Have had it for about a week now, and I would say it has payed for itself. Was getting frustrated working out at gyms and this has worked as a decent alternative. Only annoying thing is finding new exercises. There’s a “exercise library” section in the app but they’re not all there. Otherwise pretty happy with my purchase.
So far, so good
Ordered the lite and realized I needed the original for the exercises overhead. So I exchanged and paid the difference and it sure as hell made the difference! Great product.
This is a good exercise choice to develop strength. I could no longer lift weight because of elbow issues.
I have injuries that won't allow me to lift weights. Hoping Gorilla Bow can enable me to still meet some of my goals
Great products and great communication with the company. The workouts I been having are amazing
Gorilla Bow Lite
I’m a small lady and most of my spine is fused with metal. It’s important for me to be able to strengthen and lengthen my muscles without too much impact. The gorilla bow lite is perfect for me. I can leave all three bands it came with on at all times so my workouts are seamless.
Heavy to Light
Much better for me... I also have the Heavy Bar... I'm getting older and this works just fine.
This will not change my life but I will use it since I bought it.
Love this product!
It is the perfect size for my wife! The Gorilla Bow lite is easy for her to use in her workouts.
An incredibly versatile and simply elegant piece of equipment.
I'm 32, and my joints feel like they are 60 after my time in the Army. I used that as an excuse when I got out of the military to sit around and gain about 40 pounds. Being self-conscious to go to the gym again, I started looking at alternative options. My brother turned me on to the Gorilla Bow. And hey if a doctor says its great, it must be right? So I bought the Lite version to get back into losing weight and build up my strength and stamina, and save some money while I made sure I was actually going to use it. I have used it EVERY SINGLE DAY, with very light workouts 2 days of the week. My joints don't hurt. My body feels good. And my mind feels even better. The amount of different exercises that you can perform on a simple bow design is absurd. Hats off for taking a tried and proved design, and applying it to an at home work out system. As others have said, I highly recommend getting the protective sleeve (I will be ordering mine shortly) as I hate standing directly on the bands while doing curls and squats. And it can be a chore to get the bow on your shoulders while doing squats. Other than that, simply put, if you are looking for an at home system for your workouts, or want to better yourself and start working out before you try a gym, this is DEFINETLY worth checking out!
i bought two bows one for me one for my wife.
we love the ease of changing bans
we have downsized our living this is the perfect exercise equipment. compact lightweight full body exercises
Great equipment for when you don’t have the time to go to the gym.
I love my gorilla bow!
Nice, sturdy, comfortable in my hands.
I am very well pleased with the Gorilla Bow.
I love my light pink bow already and I only had it for 2 weeks. It literally replaces being at the gym when you don’t have a gym to go to.
Love it, just what I was looking for!
Great work out. I have recommended it to friends
Great product, but I wish I would have purchased the original because it’s bigger. I’m still able to get a great workout from it.
I absolutely love this! Thank you for making a product that i look forward to using everyday!
Awesome workout tool
Great quality and perfect size. Super easy to transport wherever your workout may take you. Love the Gorilla Bow Lite, definitely recommend to those who prefer solo/outdoor workouts rather than gyms.
Loving it so far!
I think it's great, and I've already gotten some use out of it; although, after getting the lite model, I kinda wish I had just gotten the original version for more versatility.
I will likely upgrade to the original later on and gift the lite to someone who wants it.
Great product, excellent for recovery
The bow is fantastic, and my bands were sturdy. What I wish I had known, and felt unclear to me from the descriptions, is that the lite bow is not suited for longer range motion like full squats. I’m in the exchange process now and hope that goes well!
I will also say that over Covid, I broke my ankle and had frozen shoulder, so I can’t box or do the full HIIT activities I did before hand. This bow honestly gave me a great workout and didn’t overly tax my recovering ligaments. I honestly cannot recommend it enough.
Would be perfect if it was a little longer...
I am 65, bought this to firm up and lose weight, only had it a month but enjoy the 20 minute work out and some other exercises targeting certain areas.
EASY TO USE FEELS VERY STURDY
Gorilla Bow Lite
It’s is a good starter bow for sure! Easy to figure out; and I got right into the online exercises, though with how tall I am I may need to get the original bow soon for better usage.
Product is great, easy to use and gives exactly the kind of work out I’m looking for. Some times bands are hard to keep in place during certain lifts. Also the website is confusing as what’s shown in the pictures wasn’t what was sent. Had to go by the full description to figure it out And even that was confusing but overall satisfied with the product and results.
Exactly as advertised!
Easy to Use and Really FUN!
