I was recently sent a Flex Belt Ab Toner, which is the first ab toner cleared by the FDA for toning, firming, and strengthening the muscles in your stomach. Overall, i’m quite impressed with it. When the item arrived, the belt, 3 gel packs (one for each your left, center, and right stomach muscles), a recharging station, a belt extension which i didn’t use, and of course the instruction manual, which you won’t need to use much (except for your first time) because it’s pretty straight forward.
I’ve used the Flex Belt for over a month now and although I don’t quite yet have a six pack, I can definitely feel and see a difference. This nice thing about the Flex Belt is that you can wear it and exercise your abs regardless of what you are doing. It doesn’t take an extra 30 minutes out of your day! For example, I use it at work or while typing up a BerryRipe.com blog recipe or article.
How does it work you may ask? You simply put the belt on, select your setting and it does the work for you using EMS (Electric Muscle Stimulation). That’s right, it essentially shocks your muscles, but not in a discomforting way. It creates comfortable contractions through pulses that targets all of your muscles simultaneously for an effective workout in just 30 minutes. My abs got really tight during the pulse and then calm once the pulse ends only to have them get tight again 7 seconds later. It gets addicting! The picture on the right illustrates how your muscles are worked during your workout. You can see from the heat map that all the muscles are being targeted, including your abs.
BerryRipe readers can purchase the Flex Belt for $199.99 and it comes with a 60 day money back guarantee. Essentially, if you aren’t happy with the product or the results after 4-8 weeks, you can send the item back for a full refund. Outside of the 60 day money back guarantee, it comes with a 2 year warranty in case the product should stop working. You will also get a meal planner and a subscription to Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, or Travel & Leisure included with your purchase. I also recommend you get a second set of gel packs. I’ve been using my Flex Belt for about a month and within the next couple weeks, I’ll probably want to switch to new pads because the existing ones aren’t as sticky anymore and don’t adhere to my body as well as when I first started. If you have any questions about my experience with the Flex Belt before you decide whether or not to try it for yourself, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected].
