I'll buy rehab for a Pro (or anyone else for that matter), but active training and conditioning for a Pro? I don't think so. (I don't mean there aren't Pros who use them, but I seriously doubt there is a Pro who has musculature so feeble that a single surgical tubing is going to provide enough resistance to do much of anything beneficial).
