Review of Workout and Dieting Products


Have you ever found yourself sitting on your couch at midnight, eating a pint of ice cream, while watching skinny people prance around in leotards, promising that you can too lose 20 pounds in 20 days for the special price of $29.99? 

Yes, infomercials, the promise of flat stomachs and smaller jeans, but do these products really work?  I must say I have a sore spot for infomercials and advertisements that give me the illusion of becoming fit and slim again; so I have bought, tired, and reviewed the following items and diets:

1.      Mari Winsor Pilates;

2.      Yoga Booty Ballet;

3.      The Firm Total Body TransFIRMation System;

4.      The Jack La Lanne Power Juicer Classic;

5.      Acai Berry Juice;

6.      Atkins; and

7.      Weight Watchers.

Read the articles below for my personal experience with each item listed above.

Review of the Firm Total Body TransFIRMation System


I bought this system myself for about $70.00, with shipping.  I thought it was a little overpriced, and was upset when I found it in stores several months later for about $30.00.  I originally bought this system because it comes with 2 sets of weights, so my boyfriend and I could workout together. I think if you can easily grasp aerobic moves and have a lot of energy, this system is right for you.  I, however, do not grasp aerobic moves easily, and was literally running around in complete confusion trying to do these moves. I was completely exhausted and couldn’t wait for the DVD to be over.  I believe the DVD in the collection that left me wishing for a refund, was called Cardio Party and possibly Cardio Overdrive (I tried to erase the painful episodes from my memory). 

There is however, a weight lifting DVD called Hi-Def Sculpt that I was able to follow along with.  I really liked this DVD and how it provides toning for my arms and chest, but the aerobics/cardio DVDs are too fast and complicated for me to grasp.  I would save your money, buy a set of 5 pound weights and do the Yoga Booty Ballet DVDs instead, or I would just purchase the Hi-Def Sculpt DVD.
