Theraband Strength Exercise

This is a really good theraband workout for those that enjoy this piece of equipment. If you don’t have resistance bands an old pair of tights will do!  Don’t forget that a lot of exercises can be modified to be done in sitting rather than standing.  Resistance bands can be purchased from many online retailers.  If you are unsure of what to buy contact Steph Travis.
