It’s a new year and that means many are on the search for a new them. If you are one of these people, like I am, then you will love exploring fun ways to get your sweat on. My latest obsession for fitness is the ActivMotion Bar. Never heard of it? Well that’s ok because neither had I. At first look I thought, now how can a bar filled with weighted balls really be effective. Boy, I will tell you after my first workout my body was telling me how wrong my brain was!
The ActiveMotion Bar was created by a guy named Derek Mikulski. Derek was a very unhealthy and overweight young man tipping the scales at 260 pounds. Derek took control of his life, lost over 80 pounds and is now helping others do the same. So, out of his passion for fitness came the ActivMotion Bar. The unique internal rolling steel weights inside the bar help to engage both body and mind to enhance strength, balance and mind – muscle awareness. Like I said, I was really not sure about this until I tried it. Wow… you really have to concentrate on what you are doing. The balls roll, and you are working your whole body to keep things flowing smoothly thru your workouts.
The ActivMotion Bar offers a variety of packages for anyone looking to add this to their fitness routine. I received the 6 pound bar and 5 DVD’s. The ActivMotion Bar has huge versatility because the workout programs can be used to improve balance, core strength, flexibility, muscle tone, cardiovascular fitness and sports performance. I like that the exercises one does with this are fun and refreshing, and also effective. And I know for many who can’t get to a gym, or can’t fit a ton of exercise gear in their home this would be perfect! It is a pole, so fits anywhere in your home.
I made a video to show you some of the moves I like the most. Check it out ~
There are so many great workouts to do with the ActivMotion Bar and that makes this a perfect workout tool for pretty much anyone. This is even approved by the ACE, MASM and AFAA programs for continuing credits. If you are a fitness professional this would be a great class to offer in your area.
I am enjoying my ActivMotion bar and adding it to my weekly fitness training. I would love to know if you have tried this, or plan to try this.
