Luckily, fitness resistance bands can make it super easy to get in a great workout at home or while traveling. These bands are super lightweight and easy to throw into a bag to take on the road. Resistance bands are great for a multitude of movements for yoga, stretching, mobility, physical therapy, and even tough home workouts.