I'm impressed with how easy the Gorilla Bow is to use, and combined with the GB6 workout plan, I've been having a BLAST.
Love it! Great piece of equipment for doing exercise while watching tv.
Excellent for travel or home fitness.
So far, I am very satisfied with my gorilla Bow Lite, I can replicate mmany of the exercises I do at the gym on the bow, targeting upper and lower body and obliques. The Lite is perfect for me, sat my height and weight. I also have dumb bells in varying weights, cordless weighted jump rope, gliders, resistance bands with handles and ankle straps, and I ordered a step bench and a sand bag, and my home gym will be complete. I plan on cancelling my gym membership.
Absolutely love it!
It is so easy to use and I love the workouts on the app.
The size is good, the excercises are good, the 10 lb band starting fraying after the first workout
Gorilla I'm seeing results
Great for small places. my studio apartment has limited space. so Gorilla fitness make s it possible for me to work out my muscles to build strength and tone my figure.
No regrets about my purchases it is a very well-made bow and the variety of resistance bands to choose from as well the portability to take anywhere definitely recommend.
So glad I finally got this. Nice addition to my home gym.
Great addition to our home gym. Quality is excellent and customer service is outstanding! Everyone should consider this in lieu of bulky weights.
Great fit and quality finish
Feels like quality build. Easy ergonomics.
Such an amazing exercise tool. I could feel the workouts working after just getting started. I can already tell I’m not going to be able to put my bow down.
Great product, especially for these times
I recently displaced a rib in my upper back and the exercises suggested to me where rowing-based exercises and lat pulls. I don't feel comfortable going to the gym. Then I saw this and it seemed like a great solution. Within a week of using the bow daily, I was neck and back pain free! I'm so happy with that. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I wish I had understood how small the Gorilla Bow Lite was going to be. It was marketed as kinda the obvious choice for women. At least, that's how I understood it. But I'm 5'10" and probably should have gone with the original Gorilla Bow. With that caveat, I would suggest this to anyone (and have to a few people).
I am very pleased with the quality of Gorilla Bow products. I am using the eight week workout plan. Thank you.
Great all around fitness equipment. Working on strengthening and toning so this was a must have piece for the home gym!
Lite ultra. Nice product.
Chose the lite /ultra as it was a less expensive option. Smaller size bow works fine for me. Can do the same exercises. Good band workout.
Solid piece of Equipment
Great piece of equipment! Very versatile and is easy to get a solid work out. Band resistance is a bit different from straight weights but it definitely is an amazing tool for training, exercising and working out. It is also a cheaper alternative to buying a whole bunch of weights too so that’s a major plus. I would definitely recommend this product to others no matter what your exercise level is.
I bought the gorilla bow light ultra for my own personal use, and I feel like it’s perfect for me. After my first few uses I was sore so I knew I was working muscles I hadn’t been using for months since quarantine started and I was starting to get rusty.
I love that it’s solid and feels secure since I wasn’t sure how it would be using a bow with resistance bands but it’s great so far and with this one I can see it being easy to travel with as well- I just need to get the case.
I also ordered the original gorilla bow with the extra set of ultra heavy weights for my 16 year old son and I’ll review that once we get it and can try that out as well.
Good quality equipment
Good workout to do 2 to 3 times a week!
Seems to be quality product and weightlifting tool. Takes learning to trust to use without fear of bands snapping. Wish there were more quickly accessible workout ideas, the videos are too long.
Makes working out suck a little less
Gods know I've tried other at home gyms in the past. none of them nearly as successful as this has been so far. The bow is easy to use, and pretty much helps you figure out where you should start. Can't string the bow? Go lighter. Easy. I can get the workout I want at home now with this. No gyms or stressing about how the heck am I going to haul this when I move next.
I'm pretty happy with my purchase. For once the algorithm really knew how to get me.
Made with quality materials, easy to use and convenient.
Inexpensive. Easy to use. Tons of online support and workouts.
Great Product for training on the road and home
My husband has the original and it was awkward for me to use. This one is the perfect size for me to use.
I haven’t used the bow yet, but a coworker recommended it to me. I’m sure it will be of good use for toning, losing weight and building muscle.
So far, loving it!
May come back and update this in a few months, but so far I'm loving it! I'm a pretty extreme beginner, but it offers enough resistance and structure that I really do feel the workout, and I've noticed a little improvement already. Early days yet, but right now I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a simple home exercise tool.
Love the bans easy to use
Great to workout next to my husband with his Gorilla Bow - we can do the same workout with modifications that fit our individual goals. It's a great addition to our usual workouts. The Lite is the perfect version for me - I still get the intensity of the band workout without the size of the Original.
