It Works are a multi-level marketing company that are most well-known for their body wrap product. Ultimate ThermoFit is their fat burner supplement. Whilst it does seem to be fairly safe, we can’t say it will be effective as a weight-loss aid. It is also expensive, has no money-back guarantee, and you may have to sign-up for auto-shipping. Whilst It Works products are usually sold exclusively by “distributors”, there has been uproar amongst the sellers as the company’s products are now being sold on Amazon.
We take a look at It Works Ultimate ThermoFit to find out more.
It Works Ultimate Thermofit is said to kickstart your metabolism and turn your body into a calorie burning furnace with a powerful botanical thermogenic blend.
It Works Ultimate ThermoFit does not appear to have too many side effects.
The recommended retail price is $42.00 but if you sign up to be a Loyal Customer you get a 40% discount, although this includes joining a 3-month auto-ship programme. The Loyal customer price for 60 capsules is $25.00.
It Works Ultimate ThermoFit is advertised as a natural product. It contains plant extracts and herbs including Guarana – which contains caffeine so may perk you up, Dandelion root – a powerful diuretic that may make you urinate more, and some antioxidant-rich berries such as Acai and Green Tea Leaf extract. These may help increase the speed of metabolism.
There are also some diet pill favourites in this supplement including raspberry ketone and capsicum extract believed to increase the metabolism as well as reduce depression.
Most of the ingredients are combined in a branded supplement so you cannot see the true ingredients breakdown but there is little here that is of major concern health wise for most people.
Ultimate ThermoFit is sold by It Works, a direct marketing company that specialises in health and weight loss products.
The main It Works product is not a supplement but a body wrap that supposedly sheds inches from your body after using it for just 45 minutes.
Ultimate ThermoFit is just one in a wide range of supplements and the Wraps appear to be their major line.
To use It Works Ultimate ThermoFit take one capsule 2-3 times daily.
It Works offers network marketing opportunities to individuals and make some pretty impressive claims about how much distributors can hope to earn.
It seems that the main thrust of the business is that you have “wrap parties” at your home or at health and beauty shows, fairs, and you carry out party plan selling.
It Works sellers are called wrapeneurs and the idea is that you host events and make sales directly to people you know.
The It Works website features a video about a woman who quit her job and spends her life having fun and getting rich selling It Works products.
It sounds good but the reality will probably not be as easy as this sounds. For starters, there is a 40-page list of terms and conditions for would be sellers and after looking through these in some detail, it is hard to see how anyone is going to make a living from this.
We looked at the potential earnings you can expect if you become a distributor and according to this information provided by the website, the average annual income works out at about $937 per year.
This is BEFORE any expenses you may incur for hosting parties, publicity, marketing literature or stands at shows $937 a year is o.k. but is it really enough income to enable you to jack in your job as the website suggests?
A couple of sellers are marketing Ultimate ThermoFit via Amazon.com – a fact that has got some It Works distributors complaining. Selling on Amazon is prohibited according to the It Works rules and regulations (40 pages of small print).
It Works are a major business. They recently made the Herald Tribune newspaper after moving to new office premises in Palmetto Florida and including lots of fun stuff within the building such as slides, cocktail bars and free cafes. The business HQ looks a lot like the West Coast IT companies such as Google.
According to information provided by company founder, Mark Pentecost a former high school basketball coach in Michigan:
Since 2010, the company’s annual revenue has spiked from $27 million to $456 million last year. In 2014, it projects to grow again.
With the average distributor earning just $937 per year, it is easy to see just who is getting rich from this!
The Ultimate ThermoFit information claims that this supplement;
Fire up your metabolism and is a naturally based thermogenic formula
There is no evidence or explanation of how these ingredients will achieve these effects. The It Works information does not provide any clinical proof.
The ingredients are in minimal quantities and as with raspberry ketones, lack any evidence that they work
Much of the testing on Green tea, for example, has used much larger daily doses (323 mg ECGC per day) to achieve any weight loss and even this depends on the individual. It is unlikely that the green tea content will reflect the conditions of positive clinical testing.
The same applies to the other ingredients. Clinical tests rely on the correct dosage and test conditions that are rarely reflected by supplement manufacturers.
In addition, it is impossible to find a positive customer review from anyone who is impartial. All the positive comments come from distributors whereas there is a high number of negative comments from impartial users.
The good point about this supplement is that it does not appear to cause too many unpleasant side effects. If you believe in it, you may benefit from a mild placebo effect and some people have claimed that it does enhance energy levels.
