Built for Clubs
TheraBand CLX Consecutive Loops deliver versatility and ease of use that change how people experience exercise and rehab. It's all in the loops, which are versatile, simple, and inspiring. According to multiple studies, the elastic resistance used in TheraBand CLX Consecutive Loops is equivalent to weight training in strength curve, muscle activation, perceived exertion, and strength gain. Provides multiple unique grip options, enables exercise like open and closed hand grips, holding objects with resistance, no-grip-required. Enables never before possible exercise like simultaneous upper and lower body work, opening amazing possibilities for the series athlete. CLX has the potential to be an entire gym right in the palm of your hand.
- Lightweight and portable
- Color-coded progressive resistance system allows users to recognize improvement as it happens, as you grow stronger you can move up to the next color
- Each band measures 5 Foot long X 4 Inch wide and comes in three color-coded resistance levels:

Perfect for Home
Athletes come in all shapes and sizes which is why the 5ft TheraBand CLX loop is a versatile choice. Choose from several color options that represent different resistances for a choose your challenge type workout. The TheraBand CLX with Easy Grip Loops™ delivers unparalleled versatility and ease of use that may increase exercise compliance to improve patient outcomes.
TheraBand™ bands and tubing produce similar forces between similar colors. The force produced by bands and tubing is directly related to elongation. Each color will provide a specific amount of resistance at the same percent elongation, regardless of initial resting length. For example a 1-foot piece stretched to 2-feet (100% elongation) will have the same force as a 2-foot piece of the same color stretched to 4-feet. The force slowly increases as the band or tube is stretched.
TheraBand™ bands and tubing are color-coded to identify the level of resistance. The color band or tubing you use depends on the results you want to achieve with your strengthening routine. The lighter resistance levels (tan and yellow) are good for persons in the early stages of rehabilitation. Medium levels of resistance (red and green) are good for those persons starting a strengthening program, or for persons increasing muscular endurance. Higher levels of resistance (blue, black, silver, and gold) are for more advanced exercisers needing more resistance. Consult with an exercise or healthcare professional to determine which resistance is best for you.
With normal daily use, the exercisers should last for many months. However, they won't last forever. They may break if stretched beyond 300% elongation, or if they are used with small tears or abrasions. These small tears and abrasions usually occur at the ''connection point'' of the band or tubing to an attachment device. Therefore, always inspect the band or tubing (particularly near the connection) before use. It is recommended to use the TheraBand™ Door Anchor, Exercise Handle, and Assist for connection. Be aware that jewelry, fingernails, and other sharp objects may cause small tears or abrasions. Always protect the eyes during exercise with elastic bands or tubing. Do not stretch bands or tubing beyond 3 times their resting length (300% elongation).
Always inspect your bands or tubing for signs of wear, including small tears, abrasions, or cracks before use. Pay particular attention to the connection point. Always replace the bands or tubing with any sign of wear. With heavy use, such as in a physical therapy clinic, bands and tubing should be replaced every 1-2 months. The bands and tubing will not last forever, and will experience normal wear and tear with extended use. However, they should be safe to use as long as there are no visible signs of wear.
Always secure the bands or tubing to a sturdy, non-movable object. The Thera-Band Door Anchor should be used to secure one end of the bands or tubing for exercise. It isn't advisable to tie the exerciser to a door knob or to ''close'' them in a door; this leads to early breaking. The Thera-Band Exercise Handles and Assist can be used to grasp the exercisers. To connect to the legs or arms, use the Thera-Band Extremity Strap.

TheraBand™ brand products comprise the world's leading line of progressive elastic resistance exercise products for professional rehabilitation and wellness training. They are developed and manufactured by The Hygenic Corporation.
We don't recommend stretching bands & tubing beyond 300% elongation (4 times resting length; for example, a one foot length of band stretched to 4 feet). The bands and tubing are more susceptible to breaking with greater than 300% elongation.
Elastic resistance has different properties than free weights, in that elastic resistance doesn't rely on gravity to produce force. Both elastic and isotonic resistance provide similar strength curve patterns (''bell-shaped''), similar muscle activation levels (EMG), and similar strength gains. The main difference is that the resistance produced by elastics must be quantified by noting the amount of stretch in the band or tubing. For example, a red Thera-Band resistive band produces 3.7 pounds of force at 100% stretch.
Immerse the band or tube in fresh clean water in a sink or under a running faucet. Rub a small amount of mild hand soap over the wet band or tube and then rinse in fresh water. Lay flat to dry, or drape the band or tube over the back of a chair or similar object and allow to thoroughly dry. Once dry, rub a small amount of talcum, baby powder, corn starch, or similar powder over the surface of the band or tube to prevent sticking.
It's very difficult to answer that question online because everyone is different. Before exercising, you should consult a healthcare or exercise professional to guide you in developing a safe and effective program. We offer pre-made exercise programs developed in conjunction with healthcare professionals, you can search for by body part at Thera-Band Academy.
The most important consideration is to be sure your band is not too short. If your band is too short, you increase the risk of snapping. A general rule of thumb is to use a length of band or tubing equal to the length of the limb you are exercising. The pre-cut lengths of Thera-Band resistance bands are 5 feet long (1.3 m), which is typically long enough for most exercises.
The TheraBand™ System of Progressive Resistance consists of 8 color-coded resistance levels. The color of the band or tubing denotes its resistance level. Tan = Extra Light Resistance Yellow = Light Resistance Red = Medium Resistance Green = Heavy Resistance Blue = Extra Heavy Resistance Black = Special Heavy Resistance Silver = Super Heavy Resistance Gold = Maximum Resistance In general, tan and yellow are used for early rehabilitation or very frail individuals. The most common resistances are red, green & blue. Black, silver and gold are typically used by athletes
TheraBand™ resistive bands and tubing are made of natural rubber latex made into sheets and tubing. Latex-free TheraBand™ resistive bands are made of synthetic rubber. The trademarked colors indicate the resistance levels.
TheraBand™ resistance bands / tubing are not intended to be used for oral exercises. Do not chew the resistance bands / tubing. These products are not toys and should not be used without adult supervision.
