Ab Fab


The scenario: It’s literally weeks away from swimsuit season. But instead of breaking out sweat on an intensive new workout at the gym, you’re stuck for hours in the office working out those deadlines instead. 

The good news: Luckily, a breakthrough product may just be the help you need to get beach-ready abs in time. 

Whaaat?: Slendertone Flex delivers a complete abdominal workout to firm up the core muscles and flatten the tummy area. In a matter of 20minutes, you get the equivalent of a 120-situp workout. And with seven programs and 99 intensity levels to choose from, you can tailor your workout and train your muscles using a pace you are comfortable with.

For the ladies
Designed with the modern and busy city denizen in mind, Slendertone Flex may be worn under one’s clothing, helping consumers look and feel good while they lead their busy lives. Simply fasten the belt around your waist and let the toning begin.
For men
The beauty about Slendertone is that it targets not only the muscles you see, but also the ones difficult to reach using conventional exercise, particularly the transversus abdominus (the deepest part of the abdominal muscles that’s essential to a stable lower back). This is because its patented EMS technology mimics the body’s natural muscle movements. Signals are sent between three medical grade GelPads, reaching nerves that branch out to all three main ab muscles—the rectus, oblique, and transversus abdominus—causing deep, strengthening contractions and effectively working the entire core. As the signal strength increases, the nerves in turn cause your muscles to contract and relax naturally, delivering a complete workout to the ab muscles. This same EMS technology is prescribed in hospitals and clinics worldwide to strengthen and rehabilitate muscles so you can be confident that it works.

I attended the Slendertone Flex event upon the invitation of my friend Charmaine Palermo. I was glad I went as I was curious about the toning belt. It was also nice to catch up with friends who I haven't seen in ages!

According to Sue Lewis, Slendertone's Business Development Manager for Asia Pacific, to achieve best results: Wear the belt 30 minutes a day, five times a week, complement it with a proper diet, and expect toning and inch-loss in as little as eight weeks. 

I don't know how effective the Slendertone Flex belt is but I'm excited to try it because of these reasons:
  • It's U.S. FDA approved
  • Men's Health magazine's Lifestyle editor, Amador Madamba shared with me his experience with Sendertone Flex: "After using Slendertone for only 5 mins., I could feel my abs sore—like I did sit-ups!"
  • Slendertone Flex doesn't claim to be a "Slimming" belt but a "Toning" belt
  • After my second pregnancy, my tummy is still not back to its original form. Haay! I've been eating healthy and exercising, so I'm hoping Slendertone will finally do the trick and get my flat tummy back!
I am doing the Slendertone Flex challenge: 30 minutes a day, five times a week, for eight weeks! Will blog about the results after. Tune in!
