Gwee Gym Reviews
Gwee Gym is a next-generation design of resistance band which works muscles equally throughout the entire range of motion. This is in contrast to typical resistance bands which increase tension as they are stretched. While this may not seem like a compelling enough feature to choose Gwee Gym over a standard band, it should be noted that such a feature allows for a significantly higher number of useful exercises.
With a resistance band, exercises using small motions would not yield enough resistance to provide much benefit. With Gwee Gym’s constant tension, however, you can perform a larger number of useful exercises without worrying if the tension would be great enough to provide any benefit.
Gwee Gym is best for lightweight exercise. Those looking to bulk up will probably not get enough resistance to see significant results. It is, however, an excellent way to achieve a light workout without a trip to the gym. If you think the device may offer too light of resistance, you may want to opt for the Pro version or wear wrist weights.
The cost of $70 could be of concern to those who find a regular resistance band does the job. When comparing the two, however, it is apparent that Gwee Gym delivers a superior experience.
A Gwee Gym Pro was added to the product website, and the original has been re-branded as Gwee Gym Lite. Whereas the original Gwee Gym offers 1.5 pounds of constant force tension, the Pro provides 2.25 pounds of tension. For those trying to determine which model to choose, the product FAQ reads:
We suggest the Gwee Gym Pro to those who are more experienced and workout consistently, or to people who lift weights over 10lbs. We have many customers who enjoy the benefits of having one Lite and one Pro; that way they can use the Lite to work arms and shoulders, and use the Pro to work stronger muscle groups, such as legs and abs.
Although we feel that Gwee Gym works better than a standard resistance band, not everyone may feel it is a better purchase than other resistance bands on the market, many of which are significantly less expensive. It may also be argued that a simple pair of dumbbells would offer many of the same benefits.
Gwee Gym is a next-gen exercise band which offers constant resistance throughout the entire range of motion. While it may resemble a typical resistance band, the end result is a much more balanced workout.
