The first time I saw the Ab Circle Pro it was actually in the free weight section of my gym. I had no idea what it was and it looked a bit intimidating so I kept my eyes peeled to see if someone might jump on and give it a whirl. There is nothing more embarrassing than being in a gym filled with muscle heads and using fitness equipment the wrong way.
Once I saw it in action I was still not sure what body part it worked but it looked pretty silly. But, I did see the commercial on TV a few days later and was pretty shocked that something I saw on an infomercial would actually be in a gym I paid to go to. So I watched the commercial and saw this Jennifer Nicole Lee sing its praises and she was definitely nice to watch.
But hey, if it was in my gym it must do something good. The fact that I was interested in trying it after I found out it worked my abs was a miracle for me. I always skipped working abs because I never saw much result and it took a lot of effort. Eventually I found myself skipping them all together and focusing on my chest and arms. But, abs are really crucial and if I found an easier way to attack them, I’d probably get back into doing them. The ab circle was quite easy to use and didn’t hurt my back and neck like situps.
So here is what is supposed to happen. The machine will provide a very comfortable position for you to both, target your abs in multiple ways, and provide a pretty decent cardio workout due to the motion of the machine. It’s funny, because we have an entire room dedicated to ab machines in my gym and it’s the emptiest spot in the whole place. If they worked well, you’d think people would be packed in. But they are not.
The most intriguing thing about the ab circle was the fact that it was supposed to be easy. If I could get an ab workout that yielded just minor results, it would be worth it if it was easy to do. No Pain Plenty of Gain is not a bad motto. So when I went back to the gym I jumped on the thing and was not intimidated because I paid attention to the commercial. You can even find some nice Ab Circle Pro Videos online which show you exactly how to use the machine with confidence.
So what happens on the machine is pretty cool. Again it is very simple to use and your body’s own gravity sustains the momentum created by the swing motion. You can definitely feel something happening within about 20 seconds of use. But, even though the commercial shows people shrinking before our eyes, it is important to realize that this machine needs to be combined with a sensible diet and an overall body workout. It is not a miracle by any means but it does make working the mid section really easy compared to sit ups and crunches.
Keep in mind that I didn’t buy ab circle pro for my review. I simply used the one which was already at my gym. I cannot be sure it’s worth the money unless you seriously intend on using it.
