Is it a scam or legit? Read the Truth About Cellulite review below to find out more…
What is The Truth About Cellulite?
The Truth About Cellulite is a program aimed at one thing: getting rid of the cellulite in your “trouble spots”:
Most women–and some men–suffer from cellulite around these areas, and this program has been developed to target these trouble spots in order to get rid of cellulite as effectively as possible.
The Mind Behind The Truth About Cellulite
Joey Atlas has been writing and creating fitness-related videos since 1999, but there is VERY little information on him–save for some details on an Amazon author page.
According to the Joey Atlas Amazon author page, he has a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science.
Other than that limited information, there is little to be found about the author. Not very confidence-boosting, in my opinion!
A Look at The Truth About Cellulite
Now we’re going to dive into the program itself, to take a look at just how legit it actually is. A lot of websites claim it’s a scam, but in this review we’re going to study the manuals and training videos to see just how effective they really are for cellulite blasting.
Initial Online Coaching Session
Immediately upon paying for the Truth About Cellulite program, you are taken to a landing page. The landing page starts out with a 20-minute audio file where Joey Atlas introduces himself and gives you a short coaching session. Basically, it’s all encouraging people by telling them what the program is supposed to do.
The Symulast Method
The program uses something called the Synergistic Muscle Layer Stimulation–or Symulst–Method. Basically, it’s all about doing exercises that focus on the trouble spots: butt, hips, thighs, back of the legs, and abs. Basically, it’s a lower body-focused program that is supposed to get rid of all the cellulite by doing targeted exercises, both to develop muscle and burn fat around your legs and core.
All of the exercises in the program are meant to be done at home, so there’s no need to go to the gym. You simply need a Yoga mat and the videos, and you can follow along as the videos explain the Symulast Method.
Video #1: Naked Beauty Instructional Video
As you click on the video, you are introduced to Joey Atlas–creator of the program–and Belinda Benn, an Australian fitness model.
With no muss or fuss, you get right into the workout, starting with simple exercises like:
- Straight Leg Lifts
- Modified Shoulder Bridges
- Single Leg Lifts
- Natural Squats
- Step Ups
These are just a few of the exercises you will do in the video, and you’ll find that all of the exercises target your legs–both your quads (the front) and the hamstrings (the back). By targeting your legs, the Symulast Method aims to build muscle–thereby burning fat–of your quads and hams.
Video #2: Follow-Along Video
For those who are already introduced to the program, this is the video to do to get the workout done quickly. There is no back-chatter like there is in the instructional video, but you’ll just power through the workout with this video.
If you’ve already done the workout a few times and are accustomed to the proper form and speed, this is the video for you to watch.
The two videos above are the ones that aim to sculpt your legs and blast the cellulite from your trouble zones, but the Truth About Cellulite program offers a couple more bonus videos:
Flat Sexy Stomach
This video is filled with at-home exercises you can do to target your abs and core–a must for those who are trying to get rid of cellulite.

In addition to the videos, there are a few PDF files that you can download from the landing page. These PDF files include:

What We Think of The Truth About Cellulite
Overall, the Truth About Cellulite looks good on the face of it, but it’s just not as complete as you’d expect from a workout program for the price. It provides EXCELLENT value in terms of a workout program, but there’s zero information on what foods to eat to get rid of cellulite.
If you’re already on a healthy weight loss/cellulite-burning diet, this could be the workout program for you!
Instead of needing heavy weights, dumbbells, and fancy exercise machines, this workout program uses ONLY bodyweight exercises. Not only does this make the workout cheaper, but some will argue that bodyweight exercises are the most effective.
At-Home Workout Program
No need to leave your house or hit the gym to do this workout. You can even do it at your office if you find yourself short on time, and the workouts are designed to be done pretty quickly. Whether you’re traveling, stuck at home with a newborn, or unable to reach the gym, it’s a workout you can do anywhere and at any time.
Short, Easy to Follow Videos
The fact that the videos are short means that it will much easier for people to do in their free time. Even if you don’t have an hour to hit the gym, you can take time in your lunch break to do the workout. Within 15 to 20 minutes, you can blast through each video workout and finish.
We’re Not Fond Of
No Diet Advice
Every good workout program should provide at least MINIMAL diet advice, because eating right is the only way to get good results from your workout program.
The Truth About Cellulite doesn’t tell you what foods you SHOULD and SHOULDN’T eat to deal with your cellulite, so you may not see the results you want simply because you’re not following any specific diet plan–or at the very least, some rules of how to eat right to get rid of cellulite.
No Lifestyle Changes
Did you know that smoking, drinking, not getting enough sleep, and stress all affect your risk of developing cellulite? Of course you don’t, because this program didn’t include any information on the subject.
Once again, the program–while it does include a good workout–seems a bit barebones on all the other important details.
Limited Information on Author
Who is Joey Atlas? Don’t you think an author with a program as famous as this one would provide a bit more information on himself–or at least be a bit easier to find? I find it hard to trust any program creator who doesn’t provide more information on their background and skills.
Overall, this program is worth the price, but only if you are already dieting to get rid of cellulite. The Symulast Method seems fairly effective, but the truth is that there is no way to target fat loss. You can sculpt the muscles of your legs like the program claims, but there’s no guarantee that it will burn away the cellulite.
