Ladies, if you have a few trouble spots of cellulite, particularly on your lower body, rest assured you are not alone. If you’ve done any amount of searching on the internet about how to rid yourself of this undesirable problem, you may have come across a product called “The Truth About Cellulite” by Joey Atlas. So what is The Truth About Cellulite really all about and does it actually work?
The Truth About Cellulite: Review
I looked into this product more to find out exactly what it is and what you can expect if you decide to purchase this program. You can read my Truth About Cellulite review below.
The Truth About Cellulite: Product Overview
The product is actually named ‘Naked Beauty – The SYMULAST Method’, but it has become commonly known as just ‘Truth About Cellulite’ because of Joey’s website name and popular cellulite reduction video presentation, which reveals the truth about cellulite and why other methods that you have tried will only ever give you limited results.
Name: Naked Beauty: The Symulast Method (a.k.a The Truth About Cellulite)
Author: Joey Atlas
Available at: Online at TruthAboutCellulite.com
Naked Beauty/The Symulast method was created purely to get rid of stubborn cellulite through a targeted exercise program.
Targeted specifically towards the fairer sex, this product is a solution for reducing the appearance of your cellulite that really can work, because it treats the cause of cellulite, not just the symptoms.
If you are a woman who has tried nearly everything to get rid of those unsightly dimples, and find yourself getting frustrated that nothing seems to work, then this may be the solution you are looking for.
So How Does It Work?
To get rid of cellulite, we must understand what causes it. Watching the free presentation video explains why cellulite forms – because the underlying muscles grow weak with disuse as we age. This causes a flabby, loose foundation for the overlying skin to sit on top of, which in turn results in the puckering and dimpling that we know as cellulite.
Specific, targeted exercises with proper form, tempo and sequencing are the secret to getting rid of your cellulite. Joey calls this method “SYMULAST” – short for Synergystic Muscle Layer Stimulation, and it’s designed to strengthen and firm the muscles below your skin, giving the skin on top a firm foundation to lay smoothly on top of as the muscles beneath start to tighten. The result?A reduction of the dimples and shadows we see as cellulite.
If you follow this method, you can reduce your cellulite with just 3 fifteen-minute workouts per week. Of course, if you’re willing to fight that stubborn cellulite with all you’ve got, you’ll see better results if you can dedicate a bit more time – but you’ll never be looking at anything more than 45 minutes per workout with this program.
The name of the game with the Symulast Method is efficiency, and I like it.

About the Author
The SYMULAST Method was created by Joey Atlas, self-proclaimed women’s body enhancement specialist and personal trainer. In the video below Joey explains why he created the Naked Beauty product, and shows you just one move you can start doing today to combat your cellulite.
Joey holds a degree and masters in Exercise Science and Physiology, and has been helping women around the world get rid of their cellulite for over 20 years.
He also created the Ultimate Lower Body Makeover program for women. This is an older product that looks like as though is was the foundation for the Naked Beauty program.
Several of the same exercises are presented in both products, yet in the Naked Beauty/Symulast Method, the workout routine has clearly been further refined to a more concise and efficient version.
The Good and the Bad
- Treats the root cause of cellulite, not just the symptoms!
- Exercises can be performed with little-to-no equipment, anywhere, anytime. No need for expensive gym memberships
- Produces results, with a proven system that will work for everyone
- Manageable workout lengths – you can get results in as little as 15 minutes, 3 times a week
- Simple, effective and low-impact with straightforward video demonstrations
- Product presentation is not the most professional
- Video workouts are not overly entertaining, instead they are to the point (no music tracks either, but you can play your own if you like)
- Not much material. Don’t expect pages of background information (if you are interested, this kind of info is actually available on Joey’s site for free – so maybe not really a negative?)
- Videos not downloadable – they need to be streamed, so you can’t watch them without internet connection
Who Is Naked Beauty:The Symulast Method For?
It is for everyday women who are frustrated with seemingly permanent cellulite – no, you don’t have to give up all hope and just accept it!
If you suffer from stubborn cellulite on your lower body, and pills, lotions and massagers haven’t worked for you, then this program is worth a shot. It treats one of the main root causes of cellulite, instead of just trying to mask the symptoms like most anti-cellulite products.
Age is no issue, as Joey has had clients of all ages (even into their 70s) have success with this program. The program can be performed in the privacy of your own home with nearly no equipment required – so almost anyone already has the resources to give the Symulast Method a go.
This is an exercise program, so you only will get out what you put in. The exercises are not strenuous or overly difficult, but they are effective. You will however, need to dedicate the time to performing them correctly with excellent form and technique.
You will need to set aside at least 15 minutes a day, 3-6 times a week in order to see positive results within 28-60 days.
Tools and Training: What Is The Truth About Cellulite?
The material presented is short but to the point. Initially, I was surprised that there was no extra background material into what causes cellulite, how to prevent it and the like. I thought I would be learning some crazy secrets about the real truth about cellulite! Instead, you just get the Symulast Method: a series of exercises that will combat cellulite on your lower body.
While I thought this was a major downside to begin with, I have since changed my mind. In fact, with a bit of extra digging I found that Joey actually already does provides a plethora of background information about the so-called ‘truth about cellulite’ and why the Symulast Method works in the articles section of his website, and it’s absolutely FREE.
Instead of allowing you to get distracted or sidetracked by reading through reference material, the succinct manual allows you to get straight into actually practicing the Symulast Exercises. 15-20 minutes later, and you’re done with your anti-cellulite workout for the day. Nothing like getting it over and done with right off the bat!
