Bondi Band Review and Giveaway

Through my association with Fit Approach as a Sweat Pink ambassador, I was asked to review a Bondi Band and give two away!  Bondi Bands are thin, lightweight bands made out of a combination of lycra, nylon and spandex. They are stretchy and fit well without being snug. In fact, I was surprised by how loose the bands fit on my big head and yet they still stayed in place throughout my workout. However, I sweat uncontrollably and actually would have liked a tighter fit. That said, I tested the bands in two of my absolute sweatiest workouts: Hot Inner Fire Flow Yoga and WERQ dance fitness. This was a major leap of faith on my part because I sweat like crazy and have experienced stinging, blurry eyes on more than one occasion from sweatbands that just couldn’t do the job.

Inner Fire Flow Yoga is a format of that can be most easily described as a combination of Bikram and Power Yoga. Class is held in a HOT room. The Bondi Band held up great during this class! I made it all the way to the end without any sweat dripping down into my face. The Bondi Band was much more comfortable than my usual twisted bandana or heavy duty athletic sweat band.

Will the Bondi Band be able to handle my WERQ sweat? Let’s find out! But, first, let me take a selfie…. ;)

WERQ, however, was another story. WERQ is a high intensity dance fitness workout and is one of the formats that I teach. I sweat a LOT whenever I teach WERQ and the studio was especially warm today. So, in addition to my natural propensity to sweat, the room was quite humid. Unfortunately, I only made it through about 25 minutes before my sweat broke through. By 30 minutes, I had to take off my super cute Bondi Band and use a towel.

Here are some pros and cons from my experience:

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Looks the same wet as dry. No tell-tale dark sweat patches
  • Washes easily, dries quickly and still looks good as new

Cons:

  • I think the loose fit let some sweat slip through. I could probably fix this by twisting it into a small knot at the back or wrapping it around my ponytail band.

 

Final verdict:

I sweat much harder than the average person. But, I was impressed by how well the Bondi Band held up during hot yoga. With that in mind, I look forward to wearing my Bondi Band for yoga, weight lifting and cycling. I’ll still need to wear something heavier for high intensity interval workouts and other more intense formats.

  1. You look so cute with your headband :) I’ve heard good things about these ones specifically. I’ve got one of those heads that headbands don’t stay on so I’m always on the look-out for one that will actually stay lol
