Greer Childers Shows Us an Extreme Face Workout

I have found yet another extreme way to exercise your face.

I recently came across a video featuring Greer Childers, the 61-year-old blonde who can currently be seen on TV infomercials promoting her Shapely Secrets and Body Flex workout and diet programs. At least I think it is Greer Childers because it sure does look like her and the title of the video is “Body Flex”, which is the same as the name of one of the programs she is currently promoting.

(If you will let me offer a comment on something off topic: I hate when people put videos online and provide no info or context about it. When was the video made? Where did you get it from? Who is in it? Don’t make us guess!)

I’m pretty sure this comes from these Body Flex workout tapes. According to Amazon, the date of these tapes is 1992, but it looks really 80s—boy does this thing look 80s! Bad 80s hair, bad 80s synthesizer music, bad 80s workout clothes.

In this video Greer demonstrates a fantastic way to keep your face in top form:

Between this technique, Facial Flex, and Rejuvenique, I’m surprised anyone has wrinkles at all anymore.

  • The hair and music gave me a flashback to some cheesy 1980s porn video. (VHS forever!)

  • That is Greer Childers in all her poodle haired glory, and that is the first part of “Body Flex” workout video.

    Amazing, isn’t it?

  • This made me laugh so hard i pooped.

  • LOL!! I remember this infomercial! Hahahaha!

  • You people must be bored and need something to make fun of……try looking in the mirror. Greer Childers has nothing to be ashamed of. She knows these exercises look crazy, as she says in her videos. The only way to know if they really work is to try them for a reasonable time; they are very good stretching exercises. Unless she has had plastic surgery and has not admitted it, you can’t deny that she looks beautiful. No amount of running can make your face and neck look that good, so I’m going to give them a try. The FTC charged her with false advertising for the claims set for 7 to 14 days; this was bad advise from the marketing firm that produced her ads………this charge does not mean that the stretching exercises do not work over time. Greer, I want to look as good as you do as I age…….You Look Wonderful, Darling!

  • #5:
    Yeah, she has a tight face and hardly any wrinkles but I really doubt it’s from these exercises. I think it has less to do with making funny faces and more to do with COSMETIC SURGERY.

    Comment by Me on August 26, 2008 at 2:38 am

  • I actually bought this tape because I was a mother of two and really was not pleased by the extra punds. I know that it may sound crazy but I have no reason to lie to any of you. But I did lose 3 1/2 inches body total within the first week. I was not able to do any physical work out and this was the answer for me. I was in a size 18 after having my second child but by the time she was 6months old I was in a size 14. I have never dieted and never will. This worked for me. Also my sister was in a size 38 and thanks to bodyflex she is now in a 24. She have been doing it faithfully for the past 2 years and have lost a lot of weight. She no longer have to take insulin shots because of the weight lost. I know that some may be skeptical and it may not work the same for everyone. I am not here to try and change you mind I am just here to share my story and how it worked for at least one (ME).

  • Hey
    I agree with comment by tried it. I have used the body flex and loved it and saw results I am also using the “Shapley secrets in seven” Greer’s other program and love that as well. AND the face execises work as well as the wonderful face aeorbics CD by Judith Olivia. I am 57 years old and thanks to these women I don’t look my age and I have had NO surguries or botox injects. Try it you might like it…AND the shapely secrets is done in 7 minutes OUTSTANDING GEER!!

  • It does look wierd but it works!!!

  • sorry I was typing so fast (weird)

    Comment by Kimberly on November 3, 2008 at 4:22 pm

  • This is the answer because there is nothing that will give you the overall effects of doing this program. I used to go to the gym and I would get is bulky. Furthermore it did not help my face at all. This lady is a genius because this works fast and it is so easy. I am so lucky I found this product. I swear by it. I am 36 and I have 21 year old boys hitting on me in supermarkets because of how young my face and body looks. Greer you are my savior.

    Comment by nicolle on November 8, 2008 at 9:15 am

  • I love her program too. So much so that I have worn out the video tape. Anyone know where I can buy a new one? The original Advanced program is not for sale anymore.

