Considering that there are too many abs equipment infomercials we see these days, have you thought about buying an ab machine? The Ab Circle Pro as most of us have seen it is actually one of the most common exercise equipments on TV that is heavily advertised. You probably have seen the sexy fitness model Jennifer Nicole Lee introducing to us how this machine works.
The Ab Circle Pro looks fine, actually. It looks great on Jennifer and you might think it would look good also on you especially if you can have the same toned abs like Jennifer’s. But do you think you can really get that Jennifer abs if you buy the machine and use it accordingly? Who knows, right? Well, here are the things I found about this popular ab equipment.
If you look through the many websites that promote the Ab Circle Pro, some of them offer 30 day free trial period and say you only pay less than $15 for that. Again, wow, this seems like a good deal that you can’t lose. But you think, there could be something fishy going on in here. So you read between the lines and there you find some surprises. With just the shipping you must pay $30 that non-refundable.
If you are not satisfied with the machine you have to ship it back to where it came from and of course pay the same amount like when you ordered it. Don’t expect the company to send anybody to pick it up from your house. So all in all, that would be about $80 including the trial fare and for just a cheap machine, obviously you can be at the losing end just for trying it.
So, let’s look at the advantages and disadvantages of this ab machine.
Basically, the Ab Circle Pro is designed for two purposes: cardio and abs workout. With hands and knees supporting your body and sliding yourself from side to side in gliding motion, this can really tire you and can give your side oblique the strain. As the machine promises to burn fats in your bellies and waist, you are supposed to have spot reductions in your target areas. The truth is that there is no spot reduction – you always burn fat in all your body, not in a specific spot.
Some users complained that this machine is not enough to sustain all the workouts you need to make your abs trimmer and harder. In short, the Ab Circle Pro cannot exactly provide what the gym abs machines can give you. Also, there are a lot of complaints about the quality of the Ab Circle Pro. So, does this mean the machine is a total scam? No, it’s not. But this is not a wonder machine that can do what it promises without also following a diet. Do regular intensive hard workouts as part of your training and that means full body weight training workouts which you can do either in the gym or with equipments at home. Then, eating right and getting enough fluid and sleep is the last requirement.
So, to sum up, the Ab Circle Pro Ab Machine CAN give your ab muscles a good workout – it will even work out your obliques. But its quality is not the best, so you probably should look for a better ab machine.
