ChaiseFitness: Inventive Theraband Exercises
Like WIMBERLEAN, ChaiseFitness uses bands as resistance, but rather than the smaller, looped bands, these workouts use long, flat Therabands. Pick one up for about $10 from a sporting goods store, and follow along with the inventive exercises developed by founder Rachel Piskin, a former dancer. With a combination of higher-intensity cardio exercises, dance-inspired movements, and small isolations, this is a great all-round workout to supplement a more traditional strength-training program.

The skateboard has properties similar to the Megaformers found at Evans’ studio, so this workout can give you a taste of what you can expect to experience when attending a Pilates-style class at studios that use the Megaformer.
