Who hasn’t heard of the Bodyboss Method?
Anybody who has a Facebook or Instagram account would have seen either ads for this fitness program or read reviews posted by their friends and online influencers. But, despite its popularity, the Bodyboss Method is receiving a ton of negative reviews. Let’s find out why.
It is meant to be a short workout
The Bodyboss Method’s target audience is women who are too busy with their lives to fit in exercise. It promises to let you achieve the best body through 3 days of short exercise sessions per week. It is basically equipment free and can be done anywhere. It is also said to be doable even if you are not in the best of shape. This is why it comes with a four-week pre-training module. This module is designed to get the boy ready for the actual workout routine. Most people fixate on the 24-minute promise. The program is 24 minutes of active workout. You still have to do the warm-up and cool down part. Including the rest time between circuits, the entire workout for active days will take you about 50 minutes to finish.
It is meant for people of all fitness levels
Even if the program comes with a pre-training routine, the actual workout can be a little difficult. Even some fitness experts who posted their review of the BBM found the workout to be hard on the knees and other joints. If these athletes were left sore after one day of following the BBM program, how much more will it be painful for those who are not in good shape? The regimen involves a lot of jumping so if you have a problem with your joints, this is going to hurt you. The program escalates even more drastically by week 7. So, if you found the first six weeks hard, you will find the coming weeks even tougher to finish. The reps can go as high as 50. This is why a lot of Bodyboss reviews claim that the users quit after a few weeks. The workout has gotten too hard for them. But, isn’t that what a workout program should do? Push you to your limit so your body can develop endurance and strength? Plus, there are modifications that you can do so that you don’t hurt yourself too much as you do the exercises.
It is a little pricey for a fitness program
When you buy the BBM program, you are given two options: get the online edition for $49.50 or buy the print version for $65.90. This can be viewed as very costly especially since there are so many free online exercise programs available nowadays. By the way, the online version comes with animated instructions so you can easily see how to perform certain exercises. This is a plus that the printed form doesn’t offer.
Is it worth the investment?
BBM is meant to improve a person’s overall fitness. The focus should not be on the scale. This is why a lot of people seemed unhappy with the program. They did not lose as many pounds as they hoped to. But if you look at body fat lost and inches lost, you will see that many users did get leaner and more toned. Plus, they can do the challenges in a shorter period. This speaks a lot about how much stronger they have gotten. So, yes, the program has gotten a lot of negative reviews but if you look at their results, you will see that the BBM has actually been effective on them.
