The Body Sculpture Ab Trimmer is an abdominal machine consisting of a frame with handles and a built-in headrest to reduce strain on the neck. This equipment allows you to work the abdominal belt in optimal comfort and more easily.
Ab Trimmer-type abdominal machines are now commonplace in gyms and are part of the basic fitness equipment in many homes. Among this wide range of products with similar characteristics sometimes it is difficult to choose the right product. We'll take a look at this Body Sculpture Brand Ab Trimmer device and see what it's worth.
The Body Sculpture Ab Trimmer is, like the Weider Crunch Trainer , a device to work the abdominals and the abdominal strap more easily. With its rounded frame, it accompanies you during your movements and allows you to tone and firm your abdominal muscles while providing support for the back and neck. It is equipped with a padded headrest to relieve stress and strain on your neck while exercising. Two handles placed on either side of the frame complement the whole and allow you to modify the grips and therefore the target areas. Multiple gripping zones are also available on this device in order to be able to vary positions and exercises. The grips are padded for more comfort. The grip and pivot areas are covered with a black foam rubber for comfort and this helps prevent slipping on smooth surfaces. Very easy to assemble and sufficiently robust, it comes with a user guide that helps you train more efficiently and get the most out of this Ab Trimmer.
Sold for € 45 , it is in the same price range as its main competitors.
First of all, once the device is received, we see that the packaging is correct. Easy to assemble, this item will not cause any problems at this level although the instructions could have been clearer. All the pieces fit together nicely. The headrest is held in place by two allen screws.
The first feeling when you see this device mounted is that it is well made and looks sturdy but is also quite bulky.
We tested this product over a period of six weeks. We found the exercises useful, although fairly easy to perform. It also comes with a fairly basic but effective manual on how to use it for maximum benefit. There are also a number of variations on the net. When it comes to comfort, this product offers a "working" position. pleasant and good head support. It's well balanced, has a great fit, and it appears to be tough enough for people of all builds and sizes even with regular use. The headrest is not the most comfortable, however, and you can end up with neck and shoulder pain (painful after sessions) even after light use. We thought it was due to improper use but the pain was persistent even when following the instructions carefully. So be careful when using. In addition, we can regret the absence of a carpet. Indeed, unlike most abdominal machines of this type on the market, no support is provided with this Ab Trimmer. We advise you to add one for optimum comfort. The original Ab roller had small feet to increase stability. This product does not have this element. We would also have liked a counter to keep track of the number of crunches performed and the calories burned (available on another model of the brand).
The AB Trimmer, because of its shape, makes it easier to use and allows you to build muscle without straining too much. When used correctly, it works and targets the abs and core straps well. After a few crunches, you will start to feel a burn, proof of its effectiveness. The instructions are of high quality and will allow you to get the most out of this device, but as we said before, the instructions are basic and the shape of the headrest can cause pain in the neck. Be careful, however, of the range of the device. While it's good for working your abs and core, used on its own won't help you lose weight. As with all abdominal machines, it is necessary to perform cardio-type exercises and eat a healthy diet.
Build Quality / Durability
The Body Sculpture Ab Trimmer Son is an entry level product and it shows on the overall quality. The materials could be of better quality and the screws constantly need tightening, even after minimal use. Eventually, the rubbers start to wear off (with repeated use). It is still quite sturdy unlike the ones you see in local gyms which are always on the verge of collapse.
Storage / Dimensions
This device is rather bulky, and it is not foldable like a Weider Crunch Trainer by example. So this is a negative point for those who do not have a lot of space at home.
Easy to use
Ask for abs
Sometimes annoying headrest
Does not allow weight loss
No carpet provided
The Body Sculpture Ab Trimmer is generally a product as described. It does what it says, that is to say, it makes crunches more easily and works the abdominal belt more easily.
Lightweight, quite robust, authentic and easy to assemble, it is a useful piece of equipment in addition to a training program.The Ab Trimmer is therefore a product with an interesting value for money, we can however regret the lack of mat and the fact that it is not foldable. therefore recommended if you have room to store it, otherwise prefer a foldable model.
