Rate this product

Flex Core 8 is a compact fitness device that you can use to tone your entire body while burning fat and calories, which will result in a loss of inches around the midsection and elsewhere. You'll be able to use the device to complete nine different exercises, including sit-ups, push-ups, bridge poses, scissor kicks, forward presses, upright crunches, tricep push-downs, abdominal tucks, and cardio cycling. An exercise DVD and a printed exercise guide come with each Flex Core 8 apparatus to help you get started.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Flex Core 8 is $59.99 plus $12.99 shipping, for a total price of $72.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Flex Core 8 being discontinued. Flex Core 8 may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How It Works

Each Flex Core 8 device can be set, via each of its two individual arms, to offer either resistance or assistance for your body to take on as you work out. Supportive assistance will come in handy as you go through the three exercises during which gravity will work against you: push-ups, sit-ups, and bridge poses. On the other hand, you'll want to set a certain level of resistance when completing the other six exercises that don't require movement against the forces of gravity. If you get stronger and want to increase the resistance offered, or you need more assistance on one day than another, you'll be able to change your device's resistance or assistance level in seconds.


  • Durable

    Flex Core 8 is made of heavy-gauge steel of a similar quality as that used to make machines for a gym or fitness center. Hence, it's unlikely that your device will break easily, even if you use it on a daily basis for years.

  • Compact and Portable

    This round device has about the same diameter as a large beach ball, and its arms will fold flat against its base, so you likely won't have difficulty carrying it anywhere, even outside the home. If you have to go on a business trip or are leaving on a vacation, you may want to take it along with you so you can work out in your hotel room. The fact that it'll fold up also means that it can be stored virtually anywhere, such as under a bed, in a closet, or in a drawer.

  • Padded Handles

    Each arm of the Flex Core 8 has padded handles, so your hands won't get red and sore as you grip them.

  • Comes With Extras

    Besides getting a fitness DVD and a printed guide along with your device, you'll also receive a 21-day meal plan that'll help you eat well and achieve even better results than you would otherwise.

Positive Points

  • For All Ages/genders

    Men and women of any age will be able to reap the benefits of Flex Core 8, as it hasn't been designed for any particular age group or gender over another.

  • Beginner and Advanced Options

    Due to the adjustable resistance and assistance levels this device provides, both fitness beginners and serious athletes will be able to customize it to suit specific workout needs. Of course, you may start out by using the lowest levels of resistance and then work your way up to higher ones as you become more fit.

  • Ideal for Baby Weight Loss

    Women who have recently given birth and have packed on some pounds during the pregnancy may find this device incredibly useful, as it'll allow one to work out while staying at home with a baby.

  • May Increase Confidence

    As you use this device and get rid of body flaws such as love handles, saddlebags, and sagging underarm skin, you may start to feel more confident while you're out in public. This increased confidence, along with your new and improved look, may bring you more professional and / or romantic opportunities.

Save Money

By using Flex Core 8, you'll eliminate the need for a gym membership, as you'll be able to use this one device to work all the muscles people normally work by using their gym's machines.

I have something to say!

Spring Snapped Very Early

Left side spring snapped shortly after using. Spring holds tension via a plastic threat 20mm long. If your spring doesn't snap, then this plastic part will be next. Just terrible and of course the website for any resolution is no long in operation.
