As a personal trainer and figure competitor, I’m always looking for different and exciting ways to reach my goals—whether they’re the ones I’ve set for myself, or the ones I’m helping clients to achieve. Recently, I’ve discovered a product that piqued my interest—The Ultimate Body Applicator. There’s a lot of talk about it going around right now, so I wanted to be sure and provide my professional opinion here for anyone who might be wondering what all the buzz is about.
The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that’s applied to the body, infusing the skin with a powerful, botanical-based formula that delivers maximum tightening, toning and firming results wherever it’s placed. Unlike other wraps (which cause you to lose inches through water loss), this wrap has a creamy layer that’s placed directly on the skin to give you a smoother, more youthful looking physique AND reduce the appearance of cellulite (you read that correctly, SEE YOU LATER, CELLULITE!).
It takes as little as 45 minutes to see results, and it’s recommended that you use a new wrap every 72 hours (the wrap works progressively, giving you continual results for 72 hours after use). The wraps are 13” x 21” and are conveniently shaped for application to whatever part of the body you want to improve (legs, arms, abdominal region, and the neck and chin area).
While this product is a nice touch to a well-rounded fitness regimen, I don’t recommend that anyone rely on the Ultimate Body Applicator as THE SOLE go-to for body improvement. This isn’t a “quick fix” for the person who isn’t willing to get off the couch, but it’s a nice perk for the person who needs that extra bit of motivation or confidence to keep up the good work. With its near-immediate, visual results, it’s hard to ignore the euphoria that comes with a product that makes us look as good as we feel after a workout—but that good workout should still be a staple in your healthy lifestyle.
Just like with exercise, you NEED to be thinking of water consumption while using the wraps. Staying hydrated is key to the detoxification process the body experiences as the wrap goes to work. Aim for drinking up to half of your body weight (in pounds) in fluid ounces. Doing so will enable you to enjoy maximum results!
I’m just a humble fitness professional here in Central New York, but I’m not alone in enjoying the benefits of this product. Melanie Griffith, Seth Green, Rumor Willis, Leeza Gibbons, Olivia Wilde and Kim Cattrall have all promoted The Ultimate Body Applicator. If it’s good enough for the red carpet, it’s good enough for me!
