Why Portable Gym?
Among popular new year's wish lists, 'getting in shape' or 'be healthy' is probably at the top of the list for a lot of people.
But the reality is we are all busy with working, caring kids, meeting people, etc. So it is easy to forget what you planned for and waste money on a gym membership. The fact that you have to go to the gym for a workout creates a lot of barriers in your mind, and it is so easy to skip with ongoing matters in your life.
But what if you have a portable gym you can access whenever you want? That sounds like a game-changer, isn't it? BodyBoss 2.0 portable home gym is one of the best game-changers. Let's take a closer look at BodyBoss home gym.
Why BodyBoss Home Gym?
Bodyboss 2.0 portable gym is a full set of resistance bands, a base, door anchor, limb straps, handles, and a workout bar. Nowadays, the resistance band is popular because it is lightweight and takes up less space, and most of all, it is affordable.
Yes, it is a good addition to your home gym, but the resistance band alone has a limitation in terms of the number of workouts you can perform.
BodyBoss's vector fit base and door anchor widens the spectrum of workouts you can perform with resistance bands. With these accessories, you can perform an endless variation of workouts.

Vector Fit Base
What is included?
Vector Fit Base:
This is the feature that makes BodyBoss 2.0 unique. Before the vector fit base comes out, you need to step on the resistance band to perform squat.
With Bodyboss, you can just hook the resistance band at the anchor of the base and perform squat comfortably without stepping on the band. Also, you can adjust the band's resistance by adding more band or shorten the band by hooking through several anchors.
The base has five hold up anchors on each side, which makes lots of variation possible. It has a non-slip grip at the bottom, so you can perform your workout stably.
The resistance band is covered with clothes to protect it from wearing off. It comes with two resistance bands, and each has 30 lbs of resistance.
You can increase resistance up to 80 lbs by playing with the anchoring method. But if that is not enough for you, you can purchase additional resistance bands.
Collapsible Workout Bar, Handles, Limb Strap, and Door Anchor:
This is another special addition that multiplies the variation of workouts. A collapsible workout bar makes it possible to mimic all sorts of barbel workouts.
Door anchors make it possible to simulate cable flying workouts. Also, based on where you put the door anchor on your door, you can perform endless variations of workouts.
Handles are good for simulating workouts with dumbbells, and lib straps are proper for cardio boxing.
