Tony Robbins Ultimate Edge Scam
Tony Robbins is flooding cable with 30 minute commercials selling his motivational, self-help, and success CDs called The Ultimate Edge. I have DirecTV and there are multiple showings at all times, day and night. I listen to CDs on a variety of topics while I drive, so I decided to buy The Ultimate Edge.
First off, be warned; The Ultimate Edge runs over $350 with shipping and they try to sell you even more once they have you on the phone. Also, The Ultimate Edge is largely recycled from Tony Robbins’ Personal Power program from years back.
There are serious problems with the program that require mention. First, he spends a lot of time on relationships. What he fails to mention is that his marriage of 15 years ended in divorce. But don’t worry about Tony Robbins spending his evenings alone. He remarried less than six months later. How is that for building relationships? Click here for more details.

What is your experience with Tony Robbins?
Second, he talks about exercising in the morning to increase metabolism. I have no problem with that statement. However, included with his program is a DVD outlining how you only need to work-out at the gym 3 minutes every few weeks. The DVD is really a tool to sell more stuff. I believe in consistency and Tony presents a dichotomy in the materials sent.
The most disturbing part of the program is his discussion on balancing your blood Ph, the acid-alkaline level. He admits the diet advice he gave for years was wrong, but now he has the latest and greatest idea in better health. His claim is that many health problems result from too much acid in the system. He wants you to eat more vegetables, which is sound advice. But it doesn’t stop there. He presents a diet I find unbalanced and a cleansing process I would never try without first consulting my doctor.
My skepticism required I do my own research on acid/alkaline balancing. It seems the medical community doesn’t agree with Tony Robbins. In the articles linked below, it is stated that there is no research to date leading to the conclusions Tony presents. Further, if you have too much acid in your system, faster breathing removes it. No need to buy more Tony Robbins products to get the job done.

It would behoove you to verify what is presented before putting your health on the line.
I’m returning The Ultimate Edge for a refund. If they give me a headache, I’ll let you know.
