Flex Belt Overview

Alright, so it’s time for my no BS review of the Flex Belt. I’ve been posting here for a while, and I’ve written lots of overview posts of how I use it, what I think of the equipment and features, but a full review is long over do. Read my Flex Belt review to know it SCAM or not.

In a hurry ?

For those of you who don’t already know this device is manufactured by Slendertone and is very similar to the Slendertone System Abs. From what the official site says the Flex Belt is the “high end” version of the system abs belt with more intensity levels (0-150 VS 0-99) and more programs (1-7 Vs 1-10) plus a few additional bonus items you get when you order direct from the official website (dieting software, magazine subscription etc.).

I don’t place much value in the magazine subscription or the dieting software. I know it’s what all the other ab belt companies are doing (ex: contour provides workout routine and dieting plan when you purchase their belt as well) but lets face it you’re either interested in leading a healthier lifestyle or your not. If you fall into the later then you can probably just stop reading this review right now because you’re not going to like what you’ll hear.

Flex Belt customer review

There are a couple of reasons why I like this abdominal belt over others that are available.

(Video) Police officer comforts little girl after she asks: 'Are you going to shoot us?' l GMA Digital

  • The first is that it is small and compact. You could get away with wearing this underneath a sweater if you wanted at work and no one would know it’s there.
  • The second reason is that it has a really sleek wired remote that also doubles as the rechargeable battery for this device (most EMS toning belts take AA or AAA batteries).
  • The third reason is because it offers a wide range of training options with 150 different intensity levels and 10 different workout programs. It’s just all around a more versatile and full featured ab belt compared to any other device available right now.

Is it Safe?What Does the EMS Feel Like?

The Flex Belt is FDA cleared for use as an abdominal stimulator, so this tells us that the FDA thinks its safe. However there are a few disclaimers that they like you to know about. Such as if you recently gave birth then you must wait a minimum of 6 weeks before starting to use the device and you should check with your doctor. If you had a caesarean in the last 3 months your doctor must approve use of the belt prior to starting on a program.

The sensation of EMS is like a slight buzzing or warm feeling. I personally don’t’ feel discomfort, but I can feel it working my abs, and on days where I really push the envelope with the intensity level I have a bit of soreness afterwards. However that’s a result from the workout in my opinion not serious side effect of EMS.

Does Flex Belt Work?

I know on their official website there’s a fancy video with a PhD talking about the clinical studies and trials that have been conducted on flexbelt. This is great, but lets talk real life scenario.

Without a doubt the Flex belt strengthens, tones and firms your ab muscles. My abs are stronger and firmer then they were when I started using the belt and just based on the fact that I started at intensity level 40 and am now working my way closer to 80 tells me that my abdominal endurance has increased. OK, so that’s all great but do I have a flatter stomach? Well I think so yes, however I don’t 100% attribute that to the abdominal toning belt. You see the Flex Belt doesn’t burn belly fat it strengthens and tones muscles. That’s only one part of the six pack abs flat stomach equation.

The Weight Loss Equation

The other half of the equation is diet and exercise. So if you’re a pretty thin person already chances are you’ll see some visual results in a few weeks without doing too much else. However if you carry a bit of weight around your stomach (don’t feel bad like 99% of us do too) then you’re going to need to do a bit more for yourself then just wear the toning belt every day.

Get out and start walking, jogging, bike riding or swimming. Something that will burn more calories for yourself then you would normally just sitting at your desk all day. Also cut out the soda pop and snacks. Replace that with water and fruits or veggies. Trust me on this. I know dieting sucks, but this small change can make a big difference. How? Well soda and snack foods are about the most calorie dense foods we eat. Water and fruits are not and they offer a ton of other great things our body needs. This small change will reduce your caloric intake and likely cause you to drop some water weight if you haven’t been drinking 6-10 glasses of water each day. The cardio exercise will burn extra calories, so the equation goes something like this

Reduce the calories your eating now + burn more calories with cardio exercise = calorie deficit each day so you lose some weight

Now this is’nt the perfect science of it all, but it’s the basic idea. If you’re getting out and being active, not eating a bunch of crap, watching your portion sizes at meal time and not snacking on junk food you’re gonna do good with this.

Flex Belt before and after

Here’s some images from users who used flex belt a time.

