    Fluidity Bar

    Was reading about the fluidity bar on about.com and was reviewing the site Fluidity: Fitness Evolved and was wondering if anyone here has tried it or knows someone that has tried it.

    By reading the information here it seems logical that it should work. I ended up ordering it but was just wondering if anyone had any experience with this

    i caught it on an infomercial the other night when i couldn't sleep... and honestly - i've been suckered in by too many infomercials that I dismiss them all out of hand... I don't think anything is the magic bullet anymore... and results are never typical

    I'm not sure there's anything you couldn't do with it that you couldn't do with a piece of furniture... and as has been pointed out a bunch - toning is a result of fat loss.. .so proper diet is still mandatory...

    but - if it motivates you to do something - well enjoy it

    huh, I saw an infomercial about that...seems neat and if you can motivate yourself to use it constantly with proper nutrition it probably works just as well as any workout....I'm curious to see how well you like it Keep me updated and good luck!!!

    Cost of a well-rounded, full body, complex muscle weight training program (squat, deadlift, bench press, military press, pullup, one arm row): $0.00

    Cost of Fluidity Bar: $299.95

    Results: same

    But if it will get you to stay on the path of good food and exercise, go for it.

    Wow, so the manufacturer's are now giving away squat racks, freeweights, benches, bars, pull-up bars and dumbbells now? Or at least giving away gym memberships so you can use the gym's equipment?

    Don't get me wrong, I think $300 for that bar is the dumbest thing I've seen in awhile, but, I think you ought to check your math. Being able to do the things you mentioned typically is not free unless you can mooch somehow. Just for squats alone you're looking at a minimum of a few hundred bucks plus storage space with a strong floor for the equipment, or else pay at least $35 a month for a gym membership. I built my own squat cage with scrap material plus about $60 for new material but the weights were another $150 so I've got over $200 just in my squat setup not counting my storage area and that's crazy cheap. Most decent home based squat cages are $300 or more, plus tax and/or shipping, plus a bar and weights. $500 or more is not uncommon, and that's not considering the other things you mentioned.


    But, as for the original question of the bar... what the hell people? $300? Go to Lowe's and buy your own bar and mounting hardware and bolt it to the wall like in that dance studio in that video. It'll be much more stable and TONS cheaper. That's crazy. Actually it looks like it's $200 on the site... but still, just bolt a bar to your wall. Just tell the guy at Lowe's you need to build a really short hand rail.

    Magic bullet sounds like a good name for a vibrator.
