Obsessed with Bala Bangles? The Brand Also Makes These 4 Workout Accessories
At this point in 2021, we’re going to assume you’re already familiar with the famous Bala Bangles. (And if you aren’t, they’re wearable weights that can be strapped to your ankles or wrists, they were featured on Shark Tank in February 2020 and were practically sold out during all of last year.) But the Instagramable workout gear isn’t the only item from this company that we’re obsessed with. There’s the three-pound Bala Bars we actually look forward to using and the aerodynamic ten-pound Power Ring that makes any Pilates class feel super challenging. Because after what feels like 45 years in quarantine, we’ll take anything that promises to make a series of lunges in the living room feel less like torture and more like a boutique fitness class.
1. The Power Ring
Ten chic pounds of power will add a little spice to your Russian twists and jump squats. But seriously, how cute is this ring? The shape and evenly distributed weight will allow you to get in as many reps you need, without throwing you off balance.
2. Bala Bars
The rumors are true: Workout equipment can be aesthetically pleasing! Weighing in at three pounds, these modern weights are great for for barre, Pilates and even sculpt yoga classes. The width of these bars make for an easy grip and the soft silicone material will prevent you from developing blisters, even if you decide to do two classes back-to-back (consider us impressed).
3. Bala Bands
Grab this five-pack of resistance bands and put them to work in your next Peloton strength class. They range from super light resistance and top out at extra heavy, meaning these are great for both low intensity cardio classes and more advanced HIIT sessions. The set comes in a mesh case (so you’ll never lose them) and the intensity level is clearly labeled on the bands (so you’ll always know which one you’re grabbing).
4. Bala Sliders
If you’ve been making do with sliding your limbs on plastic bags or dish towels for lunge variations it’s officially time for a professional upgrade! These little sliders work wonders, whether your home workout area is carpeted or has hardwood floors. At about seven inches in diameter, they’ll easily fit under the balls of your feet and the palms of your hands. “I love these and the whole Bala system. These are great and easy to use,” one reviewer writes.
