Guys & gals, I have found my new favorite piece of workout equipment. It’s easy to use, easy to store, and it’s extremely effective!
So what is it?
It’s called ActivMotion Bar.
“The ActivMotion Bar is no ordinary fitness bar. It’s always moving and strengthening your core with every exercise—because it’s filled with rolling steel weights. No other fitness product comes close to creating a multisensory workout experience like this. The moment you pick it up you’ll hear the weights move inside and feel them challenging your body. Whether you’re a beginner, a trainer, a pro athlete or anything in between, it’s time to change the way you train, engage mind and muscle, experience an amazing workout and get in shape quicker than ever before. It’s time for the ActivMotion Bar” (website).
When Fit Approach offered the opportunity to try the ActivMotion bar as part of my #SweatPink ambassadorship, I had to give it a little extra thought (Disclosure: I received a free bar, plus compensation, in exchange for my honest review). I don’t generally use weights during my workouts, so I was a little hesitant. Was it going to be too heavy? Would I end up hurting myself (I can be a total klutz)? As it turns out, I LOVE the ActivMotion bar! It’s light (the one I have, at least; it comes in 6, 8, 10, 15, or 18 lbs), but definitely gives resistance. After a few reps, I start to feel the burn. The day after my first workout with the bar, my arms and core were sore! It was awesome. Along with that, it’s easy to use. It’s one simple bar- it does not require assembly or parts.
Plus, it has rolling steel weights inside! The steel weights help you to strengthen your core during your entire workout. I like the rolling steel weights because they help me to stay balanced (something that’s not-so-easy with Ménière’s Disease).
A big reason why I like using the ActivMotion bar is that I can use it in my living room, and for any type of workout. I practice yoga, so I don’t use weights often. But I found that I could incorporate it into most of my yoga poses! Then when I’m done with my workout, I can store it in my closet or corner.
I did a 30 minute workout in my living room, and my boyfriend snapped some photos (don’t judge, I’m still learning form!):
If you want to follow a routine, you can purchase DVDs. Choose between Total Body Toning, Active Aging, Training System, Foundation Builder (Level 1), Progressive Movement (Level 2), and Dynamic Performance (Level 3).
After using the ActivMotion Bar for about a month, I’m hooked! I’m seriously so excited to be incorporating the bar into various workouts. Plus my boyfriend loves it too! I made a quick video testimonial of why I love this bar:
My apologies for the vertical screen- I just got an iPhone 6 and had the hardest time holding the phone while recording!
I highly recommend the ActivMotion Bar for anyone who enjoys fitness. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, this bar will definitely help you step up your game!
