I miss my old abs! I have been using the Flex Belt to assist in my daily workouts to get my abs back to how they used to be.
I have been in denial that my body has changed. Well, I have had a rude awakening and I am ready to get my body tight and right.
I have been using the Flex Belt for 6 weeks and am seeing some slight results. I say slight results, because the device is not a miracle device. It is toning, tightening and strengthening my abs along with a daily cardio workout and eating lean. This is definitely not a quick fix.
When I received my Flex Belt, I was eager to use it. I pulled it out of the boxy and realized, I have to read the instructions. Reading is not bad, but I was ready to put it to use. The instructions were easy, but of course I did have a couple of hiccups. This happened because I was in such a hurry to use my new Flex Belt. I needed to take my time and go over the contents etc. No problem….
My box contained the following:
- A belt that has been ergonocmically designed. That is designed for men and women. The belt has a pocket for holding your unit while you are using it.
- A unit that generates signals that are sent through the belt and pads to your muscles to make them contract.
- A unit connector that connects the unit to the toning belt.
- A pack of three adhesive pads
- The Flex Belt Battery Charger
- An Instruction Manual
- A quick start guide
The belt was a little big, but I was able to pull it far around to fit my size. After I placed the pads on the belt and then strapped the belt on I was surprised. The pads were a bit cold, but it is fine. You will quickly warm up. When placing the belt on make sure it is placed properly. After watching the startup video
I made sure I used the center pad as a guide as to were I was placing my belt. Both the videos on the site and the manual offer a lot of information. I refer back to both of them. Do not think you can just strap the belt on and voila
The first time I used the Flex Belt, I set my unit low as the instruction manual suggested. I immediately understood why because, the signals are were a little jolting. By the the third day I increased the settings. This is where I was a bit confused. I did not know there were different programs until I watched the programs and tips video. I did see it in the manual, but for some reason I a light bulb went off when I saw the video. I am sure I glanced over it during my excitement. I am currently using the expert programs. Let me just warn you, the intensity of these programs are powerful. My kids got a kick out of watching my stomach contract.
During the session I definitely feel the belt working my abs. It gets to be a little intense, but nothing I cannot handle. After completing a session I do not feel any pain or tightness.
I use the Flex Belt while sitting down. Cooking, cleaning or doing many other things around the house. When I have it on the expert level it is a little hard to move around sometimes, it is best for me to sit down and let the belt work it’s magic.
I have not taken it will I am on the go, but it is nice to know that I have that option. It comes with a a bag to keep the kit in.
Overall I really like the Flex Belt. But, this week, my belt seemed to be going a little softer and slower. I remember reading in the manual that this will occur if the pads are worn out or if the battery is low. I fully charged my battery and it seemed to help. Then two days later, the battery read low. I do not know if the pads have anything to do with the battery not staying charged. I do believe it is time to get new pads, but I am not sure what is going on with the battery. I question this because after charging the battery the first time it lasted at least 4 weeks before I had to recharge. I am going to charge it again to see if it works this time. Either way I am sure it is something that can be resolved. The people at Flex Belt stand by their product and they offer a warranty.
I am addicted to using the Flex Belt. I have to get new pads soon and figure out what is going on with my battery soon. The Flex Belt as an added bonus to my daily workouts. I have not eliminated crunches from my regimine. I am finding I am getting good results by incorporating this into my workouts and not just relying on it alone.
After 6 weeks, I am seeing some results. I can see the formation of what I call a 2 pack. I did not realize I had so much fat in my stomach. Slowly but surely, I will have a 4 pack. My abs are not where I want them to be, but I know that they will in due time. I will continue to use the Flex Belt.
Maybe one day when my abs are where I want them to be I will share before and after photos. Just maybe!!!
