Band to beat ex­cuses

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

A LO­CAL fit­ness trainer has spent the bet­ter part of the past year de­vel­op­ing what she has called “ex­cuse proof” work­outs.

Leanne Shorter said the re­sis­tance-band work­outs she has named Re­sist It were ideal for those new to ex­er­cis­ing or for those re­luc­tant to take it up.

“I’ve worked with all sorts of people, both here in Aus­tralia and over­seas, work­ing in gyms, do­ing per­sonal train­ing and leading group ex­er­cise classes, for people from all dif­fer­ent walks of life,” she said.

“Most people sim­ply couldn’t find ex­er­cises that could suit their in­di­vid­ual needs, so that’s where I came up with the idea for Re­sist It.

“Un­til now, ex­er­cise prod­ucts have tar­geted young women try­ing to lose weight and men try­ing to buff up. I felt it was time for some­thing dif­fer­ent – work­outs based on life­style rather than your age or gen­der.”

Ms Shorter said the Re­sist It work­outs could be mod­i­fied to suit.

“The bands and work­outs are very adapt­able, which is why it would be hard, or even im­pos­si­ble, to come up with a de­cent ex­cuse not to ex­er­cise,” she said.
