Health Insider sits down with Delanie Lantigua who has made fantastic progress after using OctoMoves Flow Ropes at a low point in life.
We sat down with her to discuss how using flow ropes has improved her quality of life, both mentally and physically, and why she thinks everyone should give them a go.
She wants to share her story with others in the hope of inspiring them to pick up the ropes.
What is Flow Ropes, you might ask?
They are a form of exercise equipment that focuses on body movement and improving overall fitness and coordination.
Anyone can pick them up and give them a go, by making some basic patterns and shapes, they can start to see and feel results straight away.
They come in different shapes and sizes, depending on what your goals are, from losing weight to building muscle – there is a rope for you.
Could you give us a short introduction of yourself, and why you needed OctoMoves?
“My name is Delanie Lantigua, and back in August 2020 during the lockdown, I wasn’t happy with how I looked or felt.
I was isolated, avoiding both my friends and family.
I wanted to find something to help me stay in shape that was fun and engaging. So after some research, I stumbled across Octomoves and their Flow Ropes.
Flow Ropes were said to help both your mind and your body, with movements taking center stage. They helped me stay in shape and reduce my stress and anxiety.
I haven’t looked back since, and I’ve even started vlogging so that I can share my story and help others. This is my story.”
How did you find out about OctoMoves?
“I found out about Octomoves specifically from YouTube – I searched for ways to stay active during the lockdown and stumbled across them by chance. But I am so glad I found them.
In August 2020, I found myself unhappy with my weight. I was depressed and overwhelmed. Around that time, I tried dance videos and casual walking, anything I could find. But the weight wasn’t going anywhere.
So I bought myself a flow rope and started using it at any chance I got. It was challenging, but I loved how versatile it was. You could even learn tricks to keep it fun and productive.
I wanted to get outside more and more to use it and share it with my family. I noticed a change in myself; I spent more time with my family. So my sister inspired me to start blogging /vlogging my journey hoping that others may join me.
Not only did I lose weight, but I felt more creative. It has had so many positive effects on me.
Since then, I have tried to encourage other people to get involved and be inspired by my journey – my family and friends all use it too.”
Did you have any reservations about the product before purchasing it?
“Not really. I was in a place where I just needed something to inspire me. I knew I could not continue doing what I was doing because it made me unhappy.
Like any purchase, I just hoped it would deliver results or make me feel happy. So you can imagine how pleased I was given the outcome.
For as long as I can remember, I have always had excuses for why I couldn’t exercise. I think everyone does this. They create reasons why they cannot do something.
I was no different. Oh, I can’t do that today because I’m tired or won’t go to the gym because it might be busy. They are just barriers people put up to stop them from facing reality.
When you realize that these are just minor obstacles you can overcome, you will start to see a considerable change.
So no. The only reservations I had were about myself and whether I would use the products as much as I should.”
Why did you feel you needed a product like Flow Ropes?
“I wanted something that would get me into shape mainly, but also something that I didn’t hate to use.
I read that they can have an equally positive impact on your mind as they do on your body. And as I was in a negative headspace, this appealed to me.
The coordination and movements make you think like you’re exercising your mind as well as your body. It seemed to calm me down and take away that negative energy.
I searched for flowropes trending videos on YouTube and found a video from Rokas, who is the founder of OctoMoves, using flow ropes.
The ropes looked amazing, but I hadn’t been consistent with jump rope before because it’s a little hard on my joints due to my weight.”
What are the results you have seen since using the product?
“So far, the results have been nothing short of life-changing. It has helped clear up my anxiety, which was an unexpected positive.
But mainly, I have seen progress with my conditioning. I have so much more energy now, noticeably so.
My friends and family have been telling me how much more bubbly and energetic I seem, and even though I am doing this for myself – it is pleasing to hear that from the ones you love.
I feel looser in my body like I can move around more gracefully. As expected, there was some initial pain at the start, but I feel so good in my skin now.
The training and modules that come with the product have been perfect for me. They seem to understand that everyone’s body is different, and they have a range of exercises to help all.”
Would you recommend OctoMoves to others?
“Without a doubt, yes. I already have. When people can see such a clear and defined change in your persona, it is easy to suggest they try the same.
The quality and authenticity of the ropes are brilliant. It feels like a quality product, and it is.
All the guides and exercises that come with it are excellent too. There is something for everyone to try. It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner or a seasoned veteran of the ropes – there will be something there for you.
I was so pleased with the ropes that I even started creating my vlog, detailing how they have helped turn my life around. I want others to see it so that they can learn and be inspired by my journey.”
Is there anything else you would like to share about your experience?
“The first few weeks of using OctoMoves, I felt very sore. I studied the tutorials to learn the basics, and I encountered some challenges. But overall, I had a great experience almost straight away.
What I love the most about OctoMoves is the passion and dedication of their team. They always respond so quickly to any questions or queries you might have.
They share our progress videos and put faith in us like we place trust in their products. It is motivating to have a team that cares about you and your health.

I just would like to add ropes that saved me from deep depression. I lived an isolated lifestyle and could barely leave my house.
The Flow Rope has made me so much happier in my skin, more confident, and willing to give the best of me. So thank you!
