How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Fold Out Machine

    Once you have a Side Shaper in your possession, unfold it and set it up on a flat surface in your home. If you're concerned about its base damaging your flooring, place it on a yoga mat or a similar type of exercise mat instead of directly on the floor. When it's folded out correctly, the arm handles should be in the uppermost position like bike handlebars, while the two cylindrical pieces of the base should be resting parallel to each other on the floor.

  2. Adjust Settings

    Next, consult your instruction manual to find out exactly how to choose and set up an incline setting (easy, medium, or hard) and a resistance setting (also a choice between three options). If you aren't sure which settings to use, go with the easiest incline setting and the easiest resistance setting by default, and work your way up from there if you want more of a challenge.

  3. Mount Machine

    After you've set up your machine to suit your preferences, mount it with bare feet or athletic shoes on—not fashion footwear or socks, for safety's sake. Hang onto the handles with your hands, place your arms on the armrests, and place your knees between the two pieces of leg padding on each side of the machine.

  4. Start Crunching

    To get started with your crunches, begin moving your knees toward your chest and arms in a straight line. The machine will help you make this motion smooth and fluid, instead of jerky and potentially painful like it may be if you were to do it on the floor. Besides bringing up your knees in a straight line, you can also bring them up to the left or right to work your obliques on both sides. Complete five minutes of reverse crunches, or if you can't handle that many yet, as many as you comfortably can.

  5. Fold Up Machine

    When you're done your workout, dismount your machine by placing each leg on the floor (one at a time) and then either leave the machine in place or fold it up for storage.

How It Works

Doing abdominal exercises such as crunches or sit-ups can be painful when you complete them on hard flooring. People doing these exercises on the floor tend to jerk their bodies up and down, hitting the floor roughly between repetitions. Plus, without a machine to align your body properly, you may do your exercises in a position that could lead to strain or injury. However, if you do reverse crunches with the Side Shaper, it'll keep you suspended off the ground in an ideal position and guide your legs smoothly through each crunching movement, reducing the likelihood of pain.


  • For All Fitness Levels

    The Side Shaper has been created for adults of a wide variety of ages and fitness levels. Teens who are already adult-sized or close to being adult-sized should also be able to use this type of machine. If your fitness level changes or you're sharing your machine with someone of a different fitness level, the incline and resistance settings can be altered in a minute or so. On different days, depending on how you feel, you may want to work your body at an easier level or a harder one.

  • Lots Of Padding

    Within each machine, there is a pad on each side for users to rest their arms upon and two pads on which users should rest their legs. This padding will help keep you comfortable as you exercise by stopping your muscles and joints from bumping roughly against the metal used to craft each machine.

  • Heart Rate Monitor

    When you place your hands on the handles of your Side Shaper, you'll gain access to its built-in heart rate monitor. With that, you'll be able to look at your own heart rate and see if you could work a little harder or if you should dial your effort down a bit. The heart rate monitor won't show you your results unless your hands are on the handles, but if you remove them and then put them back, it'll give you results again.

  • Folds Flat

    This machine will fold up flat when you're not using it, and if you decide to fold it up, you can slide it under a couch, a bed, or an office desk. Folding it up and sliding it under a piece of furniture can save you space in whatever room or area you regularly use the machine in. Depending on the size of your vehicle, you might also be able to fold up the machine to transport it to an alternative location, like your cottage.

Positive Points

  • Promotes Attractiveness

    Your Side Shaper will enable you to burn fat and calories while toning your upper abdominals, lower abdominals, and obliques at the same time. Once you start doing so, you may notice that your body looks more attractive in as little as two weeks. Even if you don't lose pounds on the scale, your waistline should shrink in inches, and your clothes will likely fit you better. As you work your abdominals, your machine will also help you work your back, arms, and glutes along with the abs.

  • No Gym Required

    If you want to start a fun and effective exercise program but you're not interested in going to a gym, the Side Shaper will bring you gym-like results at home. In fact, since this machine doesn't need electricity to operate properly, you'll be able to use it virtually anywhere you'd like, including outside. Just make sure it's resting on a flat surface, no matter where you use it, and that you're wearing comfortable, loose clothing and bare feet or athletic shoes.

Critical Advice

When you start a Side Shaper exercise program, it's assumed that you'll also follow a healthy diet along with it. If you were to overeat or eat lots of junk food while beginning the program, you might not see results in two weeks or any results at all. Therefore, you must keep your diet in mind alongside your five minutes per day on your machine, and for optimum results, engage in other fun types of exercise every time you get the opportunity, too.
