What is the VELAband?
The VELAband is the go-to resistance band for squats, lateral band walks, and hip bridges that does not break, rip, roll up or dig into your skin when you use it. It is the best resistance band for travel, gym and home workouts. The design (camouflage) makes it stand out wherever you are making it a functional accessory with style. Correct your squat pattern, increase resistance on body-weight movements and make progress on yourself in style.
When to use the VELAband?
The VELAband is great to use when you are looking to advance your bodyweight movements and are not yet ready for barbells, kettlebells, etc. Another great use for it is for the more intermediate and advanced lifters who is short on time or has a long workout ahead of them. The VELAband allows you to do a dynamic warmup so that you can get "under the bar" sooner and save time.

The Vela band really helps target muscle groups which otherwise aren't strengthened as intensely. For example, squats with the band forces you to push your knees outward keeping them in proper position over the toes and better targeting abductors. It is very comfortable and doesn't pull on your skin allowing you to focus on workouts and proper form. The band is perfect width and the tension is tight enough to provide ample resistance without impeding proper form.
The band is comfortable against the skin (unlike the rubbers ones at most gyms that hurt when the tension is increased. The band also has just the right amount of tension for squats and working the legs. The material is durable and doesn't weaken over with use.
I was absolutely floored when I tried the VelaBand. Out of various bands I've used, there's almost always a huge design flaw: easily snaps, not enough resistance, too much resistance, or doesn't stay in place. And in my opinion, there's nothing worse than being half way through an exercise, only for a band to uncomfortably roll up your legs and pinch you in the process. The VelaBand covers all of those blemishes - the material is thick, comfortable on bare skin, easy to put on, doesn't move out of place, and has just the right amount of resistance. If you're sick of bands that break mid workout and pinch your skin - I highly recommend going with the VelaBand. It'll last long-term and you're getting more bang for your buck.
VELAs mission is to build a community of like-minded individuals from all walks of life that are focused on growth and improvement. We do this by focusing on our core values (RESPECT/RECIPROCITY/GROWTH/COMMUNITY). We do this by being apart/hosting events, hosting workouts, meetups and providing quality fitness products with style while not losing any functionality to the fitness communities to help achieve their goals. We continue to be involved in our communities to educate them on our products, health and wellness and betterment of self.
On my journey in life, I've seen respect take me many places and has allowed me and others to open up in ways before thought unimaginable because a baseline of RESPECT was established. When respect is given, it is usually shown back (RECIPROCITY) to the individual/ group/ community etc. (RESPECT) and (RECIPROCITY) shown by people allows for a community to really flourish (GROWTH) in ways unimaginable. It allows people to do great things to the workplace/gym/home and anywhere. Magic can be made here and this is what VELA stands by as we create our community.
As VELA grows as a brand, we will grow with the communities we are involved with. One hand washes the other.
