- Two Pads
It has two pads each of which work for thirty uses.
- Recharge at Home
Each pad is rechargeable via a USB drive.
- Push Button
The unit is push button operated with a fifteen minute auto shut off feature. Such an auto shut off prevents it from wearing out the batteries or causing too much harm if you forget you are wearing it or fall asleep with it on.
- Wear it Anywhere
Unlike normal EMS products, this is not a belt. Instead it is two pads that span the abs and can be placed on different parts of the abs and used to get good results. Wearing them means easily concealing your workouts at home or at work. You can recharge them when you are done using them, with nothing but a USB port. This makes it easy to keep your units charged and ready to go. By providing two with each order, you have the chance to charge one while wearing the other.
- Many Options
With so many options for settings, you can select whatever level of intensity you can handle, then work your way higher.
- Supported by Studies
Recent studies have looked into how effective these units are. These studies have uncovered that results are good for people who work out and change their diet. Electrical stimulation can decrease waist size, obesity of the abdomen, body fat percentage, and subcutaneous fat mass. This is especially true in women. Other studies show that it is helpful in increasing blood flow prior to working out, can help with pain management, and more.
- Change Lifestyle
Whether you want to avoid running, or you just want to be able to eat the same things you are eating now, bear in mind that a lot of effort goes in to looking great. More effort goes in to feeling great, and being healthy.
The biggest myth related to this thing is that with it on, you can just use it for days and get abs that look just like the healthy fitness models featured on the advertisements. When you fail to work on your body on the outside and with your diet, you will not get anywhere close to the results that are shown on the advertisements or on the commercials.
- Food and Exercise
In order for you to really get results from an ab toning unit, you have to do other things like eating correctly. Most people cannot get their abdominal muscles to show like those featured in advertisements simple because they have a layer of fat over the muscles. For you to get rid of that fat, you have to eat a better diet and work out regularly in conjunction with the item. Creating a calorie deficiency in the body forces it to start losing weight faster.
By dieting and increasing your cardiovascular workouts, you can get a better definition across the board. In particular, you get better definition on your abs. Bear in that in mind, it becomes clear that with this unit you get help improving your muscles, but not necessarily showing them off.
- Not With Implants
Do not use this device is you have any electronic device in your body or any implanted metallic device including an implanted defibrillator or a cardiac pacemaker. Use of these with those implants can lead to lethal rhythm disturbances in the heart.
- Not While Pregnant
The company makes clear that the safety of such stimulation during pregnancy has not been established, and as such it is best to avoid it while pregnant.
- Not on Wounds
Apply the stimulation to normal, clean skin. Never apply over swollen skin, inflamed areas, infected areas, or open wounds. This applies to thrombophlebitis, varicose veins, or phlebitis. Avoid apply near cancerous lesions.
- No Weight Loss and no Abs
The company states at the bottom of the site that the results they show are not typical. What’s more, the people who are shown as their models are people who participated in a reduced calorie diet in addition to a rigorous exercise plan. They did not rely upon this product alone. Participants only used it in conjunction with cardiovascular and full body workouts to enhance their results. Their website at the bottom specifically states that the Ab Toner will NOT cause weight loss nor will the Ab Toner give you well-defined abs.
Does It Really Work?
These stick on pads are designed to force your muscles to contract with electrical stimulation. In other words: it sits there and shocks your stomach. Theoretically this could help you get toned abs with time, but it is not nearly that simple. If you are obese or you do not train beyond using this unit, then you will not get results like those you want. Such things work to a degree, but they are only meant as an addition to your regular workout, not a replacement for hard work and exercise. Do not be fooled into believing that you can get fit without regular, lifelong work. Being fit takes effort, and that effort requires you to work hard on a regular basis, watch what you eat, and stay active.
What’s more, this is not a thing you can just do once, or for one week, and then be done with. You have to do it regularly. Think of it as a lifestyle change. Models shown using the things are those who subjected themselves to this lifestyle change. Said people also restricted their diet and did other exercises, as per the company requirements. Know deep down that unless you are willing to work out regularly and change your diet, this unit will not be a miracle worker.
How it's Different from Competitors
With electronic muscle stimulation, these pads disperse gentle electronic pulses against your body to stimulate the nerves. In stimulating the nerves, it causes the muscle fibers to contract and relax in your abdomen, similar to the way your muscles do this when exercising. Featuring six workout program settings, there are ten levels of intensity possible, each of which gives your body progressively harder shocks. Said shocks can increase the stimulation to your muscle fibers.
