The Flex Belt review: Does this EMS abs stimulator work?

Overall score : 2.9

Although it won't make the belly fat go away on its own, it DOES provide a great abs workout. Many users have reported that the Flexbelt workout can be surprisingly intense and their abs appeared sore after using it on higher intensity levels. Overall, a decent product with more favorable reviews than negative ones. But, working only on the abs won't make the belly fat (that covers the abs) go away. We recommend using TheFlexBelt in combination with these Body weight exercises or TheBetaSwitch program.

We’ve done some research about the flex belt and overall it does appear to be a decent product and we’ve watched some review videos and one made it seem like if you got your stomach toned and you stopped deploying it, your abs would quickly start to look like they did before you began.

They claim that the key to building great abs is working the muscles as much as feasible, and with a toning belt such as the Flexbelt , you can have the added workouts done anywhere at any time.

Flex Belt stimulates the ab muscles and the good thing is there are a variety of Flex Belt workout programs you certainly can do to encourage abs toning and “muscle confusion” as doing different kinds of workouts causes better likelihood of losing weight.

Otherwise, usually what happens is whenever you do the same workout again and then more, your human anatomy gets accustomed to it fairly quickly and develops a opposition to the effects of workout.

Well, the Flex Belt works using a technology called EMS (Electric Muscle Stimulation), just put, it works by sending little electrical pulses through the body that contract and release the abdominal muscles many, many times.

The Flex Belt promotes all your major abdominal muscles at the same time supplying the perfect abdominal contraction, and working your upper & lower abs, along with your obliques to get an exceptional workout, without lifting a hand.

What to bear in mind

Most users definitely won’t be able to see abs even after using the Flex belt. A diligent regimen of bodybuilding exercises targeting the abs along with a sensible diet gets you there, but consider a muscular stimulation belt including the Flexbelt to improve your workouts.

To take full advantage of your Abdominal Toning Belt, ensure to always utilize Gel Pads that come with this. Medical-grade Gel Pads are latex free and each lasts from 20 to 30 sessions.

To get the absolute most from the device, the Instruction handbook recommends you follow a 30 day plan where you use the Belt 5 times a week for the first 4 weeks and record your highest strength level achieved during each workout.

You can use the exact same Flex Rechargeable Power Supply Unit that comes with your Flex Mini for the Flex Belt…so after you give the sofa and backs of thighs a good workout, you’ll placed on the Flex Belt and tone up those belly muscles.

In between ab belt days, do some high intensity fat burning exercise for 20-30 minutes to burn fat such as the Bodyweight burn or SpecForce Abs.

One good thing with this extendable Belt is the fact that it really is appropriate for both men and women and allows people of varying waist size to position the Gel Pads at the front end of the abdomen and oblique muscles, so when you’re using the device you’re contracting all the muscles at the centre and sides of your midsection simultaneously.


These belts make us feel tighter, but they will maybe not help you loose weight, most useful option to do this is training hard…interval training, or some high quality abs exercises or intermittent fasting, however in combination, they will tone muscle on show, but dont expect results without hard work..Life aint that simple.

Well the belt is not supposed to reduce waist size if you taken notice of the belts function and listened to the marketing pitch very closely, read the fine print etc. it’s to strengthen and tone not get ride of fat that you need to work off yourself.

One of the user reviews – “I’m 15 years old and have been using it for pretty much a year now and I also have acutely spectacular results I love it mightn’t be any more satisfied so the belt isn’t meant to get ride of your wist or belly fat would be to strengthen your actual muscle tissue and tone it(stronger or more solid)

Because the Flex Belt has ten different toning programs and 150 different intensity levels , it is a perfect option for individuals of all different fitness levels In fact, because the Flex Belt knows that the more people utilize it, the bigger they will desire their intensity levels and toning programs to be, Flex Belt comes with these programs already set in it, so it only takes a push of a button to start.

I do feel like my muscles are getting a little bit of tone, and they feel a bit tightened, much like they do after a good abs workout for a few days.

I use it twice a day for an hour each session five days a week and after I’m done I can feel my abdominal muscles getting sore from the workout.

Pat08: I had a flat stomach and everytime I would tell someone I needed to work out they would just make comments saying I dont need to. I bought the flex belt and now I can get the results I want without working out as much.

“I was very impressed with a powerful contraction The Flex Belt gave me. I train my abs hard and I can testify that if I increase the intensity to higher levels, even very fit people are going to be able to get a good ab workout.

D. Brown, Chicago, IL: I have lower-back problems and the flexbelt has helped me get the abs I always wanted without any strain on my back. Because of spine surgeries, I am not able to exercise the upper part of my body; so using the Flex Belt has given me great results around my waist and my glutes.

Deidre: I’ve been using the Flex Belt for about 4 months and it has been awesome….I used to have a contour belt (my husband purchased one as seen on t.v. and then I realized there’s even a Better one out after researching on the internet.) My stomach fat has ALWAYS been there and crunches Never work.
I was surprised at the intensity of the ab workout when using the belt; the first two days I used it my abs were pleasantly sore the next day.

Kristen G.: TESTIMONIAL: I have been using the Flex blet for approximately thirty-two days, and absolutley love it. The reason that I purchsed the flex belt becuase I wanted something that would work my abs for me without me having to spend hours doing thousnads of crunches and other ab exercises.
I actually really enjoy using the belt and was very surprised at how easy and comfortable it is. Each time I use it I can feel it working which is something I really like about it. I can tell that my abs have gotten much stronger from using it.

This product is great for anyone who wants an effective workout without having to take time out of your busy schedule to get it. I’m so glad that now I have some time to relax while I am still working out.

I love that I can effortlessly watch TV or be on the computer and still be getting an incredible workout.I wanted to try out The Flex Belt® because of its convenience.

I like wearing the belt and still being able to do things around the house or even sit and watch TV. I am almost at my toning goal but I will continue to use this product to make sure I maintain this great new body.

We’ve tried other abdominal stimulation devices and the thing I liked about the Flex Belt was right away when you put it on you can feel that you’re getting powerful muscular contractions but it’s comfortable to use.

Tom: I am actually on the Atkins diet and are kind of limited with exercise on phase one, the flex belt is perfect for me right now and even I am so pleased that I think even when I have more energy to work out I’ll keep using it. SO yeah diet is never a bad idea.

I would say in answer to the question about using it after you’ve had a baby that you definitely could-as a matter of fact, it felt very similar to contractions right before they got painful; maybe that’s why it works so well getting the waist back.
