Bodyblade Total Results Fitness Program w/DVD, Chart & Guide
Great for Toning - What a Feeling!
I bought the Bodyblade to supplement my fitness routine, specifically for core toning. I've been using it for about a month. I found that it took a few weeks to reach that "sweet spot" where the way I moved the device activated my core muscles - at first I felt the effect in my arms and shoulders. But the DVD "classes" helped tremendously (something that has never worked for me), and I stuck with it because I love the feeling of the workout and how I feel at the end. I especially like the 6 Minute Workout routine. I'm now using it 4-5 times per week and adding the other recorded sessions to my routine. For those who are struggling with the learning curve as I did - stick with it - it's GREAT when you get to that sweet spot, and it REALLY works! I see improvements in the mirror! A great gift for YOU!
Could Work For Some
First off, I want to say that I believe this is a good fitness product. My problem is that you need a very large empty space if you want to do the workouts. I found myself worrying about hitting things around me and above me, which took away from the enjoyment. The notion of just doing the blade moves alone while watching television did not really appeal to me and I knew I would not use the blade that way. It really was my fault for not thinking my purchase through and I am grateful for QVC's return policy as sadly, my blade is going back. The workouts were well designed and certainly worked up a sweat, so if you have the space, I would recommend giving it a try.
I bought this for my sister for Christmas 2014 - It was my first purchase and I must say it is GREAT! This gift was the talk of the "party"! Everyone was trying it out and everyone loved it! Thank you QVC for easy pay options! I bought this on 12/21 and got it on 12/23!! PERFECT GIFT, PERFECT TIMING!! This item was the first of many orders from me!
The 6 minute workout is really great, you can certainly feel it. I am 65 and I love to fitness walk 4-5 miles a day, but I needed to add strength training, so this really fit the bill. Right out of the box, you can begin to use this and feel the results. This is great for us baby boomers who want to stay in shape, so give it a try.
Holy cow Batman! Took it out of the box and started working out. No kidding, barely two minutes was all I could handle on each arm! Triceps were yelling at me, better than any other tricep motion I have ever tried. I can't wait to build up my endurance and reap the benefits. I'm a 50 year old female that has had tendon surgery in my wrist, so hand weights are hard for me to handle and lift. The bodyblade is light and I'm not lifting all that weight, easy to hold. Try it, and give it time!!
Definitely recommend for lazy people like me.
I bought this as a gift to myself at Christmas. I LOVE IT. Who CANT do 6 mins?? You can even do some of it while sitting on a stool.I did it 10 minutes ago and my muscles are fatigued and it feels good. Goodbye to those saggy triceps....and I'M 50 !!! You couldn't pay me enough to get mine back!!!
Fun while moving your muscles
I have limited mobility and this is easy to use. My husband loves it. The DVD and chart are really helpful. I love this product. Well worth the money. Way more expensive elsewhere.
Simple And Effective
Sometimes it's the simple tools that are the best and this is one of those. It's not really bulky and I think I'll use it often.
not for a senior
very hard for someone with arthiritis in their shoulders to do
Wasn't quite sure...nice surprise!
Had a mastectomy and can't lift the heavy weights I was accustomed to. I thought this might give me the muscle definition I was looking for without hurting myself. I watched the "learn" portion of the DVD, which I'm glad I took the time to do and I absolutely love it!!! I've also done the workouts provided on the DVD and they are tough! Even though I've worked out my entire life, my triceps (back of arms) are my weak link. This Bodyblade really targets that area in a way that my weights just didn't. And the Core exercise/s are fantastic! It feels like doing a plank on the floor but your standing up and everything just tightens up from the front of your stomach all the way around your love handles and in 30 seconds to one minute I have to stop! The only problem is my 13yr old son keeps grabbing it and I have to go looking for it when I need it!!!!
Because of the price, I was hesitant to purchase this. Wasn't sure it would do all the things he claims it does. It came last week and I've been hooked since I took it out of the box!! I immediately felt it working my arms. Every time I go near it, I have to pick it up and start using it. It's easy to do but at the same time, you do get a workout.
I purchased the bodyblade in hopes to keep motivated and keep motivate despite a knee injury and a few months later a car accident. I am able to do many of the exercises, and I so far the routine I am doing is about 6-10 minutes long. I can do them as intense or as low key as I need. An unexpected benefit-I've noticed an improvement in posture since I've started using this and I thought my posture was already pretty good! I also love how little space it takes up, I just stand it in the corner of my my door frame inside my closet.