There are eight main exercises that form the Naked Beauty/Symulast Method routine, and these are all to be executed with precise form and timing/tempo. The exercises are all bodyweight exercises, meaning that no extra weights or resistance equipment is required.
Simple and Straightforward
Initially I was disappointed with the amount of material that came with this product, but I’ve since changed my mind about how I feel about the Naked Beauty/Symulast Method product.
The amount of material presented is not a lot and the main Symulast Method can be summarized in just 7 pages, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s super effective. A long and complicated workout is not always better, and Joey has really condensed the routine to something that is very streamlined and efficient for the amount of time invested.
Low Impact, Non-strenuous
The system is low impact and not strenuous. It is designed for everyday women who just want to get rid of their cellulite. You won’t be sweating out your entire day’s intake of water, but you will feel the burn in your legs. The fact that the exercises are done under control and simple bodyweight also greatly lowers any risk of injury.
Printable Version or Follow-Along Videos
The printable version of the Symulast Method is a step-by-step guide for how to do the exercises, with pictures, but if you’re anything like me, you’ll find it easier to follow along to the video.
You get a iPad version of the workout…
…or can follow along to a slightly longer version (the exact same Naked Beauty exercise routine):
The Naked Beauty printable pdf guide goes through all the Symulast exercises with instructions and pictures. This is a great reference to print out and take with you if you are travelling, or just as a reminder about the sequence of exercises once you have become familiar with them through watching and following along to the videos.
There aren’t that many exercises, so the entire sequence is easily memorized after a week or so.
How Long Does it Take?
The personal cellulite removal exercise schedule that is accessible in the client access area provides 3 sample schedules that have you doing some form of exercise 6-7 days a week.
Before you get too worried, you’ll only really be spending between 5-30 minutes on exercise per day, which is extremely manageable. I should also note that the main Symulast routine is only prescribed 3-4 times a week, with a few other optional routines thrown in for good measure (if you want to see great results in other common problem areas for women).
Here is a sample of one of the schedules, and it’s quite easy to customize your own.
Do I Need Equipment?
One of the best things I like about this program is that it can be done anywhere because you don’t really need equipment.
I say “don’t really” because you will need access to a step (between 6 – 12 inches high is a good starting point) to do some of the exercises. However, there are many options here and in nearly all cases you’ll be able to improvise something or otherwise purchase a rubbermaid step quite cheaply.
If you don’t have a dedicated step that you can use, then a sturdy chair, low table, stack of text books, or even a set of stairs if you have access to some will substitute just fine.
Truth About Cellulite Support
You get lifetime access to the client access area, where you will be able to download any future updates to the Naked Beauty/Symulast program. The client access area also has an email address where you can obtain support if you need it.
When you purchase the product, you get lifetime updates, so if Joey goes on to improve and refine the program further, you’ll have full access.
Be aware that the Truth About Cellulite product is not some fancy, professional production masterpiece filmed in a studio. Instead, it’s obviously filmed in Joey’s own home (makes sense, what with it being a home workout program and all). Don’t let the poor production quality fool you though, this is still a system that will work to help rid you of your cellulite, and after all, that is the main goal.
The Naked Beauty Symulast Method retails for $49.95 and comes with a no questions asked 60 day money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with your results. Since the product is purchased through clickbank, you can rest assured that this guarantee will be upheld, as clickbank is a reputable company which carries its own product guarantees that it is known to uphold.
Initially, I thought this was a bit expensive for what it is, but to be honest – the fact that it works makes it worth its weight in gold (to use the expression – funny/poorly phrased because being a digital product it doesn’t weigh anything! 😛 ). Plus you get 4 great home workout routines that you can use time and time again, so when you compare the price to a fitness class, personal training session, gym membership, or even group workout session, you start to see the value.
Within the program there are a few upsells, most notably in the added bonus products. Most of these will require you to sign up your email and address in exchange for receiving the bonus material, or otherwise only offer just a little taste of a larger product which is then for sale. I would advise not signing up for these if you’re not interested, as you’ll inevitably receive multiple emails trying to sell you more stuff if you submit your email address.
The only direct upsell for the Truth About Cellulite product is completely optional, and is a physical hard copy of the printable pdf manual and DVD version of the online videos if you prefer to have these as physical products (which retail for $70.00). Since you are already a customer, you get a $49.95 discount, so the hardcopies will only cost you an extra $20.05 plus shipping.
Does ‘Symulast’ Really Work?
In my opinion, the ‘Symulast’ method is a bit of a marketing gimmick designed to sound like a revolutionary new method.
So does Symulast actually work? I would have to say Yes. ‘Symulast’ is just another word for good-old-fashioned exercise. The right kind of exercises which will increase muscle tissue beneath fat layers can help to provide support to these fatty tissues if you are consistent.
Although I don’t quite agree with the gimmicky marketing, I must say that I do like the way that the exercises are instructed – the slow and controlled way (or as Joey would probably put it: ‘the SYMULAST way’) of performing the Truth About Cellulite exercises does seem to be one key to their effectiveness.
My Final Opinion of the Truth About Cellulite
Despite appearances and it’s simplicity, at it’s heart The Truth About Cellulite is actually a very good program that can give great results. The price seems high for what you get, but it is a program you can use over and over again – and if you are not happy with it, you can always opt for your money back.
At the end of the day, Joey Atlas has created a product that will tone up your lower body and treat the root cause of unwanted cellulite to get you the smooth, sexy lower body all women want. You only need to put it into practice to see what it can do for you.
