ams, shoulders and back!

    Love it!

    Love this post. Like you, I have a love/hate relationship with working but it feels oh so good when I do it. I work with resistance bands as well mostly for upper body strength. They’re great as long as you’re consistent with them which can sometimes be a challenge. Love your workout gear as well and good idea with the phone pouch! Xoxo
