When I was younger I remember my mother having something with little electrode pads she would attach around her body to hopefully "tighten" up those areas. She thought it was silly and that she wasted her money on it which she probably did now thinking back on the quality. Flex Belt® is actually a similar but much more advanced concept. "The Flex Belt® is the first Ab Belt Toning system cleared by the FDA for Toning, Firming and Strengthening the stomach muscles."
I've been asked if it shocks you or feels like you are being electrocuted Definitely not! The best part about the belt is that you can work at your own level and for the amount of time you are comfortable with. Kevin and I both have been using it for a couple weeks now. Kevin who is toned and muscular hasn't noticed much of a difference but I can definitely tell the next day after using it. My muscles are sore the next day and have that feel good workout feeling!
Its very interesting the differences we both have seen using this as well. I can turn the Flex Belt® up pretty high and actually have to have it higher to feel the difference. I can only assume this is because of how much fat I have in front of my ab muscles. Kevin on the other hand barely turns it half as high because it works his muscles so much easier.
I started three and a half weeks ago with no additional exercise except the dieting I've been discussing I feel much more tone especially in my trouble area that has seemed impossible for me to even notice a change.
Cost: $199.99 for 1 Flex Belt® (the more you buy the more of a discount you get)
$14.99 for 1 additional gel pad set (the more you buy the more of a discount you get)
Available to purchase: Flex Belt®
Recommendation: I cannot believe I am going to say this because of the high price but it is worth it. The Flex Belt helps you fit that little extra exercise into your already packed days without having to actually take the time out of your day. I wish it was a little cheaper though especially when you factor in the cost of replacing the gel pads. I don't see your average person in this economy being able to afford one.
