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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.

What is the music like for this?
I wanted to work out but was bored by the usual Beach Body workouts I normally do and it’s too cold to run. I tried two of Sean’s workouts and had a blast! I upped my moves to get a better workout and more cardio, but he’s awfully fun and inspiring! It didn’t feel like a workout and I feel great! Just what I needed!
I have scoliosis really bad. Would this be good for me or would it do more damage
I disagree that this workout will hurt your knees. I have other dance workouts that kill my knees, but this one so far has not done that. I just received the Rockin Body tape and have only done two of the workouts, but the good thing about Beachbody is there is always one person showing a lower impact version. You don’t have to jump into the air to burn the calories, and the great thing about the tapes, is if you can’t do a certain move, just do what works for you. I pretty much just altered the moves that I just couldn’t get down and did what I already know.
I started this a couple weeks ago.I love rockin body. your working out and dancing at the same time..so fun I do this two to three times a day, I can feel the weight coming off.
I love this program. I have never been one to stick with a workout program. The workouts are easy to follow and the burn feels so good! I weigh over 300 lbs currently and if I can do it, anyone can! On the days with two workouts, I do one at about 5a and the other in the evening. There is no better way to start or end your day!
OK, now I’m a total skeptic. But I’m approaching 52 this up coming February. My busy work schedule has limited my me time for exercising. Well, I haven’t seem to fit the time in to go join a gym. This sounds much more fun, and its time for me to work on cardio along with everything else.
Once I receive the DVD and start the regime, I’ll post my opinion.
Wish me luck!
IT WORKS! You have to commit…a lot of fun to dance and groove with Shaun T!!! I find that some people are just lazy and do it for a few sessions and then quit…and those people are not disciplined …and you have to be disciplined to be fit and stay healthy doesn’t happen in a surgeons office with their plastic surgery for the extreme pathetic lazy people! It is worth it let me tell you a small investment for your heart to be happy SOOOO worth it! I had 6 TIAs (mini strokes) in 2013 followed by a stroke April 18, 2013 at the age of 41….I needed to take control of my life I quit smoking, started off slowly in the exercise world and have now moved on to SHAUN T’s Rockin Body and I am lovin it and he has a modifier so you can watch Tonya and she is great to start with and it’s still a hell of a workout 🙂 I highly recommend this it is soooo much fun compared to the traditional boring exercise dvds and ladies watching Shaun T working out hot damn – a winning combination!!! 😉 STAY FIT & HAVE FUN 🙂
I would not do this either as I have experienced this. Although, I do not have the problem as extreme as you. Maybe you can lose weight by walking around your neighborhood or doing some exercises on the bike. I hope this helped. 🙂
I have Rockin Body *Rock it Out *Hard-Core Abs and *Booty Time.
Does the 30 day promise actually true?
Is there anyone that got any kind of injuries from using this product? Nothing is too small.
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.. 😉
Did this work for you with your back problems? thank you for any response
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.
I started the workout last week and lost 3 pounds. I feel great! Weighed 140 (5’7″) and need this to help my fibromyalgia. Love it!!
I want to order Rockin Body I want to lose 16-20 pounds. I love to dance & I now I would enjoy it. When I order it . I will keep you informed . Can’t wait
I tried out Rockin’ Body and its pretty fun as far as workouts go
I would not do this workout with knee problems. Yes you will be constantly dancing, hopping, moving. I just completed my first week of rockin body.
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!!!
Will update progress after a months time.;)
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;-).
The rockin body dvd also has great music.
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.
Hi i am 19 and i always been stuggling on my wieght i just got it today so should be here in one week or so (: i hope it works though i have JRA and I hope it dosent effect it (:
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?
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.
