Need more comprehensive YouTube videos

Fantastic versatile bands., I borrowed a friends I tried it with one of the YouTube videos. I couldn’t believe how versatile and effective it was . I went through your video library and I only see one or two workouts over half an hour. It would be great to have a couple of total body Mat workouts. I don’t have access to a reformer machine.
The snippets are nice, but it’s hard to get motivated for that!!
Thank you so much
Can’t wait to purchase my own !!


Martina has created the perfect band for home and in-studio Pilates workouts. I was never interested in using bands on the Pilates equipment until I discovered the Handibands by Hooked on Pilates on Instagram. Typical bands are hard to attach to anything and also challenging to grip. The handibands are great because they have a loop end with a door attachment and a handle at the other end, and they are adjustable to allow for size and strength differences between students and clients. I love using them on the Reformer and chair for many different applications. I also take them on vacation to keep up my workouts without having a Pilates studio nearby. Handibands are so handy in the Pilates studio for use on the Reformer, Reformer/Tower and chair to create a whole new variety of challenges. I highly recommend them as your go to exercise band if you are a Pilates practitioner or instructor.

PERFECT for home!

As a Pilates instructor, I find Handibands to be such a versatile piece of equipment! I have used a Pilates bar in the past to try to simulate reformer exercises, but the unique handle + loop combination allows you to do so much more. The workouts on YouTube are also incredibly helpful. Very impressed!

Green HANDIBANDS are amazing!

I have been using the green HANDIBANDS for several years...actually longer, and absolutely LOVE them! I love resistance training and these bands are perfect. There are SO many exercises I can do with them, for a full-body workout. I travel a lot, and the bands have traveled the world with me! I highly recommend them to anyone...regardless of your exercise regimen - there is something you can do with these that will fit your lifestyle and level of training perfectly!

HANDIBANDS: A Wonderfully Designed Exercise Aparatus

The Handibands have been designed to be strong and long-lasting and to adjust to the height of the user. They can also be attached to the Hooked On Pilates Minimax. I appreciate all of these qualities and especially appreciate the variety of Pilates exercises that can be done with them, both on their own or attached to the Minimax. They provide a wonderful core strengthening as their basis, as well as a sound work-out for every part of the body. They were designed and created by Martina Hauptmann, who has extensive experience as a Pilates trainer and physical therapist. So she knows exactly what is going to work best for people who choose to use this apparatus. I'm one of those lucky people and am thrilled to add Handibands to my home exercise routines. Thank you, Martina!!
