Rated 5 out of 5 by scotsman It certainly works, I'm VERY impressed!
I purchased my bodyblade 2 months ago when it was last on air. I thought about it for well over a year before I took the plunge.
I am in my very late 70s (the next big 0 is imminent), I have suffered Oestoarthritis, head to foot, most of my life but don't let that stop me. I did have to give up my exercise class for that reason. In it's place I take a brisk walk for 1 hour every day (except Sunday) to keep me supple. My age does not come into it, I use my common sense and do as much as I like when my body permits!
I'm really glad I purchased the bodyblade, it's given me the exercise I've been missing out on. I do 5 of the exercises that are right for ME. I struggled for 2 days trying to get the hang of the wobble, after it happened, there was no stopping me (being an ex dancer, I've got natural rythum and I think that helped to get the wobble going. FAB u LUS!
Now for the best part - like a lot of others, I too have 'bingowings' but more like loose skin, they weren't ugly. Now, after about 7 weeks of usage there is a noticeable change in my arms (I don't have definition yet) but I can feel the muscle in my upper arms a little more toned so that's an improvement. I use it several times a day, as often or little as I feel like. Best bit of all, I feel my clothing fits a lot better and I've lost a few ounces too.
I'd like to make one point, I sometimes find that holding the blade a little difficult because both of my thumbs have collapsed into the palm of my hand, however, I soon learned that only a feather light touch is required to hold it - no need for grabbing, sorted!
Thank you BodyBlade, a great piece of equipment, easy to store and NO need for assembly. 10 Stars.

Just what I was looking for. Exercise I can manage - not too strenuous, but not too light either. Time I can manage and storage I can manage. I am so pleased. Thank you.

I was so impatient for this to arrive, I couldn't wait to try it out.
Very practical, easy to store and a quick workout if that's what you want. You can go longer than the six minutes or ten minutes if you want to push yourself further.
It did take me a while to get the hang of it, but now I have it's great.
Gets your heart going and you can really feel you are working out, but the recovery time is quick.
Calories are burned in the muscle, right!

Rated 4 out of 5 by dumpygrumpy Not for me.
I really liked this piece of excersise equipment and managed to do all but one of the Super Six, unfortunatley I have arthritus in both my hands and realised that I was causing my self considerable pain. I will have to return this item, but would happily recomend it to anyone who does not have the same complaint as me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 925fan Simply amazing for post pregnancy!!
I bought this whilst I was pregnant to help me shape up once my baby was born!
I waited a month before starting to use this as I knew I had gained weight, not only on my stomach but on my arms and hips. This is brilliant. doesn't put strain on my stomach muscles and really makes a difference on my arms.
Because you can build up the use and use the dvd or not, I can build up to the minute workouts which don't sound like much but this is great when also looking after a baby. I can steal a few minutes each day to work out.
Trying to work your arms for 60 seconds is quite a challenge if you are a bit out of shape like I am right now.
This is a quiet bit of kit, doesn't take up space, is brilliant if you don't have lots of time to spare. Another plus for this is that you can do your nails and use this with no smudges!!
I cannot recommend this enough and I am looking forward to doing longer work outs as I get fitter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GinFizz Just the best!
This was a Christmas present. I started using it on Christmas Day last year and today is 26 May 2016. It took a few days to get to grips with body blade but it is so worth it! I use it on average four times a week - sometimes for 6 minutes and sometimes for 15 minutes. I have gone from a generous size 14 to a comfortable size 12 in 5 months. 11/2 stone lighter. I have just bought two sleeveless tops for summer because I like my arms! Please try it? You won't regret it! Thank you Bruce!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gainsie Not for me sadly
This was recommended by a friend, who like me, suffers from a bad back. I was so excited about using this but unfortunately I am not one of those people who can rub their tum whilst tapping the top of their head. Apart from holding the bar in front of me and moving it, I could not get it to work in any other position. It was like I had no co-ordination. So it was a complete waste of time and I am returning it.
