So a while ago, I wrote a post about joining Deeptone to go with some of my other posts about Deeptone and Slim4Life. Apparently, though, I forgot to save this particlar post because it's just not there, so I thought I'd revisit the subject. It's not hard for me to forget to save any given post, because in order to write anything, I start it, write for about 2 minutes, then have to let the dogs in or I have to answer a kid's question. Once I've left my computer, anything can happen.
Anyway, I joined Deeptone after roughly ten years of seeing the ads in the Rocky Mountain News. I typically don't believe ads. But I also remembered that a very, very long time ago, the Rocky Mountain News had sent a reporter to the Deeptone classes, and she reported that they really did work. A little while after, I checked into Deeptone, but all I got when I called the number that they provide was something about a mandatory class, and something about a video that you have to buy. After that, I waited a while to check into it again. Like 8 years or more. But this time I was swayed by the whole "one hour per week" claim that they make. As I was spending more and more time in the gym with not much to show for it, I thought, what the heck? It can't hurt to check into again.
In order to join Deeptone, though, you have to go to one of their orientation classes (they did away with the videos years and years ago). The orientation classes are sort of infomercials, and I'm not one to really be swayed by infomercials. They put up these people that are like, "I've been doing Deeptone for 8 years, and this is what I looked like before I started." And of course, the person talking has a really hot body, and they typically weren't too hot in their before picture.
What really swayed me, though, was talking to the other people at orientation. These people were all there because they knew somebody who had lost a lot of weight and was looking amazing at their work, or their sister-in-law did it, or I even met somebody who had done the class years earlier before her children were born, and now she had the time to go back. That seemed like a good recommendation to me.
So I gave the class a try. And you know what? It was hard! The first time I did it I couldn't walk for two days because my leg muscles were so sore. It's gotten better since then, but the whole point is that you only work out for one hour a week, so you'd better make it worthwhile. The first six weeks are spent in the beginner class, and then you jump into the regular classes, and I thought that that would be the true test as to whether this class would really work or not. If I was to believe all the hype at the infomercial orientation class, then the people in the regular classes should have people that have been going for years and years and are totally hot. And you know what? They were! I've talked to women that have been going for as many as 5 years, and I can't believe how strong they are. And they're not huge, either, like Arnold Shwarzenegger. Deeptone is supposed to build long, lean muscles, and from what I've seen, it does.
Even though I've been doing Deeptone for roughly six months now, I still have to watch what I eat, but I like that I can work out in one hour per week and get better results than I was getting on my own and in a lot more time per week.
