When I was contacted to review a Flex Belt, I didn't hesitate to say yes. My husband has been wanting to try one for a while now, so I graciously let him try it first if he would allow me to take photos for the review. He agreed, but after seeing his results, I have to say that I wish I would have kept this one for myself!
If you haven't heard of the Flex Belt, it's the first belt cleared by the FDA to strengthen, tone, and firm the abdominal muscles. You wear the belt for about half an hour every day, and it works while you go about your daily business. You can work at a computer, clean the house, or even watch TV while it works, making it perfect for busy people.
How Does the Flex Belt Work?
The belt has three GelPads, which cover the external obliques and central abdominal muscles near your navel. The belt sends signals through the GelPads to your muscles, causing them contract and relax. Since it works all of your muscles at the same time, it only takes half an hour total each day.
The manufacturer recommends that you use the belt every day for four to eight weeks to see results. After that, you can use it twice a week. My husband started seeing results in about 2 weeks, but they were more noticeable in 4 weeks.
What Does the Flex Belt Feel Like?
Even though my husband was the one reviewing the belt, I did wear it once so I could see what it felt like. The belt has 150 intensity levels. The instructions say to adjust it to as high as you can without it hurting, so we started on 75, and he moved his up as time went on.
The belt itself is very comfortable. It's not heavy, and the material is soft. When I turned it on, I kept moving it higher until it started to tingle The belt sends a pulse a few times a minute, and the pulses last for several seconds.
The pulse feels like a tingle; kind of like a tickle. There's absolutely no pain at all. Since you work your way up with intensity and time, your muscles have time to adjust to the sensation.
After you take the belt off, your midsection feels like it got a slight workout, but I wasn't sore at all.
Does the Flex Belt Really Work?
See for yourself!
As you can see, my husband did see results after using the Flex Belt every day for a month.
The Flex Belt does work to tone your muscles, which makes your core muscles stronger. This helps improve posture, which also makes you look smaller. If you have abdominal fat, this device will not get rid of the fat. You will have to follow a diet program in order to lose the fat.
If you have a pace maker, you should not use this product.
