I ordered this abs toning belt because I am as stingy as Scrooge McDuck and it was quarter of the price of others. I didn't expect too much but it's awesome. I have lost 4 stone recently (very easy, just get stood up at the alter) and had a baggy belly which is not an attractive feature in anyone, unless you're a sumo wrestler. I used the belt regularly and now have a stomach like Garth although have been left with boobs like spaniels ears. Oh well, you can't win them all. don't put it on too high a level initially or you will induce cramp. Also don't put it on your heart or you will put it into fibrillation and go grey and fall over and your brother will just stand there and wee himself laughing, or is that just me ? Anyway, it's fab. Just one thing, if you press the up and down button before a pulse commences it won't work, you have to wait, it's not broken.
