Rated 5 out of 5 by Michigan Bound It is working for me!
I purchased this item not only because of QVC, but I was using it at Physical Therapy for my shoulders. Since I liked at PT, I decided I would buy one for home use. I use it every morning doing different moves. I am actually seeing a difference in my arm strength and toning as well. One thing is for sure, need to be consistent with this product. I am having trouble with using the blade with two hands in front of me, but it takes practice..I like the DVD and wall poster to know what moves to do. I am 46 years old. My 72 year old mom has trouble using it, but she just had 2 shoulder replacements..

I just received my Bodyblade today. Wow – what a great workout! What I love about this piece of equipment is that what you put in is what you get out – meaning once you reach a certain point where you can move to the next level, all you need to do is increase your exertion. No need to buy another piece of equipment. I also love that it is small and can be tucked into a corner or closet, which makes it easier to exercise on a daily basis. I can't count how many pieces of equipment I've had to slide under the bed, put into a closet, etc. and then they become such a bother to use, that I don't work out at all. And probably the best feature of all, is that it uses vibration to work multiple muscles at a higher intensity than if just using free weights, weight machines, or resistance bands. I've only used it once, but based on how my muscles feel right now (fatigued!), and how easy and convenient it is to use, I have no doubts that good results are just around the corner. As a side note: Because I stream everything (movies, videos, music) using my TV, iPhone, iPad, and Mac, I no longer have a DVD player so I was unable to use the enclosed Burn & Sculpt DVD, but I was able to find a number of instructional videos on YouTube featuring BodyBlade creator, Bruce Hymanson. If you do not have a DVD player in your home, consider this an option. Plus, there is a wall chart illustrating all the various exercises.
Rated 5 out of 5 I LOVE this!!!
I am in a wheelchair so there is not a lot of affordable exercise equipment that I can use. I have tried the EZ Gym and the Spin Gym; however, those devices put too much stress on my arms and just did not work for me. I saw the Bodyblade on many times but never bought it. Finally, I did about a week or so ago. Kirsten and the developer, who is a PT, fully sold me on it. I thought I had tried everything else so just add this to the list. Boy, I am glad I did!! I watched many You Tube instruction videos which did help. It took me about 3-4 days to fully get the "rhythm" of the blade..and I can't seem to put it down. I haven't been able to do the 6 minutes at a time...but I am slowly working myself to it. I feel as if I can do 30-60 seconds on each exercise at a time, I am doing good. When I get tired, I put it down for a minute, then start again. I feel this helps me to keep the rhythm. For those who feel they cannot use it or have tried without success, please DO NOT give up!! I am finally able to get much needed exercise and my shoulders/arms/neck/back is not killing me nor are making popping noises as they did with the previous mentioned products. Thank you for providing the Bodyblade - now, I can get the upper body exercise as everyone else - FINALLY!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Irish Liz Perfect exercise for anyone who has foot issues!
I have a painful foot issue that will not permit me use my treadmill or walk to exercise. This is the perfect solution! Plus, for older adults (I just turned 58), it strengthens our core and we need that for stability and strength. I am not athletic or strong, but I can do this easily and it does not hurt or tire me out. I feel so strong and good when I use it and it is just the perfect solution for me at this point in my life.
Rated 2 out of 5 by ToTo not for seniors
I am 72 and received the bodyblade. I believe it is a good product and could be used by senior citizens if there was a DVD that was slower and more in tune with seniors. This fact should be made very clear when it is presented on QVC.

I am recovering from my second back operation in four yrs. With muscles that were basically dormant for that period of time,I had to find a way to rebuild my upper body without re-injuring my back. After researching various rehabilitation methods I decided to try the Bodyblade fitness program. I am really glad I did. What I really liked is that it will not let you harm yourself. Until every muscle that is needed to properly perform an exercise is stable you will lose momentum and the bodyblade will stop. I could only perform most exercises for a few seconds the first day,but don't give up. There was significant improvement on the second and third day. You will fill muscles that you didn't know were used in those exercises. I can't believe my progress in a very short time. If you are recovering from an injury,this is the way to go! At least in my case.

I'm going to share my age only because I think it helps with a review for workout equipment - I am 51 years old - have worked out in one fashion or another my whole life. Not a "workout guru" by any means, but try to maintain a fit body as much as possible. That said... the Bodyblade is fabulous!! My current workout routine -- 3-4 days/week 45/60 minutes each time - recumbent bike and resistance -- has not seemed to have any different effect on my body for a while -- workout "plateau" if there is such a thing. Anyway, I bought the Bodyblade, have used it three times this week utilizing the awesome workouts in the video, and oh - my - goodness, this is the best - workout - ever!! Start sweating about a minute into the workout, feel every muscle in my body, was so sore after the first day -- which I think is a good thing at this point since I haven't felt sore from working out in a while -- and am already seeing definition that has been missing in my arms and shoulders come back! There is a bit of a learning curve but it's already becoming easier and the results and euphoric feeling after the workout outweigh any awkward moments using the Blade. This will be a permanent part of my workouts - thank you so much!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by rladydiva1 AMAZING!
I am 57 years young and have recently lost 52 pounds! When I was down 42 pounds and a size 12, I started using the Bodyblade at the suggestion of my trainer of getting in some core and strength exercise and I wanted to tone and get some definition in the "bun" area! I HATE tubes and I find weights, although effective, slow and boring. I saw the reviews about the Bodyblade and decided to give it a try. Why not? I have tried everything else, right? To my surprise, I was able to do all of the exercises in the Super 6 for the entire minute and I was sweating perfusely but it was only for 12 minutes, including the resting periods! Well in a week, I did it 3 times a week, I started noticing this little hard bump in my bicep, Could that be a muscle!?!?!; a little less back fat, worth the price of admission alone!; and the case of bottle water didn't feel as heavy, upper body strength at last! Okay, maybe there IS something to this thing! After six weeks, I had lost another 10 pounds, down to a size 10 and the "bun" area was sitting up a little higher! Yay! To date I have lost a total of 52.5 inches from my body! Since using the "Blade", my body is now a fat burning machine! What is not mentioned in the TV demo but is in the DVD, is that your body continues to burn calories hours after you finish the routine! I took a health assessment in January and at 57 years old I have the health of a 45 year-old . . . due to GOD, first and foremost; good nutrition; exericse and the Bodyblade! Thanks, Bruce!
Rated 2 out of 5 by JRP09 Sadly went back
Really tried hard to use but found it very difficult. They made it look easy in the video but it wasn't. Ended up sending back.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Anniem bodyblade
I tried to like this body blade,but I must be out of energy to work out for any time more than 5 min. if a person starts out at an earlier age than myself, "i will not say how young i am" but this is not for me. i will be sending it back. i really wanted to use it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by verybabyangel Sorry Just Couldnt Get Into it
I thought this would be great but found it to be a bit boring, I can use it when we are on our sailboat but that is about it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dellashops use it everyday
This is harder then it looks that's for sure, but then I'm healing from a broken bone in my back. It takes a real commitment to do this everyday , even though it only takes me 16 minutes to go through it twice. I have one complaint, is says it comes with a DVD giving the impression there's a whole workout with it...not the case. The DVD only shows how to use it. You have to go to the their site & spend another $30 to actually get a video with a workout on it. Was it worth it....yes, to me it was, I wouldn't use it without a video to follow. I just don't like being misslead.
