One of the most versatile fitness products you can own is a set of the best resistance bands. While our experts appreciate handle bands and mini loop bands, we think long-looped resistance bands provide a ton of value to any home gym owner. 

You can perform full-body resistance band workouts complete with mobility, squats, good mornings, rows, shrugs, and more. Plus, if you have the option to loop your bands around one of the best squat racks, you’ll have even more training options like assisted pull-ups, face pulls, and hamstring curls.

In this Living.Fit resistance bands review, I’ll walk you through the details of these high-quality and budget-friendly long-loop resistance bands. 

We Know Bands, Man 

At Garage Gym Reviews, our expert product testers are big fans of resistance bands because it’s a relatively small investment for a compact, portable, and versatile way to work out at home (or anywhere for that matter). Truly, resistance bands are one of the best home gym equipment investments you can make.

And our team understands the benefits of using resistance bands—we’re a group of certified personal trainers, Olympic-level athletes, CrossFit Level 1 Trainers, and gym owners. For this Living.Fit resistance band review, expert product tester and the face of Garage Gym Reviews Everything Lindsay Scheele put these pull-up assistance bands to the test. 

When our expert product testers use and test resistance bands, they are tasked with rating a variety of categories on a 1-to-5-star scale including: 

  • Resistance levels: How is the resistance rated and what is the resistance range offered?
  • Materials: What materials are used to manufacture these resistance bands?
  • Durability: Based on materials and experience, how durable are these resistance bands?
  • Value: Based on price and how you can use these resistance bands, do you get enough bang for your buck?
  • Versatility: What exercises can you perform with these resistance bands?

Before You Buy

  • There are two varieties of long-loop resistance bands on the Living.Fit website: The camo version is latex-free and the solid-color bands are made from natural latex. 
  • You can purchase latex bands without buying a full set. However, the non-latex bands must be purchased as a full set of four. 
  • Full band sets come with a door anchor. 

Are the Living.Fit Resistance Bands Worth It?

In our experience, Living.Fit is worth buying for home gym owners. Not only is the list price less than competitors (like Rogue or EliteFTS) these Living.Fit resistance bands are often on sale. 

At the time of writing this review, the latex bands (set of six) were marked down by nearly $50 from the original price of $128.94. GGR product tester Lindsay gives the Living.Fit bands a 5-out-of-5-star rating for value saying, “Overall this is a good price especially when you buy the set.”

Great for:

  • Lower body or upper body workouts
  • Pull-up assistance
  • Mobility and stretching  

Not recommended for:

  • Folks who want handles
  • True beginners 
  • Buying in pairs

Workout Experience with Living.Fit Resistance Bands

Our tester, Lindsay Scheele, is experienced with resistance bands for pull-ups, leg training, upper body movements, and adding resistance to barbell training. She used the Living.Fit resistance bands for five months before giving her take on the bands. 

Lindsay put the Living.Fit bands through a variety of movements including biceps curls, triceps extensions, glute kickbacks, pull-ups, shoulder presses, and shrugs. 

RELATED: How Effective Are Resistance Bands?

And after several months, she reports the bands have held up and have little signs of wear and tear (even with weekly use). She rates her overall experience at 4.5 out of 5 stars saying, “These are really great and cool-looking with the camo print.”

“I still prefer Rogue Monster Bands, though,” Lindsay admits. “I will say that when you compare the resistance on these bands to other brand-new bands that state the same resistance, the Living.Fit seems to provide more resistance and less give.

“This might be something people like, however for me, I felt like they were just a touch too restrictive for some movements, even with the lightest band,” she adds. While this might not be a dealbreaker for some, Lindsay’s observation might be a tough sell for true beginners. 

Dimensions

Both latex and latex-free Living.Fit long-loop resistance bands are 41 inches long, and provide a 81.9-inch circumference. This length is pretty standard and allows you to perform exercises inside the band. 

Both band types (latex and non-latex) feature different thicknesses. And within each bundle, each color band has a different width, which I’ll break down below.

Non-latex bands feature 3.2-millimeter thickness and the following widths based on color: 

  • Red camo: 0.5” width
  • Black camo: 0.8” width
  • Purple camo: 1.2” width
  • Green camo: 1.7” width

Latex bands are 5 millimeters thick and the following width based on color: 

  • Red: 0.5” width
  • Black: 0.8” width
  • Purple: 1.2” width
  • Green: 1.7” width 
  • Blue: 2.5” width
  • Blue: 3.2” width

Resistance and Usability 

When it comes to the different resistance, you will have no problem building muscle as a beginner or experienced lifter. The thinnest, lightest band in each set provides between as little as 5 pounds of resistance all the way up to 25 or 35 pounds (depending if you choose the latex or non-latex bands). The lightest bands are ideal for a variety of light exercises and warm-ups, and may even be suitable for some physical therapy-style exercises, too.

