Does Rockin’ Body Really Work?


Does Rockin' Body work?Rockin’ Body has been around since 2008 and has stood the test of time as one of the better aerobic programs on the market. But you don’t want to buy something and follow it only to have it not work out for you, so we looked at what this includes, evaluated the consumer response, and came to our conclusion of whether or not it works.

Overview
This was the second in a line of successful workout programs and followed Hip Hop Abs as another hit from Shaun Thomas. It’s part of the BeachBody line-up, and they’re known for putting together workout systems that hit a specific target market. In this case they seem to be trying to bring you a fun way to dance and get in shape and this would appeal to those that don’t like the conventional boring methods of aerobics or cardio work, like running on the treadmill or sitting on a stationary bike for 40 minutes.

The Claim
They say you can burn up to 1500 calories a day with Rockin’ Body. That may seem excessive, especially if you couple this with proper eating where you’re only taking in that many calories. Of course this is probably an extreme example and under normal use you’d probably burn far less than that, which would still be very impressive, and would get you on track to any fitness goal you may have.

The Host
Shaun T is the host of Rockin’ Body. You might remember him from such workout DVDs as Insanity, Asylum, and . The guy is fit, no doubt about that. If you’ve seen some promo videos and like his style, you’ll probably be able to learn the right technique from him and get a better body. No doubt he keeps his body in shape with hours of training and the right diet, so it’s best to keep reasonable expectations and just try for the best body you can get.

The Cost
The total cost of the package is $28 which includes shipping. It has 7 workouts on 2 DVDs and also comes with an eating guide, a support community, and a guide to getting started. You also get 4 bonuses, which when put all together makes quite a package. Compared to some of the other exercise programs on the market this is reasonably priced, especially when you consider all you’re getting. They say the overall value is $400 which we’re a little skeptical of, but why split hairs, it seems like a really good value regardless of the MSRP.

The Commitment
With this system they are not saying that you have to do it for 60 or 90 days, it seems to be more of a DVD that you could plug in whenever you get the notion and incorporate into your long-term fitness goals. It’s all about keeping the body guessing, and keeping your mind interested in working out and staying fit. If you do anything long enough you’ll get bored with it and find shortcuts. So the best way to stay committed to this is to incorporate it into your overall fitness goals as a bona fide cardio and aerobic workout you can use on rainy days, or at the core of your fitness program.

Evaluation
With Rockin’ Body they’ve supplied you with what you need for success. Many workouts just come with a DVD and you’re expected to come up with your own plan. With this they not only supply you with enough workouts to keep yourself interested, but they also make suggestions about how to get started. Overcoming inertia is one of the hardest things to do, so if this helps you get moving then the rest comes more naturally. Once you start using it you might find that other tasks throughout the day seem less bothersome, as you have more energy and are already in the habit of moving around more.

The eating guide is labeled Never Diet Again, and it takes the approach of making food choices that don’t seem like you’re depriving yourself so that your body doesn’t reject your efforts and you don’t go sliding back to the weight you once were. One other nice feature of this program is that you don’t have to worry about using any special equipment, as most of the moves are dance based you just have to find a spot in your house that can accommodate the different motions.

Final Rockin’ Body Review

As long as you don’t jump into this too fast and go at your own pace there’s no reason why Rockin’ Body wouldn’t work for most individuals. It’s not quite as intense as some of the other products that BeachBody is known for, which makes it a great choice for those that just want to have fun with this so they stick with it for the long term. If you’re going for the extreme body makeover 90 day challenge type of workout, you might want to consider going with P90X, but this can also provide a good gateway to a bigger challenge like that if you’re not quite up to speed fitness wise.

Our Recommendation
From our firsthand research we haven’t found anything wrong with the BeachBody company and the way they do business. We’ve tried their workout programs before and were impressed with the production values, and the effectiveness of the trainers to teach through a DVD. We also tried their Shakeology shakes and were impressed with the level of quality they put into them. While their products might be on the pricey side, the saying you get what you pay for applies here. Since the Rockin’ package is at a reasonable price point it’s a good entry product into the world of BeachBody.

As long as I enjoy something, once I commit myself I always see things through. I like rockin body and I think it’s going to be fun. If there’s anyone who could actually burn 1500 calories per day is me and I think I can do that consistently if it’s really true that it can be done with it. I need to lose 30 pounds and that’s my ultimate goal. Maybe with rockin body I can help me reach my goal in 3 months or less.

I have knee problems I twisted it snow skiing so therefore not able to jog any more. If I don’t have to do leg weights could I do this workout. Is it all dancing only?

I got Rockin body, two weeks ago and I have been sticking with it. It makes you sore it makes you sweat but its a blast. I hated the treadmill but now that I have rockin body I actually look forward to dancing off the inches. It makes you feel good about yourself, If you stay with it all the way you will get results I have already lost weight. I do suggest this. :) If your worried about it being to hard or to fast there is sue who goes at a slower pace but still gets a work out packed In.

I plan on purchasing rockin body to help me get back in shape. I just had surg 2 weeks ago and have lost 6lbs so far I needed to find a god cardio work out that I could do to lose weight this looks like it may do the trick. I have a herniated disk in lower back & bad ankles which makes it hard to do something like insanity work out or others like it but this looks like it will work for me to burn calories and keep the weight off not to mention Shaun T is easy on the eyes and will keep me motivated lol. I need to take off 75lbs but will set goals of 20lbs each to make it easier on myself…wish me luck;-).

I have done Rockin’ Body now for three weeks and into my last week I have lost a total of 5lbs and around 8 inches on my entire body. I really enjoy and plan on doing it again after I go onto Hip Hop Abs. But I am satisfied. A great diet is important an don’t expect so much when doing it. You will see results some at different times others sooner. All in all I love it and Shaun T is a great motivator. Just stick to it and have fun!!!

I just ordered the rocking body DVD but it was a workout itself. They try to up sell you with additional deals and specials plus a lifetime replacement package so that if your DVDs ever become damaged they’ll replace them free of charge. The call to order took about 20 minutes to complete. I almost to them to forget it. Then they tell you your shipment will arrive between certain dates and don’t bother calling before then.

This is my third DAY with Rockin Body. I’ve seen the videos and all those people that said they lost 30 pounds. Remember that in the package they send you, they invite you to try the Shakeology. I am assuming these people lost 30 pound because they followed the Shakeology. I am not following the Shakeology, I just try to eat better. I am a beginner and I have enjoyed SO much this program. I sweat A LOT!!!! like really.. A LOT!! Like NEVER!!! let’s see what happens.. ;)