    Comment by Juanita on November 16, 2008 at 8:16 pm

  • I agree entirely with the last positive comments. I hate exercise but doing Body Flex is easy and gives you results in as little as 3 days. I’ve been 3 weeks and I’ve lost 10 1/2 inches overall. It REALLY works:-) I’m 56 and I’m getting the double-chin. I’m watching it disappear over these 3 weeks. My waist has gone from 36″ to 31″ in 3 weeks! I have not dieted and have actually been eating sweets! It’s great! I’ve been doing it off and on for 10 years. I never worry if I eat myself out of shape because sooner or later I just goi back to Body Flex and I feel and look great again. IT REALLY WORKS…..HONEST.Thanks Greer!

    Comment by Mary Ann Nace on November 23, 2008 at 12:32 pm

  • I have done her motionless exercise. I am a big girl and want you to know I lost 4 inches around my arms in a month. I love this program. I just wonder how many times a day is best to do these exercises.

  • These comments are conveniently turning into another Greer infomercial…..

    Comment by Whatajokethisis on December 7, 2008 at 3:36 am

  • Sorry folks, but I’m here to say that Greer’s Body Flex program really does work. It is a great stretch at minimum, and I have been using her video on and off for more than 10 years. Just started it again two days ago and I already feel and look better. I find that I get the best results from working out to her video twice a day and by drinking at least six glasses of water. Works for me.

    Comment by Barb on January 1, 2009 at 2:04 pm

  • Forget all the naysayers out there. This works. You have to concentrate, and do it right; getting the technique mastered is key. Fast, easy and sends your energy through the roof. I am 49 and frequently asked if I’m in my mid-30’s.
    Thanks, Greer.

    Comment by callie on January 3, 2009 at 5:08 pm

  • Dear Viewers,

    Greer Childer is a unique individual that was 200 pounds and found a wonderful way to get the body in shape in her 1992 VHS I & II Body Flex workout.

    Why criticize someone for wanting to look happy and healthy and have their hair and clothes any way they want to?

    Look for the good she has to offer in the tapes and you will be surprised at how the exercises are fulfilling and the music pleasant and the hair and clothes fun.


    Comment by Kristen on January 10, 2009 at 12:32 pm

  • I used body flex years ago. I used it until my VCR broke the tape. I couldnt find the tape anywhere. I have been doing Weight Watchers for almost a year. Over the summer I would walk and ride a bike. I live in MD and during the winter months I cannot be outside working out due to Asthma. A few days ago I was in my local WAL MART. I saw Shapely Secrets. It was $39.99, and worth every penny. Yesterday was my second day doing Shapely secrets. I can see and feel a difference. Greer Childers is amazing, yes a little old fashioned but her work outs work. I recommend them to everyone!

    Comment by Amanda on January 14, 2009 at 8:00 am

  • Yes, she does look funny DOING the exercise. But she looks great otherwise.
    I, too, have to say that her exercises work without a doubt. AND her claims of 7-14 days is true. You do see results- but dammit you have to do the exercises! Not just think about it.
    I did her program several years ago. I walked and walked ever day, but my body shape stayed the same. I did her exercises an lo and behold I went from a size 16( I weighed 167 5’10”) to a size 12. The weight stayed the same but the body shape changed. I swear this is true. It is the breathing- that strange looking but POWERFUL breathing that isolates oxygen in some way and sends it to the muscle you are targeting for reduction. It really does work. AND I have to get my self back into this program!

    Comment by BEE on January 24, 2009 at 5:16 pm

  • I know I have seen Greer on talk shows as a person who has had many many plastic surgeries and is addicted to them and has every part of her body worked on. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I know it’s her.

    Comment by Kat on January 25, 2009 at 4:40 pm

  • i went online to read more on Greer and found this site. Since I have lost 24 lbs. using her program, I must chime in! Since it only takes 7 minutes a day, I have no excuse not to do it!

    Comment by Barbara on February 4, 2009 at 5:33 am

  • i am so very happy with greer. stick to it and what a reward. thank you.i am sorry that so many people can be so jealous.

    Comment by brenda l shaw on February 20, 2009 at 1:26 pm

  • I can’t believe people are such suckers!

    It’s the diet that’s included in the program that makes you loose weight, NOT the stupid excercises!

    (at least the videos are hilarious…maybe the laughs are worth the price!)

