Christina - Pretty Secrets

Setting up the belt is really easy took me about 10-15 minutes then I left it to charge for 3 hours. The 30 day challenge says to start with 40/40 but I started with 50/50 because I really wanted to feel more. It is an amazing feeling and at first feels very ticklish! From using the product for a week I do feel a difference – less bloated and a small difference in definition. Weekly pictures are being taken each Monday to check progress! After using the belt for a few days my abs really did hurt and felt like I had done a hard abs work out on them. When it is time to increase the level up to 80 at first it does hurt (not in a painful way) but you can really feel it and it is a shock at first but you get used to it. It is also really handy, you don’t have to sit there and use the belt doing nothing you can be doing some work, cooking dinner or watching tele! Read More...


Kelly Donegan - Bikini Brawn

I was thrilled to be sent the Slendetone belt just over two weeks ago, so that i could put slendertone to the test. After reading up on the technical side of the product, i was definitely impressed and eager to try it out.  I decided to follow the instructions, which might i add i rarely do with anything. They offer a very informative booklet that shows you how to use it, how it works and also the slendertone challenge. The Challenge is for thirty days, so i decided i would follow it to a tea. You must wear the belt five days a week for four weeks. I am currently coming into my third week of this plan. It is well known the only way to a perfect six pack and core is by eating a balanced, healthy diet. Read More...

Kayli Valenti - Lifestyle Blog

I was very excited to try this product out, they became very popular again and it is the must have product. I knew how it worked, and the "Quick start guide" was easy to understand. The feeling of the system when its on is very unique, its not sore at all and the intensity can be adjusted to what you prefer and how strong you want it. The aim is to increase the intensity with time. I think it feels like your belly is vibrating, or even making a wave motion. You  can go about your daily routine while wearing it. Read More...

- How do Slendertone abdominal toning belts work?

Slendertone’s Electronic Muscle Stimulation technology (EMS) uses a gentle current to contract your abdominal muscles, like you would naturally do with sit-ups. Plus, it also activates the most difficult to reach core muscles responsible for improving your shape.

Unlike many other products on the market, Slendertone works not just the Rectus Abdominus and Oblique muscles but also the difficult to activate Transversus Abdominus that is most effective in flattening your stomach. All your deep core and ab muscles get activated when using Slendertone Abs which shapes your waist and abs controlling your core strength and stability.

Slendertone EMS technology has been used for over 50 years in hospitals, clinics and physiotherapy practices around the world to strengthen and rehabilitate muscles:

Slendertone ab belt stimulation and nerves activated Slendertoner ab belt stimulation through pads Slendertone ab belt stimulation through pads and nerves

First, signals are sent between the 3 medical-grade GelPads™...

reaching the nerves that branch out to all three main abdominal muscles...

causing deep, strengthening contractions that will strengthen and tone your abdominal muscles.
