Biotrainer Weight Loss System Overview
The Biotrainer Weight Loss System works as a motivation tool to help the user achieve the desired results.
Looking a lot like a pedometer (for measuring steps taken) the Biotrainer is a device that has the ability to calculate calories burned through both exercise and regular, everyday activities. The official Biotrainer website is very attractive and user-friendly, with comprehensive information plus a short video presentation featuring fitness guru, Denise Austin. According to the site, the Biotrainer uses patented technology that was developed at a number of medical institutions and provides a lengthy ‘clinical studies’ page as evidence. Unfortunately, the information is so technical it is unlikely that the reader will actually take the time to read it thoroughly.
The website features a handful of testimonials that are included in the aforementioned video clip, and that are all certified by the infomercial board. The individuals in the testimonials state how they not only lost weight but also were able to alter their body shape through inches lost. The amount of weight loss is well within the professional recommendations (usually between 1-2lbs per week). The FAQ section is particularly good, covering all aspects of the Biotrainer product, how it works, ordering, refunds and the available membership programs.
Biotrainer Weight Loss System – Product Description
The Biotrainer is a ‘clip-on’ device to be worn throughout the day. The user simply programs in their current weight and the Biotrainer monitors every movement and activity, calculating the number of calories burned. It registers a combination of horizontal and vertical movements, giving it an extremely accurate reading. Even small movements are taken into account so that the wearer knows not only how many calories they have burned in a day, but giving them a challenge in the form of a number to beat. Research has shown that being aware of this information is a great motivator for many people, particularly when the only competition is themselves!
In addition to the Biotrainer, the company has two membership programs, both offered for a free trial with every order. The monitoring program allows the individual to track their progress by entering data from the Biotrainer and converting it into information such as how much weight has been lost or gained. The nutritional program helps the individual plan meals and keep a food journal, another proven tool for successful weight loss.
The price for the Biotrainer if ordered from the website is $49.95 and, if ordered separately, the cost for each program is $9.95 per month.

Biotrainer Weight Loss System – The Bottom Line
Whilst it certainly wouldn’t hurt to use the Biotrainer when attempting to lose weight, it would certainly need to be combined with a sensible weight loss program in order to be effective. It is an interesting tool to have however, and, if anything, would be fun to see exactly how many calories were burned during the day and try to increase the amount daily.