What are the intensity levels likeWhat are the programs like

Increasing the Intensity level on the right side only to 26

The intensity level in the belt is increased and decreased using two up & down arrow bottoms on the front of the remote. You can adjust the intensity on the right and left side of your belt independently of each other. I always kept the exact same intensity level on both sides to ensure I was giving my abs an even workout each session.

When I first started I began just under intensity level 40 and increased it every few days. I wasn’t too sure how I would feel after the workout at first so I was hesitant to just jack the intensity, however I quickly moved up to 70 and beyond after a couple of weeks. The intensity level you feel comfortable with is going to vary from person to person. The important thing is that you try and always workout on the highest intensity level you feel comfortable with. This ensures you’re getting the most effective workout each time.

While I haven’t broken the 100 level barrier yet, it’s nice to know that I’m only a little over half way through the potential power the belt offers. So there is still lots of room for improvement and results as I continue to use the Flex Belt.

Programs basically are different variations of how the EMS turns on and off and for how long. So for example in the Beginner program the EMS turns on for 2-3 seconds and then turns off for a about the same time. This continues for the full 20 minutes. As you progress different patterns are used for how long the EMS is turned on and off and for how how strong an intensity is used. The higher programs work your mid section harder not only by being a more intense workout but also varying how the EMS flexes your abs.

Each program includes a warm up and cool down phase. The warm up prepares your muscles for the main part of the session and the cool down will relax your muscles prior to completing your session.

Here’s the details on the programs that are included with the belt:

When you first take your belt out of the box it’s set to program #1, Beginner. The belt will automatically progress through the different programs up to program #6. To access programs 7, 8, 9 and 10 you must manually select them using the program button on the remote.

The toning power column references how effective the muscle workout is during that program. The higher the value the more effective the workout.

With each program you manually set the intensity level and you can also adjust the intensity level through out the session (you cannot change programs once you start, you must shut the belt off and choose a new program).

Personally I’ve gone through the first 6 programs. I’m now using program #7 and am going to bum up to “ab power” which is program #8 next week.

Flex Belt Pros & Cons

Flex Belt Price

I like The Flex Belt, in my opinion if you’re going to own an ab belt, this is the one to have. I like it because it’s concealable under clothing, has a rechargeable battery, has 150 intensity levels, 10 workout programs and more.

The price on FlexBelt is a bit more then the competition yes (around $200 regular price) but I’ve got a couple of coupons you can use to reduce the price so that helps.

What really matters as to whether you should or shouldn’t buy this device is if you’re prepared to put the work in or not. Are you going to use it 5 days a week? Are you willing to make the lifestyle changes to reach your maximum potential results? If you answer yes to this then I say get it! They’ve got a 60 day guarantee on this thing so if you’re not absolutely amazed with it you can send it back and request your money back in the first 60 days.

    I would like the coupons. I have a three level fusion L3-S1 and am 6 months post-op. I am still under restrictions of no bending, lifting or twisting. I’m now on long term disability, so being conservative with my money is an understatement!

    Please, any assistance in keeping the cost down is greatly appreciated.

    • Flex Belt SCAM Reviews 2020 - SHOCKING Facts (15)Dawn Stewart says

      i’ve been using the product for about 2 weeks consistantly (twice a day) and there is considerable difference. I do already eat healthy and work out at a gym, but had plateaued. I had lost over 225 lbs and still didn’t like the look of my abdomen…a little saggy. But this product has already earned it’s cost. I can’t wait to see the results after a month or two. My dad is using the flexbelt mini to strengthen his legs/butt. He had a stroke in 2015, partial hip replacement in September of last year and double knee replacement December 30th. This left his legs/butt so weak he would struggle to stand and half the time fail to stand straight up. 1 1/2 months of physical therapy didn’t do much for him, and he was to the point of giving up on walking anymore. His doctor was regretting the double knee surgery. I bought the flexbelt mini as a last ditch effort. 5 days of using the product and he can stand without struggling. He’s been walking quite a bit with a walker and has hope again. Went to the doctor for a follow up and the doctor couldn’t stop smiling – was completely blown away by the result. Can’t give enough thank yous to this company for designing this product. My dad’s journey is still a long one, but at least he’s moving in the right direction again.