    Comment by poopsie on April 11, 2009 at 4:22 pm

  • It’s a shame some people are so closed minded and ignorant. I tried this program years ago and it worked beautifully. I did not diet at all poopsie. I simply did the breathing exercises. I was on line today trying to find the old book that I lost and came across this site. Next time try it before you comment on something you obviously don’t know anything about.

    Comment by ALTA SANCHEZ on June 8, 2009 at 9:40 am

  • Body Flex works for me. It keeps me flexible and those facial exercises do work even though they look silly. So what? Just don’t let anyone see you doing them and don’t do them in the car unless you want other drivers to have a laugh or freak out 🙂 I bought Shapely Secrets and need to try that as well. I keep returning to Body Flex – much easier than going to a gym or on walks. As with all programs, discipline and consistency are necessary. Thanks Greer for your products and continual inspiration!

    Comment by Bev on August 26, 2009 at 4:30 pm

  • I’ve been doing these silly looking exercises on and off for years (always have to wait until the rest of the family is out of the house), but I’ve got to give the woman her due. When you break it down, what she’s presenting is the same technique found in yoga and I doubt anyone would shout that down. This helped me to loose some serious inches after nothing else was working. And no, I didn’t diet. Upped my water intake though.

    By the way, I’m coming up hard and fast on my 50th birthday with two children in college and I have no trouble passing myself off as 30. Just sayin’ you might want to actually check it out before badmouthing it.

    Comment by Phillipa on October 8, 2009 at 12:35 pm

  • I started Body Flex about 16 years ago and loved the way I felt. The energy, flexibility and inch loss kept me happily motivated but the best surprise was how that powerful breathing technique seemed to cure my chronic colds and sinus infections. Glad I googled her today, I need to get back to the program. Through a few moves and job changes, I lost track of time and my fitness needs. Can’t wait!!

    Comment by Lesley on January 22, 2010 at 1:31 pm

  • Hate to disappoint the naysayers, but this works. I did NOT follow any sort of diet with the program – and YES, it still worked.

    The first time I watched it, I laughed until I cried and thought I had been totally ripped off. At first, I didn’t even bother trying it – I stuffed it on my shelf with my library of other workouts. Months later, I pulled it off the shelf and figured “what the heck” and gave it a try. Imagine my surprise when it did work. I’m almost 45, a mother, and still wear size 2 jeans. I use this program off and on, but I am currently only using this program (no other diets or programs, and it still works as well as it did several years ago.

    I do think Greer has had plenty of plastic surgery, but regardless, she still looks amazing.

    Comment by Holly on January 26, 2010 at 5:14 pm

  • Hi,
    10 years ago I saw the infomercial and was intrigued and bought the VHS…within 2 weeks my husbands who never and I mean never comments on my shape said “hey that exercise program really works I can see you are getting toned. I’m a petite 4’10” weighing 102 lbs – I may want to drop 5 lbs but what I really needed was toning up. This system really works…I own every series sold – the 1st series I bought 3 times because because I burned the ribbon from the VHS would melt or break from playing almost everyday. My sister did the program religiously for 2 years and looks amazing for 53. I am 55 – petite and I’m back on doing what I call my PAH’s. Love the deep breathing – but you must get the technique right….don’t give up and you’ll get hooked simply by the results – it feels so good!
    To your health.

    Comment by Lea on March 13, 2010 at 12:50 pm

  • The BodyFlex program WORKS! What sold me what including a tape measure in the whole kit. I have been doing the Bodyflex for sometime now and have had amazing results. The first week I lost 10 1/2″ and I kept on losing. It makes you feel more energized. For anyone the might still want more information, Greer wrote the book “Be a Loser,” read it and you’ll have a better understanding of HOW and the importance of oxygen and breathing.

    Comment by Rose on March 28, 2010 at 2:22 pm

  • In 1991 I was lucky enough to take a class Greer offered with about 25 other people. It really worked wonders – so I was delighted a year or so later when the program became available on a big scale. It’s amazing even if you look funny while doing it.

    Comment by Kathy on May 7, 2010 at 11:02 am

  • I have say that if you are looking to tone your face and body, Body Flex is the program you want to try. I like the 7 minutes aspect, cuz I hate to exercise. I am 57 and I really enjoy the comments I get from younger men who think that I “really cannot be” as old as I am. I have had flattering comments on my slim mid section and slim waistline. I used to walk miles a day, I got bigger legs and a suntan.. Nay sayers, give it a try

    Comment by Linda on June 11, 2010 at 2:40 pm

  • She looks like a 50 year old version of Victoria Paris.

