Question from Greg


Any recommendations on no-Voc home exercise equipment?  Looking for options from stationary bicycle to resistance bands.

-Here is an example of resistance bands :
-Home gyms are heavy on plastics.
-There may be some good examples of stationary bikes.

Lisa’s Answer


I think it would be a great business idea for someone to make truly safer gym equipment.  Unfortunately, I don’t know of any that are truly No-VOC.  I’m not sure that’s possible.  The way I look at it is that the benefit of exercise outweighs the risks and you should minimize exposure where you can.  Also, home gyms are a very good place to have a good air purifier that captures VOCs.

The resistance bands shown seem better.  It’s good that they are not made with PVC but it doesn’t tell you what it is made of.

I haven’t looked into stationary bikes.  Readers, any suggestions?
