About VFX Body
VFX Body is a step-by-step, one-stop weight loss system designed specifically for women that’s claimed to help you lose weight, get in shape, and to achieve a fit, toned, and shapely feminine body, safely and naturally.
At the core of the VFX Body program is something called “metabolic override,” which is claimed to combine unique diet and exercise strategies that optimize your metabolism based on lifestyle, preferences, and demands, and that help you naturally lose weight. Because of this, VFX Body claims to help you achieve healthy weight loss that can be maintained over the long term.
Overall, VFX Body is claimed to consist of 4 different phases:
- Custom nutritional software that recommends weekly and daily caloric intake based on your needs. This also includes macro nutrient breakdowns based on your food preferences and weight loss goals.
- A nutrition manual that includes custom meal plans based on your taste preferences and budget, in addition to “advanced education” that’s designed to meet your nutritional recommendations.
- 143 premium video coaching/workout lessons designed to teach you proper form, as well as how and when to execute each unique exercise. As a whole, the workout program is claimed to be designed to provide whole body conditioning, and to provide a muscle toning effect. Each workout is claimed to be easy to follow and can be performed in the comfort of your own home (more about this in a moment).
- A customer community named “Immersion,” which is claimed to bring thousands of like-minded women together who are either starting the VFX Body program, or who have already completed it. Here, you can get answers your questions and share support.
According to the company, VFX Body works for women from all walks of life and any for fitness level, from beginner to advanced.
Now that Spring has sprung, you might be especially motivated to get back into shape after the long, cold winter. But can you expect VFX Body to provide results? Consider the following:
What is “Metabolic Override?”
While no additional information is provided about their unique “metabolic override” on the VFX Body website, it simply appears to reference the changes in your metabolism from exercising and eating a calorie restricted diet.
With this said, “metabolic override” appears to be marketing spin that’s applied to the well-known benefits of eating properly and getting adequate exercise. Nothing more.
How Does VFX Body’s Nutritional Software Work?
Although there isn’t a detailed demonstration provided on the VFX Body website, it appears the included nutritional software works by displaying your recommended daily caloric intake, target weight, and more, simply by entering your height, weight, age, waist and shoulder measurements, and daily time spent exercising.
Given this information, the caloric intake feedback seems like it would be extremely useful, and the maximum possible weight loss and water weight fluctuation information could help keep you motivated and help you better understand what’s going on with your body.
On the other hand, ideal waist size and shoulder circumference seem a little less necessary (after all, we’re all built differently, right?). Speaking of different builds, if you take a look at the image below, it shows an “ideal weight” for this individual between 114lbs and 139lbs (a difference of 25 pounds), which is a massive difference.
Considering this, it seems like the VFX Body software would be ideal for gauging how many calories you should eat per day, as well as for maintaining motivation, although the additional information it provides might not provide as much value.
What Types of Exercises Are Included in VFX Body?
Like with the nutritional software, we’re only given short glimpses of some of the exercises included in the VFX Body program, although many appear to combine resistance training (e.g. using weights) and cardio.
Interestingly, nearly all of the exercises shown on VFX Body’s commercial included the use of additional equipment, such as barbells and free weights. In fact, one exercise was shown using a rowing machine converted to provide leg exercises, which is a piece of equipment you’ll only find at a gym.
So while you won’t need “pills, powders, or potions,” you’ll almost certainly need additional equipment such as barbells and/or free weights, which can greatly increase the overall expense.
Who is Roberta Saum?
The video on the VFX Body website is narrated by Roberta Saum, who claims to be a former VFX Body success story and now a personal fitness coach inside the VFX community.
However, while Roberta’s physical transformation after the age of 50 is nothing short of amazing, we have to wonder if this is actually the case. Why? Because the VFX Body website has only been registered since October 2014, long after Roberta’s transformation.
In fact, Roberta became a fitness expert and created her own program called Venus Index long before VFX Body made its way to the marketplace. As such, it seems odd that Roberta would provide insight and advice to customers of a product that’s in direct competition with hers.
Because of this, it’s important to keep in mind that Roberta Saum did not achieve her current level of physical fitness using the VFX Body program.
Are Women Achieving Their Ideal Bodies with VFX Body?
Although the VFX Body system appears to have been available for several months, there were very few online customer reviews at the time of our research. In fact, when searching for “VFX Body” reviews, the only results that appeared were on a SparkPeople.com forum thread, where no one had heard of the program.
However, one user named ARCHIMEDESII really put things into perspective by stating:
It's a hard lesson to learn, but what really takes the weight off and keeps it off is a healthy diet and portion control. You don't have to do any gimic (sic) diet in order to lose weight. But you really do have to be mindful of your portion sizes. As you learned from your previous post, those little jellies add up fast.
From a company perspective, VFX Body is produced by Strengthworks International Publishing Inc, a health and fitness publishing company based out of St. Michael, Barbados that claims to develop products using “a team of expert trainers, nutritionists and fitness coaches” that create “highly effective and enjoyable programs.” As an international company, Strengthworks is not listed with the Better Business Bureau.
VFX Body Pricing & Refund Policy
VFX Body is priced at a one-time payment of $47, and is available for immediate download after your payment has been processed.
In addition to the digital videos and reading material, you’ll also gain access to Immersion, VFX Body’s online community where you can “receive real time advice and support from other VFX customers and coaches.”
Like all products sold through Clickbank, VFX Body comes with a 60-day refund policy. In order to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at (844) 687-3438 or (844) 839-3438.
Can VFX Body Help You Achieve a Lean, Sexy, Feminine Body?
Chopping to the Point: While it’s positive that VFX Body doesn’t claim to be some kind of “magic” weight loss program, and specifically notes that you’ll have to follow the diet and exercise regimen closely in order to experience results, there’s not really much else we know about the program that could separate it from the competition.
In essence, VFX Body claims to work using a restricted calorie diet and regular exercise to help you lose weight, which is what any other weight loss program will provide. On top of this, some of VFX Body’s unique tools (such as the nutrition software) don’t appear to be especially useful.
Because of this, you’ll want to speak with your physician about the best types of diets and exercise based on your specific level of health, and then explore your options from there.

It doesn't work. Waste of time. Don't even bother buying it.
