Upon usage, the sensation is unique and very noticeable but not uncomfortable. It starts like the grumbling of having a big meal and ending with a tingly, targeting crunch. I did find that my entire core was utilized and that it felt as though I was doing a heavier, holding workout by the end of the program. I love the single unit, easy tuck-in remote and started at level 50 (of 150) but was to level 70 by the end of the first program. I could really feel that it contracted my bottom abs, as well as the top at the same time. What I dislike about this versus a typical at-home routine is that it doesn’t burn fat and, therefore, doesn’t uncover those hidden muscles if you’ve got a lot of flub to work through. I don’t, although I’m not in the best shape ever, but I would recommend doing some cardio along with using the Flex Belt in order to maximize results.
The biggest benefit would have been the fact that I could do whatever I was required to do as a mother, while also targeting an issue area and not having to get down on the floor to do it. Working my abs is nearly impossible with two little girls all over Mum at any given time so this allows me to squeeze in a bit of hidden “me time” during the day. I wore this for a solid hour around my children and had no little ones lifting my shirt, hopping on me or attempting to push buttons. For me, this was a great success and lead to me wanting to wear the belt more often. I also found that the belt targeted my obliques (aka my muffin top) far better than most exercises do and I find it incredibly effective in comparison to what I can do on my own.
For an easy, easily concealed way of squeezing in a bit of toning, it’s got my vote. I’ve taken a “before” photo and, if I notice some really drastic results, I will post the “after” along with it in 6 weeks.
Here’s to a New Year with Flex Belt!
