Aesthetic Fitness: Which is the best resistance band brand?Ace Fitness, the website of the American Council on Exercise, has published resistance band reviews. The council recommends SPRI StrengthCords. The bands feature a strong, braided material and soft foam swivel handles. They are color-coded and numbered, from easy to difficult, helping you keep track of your progress as you tone and gain strength. However, the council states these bands tend to be a bit more expensive than other brands.
