Ok, y’all….when I got my 6 lb bar as part of a partnership between Fit Approach and ActivMotion Bar, I expected a few things…
I expected it to be challenging. After all, it was one of the workouts during the circuit at IdeaWorld that really stuck out with me as being really hard.
I expected it to be a change. I didn’t do much workout with any form of a bar and have been mostly sticking to Pound workouts since getting certified.
What I didn’t expect? Just how much I would love it! Not only is it challenging and different from many other workouts I’ve tried, but it’s FUN! There are just so many options for the type of workout you can do with it – slower, balance based movements all the way to powerful dynamic ones. And while my favorite workouts so far have been mostly dynamic, I’m pretty sure that is just because my balance sucks! Thankfully, that is something that will hopefully improve as I use it more.
Another thing I’m really enjoying about working out with the bar is that while I can do a long, intense workout, there are plenty of ways to get a really good quick workout in too! I’ve found myself pulling it out at home to do a 15-min workout on days where I can’t make it to the gym! I don’t honestly like doing at-home workouts much anymore, so the fact that I really enjoy it when I’m using my ActivMotion Bar says a lot! (I still prefer gym workouts though…then I just take my bar with me!)
All in all, I can’t get over just how much I am in love with mine. I even ended up buying two more during their holiday sale! And if you want to try one for yourself, you can! Just go to ActivMotion Bar and use the code ‘fitapproach25’ at checkout to get 25% off your purchase, good through Jan 7!
I was given my bar from ActivMotion Bar through a partnership with FitApproach for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