  • hahahaha I remember seeing this from Everything Is Terrible (.com) Their humor is very similar to that of this site’s… you may want to check them out.

    Comment by Harry on July 24, 2010 at 8:04 pm

  • I love this workout. I’ve had it for so many years, I transferred the original VHS to digital and every few years when I feel like I need to lose a few… I go right back to this. It’s crazy but it works!

    Comment by MrsBigA on September 9, 2010 at 9:31 pm


    This lady is full of it. She is a life long runner which is why she is so thin. She got in on the 80’s early 90’s work-out craze band wagon with this because she was broke.

    Comment by Ann on October 14, 2010 at 7:48 am

  • Whoever scoffs at this is not doing the exercise properly. I’ve done Body Flex off and on over the years and can give it fair credit to a huge chunk of my weight loss. I was 119 pounds overweight at my peak. Now I am only 43 pounds from my goal weight. I just got online to purchase another weight loss system to shed the rest.—Until I started reading reviews. Which lead me to this.–The one thing I know and love, Body Flex. It’s great to hear positive comments about it. And now I have the answer to shedding the rest—BODY FLEX! All I needed was a little reasuance to keep doing what is tried and true. Thank you, Greer. To all who feel the same as me; there will always be ridiculers. They can go ahead and do things the hard way!!

    Comment by Stephanie on December 9, 2010 at 4:27 am

  • I am 67 years today and I have had this BodyFlex workout tapes and I also got some Shaplely Secrets, but if I could purchase the BodyFlex from Greer I would love it. If so, I would even pay even more that the others. I like it the best of every thing that I have done and I do not diet (I also my diet is good, but the shape and makes you feel good. Please let me know

    Comment by Linda Welch on January 8, 2011 at 9:03 am

  • Body Flex WORKS!!! Ten years ago, I started doing it at a size 14/16 and within two months, I was down to a size 4/6…no joke! I don’t know why something that is so easy and WORKS we fall away from, but when all else fails…it’s always back to Body Flex! It’s almost unbelievable how easy and fast it is to get in shape with this, but it truly works! I am on my third day and I have felt soreness and a big change already, even from the very first day! So, please don’t be a skeptic until you try it and give it a good try…make sure you do the breathing right or it will be done in vain. Good luck to all you Body Flexers!

    Comment by Dana on January 27, 2011 at 8:33 pm

  • Oh and for all of you skeptics, I’ve tried it all and NOTHING has gotten me in shape easier and faster than Body Flex, so this time I will be sticking to it permanently. Thanks Greer!!!

    Comment by Dana on January 27, 2011 at 8:35 pm

  • Greer’s work is fantastic, period. Her fluffy mane clearly grabs attention. She’s graceless, awkward, wrinkle free, 5’10, maybe 57 then, and has a picture perfect shape. 2 weeks to remarkable change is no exaggeration. Try it, you’ll FEEL your stomach flatten.

    This is for real. It works. It’s HEALTHful. I KNOW. Refs to other works makes total sense to those of you who think they are just ‘Convenient.’ Fans are naturally enthusiastic.

    Common beliefs have nothing to do with what is but what is promoted. We believe only facelifts work; eyesight can’t be corrected without lenses; diseases, like cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure ‘just happen and there is no cure. WRONG!

    Greer is about PROFIT and about HELPING people. It WORKS.

    Greer’s old tapes and book, Be a Loser, often appear in thrift shops and online auctions.

    Facial movements are derived from Yoga. Breathing makes a difference.

    Look up Exercising in Bed and see how one man reversed ill health and became biologically young. Check your libraries for what is GOOD for you. Question ‘authority’ and benefit.

    Get Greer and do it to get healthier and feeling and looking great.

    Henry Ford said, ‘believe you can or believe you cannot and you are right.’ WISE man. Can’t do what you believe you cannot.

    Comment by clare on February 9, 2011 at 11:44 am

  • I checked the original Body Flex out from the library. I laughed so hard I couldn’t take the workout seriously! Also, I just found out the Federal Trade Commission shut down sales and made her give out refunds for making statements she couldn’t back up. Here’s the actual legal documents.