It Works Ultimate ThermoFit does not look as if it will work very well. The amount quantities of the listed ingredients are extremely small and we cannot tell how much of any one ingredient is contained in the proprietary blend.

It Works Ultimate ThermoFit is a diet pill that the makers claim has a fat burning effect. Serving size is one capsule.
However, some ingredients look promising and we cannot find any particular health issues. It Works Ultimate ThermoFit looks safe but is unlikely to do much.
According to customer feedback, It Works Ultimate ThermoFit does not appear to have too many side effects.
One customer complained of stomach upset and reported;
Will give you the runs but that’s all.
There is caffeine in this pill so you may experience side effects if you are sensitive,
Ultimate ThermoFit may cause;
See your doctor first if you are taking prescription medication in case of interactions. Some of the ingredients may lower blood sugar levels so if you are diabetic it may affect your medication.
If you have an underlying health condition seek the advice of your doctor before you start taking a supplement and embarking on a weight loss diet.
Despite the long list of It Works rules that state that distributors are not allowed to sell via Amazon, some supplement sellers have angered many of these distributors by selling the supplement on Amazon, anyway.
This means that unlike many of the supplements sold via direct network marketing you do get a real view of customer experiences.
Many customers are not happy with It Works Ultimate ThermoFit.
One lady reported;
I have been on this supplement for over 2 months. I have not lost any weight, and my energy level has not changed at all. If this works for some people, that’s great. But it did nothing for me, and I won’t be buying it again
Another customer reported;
I bought this in hopes that it would help me in my weight loss endeavors but to no avail 🙁 I did however notice I had a bit more energy.)
it’s a waste of money. I got two and I see nothing am still 180. I work out 5 days a week and still see nothing. Save your money
There are positive reviews too but these have been left mainly by people trying to sell this supplement themselves. We were unable to find a genuine impartial positive review.
A typical positive comment was left by an It Works Distributor.
This stuff is golden! Why? Because it actually works.
Especially recommend for people who are already eating healthy and exercising. Don’t let some tell you different. Take one before you eat your big meal, not snacks. I take one for lunch and dinner. I drink only water, lemon water, homemade teas….. etc. Want to know my results? email me
She goes onto provide her email address.
Many of the distributors claim that the Amazon sellers are doing something illegal;
Illegal selling – Buy from direct distributors only and save your money!
is the title of one review.
This reviewer could not help adding her email address either.
We cannot see why it should be “illegal” to sell a product on Amazon. It may be contrary to the wishes of It Works Corporation, but that does not make it illegal, does it?
There does not appear to be a guarantee offered for this supplement. However, if you buy from a distributor you may be able to get your money back if you are dissatisfied.
As with all these direct marketing schemes, buying the supplement is not as easy as simply finding it and buying it online. If you go to the It Works website, you are offered two prices for a bottle of 60 capsules (approximately one month’s supply).
The recommended retail price is $42.00 but if you sign up to be a Loyal Customer you get a 40% discount but this includes joining a 3 months auto-ship programme. There does not appear to be an option to simply buy this supplement without joining the It Works loyalty program. The Loyal customer price for 60 capsules is $25.00
If you don’t agree to this auto ship, you have to pay an added $50.00 membership fee. However, if you commit to three months auto ship, your $50.00 fee is waived. Alternatively, you can search for a distributor and buy It Works Ultimate ThermoFit direct from one of these.
The easiest way to buy Ultimate ThermoFit is via Amazon.com. One bottle of 60 capsules costs $58.99 and includes free shipping to US addresses. If you are looking to buy Ultimate ThermoFit from outside the USA, you can probably find an international distributor via the It Works website.
We are not very impressed with It Works Ultimate ThermoFit. This supplement looks extremely mediocre and we cannot see it doing much for enhancing your weight loss.
As with all these direct selling schemes, the supplement tends to gets forgotten in all the hype.
For example, the It Works information provides 40 pages of rules and regulations for would be distributors but lacks any detailed explanation about the supplement itself. There is no explanation about how it works, no clinical evidence, and the supplement lacks a full ingredients list.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to the product and this one is simply not good enough to make it onto our approved list. We like that it seems safe but it is expensive and just does not seem to be worth the money.
It does seem for the majority of distributors this is unlikely to replace your “day job”. You may be lucky and be in the right environment where the It Works Wraps are popular and people actually want It Works supplements. If so, good luck with that one! However, in our experience, only the people running these businesses get to make any real money.
It is an easy decision. We reject It Works Ultimate ThermoFit.
