So let’s be honest, we all know the key to a toned, flat stomach is hard graft. Sit-ups, planks, crunches, reverse curls, oblique twists, the list goes on.
But what if there was a way to enhance all the hard work you are putting in? We can’t promise to give you washboard abs over night but there are some very nifty devices out there designed to deal with those stubborn fat deposits, allowing your honed abs to shine through.
The Wellbox is always top of our hotlist at CB towers due to the fact that it can be used from head to toe. This clever device uses Lipomassage to deal with the fat deposits that diet and exercise just won’t shift. Great for cellulite, it also works wonders on your mid-section thanks to roll heads that stimulate tissues to release localised and resistant fat. The treatment process also gives you smoother, more supple skin improving the appearance of your emerging six-pack!
The Tripollar POSE uses Radio Frequency technology to warm the layers of the skin. Fat layers warm more quickly than other layers of the skin so they can turn to liquid more quickly. This is then either metabolised or flushed away into the system, resulting in smaller fat cells. Another effect of the device is the production of collagen, which tightens and smoothes the skin over time, meaning those pesky fat cells can be held in more tightly to display that fantastic muscle tone underneath.
The Slendertone Premium Abs uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation to tone the muscles in your mid-section. EMS uses electrodes on the skin in direct proximity to the muscles you are working to contract and release muscles. The technology was originally used (and still is) to rehabilitate those with injuries but it has been proven to have great aesthetic effects as well. This Abs Belt is a wide belt worn directly on the skin which has 10 programmes, 7 of which are passive programmes requiring no physical activity and 3 of which are active meaning you use the belt to enhance your physical activity. It also has an amazing 150 intensity levels (we challenge you to endure the highest level!) which means it is suitable for a wide range of needs as well as being adaptable once you reach your desired ab-related goal.
