savgal1211: ANY exercise is better than none and this Fluidity bar is a great idea for
older people!! I use Jillian Michaels Yoga meltdown, Yoga Inferno, and her
Kettlebell DVD!! Now THOSE are Killer!!
Lauren Vargas: this video is stupid! seriously bashing a product because u don't like it!
it works for lots of people and people lose weight doing it! There is not
only one way to work out and lose weight!
Krishna Stacey: Would love to see a review from somebody who has actually tried a fluidity
bar and workout, over an opinion from somebody trying to hawk his own
weight loss method. First of all, the bar itself is a rather cool feat of
engineering. Cantilevering creates stability you cannot get from a chair or
"a dowel at Lowes" Good luck with that when you lean back to focus on a
specific muscle group and pull the whole thing over. I have had mine since
2008 and it will still support me as if it was bolted into studs in the
wall, no matter how much I am hanging off or pulling on it. Second, it is
an excellent, and rather ass-kicking full-body workout, IF you put the
effort into it. Like anything, you only get what you give. "ooh women on an
informercial, I'm he-man, I think it's icky!" Whatever.
Sonya Morgan: HECK you can just do the exercise
Stephanie Brooks: I'm on a weight loss and get fit journey. However I do not like to work.
And it sounds as if you know what your actually talking about as far as
what items to trust . I've been looking into the new Zumba incredible
results system. What are your thoughts on the system?
koalabear07100: Personally, I love the fluidity bar. I am a dancer and I like to use it in
between ballet classes to improve my flexibility and strength. I see great
results with it.
C Wells: This is a $400 bar (!!!!). A B-A-R. I can run to Lowe's and grab a dowel
and some lacquer for under $20. Also, all the moves I've seen are stolen
from Callanetics and Pilates. Save your cash. Build your own bar or
attach to the wall and buy a Callanetics book or a Pilates book. $20 for
both. I've done both Pilates and Callanetics, btw, for years. They do
Emily: Good review. I bought a fluidity bar off craigslist for 125 yesterday
(better than the 400 new). I haven't used they DVD that came with it. I
wanted to use it with my Lotte Berke DVDs and other DVDs that require a
chair because my kitchen chairs aren't good enough for that lol. The bar is
good but the infomercial is gimmicky like you said.
Lc Weathersby: I have no idea how I got to this review but Im glad I did. Most people on
here are idiots and telling you not to jump to conclusions, which is
exactly what they did. Great video your point was heard by those who have
common sense, dont worry you cant fix stupid.
Stephany Maurer: I suggest you head back to school and take a kinetics class...or five.
Working the bodies majors muscles against gravity and your own body weight
is effective. If you can't understand that small bit of physics and body
mechanics, there is no way I'm taking your advice on anything else.
gr8musicrox: Thanks for the info. I love my fluidity bar but don't like her work outs,
myself. I am a dancer and flow artist so i love my bar for stretching out
at home. It beats using the handle of my stove and having the oven door pop
L P Reyna: Better to have my hubby build me the barre and do the online workout! I
know I will continue to get stronger, since I have already been doing barre
using the back of a chair ~ doing the exercises for Barre. I just do my
own pushups the old-fashioned way. Already I have dropped from a tight
size 4 to a 0. (of course, I eat clean ~ cut out the processed foods and
don't eat after 8) But, my progress is real and in 9 months' time. I
enjoy barre exercise (cannot pay for the classes) so I will definitely have
my husband make me a barre out of pvc. He loves me. He will do it. :-)
Phil Barille: I've used the fluidity bar for over 7 years and look fabulous at the age of
AND my husband uses it now for his back and swears by it. This guy is full
shirl schafer: I just took a Fluidity class and it was difficult (I'm a fitness
instructor). It is a mixture of ballet and pilates. I don't know who he's
talking about but a Fluidity Class will kick your butt. Many gyms offer
this class so there's no need to purchase a bar.
Khristine White: I see that you originally posted this video in 2009. As you hadn't really
reviewed the actual product at that time and reviewed the infomercial
instead. I was wondering if you have taken the time to try the Fluidity
Bar, and if yes, what were your results and how long did you use it?
Kristen Schultz: If you listened to him, he says Michele has no idea what she's talking
about. He didn't say that working out on a barre didn't give results.
Denise Little: I have been using the barre and workout for the past 8 months and I can
tell you that I have never in my life been more fit. I recommend this
exercise program for people like me who have had a hard time finding an
exercise regimen that they can stick with. As an aside, I went on a
grueling hike in Hawaii last month, and was delighted that I could keep up
without a problem, and my muscles were not even stiff in the days
afterward. Thanks to Fluidity.