The heavier resistance bands are often associated with pull-up bands, offering counter resistance to your own body weight. However, the heavier and thicker long-loop bands from Living.Fit are also good for stretching or adding heavy resistance to deadlifts and squats without adding plates.  

RELATED: How to Squat With Resistance Bands

Lindsay rates the Living.Fit resistance bands a 4 out of 5 stars in the resistance category. She docks a point because the non-latex options don’t completely match what you can buy in the latex variety. Below is what you can expect for resistance levels in each bundle. 

Non-latex bands provide different resistance levels based on the following colors: 

  • Red camo: 5-35 lbs
  • Black camo: 30-60 lbs
  • Purple camo: 40-80 lbs
  • Green camo:  50-125 lbs

Latex bands provide different resistance levels based on the following colors: 

  • Red: 5-25 lbs
  • Black: 25-65 lbs
  • Purple: 40-80 lbs
  • Green: 50-125 lbs
  • Blue: 60-175 lbs 
  • Blue: 70-200 lbs

Durability and Construction

When it comes to the durability and construction of the Living.Fit resistance bands, expert tester Lindsay rates both sets of resistance bands a 4 out of 5 stars. “I feel safe using Living.Fit bands,” says Lindsay. 

“I did a variety of stretches and workouts with them and at no point did I feel like they would snap on me” she adds. And this is important, because pretty much all resistance bands have a shelf life. The more you use resistance bands, the more wear and tear the band experiences, which makes it susceptible to fraying and snapping.

“I feel like the lightest resistance one will be prone to stretching overtime, but that is just from using many resistance bands in the past that have done that and this feels similar,” says Lindsay. 

And when it comes to construction, Lindsay gives Living.Fit a 5-out-of-5-star rating. The latex bands are made from natural latex and the non-latex bands are made from an allergen-free, synthetic rubber. 

Living.Fit vs Rogue Monster Bands

Rogue Monster Bands

Rogue Monster Bands

GGR Score: 4.6 starstarstarstarstar
Community Score: 4.3 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

  • High-quality natural latex rubber
  • Versatile use for any workout
  • Color coded resistance/tension
  • Compact and easily stored or transported
  • Available in a wide range of tensions

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • High-quality natural latex rubber
  • Band tension from 15-200 lbs
  • Bands can be used alone or with a barbell
  • Less prone to splitting and breaking than cheaper latex

Cons

  • Pricey due to natural latex rubber
  • Not meant for anyone allergic to latex

Bottom Line

The Rogue Monster Bands are, by and large, the best value resistance bands on the market. They use high quality natural latex, offer a variety of resistance levels, and have free shipping when you buy three at a time. If you're using these as stand-alone or with a barbell, these are what we suggest, although we do recommend checking pricing on EliteFTS before a purchase as they sometimes have sales that win out on price.

If you’re looking to buy good quality resistance bands that are rated for Powerlifting and CrossFit, look no further than Rogue Monster Bands. These bands are sold in pairs for anyone looking to add accommodating resistance to deadlifts, squats, or bench presses. 

Rogue offers eight different resistance bands ranging from 9 pounds of resistance all the way up to 225 pounds per band. There are packages you can choose from or buy a single band (or a pair of bands) alone.

Customer Experience 

The Living.Fit website has a phone number, email, and live chat feature if you need to contact customer service. The brand offers a standard 30-day return policy, but keep in mind it explicitly states the product must be unused and unopened.

When shipping on the Living.Fit website, you may notice the traditional, solid-color, latex bands note there is a lifetime warranty and the company will replace a band if it were to snap. However, that language is not featured when shopping for the latex-free bands. Because this is not consistent with both products, Living.Fit earns 4 out of 5 stars for customer service and brand policies. 

Ordering and Assembling the Living.Fit Resistance Bands

Living.Fit earns a 5-star rating for delivery and setup because it’s easy to order, there are plenty of payment options, and there is no assembly required. You can pull your resistance bands right out of the carrying case and start using them right away.

Customer Reviews

On the Living.Fit website, there are currently no reviews on the non-latex bands and only 20 for the traditional bands. That said, our product testers went to Amazon to sniff out some additional customer feedback. There are almost 100 reviews on Amazon and the average rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

One review notes that the resistance bands are quite wide and it can either be difficult to hold on or hurts the hands. Speaking as a personal trainer, I will note that I’ve heard similar complaints when using wide resistance bands for pull-throughs or rows. 

Final Verdict of Our Living.Fit Resistance Bands Review

After a multi-month testing experience, GGR expert tester Lindsay Scheele absolutely recommends Living.Fit resistance bands to fellow lifters and home gym owners, especially if any of the following are true: 

  • You’re on a budget but want durable resistance bands. 
  • You need something strong enough for assisted pull-ups. 
  • You want a latex-free option. 
  • You appreciate free shipping.
