Bottom line
With the 5 Minute Shaper, you will have an effective total body workout, but contrary to what the manufacturer claims, you will not get convincing results with just 5 minutes of training per day.Nevertheless, unlike most fitness equipment. abdominals sold on the market (see AB Circle Pro), this 5 Minute Shaper, because it demands your cardiovascular system, will allow you to obtain results.Like the ProForm Ab Glider, we therefore recommend this device to people who want to lose weight, in addition to other exercises and a balanced diet. To see the full Ab Glider review, click here. As with all home sit-up machines, results will only be possible if this machine is used correctly and consistently, along with a balanced diet. This device is of course not a miracle product for weight loss, but by engaging the heart system, it burns more calories than a conventional abs machine.

When it comes to abs machines, we need to see if it can support your body and isolate the abs, if it is comfortable for a wide range of users, and if it is sustainably built and effective. The ProForm Ab Glider Sport does well in all of these areas, but those strengths come at a high price.What this machine does better than the rest: It supports up to 130kg and if you have need something this solid, this is one of the best options. The double action in order to work all the abdominal belt (not just the crunch) and the cardiovascular system is another advantage.

Only the price could ultimately be a drag, but overall the value for money is good for what the Ab Glider offers.
Without a doubt, the Ab Coaster is a great piece of equipment to buy and add to your training equipment kit. If you get down to work and reduce your calories to 250-300 each day regularly, you will get results. But before opening your wallet, make sure you have enough space to accommodate this device and make sure you will use it regularly.