Sonya Morgan: I can't seeing paying that much for just that bar, heck I can go to the
youtube videos and do the things they show on their and hold onto my
Mindy Thompson: Clearly this guy has never done a fluidity or pure barre workout. Both of
these workouts do work the entire body. Yes, the movements do appear as
though they are isolated movements but what he fails to realize is that you
may be working your leg in the movement you are also using your abs, butt,
and arms. This guy is an idiot. I burn more calories (average 650) for an
hour of fluidity or pure barre. He is just trying to sale his program.
Peculiar Pulchritudes: I am 37 and my body has never looked better using this bar for 4 months. It
DOES make you use muscles you didnt know you had. And as you increase
intensity with the videos you start working out new muscles. My ass has
lifted at least 3 inches and doesnt jiggle as much. Love love love this
workout! You have to combine with cardio and a good diet or your results
will not be as good. At a recent party a friend thought I looked so much
better than before that she ran out and bought the bar to get the same
results. Try it!! It is life changing. I think this guy is more hung up on
the semantics rather than the actual results. Whatever. I only car about
DiemondRush: Insomnia + T.V. = Informercials. Sadly, I had not heard of the fluidity bar
before now. It caught my attention. I am an impulse buyer in rehab (6
months sober), so before checking out the website with my cc in hand, I
pull up Youtube and clicked on you. Great info dude! Dont know how much
Fluidity costs. Dont care. I'm sure my sturdy chairs and stools at home
plus a bar style dvd from Amazon or Ebay or some free stuff off of YT will
work just fine. Gonna tone this junk in my trunk! THANKS LOVE!
Jennifer Quinn: My physical therapist said this looked like a great workout. Why the
Deborah Muscatello: Thank you
Julieannasworld: Thanks for making the informative video, I also thought the fluidity bar
looked good...in theory. But rethought everything she was saying in her
infomercial too. All I have to say to some of these responses....WOW! Some
people sound very angry! Life is toooo short to be so negative and
confrontational! So this guy made a video...his opinion...if you don't like
it turn it off! Geez it is no reason to go on a tangent! Thanks again
guy...for the info video.
Cecily Jamelia: Honestly, you could use a chair and a mat to do most of these movements.
Any exercise is going to yield results so I wouldn't pay for this product.
I've participated in several infomercials over the years and most products
in infomercials aren't providing the results you see. The participants are
trained (cardio, weights whatever it takes in addition to the product being
used) and put on nutrition plans to lose weight in a short amount of time
usually 1 to 3 months.
Asta Mbacke: I think YOU are the idiot. This is about women finding a non traditional
feminine work out. Period. And the fact that you attack this woman and then
refer people to YOUR videos should speak volumes to the thinking person.
this just might work for some women who do not feel comfortable in a gym.
gigiontube: In the infomercial, all they are talking about is $14.95 for a month to try
and everything else for free. I called to see how much this really cost and
finally, after insisting, I found out that... if I want to keep the bar I
will be charge $39.95 for 10 months. So... YES... this is NOT the way to
advertise by misleading people. The infomercial does not disclose the total
price and that is wrong !
TheSUPERVANQUISH: i kinda agree that Fluidity shouldnt cost as much as it is. I am certain it
almost does what it claims, the afterburn effect. It is using the same
principle as swimming, which both use upper, lower and core muscles.
michael phelps burns 6,000 a day because of swimming. so if you can do an
exercise the works out the entire body in one session then that would be
most effective at burning calories. and daily, bootcamp you exercise daily
and dont take rest days.
Denise Johnson: Try it you'll love it! I saved for months to get this bar after injuring my
hip and back so I can no longer run; it has given me my body back without
any strain on my hip, back and knees! I am 56 and people think I am 25 or
30 and cannot believe I don't lift weights or do hardcore cardio! Awesome!
Nancy Ann Salmon: YOUR WRONG!!! ITs a Great Workout!!! And you feel it working every muscle
in your body!!!!
samantha davis: Clearly he has not tried this himself, or taken any bar classes. Otherwise
he'd know that the "isolated pulses" are working more than just that one
body part moving...it's a full body constant workout no matter what part is
pulsing. I would say unless you've tried it you can't judge what she's
saying as dishonest, rather you being naive. Also, everyone knows that
"speed" weight loss is never a healthy thing. Maybe your marketing needs a
Chris Wells: How ignorant....
oolala53: Actually, I just saw a promotion for this on a shopping channel and she
definitely gave a lot of attention to the few who made changes in 12 weeks.
I call that a quick-fix approach. Ironically, the fine print admitted that
these were extraordinary claims; results came from diet and exercise, not
necessarily from the workout. This doesn't mean there wouldn't be value in
using the device and program. It's just that it's not that superior to
anything else, and certainly not for the money.
Harmonlisa: My wife and 2 of her friends strength train. Their work outs put mine to
shame but they will never become bulky. Neither will you.
