SandBarre™ is the culmination of a lifetime of workouts and one big idea.
Growing up, I trained extensively as a soccer player. In addition to the time spent on the field, I dedicated hours to working out, redefining my body and testing my determination. My hard work paid off, culminating in a position on the field at Princeton University and solidifying the importance of fitness in my life.
Fast forward a decade (or so), law school, a loving husband, three beautiful daughters and we come to the one big idea. I was always a believer in the benefits of flat resistance bands but found incorporating them in my daily workouts to be difficult because holding the band hurt my hands. Enter my sister-in-law, Megan. She is not only my brother’s wife, but also a neighbor, a friend and a collaborator in my crazy fitness endeavors.
One afternoon I was describing to Megan the idea of a handle that would alleviate this “grip problem” in order to ease flat band use in more cardio-based workouts. She grabbed a toy ball from the floor (we had six kids under six at the time), and wrapped it in the resistance band. A few play dates later and we had drilled a hole in the ball, threaded it onto the band and unknowingly, turned an ordinary flat band into an extraordinary fitness device.
Two years, several prototypes, and countless hours of experimenting later we decided to bring our optimized flat resistance band to the Jersey Shore. Hence, we created SandBarre™.
We look forward to sharing this great workout with all of you and introducing you to one of the simplest and most innovative fitness tools we have ever used, Bandle Balls™.
See you down the shore!
