FirstFitness Review - Do These Natural Supplements Work?
I’m here to cut through the noise and get to the bottom line on FirstFitness. There’s been a lot of talk about this program, and it’s even been featured on CNN, so let’s dive in and look at the products, customer service, research, and ingredients of FirstFitness. We’ll also take a look at some actual reviews and comments from users that have tried for themselves. Then, we’ll condense it all to give you the bottom line.
What is FirstFitness?
To start, FirstFitness is a nutrition company that offers a variety of products including those designed for fat burning, appetite suppression, meal replacement, and more. The ingredients are listed on the company’s website and include chromium, green tea, caffeine, and fucoxanthin. The supplements can be taken anywhere, and the powders are easy to mix. 
FirstFitness has been around since 1989, which is a good sign. Their products are available through individual distributors and the official website, and there are a variety of options to choose from. We like that the company has some longevity and that it includes a meal plan, but read on…
Price – “Is it Worth it?”
The first thing that stood out was the high cost of FirstFitness products. “If you want a quality product, you may have to spend a bit more,” said our Research Editor. “But, with this system, you’re paying nearly $200 per month.”
“Way too expensive for what you get, but I did like the meal plan,” said one user.
“I couldn’t afford this product if I wanted to,” said another.
On the other hand, one customer stated, “As long as I continue to see results, I don’t mind paying this much.”
Lack of Long Term Results – “A Strong Consideration”
Something else that stood out about FirstFitness was the lack of long-term results. Unfortunately, it seems pretty common to gain all the weight back after following the meal plan and taking these supplements. 
“As soon as I stopped, I quickly gained back all the weight I lost,” said one online review.
One user said, “As soon as I stopped the FirstFitness program I couldn’t get enough to eat and I gained back the 50 pounds that I had lost.” 
Some FirstFitness reviews told a different story. “I was thrilled with my initial weight-loss, but in the end I’m back to losing a pound every other week,” stated a customer.
“The weight isn’t falling off like before, but I’m still losing,” reported another. 
Our research shows that diet programs with troublesome issues (high cost, painful routines, lack of results, bad taste, etc.) are less likely to lead to sustained weight-loss. If people do often gain weight after finishing with FirstFitness, it may be difficult for dieters to reach their full potential. 
The Science – “Real Research On FirstFitness?”
The website claims that FirstFitness will help change you physically and financially, and at least one part of that is right. The high cost will leave you with a whole lot less money than when you started. Unfortunately, there’s no evidence that this product has any long term benefits to your overall physical health. In fact, most doctors agree that weight gain following a diet can take a toll on the body. Without research or studies backing their claims, we see red flags and are skeptical of the life-changing transformations that are promised.
The Bottom Line – Does FirstFitness Work?
After seeing some success stories on CNN and elsewhere we were optimistic about FirstFitness. We also liked the variety of products and the included meal plan. But, without clinical studies backing up their claims or the scientific research we look for, we were left disappointed. We’re skeptical and concerned about the MLM nature of this business, high cost, and lack of long-term success with these supplements.
If you’d like proven weight-loss without inevitable weight gain after you lose, we suggest a product with proven claims and long-term weight-loss results.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. The four-part formula is specifically designed to maximize weight-loss by burning fat and boosting metabolism. It’s available directly from the manufacturer’s website, and it’s affordable. The ingredients have been featured in clinical testing, and there are few if any, side effects reported.
As a bonus, Leptigen is currently being made available as part of a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign that the company is confident in their product.

FirstFitness: What You Should Know
FirstFitness is a multi-level marketing company that provides various lines of nutritional products, including those designed specifically for weight loss. The company website appears to be as interested in recruiting distributors as it does in actually marketing the products. FirstFitness has been in business since 1989 and is based out of Carrollton, Texas. In addition to weight loss products, the company offers formulas for herbal care, energy and fitness and personal care.
The FirstFitness weight loss line includes a number of products, including full weight loss programs of various lengths, powder mixes, weight control bars and a weight loss supplement. While it appears that you can purchase products directly through the company website, the function did not appear to be working properly when we tried to explore it for this review. We were also unable to find other online retailers selling FirstFitness products. We were also unable to find pricing information for any of the FirstFitness line.
Ingredients in FirstFitness
For the purpose of this review, we will take a look at one of the FirstFitness weight loss products; the Slim 'N Up herbal supplement. This product promises to reduce hunger and increase energy. According to the company website, the ingredients in Slim 'N Up include vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, Magnesium and Chromium.
The formula also includes a "synergistic proprietary blend" that includes Bitter Orange Fruit Extract, L-Tyrosine, Green Tea Leaf Extract , Dandelion Root, Coffee Bean Extract, Cola Nut, Guarana Fruit Extract, Guarana Fruit Powder, 2AEP Complex, Potassium Biphosphate, Garcinia Fruit Extract, Cayenne Fruit, Ginger Root, Bladderwrack whole plant, Kelp whole plant, Chitin, Valerian Root, L-Carnitine, Alpha Ketoglutarate, Gymnema Leaf, Yohimbe Root, Jujube Seed, Blue Flag Rhizome, Bromelain, Lipase, Beta Sitosterol, Mustard Seed.
This incredibly long ingredient list makes us wonder if any of the ingredients contained within will have much effect at all. We prefer products that contain a handful of active, effective ingredients for best results. While this FirstFitness formula contains some good substances for weight loss like green tea and chromium, we seriously doubt they will provide much benefit with so many filler ingredients to cloud the effectiveness.
According to the company website, all purchases are backed by a 100% money back guarantee.
- The product contains some good weight loss ingredients.
- Purchases are backed by a money back guarantee.
- We were unable to find a price on products.
- The shopping link did not appear to be functional at the time of this review.
- The long ingredient list may affect the effectiveness of the formula.
Weight loss supplements are plentiful today, and most can be purchased with a simple click of the mouse. When products are difficult to find and purchase, it does not make shopping for supplements very convenient. We are also concerned about the long ingredient lists that may make the FirstFitness formulas less efficient. We believe there are more effective products that are more readily available.