MGVP: As someone with knowledge on human anatomy what he says about isolation
movements and yoga and Pilates comments made on the infomercial, is
accurate . Anecdotal evidence is never scientifically valid. Infomercials
have so much inaccurate information because they try to be attractive to
the least common denominator. Which isn't bad. We need to sell to the
masses. But it does make experts cringe to hear inaccurate info. And no I
don't think he is selling his products either. Peace.
atruekiss: Apparently YOU'VE NEVER taken ballet? 19 years of it...and 30 years later,
still doing a mixture of yoga/pilates with ballet. You really have NO idea
what you're talking about! And you're little laugh about ballet "exercises"
being hard...again, YOU REALLY HAVE NO IDEA. None. And it's kinda sad that
you felt the urge to make this video. :/
Mamiz2angelz: I've read these comments and people are hilarious. Because you read the
title your focus was already on the fact that you thought he was downing
everything. Ballet is and always will be a total body workout and I believe
fluidity is a wonderful concept as he said but the facts used to market the
product were not factual at all. Also I would much rather build and attach
a bar to my wall and then purchase the dvd's off a less pricey website then
to spend the absurd amount they are asking.
Sunny11Luv: Also just like Weight Watchers, The Slim Fast plans, P90X, Insanity,
Hip-Hop Abs etc, etc, etc...testimonials/anecdotal evidence can only get
you so far. These people COULD HAVE been paid to say they lost 50 pounds
after having a baby, or lost 5 inches around their waist using Fluidity.
Doesn't mean these people actually did it using the program. All he's
saying is, be well-informed about what you're watching, and don't believe
that kind of evidence all the time. ROAR!!
SPEEDWeightLoss: Gay men hate women? On what planet?
shakticharel: Yoga works the whole body, if she said that, she really doesnt know what
she is talking about !
blewis9505: Hi! Can't find your website. Tried twice. Wound up somewhere it says "This
domain is for sale." BTW: Thanks so much for your Fluidity review. Just saw
infomercial for "A trial" @ $14.95 and was skeptical about price and
effectiveness. Appreciate the OP's comments as well. Thanks all.
TheSUPERVANQUISH: this is day 5 of my total gym swimmer routine, started last sunday, most
fitness experts say you gain weight when starting a routine, but ive lost 4
pounds in 5 days. 0.8 pounds per day. i know my metab is high because when
i do fall asleep, i am knocked out in a deep sleep for 8 - 10 hours. which
before this routine id get poor sleep and wake up off and on during the
night. things like drinking room temp water, lemon juice before meals,
tomatoes, spinach are a must. cold water shocks ur body
Mssharondaful: I was going to buy one today but after watching this and checking the
website out Im not going to now. It cost $414.00. Not worth it.
Bridgette Cherie: I think people are stupid to trust an ad rather than a professional.
RedManGinger: Wow Tom it seems like you're speaking to a brick biased walls lol
WhyNotNow: Sometimes, what works for one person doesn't work for another. But no
exercise routine or equipment will work if you don't use it, and you don't
control your diet. I tried jogging, running, sprinting, interval running,
but I liked Insanity the best. That alone was not enough. I had to eat
balanced meals, and control my calorie intake. 1. Be your own person and
find the best workout or product for you. 2. You don't have to look a
certain way to be fit.
SPEEDWeightLoss: @Tomwfl33 It is an absolute fact that yoga does not work only the front of
the body. It is an absolute fact that the fluidity workout uses isolation
movements. My use of the product would not change these facts. I have no
problem with someone promoting their product by saying it's fun, efficient,
or effective, but telling lies about other forms of exercise to make
fluidity seem better is just plain wrong.
SPEEDWeightLoss: @susaundboots thank you. I'm afraid many people will continue to believe
yoga, which I recommend often, only works the front of thebody, LOL. I
laugh because if I didn't, I would cry. Let us know what you think of the
bar after a while of using it!
NW4Mattie: Thanks for your knowledge and honesty... I'll check out your site as well
(I'll take all the training/education I can get when it comes to health).
As the famous Dr. OZ often say's, "Just Move". I completely understand the
fact that most Infomercials exaggerate the benefits... but I am for
anything that gets people doing something for themselves. I am considering
the purchase of the Fluidity bar myself but still Appreciate every word
you've shared with us. Thanks!!!
SPEEDWeightLoss: @xcenntricbeing Thanks for your comments. I have a Masters in Exercise
Science with a focus in Rehab. In this video I address the statements made
by Ms. Austin, the bar's promoter. She misspeaks on basics of human
physiology, either purposely or not, to help sell her product. It is this I
take issue with. As I mention at the end of the video, if you feel the
fluidity bar is helpful or will help keep you motivated, go ahead and use
