Learning Pull Ups with Assist Bands

One of the things we value most about our cross training program at Ultimate Fit Zone in Monmouth County is our ability to not only give people an awesome workout, but we have the opportunity to teach people new skills, help them achieve new goals and make them feel good about themselves.

When people seek out fitness classes in Monmouth County, we believe we have something more to offer them than just a great workout.  The skills and new exercises you learn in our gym boost your fitness-classes-monmouth-countyconfidence, push you to do better each time and help you set new goals for yourself.

Learning pull-ups with the assist bands is an example of learning and mastering new skills.   The majority of people who come to our fitness classes have either never done pull-ups before or have tried to do them- but can’t. Learning to use the assist band (also called a resistance band) helps you do pull-ups by off-setting some of your weight to make it easier for you to pull your chin up to the bar. The bands come in a series of colors which progressively give you less support, making you rely more on your own strength than the band to complete the exercise.   At first, we start you with the band that gives you the most support while you get comfortable with the movement. After you master the first band, we move you down the progression to the next color.  We keep moving you down through the colors until you are able to do pull-ups without any band at all.  It is a process that doesn’t happen over night.  But, if you stay with it and keep trying, you will see results and progress sooner than you think.
