We don’t help you burn fat or lose weight, but we do help you tone your abs and lose inches on your waistline
Whether it’s your New Year’s resolution or because you want to look and feel better, losing weight should always be a combination of eating cleaner, exercising more and staying motivated.
Often, seeing that difference in your body shape is all the motivation you need.
Slendertone does not replace a healthy diet or regular exercise routine but it does help firm your abs and flatten your tummy, helping you reshape your body.
Users in clinical trials enjoyed an average waistline reduction of 3.5cm from 8 weeks of training using our belts (Porcari, 2005).
We still recommend using our products as part of a healthy and holistic approach to life that goes far beyond the number on the bathroom scales.
Training the transversus abdominis is the key to a smaller waist
The transversus abdominis is the deepest core muscle. It’s shaped like a corset around the abdomen, so you can consider it the Spanx of your abs muscles.
Not only does a developed transversus abdominis help protect the back and joints during movement – it tightens the stomach muscles, which helps pull in the waistline.
This muscle is extremely difficult to target with conventional workouts and ab exercises like stomach crunches, planks and sit-ups.
How does Slendertone work?
Slendertone’s unique belt design is proven to target the transversus abdominis (Coghlan, 2008), plus the crucial rectus abdominis (more commonly called the six pack) and internal and external obliques.
The brain sends signals to the muscles, making them relax and contract during exercise or day-to-day activities like doing housework, pushing a trolley around the supermarket or sprinting to catch a bus.
Our innovative toners use electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to send signals directly to the muscles, making them contract and relax in the same way.
This allows you to enhance every gym and abs session, while their lightweight and slim design means that you can tone when you’re walking to work or even sitting at your desk.