Excellent resistance and equipment for an on the go person
Just started so far loveit! My Doc has one and suggested it might work for me.
Once a competitive sprinter, I had to give up a lot of activities to arthritis and now a neurological;ogical condition which has brought me to atrophy. I saw the Gorilla bow advertised on Facebook. Having been an archer from childhood, it appealed to me. I have just started with the 10 pound band. It feels great and I use it several times a day.
have not received it please advise you obviously think i have it
Easy to use and excellent workout for my girlfriend.
Great product! Love the workouts!
A great tool for staying in shape
A more affordable method to stay in shape while saving space in your home. My only regret is not purchasing the full sized version but this works fine!
Full workout in my living room. Super convenient and easy.
Really easy to use and provides a way to work out at home effectively! I recommend this product.
Convenient, portable, and customizable
This is a great piece of equipment. I find it to be very versatile and seem to be added different exercises daily. I decided on the light version and couldn’t be happier. Shipping and delivery was fast and I was surprised because some users complained about slower delivery times. I received mine within days. I’m very happy with my gorilla bow.
Great concept and equipment
I would give it five stars but the cables are not long enough for me to stand and workout. I am 6'3" and can only get the bar to half a curl before the rubber cords stretch to the point they turn white.
Great for older men
I was a little concerned about buying the “Lite” since, although I’m a 74 year old, I had been seriously working out at the gym every other day for quite some time, however the “Lite” is perfect for me. I did get the additional set of the heavier bands, just in case. I have not needed them yet. Lots of good videos for individual exercises but few showing complete work out. It would be nice to have a wall chart illustrating each exercise. Overall very pleased with the quality of the product and the variety of exercises possible using it.
Just over lower back surgery and so far this has been a great help to start firming and toning things back up! Easy to use and stores nicely in the closet.
It is a good work out kit for the home
Purchased for a smaller woman 5'1" 125lbs. The bands are a little more resistance than the regular bow, but not a huge difference, excellent for the user. We got the basic and then ordered the heavy band set quickly and love it.
The gorilla bow lite version is a great quality product. Huge Variety of workouts can be done. Best part is there are lots of videos on YouTube demonstrating the workouts/exercises.
Extremely lightweight, intuitive to use, and goes everywhere. So far, I'm working out in front of the TV and on the back deck, overlooking my garden. A big improvement over freeweights!
I like that I can implement many of the same moves as I can at the gym an not sacrifice so much of the exercises.
Easy To use
The Bow is easy to use. The bands are easy to put on the bow. The instructions for the exercises are great.
It’s a great product
LOVE IT! It's makin' me APE!
Terrific compliment to my summer workout. Beautiful design, easy to use and follow the programs outlined. The videos too will help you.
Have only had my Gorilla bow for a week, but I am loving the product and the videos so far!
Cannot do full range of exercises with the Gorilla Bow Lite
I did a fair amount of research between the regular and the Lite version and thought the only difference was the weight capacity rating. I wanted something to just tone and keep up my muscle mass so everything pointed to the Lite version. I also chose the Lite based on price. The Gorilla Bow Lite is a well designed and high quality piece of equipment. I was also happy with the shipment which arrived about 1 week after purchase. My wife and I are smaller in stature and we like and use the Gorilla Bow Lite daily.
My only complaint is that I wish the description would say that there are certain exercises that you cannot do with the Lite. We cannot do any exercise requiring you to stand and raise the bow over your shoulder. This includes squats, any type of shoulder press, etc... I don't want to give up my Bow Lite but I would probably purchase the regular model if I were to do it all over again.
Great during the lockdown.
Worth the wait
Even before the pandemic hit, I'd been looking for the unicorn that is the perfect compact home gym, for a while. Don't get me wrong, I love weights, but I don't have room for them at home, and I hate having to pay for a gym membership to gain access to them.
I'm 5'7", reasonably fit, and this thing is perfect for me. It's rare that a single fitness item can deliver on the promise of a total body workout, and three days in to use, I can say with confidence that you'll be able to perform "burnouts" and heavy-ish lifting (to a certain extent) on any exercise that you'd normally do with dumbbells, barbells, and a bench.
Customer service was pretty patient with me (I e-mailed twice in the span of about 4 weeks - I'd ordered two; one as a gift to my sister-in-law), and always got back to me within a day. Even if it takes a bit longer than anticipated to receive, I'd argue that the Gorilla Bow (in any incarnation) is well worth ordering. Overall, I'd say my experience with this company and product, so far, has been fantastic.
We ordered both the regular size and the lite version. The lite version was the perfect size for myself (5'4") & my husband (5'8").
