Rated 5 out of 5 by JeanJ Enjoy These Cords!
Now I have 2 of these resistance cords which are so very useful as I try to maintain my fitness prior to surgery on my spine. And, of course they are great to use in maintaining strength on a regular basis, something I will do post-operatively. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oceandancer BIG Resistance in a small package
In the ongoing effort to increase my exercise instead of my waist, I require methods, equipment,DVDs etc that are: accessible, portable,affordable, fun, not boring,interesting AND provide a bonafide total body workout. The covered resistance cord and DVD meet all of these requirements and more!

The summary said for a beginner. It is not. The trainer goes too fast and moves from standing to the floor. I returned both the DVD and the resistance cord.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dblP Buyer Beware
Good price, however, if you are sensitive to the smell of PVC (e.g. "shower curtain smell"), then know that these have that smell. To some people the smell may be faint enough to tolerate, but for me, I got a headache a few minutes after taking them out of the box and my hands were stained with the smell immediately (with very little handling). I spoke to a lovely-mannered customer service representative who confirmed my hunch that they do, in fact, contain PVC. The handles are a foam-covered PVC core and the foam looks and smells exactly like the kind of foam that contains phthalate chemicals that are known by the state of California to cause birth defects and other reproductive harm.
I had assumed that Gaiam would never use such materials, simply as a MATTER OF COURSE. However, I was wrong. According to the Gaiam rep, unless the packaging states something like "LATEX FREE" or "PVC FREE," buyer, you had better beware.
Gotta go wash my hands! (wish I were kidding about that) This product is going back to Whole Foods ASAP.
