ActivMotion Bar’s New IGNITE 60-Day Program Balance Workout 2 Review


I am super excited about the new innovative ActivMotion Bar’s new IGNITE 60-day program. The ActivMotion Bar is a hollow body bar with rolling weights inside designed by Derek Mikulski, CSCS. The bar engages unique muscle activation and enhances the calorie burning benefits of your workouts! The 60 Day Ignite program includes 15 online workouts that blend cardio, strength, core work, and flexibility plus anti-aging balance work. Work your muscles in a whole new way with one piece of equipment and have fun while you are working out. The bars are available in multiple weights so you choose which bar is right for you. Keep reading to learn more about this fun and effective new program and stay tuned on the blog for detailed reviews of the new IGNITE workouts. 


ActivMotion IGNITE Balance 2Donna

You will only need your ActivMotion bar for this 27 minute functional balance routine. Donna offers some modification options throughout. The bar has markers showing where you should keep your hands for optimal balance.

This routine includes a warm up and concludes with a stretch. Exercises include single leg bridge series, side plank leg raises, super man using the bar for resistance, walking forward & back variations with the bar, warrior 3 bar & leg raise, lunge to dip, hinged bar swing, and static lunge with single arm overhead press. 




Using a 6 pound bar, I found this to a beginner appropriate routine. The focus is on keeping the balls in the center of the bar and has some balance work included. With a heavier bar, this could be  used as a low intensity toning workout. The workout definitely has a functional feel. I received access to this routine to review.

Today includes an intro video that prepares you for your workouts, tells you about today's goals, theme, and today's Mantra. The workouts for the day include a 20 minute fitness routine, a 20 minute yoga routine, and a 15 minute meditation routine. You won't need any equipment for these routines. Juliana works out alone in all of these routines & all are shot on location in the beautiful Exuma, Bahamas and there is even a gorgeous rainbow in the sky for the fitness routine.

Healthy eating is a lifestyle and creating a life where eating healthy is exciting and delicious. Today's mantra is I nourish my body with love and respect.

The meditation routine is appropriate for all fitness levels. The yoga routine contains some more advanced postures, and the fitness routine is a solid to high intermediate, I really felt the burn in my arms in this one and all without equipment. The yoga routines in this set double as a cool down/ stretch for the fitness routines and all the days workouts compliment each other. As always, Juliana is an excellent instructor and provides great form pointers, and has a lovely demeanor. I received access to these workouts to review.

Jody Hendrix, 2017

Jody leads this 28 min strength workout with 3 backgrounders in a gym set. You will need dumbbells and an optional pull-up bar for this routine. The workout contains a warm-up/ stretch and a cool-down/ stretch.

You will perform 3 back exercises & 3 leg exercises 2 times with 30 seconds rest between rounds and conclude with a finisher. Exercises include lat pull downs, rows, pull-ups, goblet squats, side lunges, and lunges. Your finisher is 5 rounds of 4 pull-ups & 10 squat jumps.

I rate this an advanced workout using heavy weights. Jody's pace allows for heavy poundage & using a pull-up bar I got an excellent burn in my lower body & back. I like the pace & that I could use heavy weights in this one. Straight to the point & the finisher really got my heart rate up. I received this DVD to review.

Day 6 Courage:

The workouts for the day include a 20 minute fitness routine, a 20 minute yoga routine, and a 20 minute meditation routine. You will need one 2-3 pound dumbbell for your fitness routine. Juliana works out alone in all of these routines & all are shot on location in the beautiful Exuma, Bahamas.

The yoga & meditation routines are appropriate for all fitness levels, and the fitness routine is a solid intermediate. I was still a bit sore from my last workouts, so I really felt this! I love 
Juliana as a lead and the fitness routine is one of my favorites so far. It really accomplishes a lot in only 20 minutes. The flowing lower body yoga routine is exactly what my lower body needed after todays fitness routine.  I received access to these workouts to review.
