Okay, so I’ve had a lot of questions regarding the Flex Belt and whether it actually works as an “ab toner”. Since I bought this device recently, I decided to put up a comprehensive Flex Belt review to help all you folks interested in buying it. In order to make this review as helpful (and balanced) as possible I’ve included both other peoples’ reviews and my own personal thoughts on this product.
If you’re seriously considering buying this product, this article will give you all the info you need to make an informed decision. Plus, as always, I’ve done a bit of research on where to buy this product, and have included the best place (in my opinion) to get the Flex Belt online.
* UPDATE 24/02/2014: I have included a special link at the bottom of this article which directs you to a special discount on the Flex Belt if you’re interested in getting it.
About the Flex Belt
The Flex Belt is an electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) device that focuses on your abdominal muscles. You strap it around your stomach, turn it on, and it sends electronic pulses to your ab muscles, thus forcing them to contract and expand. After about 30 – 40 minutes of using the belt, you abs will have experienced over one hundred contractions, thus allowing them to build muscle. After several weeks, you ab muscles will supposedly have a more toned look.
The Flex Belt is endorsed by a number of celebrities/professionals, including football player Jerry Rice, Miss Universe Jill Wade, and a number of doctors and fitness professionals. It is also FDA approved, so the Flex Belt seems to have the best track record out of all the other ab belts on the market.
But let’s look at what the average joe has to say about the Flex Belt.
The first day I used the Flex Belt, I decided to put it on while I was getting work done on the computer. So I adjusted the straps, slipped it on, and turned it to its medium setting. Immediately, I felt it getting to work, working out my abs with electric pulses.
It was initially a very weird sensation, as I wasn’t used to such a feeling in my abs. It wasn’t painful, but I was definitely aware there was something attached to my body forcing my muscles to move. After a while I was able to mostly ignore the feeling and get some work done.
For some people this might be a slightly uncomfortable feeling. But for me it beats doing a hundred crunches in one sitting!
After about four weeks using the Flex Belt, it was time to see its long-term results.
I used it four times a week for about 30-45 minutes each session. During this time I also ensured I got in some regular exercise and ate properly (which the company recommend to get the best results). And after a month, I noticed that my abs were noticeably more pronounced. Not only did my core feel much stronger, but the muscles in my abs had clearly grown in size a bit. Now its still pretty early to come to definitive conclusion, but I would say that the Flex Belt does indeed work and can help you get closer to achieving a six pack.
I’m looking forward to seeing what my results are going to be like after another month of use.
In the interest of being as comprehensive as possible, I also did extensive research on what others are saying about the Flex Belt. Overall, feedback seems to be generally positive, and most people that used this product properly (in addition to proper diet and exercise) were able to achieve noticeably more defined abs.
Below are some excerpts from reviews I came across (from a variety of different sources).
“I have been using it since early March and so many people have told me that I look a lot thinner (I am a new mom and had a C-section) but with this belt it’s not so hard to take off the inches on your waist! Anyone that says it doesn’t work is probably eating cupcakes and pizza, and not working out…” Andrea D., Amazon.com
“The flex belt is fantastic. I have back problems and it is tightening my abs and relieving pressure on my spine. I feel healthier and look forward to my belt sessions. Try it. You have 6 wks to see if it works. I saw it working before then.” Donna Hearns
“I had my doubts about this product, but let me just say WOW. My abs HURT and after a few weeks I could see more definition in my stomach. Also their customer service is great. I had to buy replacement gel pads and they were very helpful and informative.” Jake, Amazon.com
“We’ve evaluated a number of abdominal products and the nice thing about The Flex Belt is people got results. The Flex Belt works all three muscle groups of the stomach simultaneously because the pads are located in the middle as well as the sides. Based on the studies we’ve done, there is no question that it is going to increase strength, firmness & tone people’s abdominal muscles.” John Porcari, PhD. Professor of Exercise and Sport Science, University of Wisconsin.
The Flex Belt works well in stimulating your ab muscles and promoting muscle growth. Most users report seeing results within a month of using the product. Individuals that incorporate proper exercise and diet in regular Flex Belt usage saw the most significant results.
This product is best for individuals that don’t always have time to dedicate to performing rigorous ab workouts. It can be used while performing other everyday activities and is very easy to use.If you’ve always wanted to achieve more toned abs, but don’t have time (or the will power) to do crunch workouts everyday, than the Flex Belt is exactly the product for you.
