Jessica Rochac: exactly Lauren. There are different workouts for different people. I think all exercise works in keeping in shape and aiding weight loss when done regularly. Have you seen dancer's bodies? they are toned every where and have both strength and flexibility.
Brian Murphy: I am completely agreeing with him. Thank you!!
ThePhysio1234: When you bend forward at the waist you engage the abdominals quite a bit. Especially when you hold it and move the extremities. I recommend you take a barre class. During the infomercial she isn't going through all the cuing necessary to get the core contracted but when you take a class you'll see from head to toe you contract MANY more muscles than you would doing a typical gym routine with machines. My problem with it is the barre is over priced.
Gar Laa: Don't knock it , till you actually tried it.
StarrTrekn: Said by a person who has obviously never tried the Fluidity Barre Workout. Blah blah blah is all I hear.
Erin Fahey: ave you tried this work out?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Julia Lindsay: He unfortunately has no idea about dance or the true concepts of it.. Its irrelevant of her words.. a dancer works on the barr.. This cute guy is probably a gym rat has no idea about ballet.. He needs to go to ballet class and then see what he says
Sandra Montalvo: Don't be a hater!!! I hate "trainers" that think they know it all and just bash other people or products! don't be dumb... if you're going to discredit something someone said on anything, at least know exactly what is said and have a good solid reason and explanation on why you disagree!
Sindy Salcedo: Fluidity is an intense workout, and you admitted in your video you've never tried it. "I'm sure ballet workouts are really hard..." The simplest explanation is the average person moves 200muscles in an hour, with fluidity you move 400 muscles. Also my posture vastly improved too!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 open.
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.
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.
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.
Sarina Amor: Matt…. try a dance class and then you'd understand what she means by dormant muscles. If anyone has any further questions I suggest you look into a ballet class, yes, enroll into an adult dance class in your area.
