I am a sucker for infomercials. It doesn't matter what the product is- by the time the program is over I am convinced of it's value and thoroughly believe that it will change my life for the better. I realize that many of them are scams and a complete waste of money, but on the other hand I can personally vouch for a number of products. I love my "Total Gym," (even if I never actually use it). I think "Nads" is a fairly decent hair removal product. I've seem women completely transformed by Windsor Pilates. I love the "Juice Man Jr," My "BOSU" is excellent, and every now and then I still enjoy a good workout from Billy Blanks.
A few weeks ago I found myself up in the wee hours of the morning fighting a bout of unexplainable insomnia, so I turned on the television hoping to lull myself back into dreamland. Now if you have never suffered a sleepless night before you may not realize that between the hours of 1 and 5 a.m. just about every channel is selling something. It is an infomercial lovers paradise and that's where and when I first learned of this Fluidity Bar. In short, it's a free-standing ballet bar that enables one to do all sorts of great dancer-like toning exercises. And even though I will probably never have my dancer's body completely back again (thanks kids), I figure this contraption just might get me closer to my coveted college form. (If you want the full low-down on the bar you can check out their website.) My point is, I was sold and I ordered one. (Mom, this was your birthday present to me. Thank you!) After all it has a 30 day money back guarantee!
My bar arrived on my doorstep yesterday and I've tested it out. It's a really nice, solid piece of equipment-although a little larger and heavier than I had anticipated, but I like it. The workout is pretty straight forward. I enjoyed it and think it has a lot of potential for me. My problem is this: I think only one of the exercises actually requires this kind of bar. Minus that one-I could do the entire workout on a wall-mounted bar which would cost me a lot less, and would solve my problem of "Where do I put this thing?"
So now I have to decide. Should it stay or should it go? Any thoughts?
