Does Ab Glider Work? We Have the Truth

by Kurt Mattice on December 20, 2012

Hey there! If you’re here to see if Ab Glider really works to get desirable abs then you’ve come to the right place. There are many innovations designed to help people get great abs. Unfortunately, not all of them work. Because of this I did some in depth research of the Ab Glider based on real customer reviews  to help figure out if this machine is worth investing in or just a potential eyesore that may simply sit unused in the corner of your room.

What Is Ab Glider?

The Ab Glider is a product of ProForm, a company renowned for manufacturing a number of innovative home fitness equipment. Talkshow host and TV personality Elisabeth Hasselbeck, popularly known as a co-host on the daytime talkshow The View, and is an endorser of this product said that “the Ab Glider is ideal for anybody who wants to get started on building their dream abs but doesn’t have that much free time to exercise.”

How It Works

The Ab Glider is a workout machine that utilizes a combination of two motions – the circular burn and the arc crunch that apparently keep your body in shape. According to its infomercial, it’s strategically designed to target your abs and obliques, and also lets you engage in a cardio workout that burns twice the calories than any other comparable machines.

Features and Uses

  • Equipped with dual motion training intended to burn the calorie twice per minute and achieves 44% more muscle activation.
  • 180 degree rotation track for a smooth lateral motion that locks in place for vertical motion.

I am sooo gonna try this! It looks fun and easy to use. I was contemplating on buying a home fitness machine but didn’t know which one to get. Thanks for this review.

I personally think it’s a smart idea to invest in a workout machine especially if you don’t have the time to go to the gym. This looks like an equipment that would give promising results and something you would enjoy even on your own.

It’s a great equipment! Before purchasing this product, I’ve read heaps of reviews to ensure I’m making the right decision. I’m glad I bought it. The DVDs are great tutorials too. I workout alone in the house but it feels like I’m with a group in the gym.

I wanted to give up on it when I started hurting on the knees. Anyways, I kept going and it took a couple of weeks until I finally got used to it. It doesn’t hurt anymore, I only feel my muscles hurt because they’re burning!
