The reason why the Flex Belt was made is because it is one way for busy people to compensate for not being able to spend much time exercising as they should. However, does this small piece of equipment really do the trick?
It does seem unbelievable to some people that it does work. Then again, these are not the type of people who work the desk and squeeze their buttocks all day either.
The Product Kit
Along with the Flex Belt arrives gels and pads, rechargeable power supply, and extension up to 44 inches. All of this is then packed by the user in a carrying case and instruction manual. It is a very portable system.
The idea behind using the Flex Belt is to help gain flat abs with as little effort as possible. It is like exercise for lazy people so to speak-or is it? It can be used by both women and men. The objective is to obtain rock hard abs in no time.
It could help people who have physical disabilities. It also could help senior citizens who have a hard time getting around. It can help mothers as well, at least after pregnancy.
This exercise device is very easy to use as well. All you need to do is strap it around your stomach. Therefore, it can be worn while you clean the house, sit at a desk, or walk your dog. It is meant for people who are too busy to go to the gym.
This exercise device and corresponding pieces and instructions can be taken anywhere. It is perfect for vacations even. It is one of few devices of its kind that has been approved by the FDA and carries the CE symbol.
It is not recommended for use during pregnancy. In fact, as the baby is closer to being delivered, it would not fit anyway. You have to wait six weeks if you are a new mother if you have just had a vaginal birth or you have to wait three months if you just had a C-section birth.
It may not fit two different people in exactly the same way. Usually one belt ordered per person is recommended in order for each user to get the full effect.
Also, realize that the main function of this product is toning the ab muscles. It is not really meant to be used as a fat burning device-though some may try.
While only using this belt 30 minutes a day it does provide a very effective abdominal workout. Supposedly, it is comparable to completing sessions of hundreds of sit-ups. These expected results (if they are experienced) materialize as the muscles of the abs expand and contract repeatedly.
One study that was done shows that users had experienced an increase in muscle strength by 49%. Furthermore, as far as stomach endurance, the increase percentage was 72% approximately. These results happened in just a few weeks for most users.
