Meet the people of Victorem #9


Interview with Solange

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself

Hello, my name is Solange. I’m 36 years old. I’m married and have an 8 year old boy. Right now I’m working out at Crunch. I also do music and take care of my family and love to decorate my house and keep it neat. I like traveling and outdoor sports. Mostly a beach girl since I was born and raised in the Caribbean.

When and why did you started working out?

I’ve always loved sports, when I was at school I did 8 years of classic ballet and also played volleyball in my school team. Then at 20 I started going to the gym, I loved aerobics and group classes and then I started to lift weights.

 

How did you first hear about Victorem?

I heard about Victorem through Instagram and decided to give it a try, was a little tired of rubber bands breaking, so these were the first fabric bands that i saw.

Did you used resistance bands previously in your workouts? If yes, how was it?

Yes, mostly the rubber ones, they give you a different feeling but also break easily.

 

What was your first workout with Victorem bands?

Hip abductions, donkey kicks, banded squats and hip thrusts.

What’s your favorite exercise using the bands?

My favorite one (hard to choose) would be kick backs.

 

What changes did you noticed when you started using resistance bands

Victorem bands improve the engagement of other muscles during an exercise and also adds difficulty. I always have them with me when I travel, since they are light weighted and I mostly work the booty with them. I like the feeling of these bands, which is different from rubber bands.

 

What motivates you?

Exercise just makes me feel great and look great, it is something I do for me everyday. 

What would you say for someone just starting out using resistance bands?

You absolutely need to include these in your workouts, I warm up with them and prepare my booty for an intense workout so my muscles will be recruited faster when starting the workout.

 

Fun facts about you that you haven’t told anyone

Even though I’ve been training for so long I still haven’t used the black band lol.