    Comment by JenR on February 13, 2011 at 11:44 am

  • I always see these in thrift stores. Yesterday I picked up the 1992 tapes 1 & 2. I am going to try them.

    Comment by J on April 4, 2011 at 5:43 pm

  • Yo People !

    Sorry to say, Body Flex DOES work.
    I bought the book Be A Loser years ago.
    Only gave it a half-a$$ effort back then.
    But last weekend I decided to be serious about the breathing and a few of the positions.

    One week later – I can see myself firming up.
    And I lift with free weights on a regular basis.
    But with Body Flex I see different results – it is just the extra “oomph” I need.
    It got rid of flab and fat that just wouldn’t go away.

    Plus the breathing feels so good, and will get you to breathing naturally and via your diaphragm – which is an excellent overall health benefit.
    Thank you Greer!

    Comment by Wisconsin on May 28, 2011 at 2:38 pm

  • I bought this program 25 yrs. ago in VHS form. I can honestly say I have never had a workout that can take inches off as fast as this one can. I was totally amazed at the way my body looked. LOVE IT!!! People if you would only try this program you to would be amazed. Starting it again today.
    Greer, don’t every let ppl get you down, we know this works. You just got to do it.

    Comment by Carla on January 17, 2012 at 9:46 am

  • Have used Greer Childers workout program since 1996 and it has always worked for me…it is fantastic. I receive compliments on how toned I look. I think she is terrific. Thank God for her programs.

    Comment by Trish on October 12, 2012 at 3:11 pm

  • I also have used (and been abused) for using Greer’s methods for about 5 years now. The proof is in the pudding…. when one of my adult sons told me I was looking “buff”, I knew this is working. I’m not a thin/skinny person by anyone’s standards, but I am no longer embarrassed to wear sleeveless clothing. As a lifelong HATER of exercise, I will state emphatically that her program WILL tone you. Weight loss is up to you.

    Comment by Nancy on December 5, 2013 at 11:32 pm

  • Reading all these comments, I to have used this one since early 90’s and I do say they work, I Hates exercising, but every time I get back on the program I lose a lot of inches and weight. Going to start again, I have both Greer exercise programs, I have a really bad back plus osteoarthritis, flibermagia, scoliosis and 15 deterating disk, spearing in several places so I use the one’s that don’t hurt, when I lose inches and weight I look and feel better about myself, it’s just starting but I no if I do…I will look good in two weeks, everyone starts to notice. Just wish my back would be as easy to fix.. which unfortunately that will never happen.

    Comment by sherrie on February 10, 2016 at 10:52 am

  • This program works! I used Body Flex years ago and got results quickly. I felt great energy and within three months was turning heads. I looked great! Since then I had let myself get out of shape but I never stopped doing my face exercises. People say that my two younger sisters look older than me! I am 58 and just got my old tapes out again. I am excited to do it again! Looking forward to the energy boost plus looking good again. Stay tuned, I’ll report back! Diane R. From Missouri

    Comment by Diane on October 10, 2016 at 7:37 pm

  • Body flex received my attention in 1992. I went from a size 12 to a 7 in three months. Then like everything, i forgot about it. Recently I’ve dealt with a lot of stress and keep gaining 10 pounds every year on every diet. Stress has increased my size. Eating habits are same. Yet I’m heavier. Decided to try the body flex breathing again. I do 10 minutes in the morning. 10 days later and I’m fitting in my size 10 pants I haven’t worn in 4 years. Breathing and stretching has also helped with my lower back pain. Thinking back to when I first used to do body flex regularly, i maintained 7 and loved it.
    Looking forward to kicking my muffin top to the curb. I feel energized. And all from home. When I felt better. I did more.
    Bringing back my hour glass figure. To reiterate my eating habits are good. And I gained weight due to all the stress I’ve dealt with. Cortisol levels has shot through the roof. Weight gain added to the stress, deaths of loved ones, too many to count. Struggle to understand why I was getting bigger when I’m eating healthy, supplemts etc. Starting this again and I feel firmer in the first week.

    Don’t care about the negative comments. Grateful to Greer and looking forward to my fitter looking me in weeks. Try it. You’ll be impressed with all the benefits.
