First Place Mini Band
Mini-Bands have a durable design – the bands will stretch up to 2.5 times their length.
Mini Exercise Bands are 9" L x 2" W. Use them for lateral steps, leg extensions and shoulder stabilization exercises. If you're looking for a band for tall athletes, or to use specifically above the knee, see our XL Mini Bands.
- Mini-Bands can be used anywhere – on the field, at home, in the clinic or gym, or even when traveling.
- Effective for both upper and lower body training.
- By using resistance bands for dynamic warm up, you can target the hip and shoulder complexes.
- When used in conjunction with other exercises these band sequences can help activate the core as well as prime movers, synergists and stabilizers in the hip and shoulder area.

got tiny legs? these are for you.
These bands are too small... it's nearly impossible to fit two legs into them. I generally use bands like this over the knees, ankles, or feet and as a straight-sized person, I can hardly get both feet/legs in one band. Honestly, they're almost worthless...
Able to continue my physical therapy at home!

These are the same bands at I use with my physical therapist. I ordered them so I could continue my exercises at home. I really feel my legs/hips getting stronger! Now, with the Covid-19 outbreak I had to postpone my sessions. So glad I have the bands at home! Very affordable too. Even the therapists were surprised at the price. They thought they'd be twice a much.

I have used these in my gym and also want to have a set at home. They are a regular part of my workout. Ordering them couldn't have been any easier!

I have been using these bands for the past few years! The 9inch ones are perfect for someone my 5' frame and work really well with my Beachbody programs.

Recently purchased "First Place Mini Bands" from Perform Better and they worked great. The best bands I have ever used - they don't roll, durable, and creates the perfect band workout.

Bought these to use with residents in assisted living. I can only really use the yellow and green. The other two are way too resistive. They love the yellow and green for exercise. Would order again.
Great quality bands!

Gotta Have 'em

These bands have always been a vital element for training my clients. Whether I'm training fighters or general fitness clientele, these bands offer a phenomenal method of strengthening hip function. They are great for improving endurance and stability in the hip complexes, and are also useful in stimulating rapid action to these muscles for speed/agility training. I have used many different brands of these bands over the years, and I can vouch for the quality and durability of the "Perform Better" brand. None have held up as well or lasted as long as these. As a trainer, these mini bands are an essential tool in my arsenal.
I like it.

A great product

First used this mini band in my physical therapy sessions. Now I use it every night as I do the exercises that were recommended. They work well and hold up. These are the ones I will buy when I need more.
Will stick with these bands
by Karen -
My physical therapist introduced me to these bands. I use it for exercises to strengthen my hamstring and piriformis muscles. I use the yellow. They lasted for about three months of daily use before they became a little worn out and then snapped. So I ordered a bunch more. I'm a 56 year old female runner and use the yellow. My husband uses the green for his back SI joint exercises.
Try just 1 first; not whole set.
by C E Stewart
I bought the set of one of each kind and can only use the lightest (yellow) one. All the others are way too difficult for me to use and maintain good form. I’m a woman in decent shape so I think these are geared toward a typical man’s muscularity. And they roll up immediately when exerting which is uncomfortable. Only good thing is that it didn't cost a ton.
by Jeanne -
I'm very pleased with my bands. I discovered these bands while working out with my trainer. I decided to buy my own & after a small issue with one breaking during the first use I haven't had any issues.

Great bands---Came in the mail right away---Ordered ten because I use them every day!
Wrong bands too small.
by Rhonda Craig
Don’t be mistaken. These bands are not the bands to put around your thighs. They are the 9 inch and not the 12 inch. I can’t use them at all. It is very unfortunate that the company does not provide a better description.
by Annie -
Have only used them a few times, but they are all great--exactly what you'd expect them to be.
by Kristen L -
This should be a 5 star but the 5th won't light up! These are great for monster walks and clams!
Enjoy these Mini Bands

Bought the first place mini bands on recommendation. I really enjoy them. They strengthen upper and lower body well. My wife uses them also. Thumbs-up from this 73 year old. Thank you for this product
