The AB Dance Fitness Center exercise bench is a home weight training machine. Its swing system stimulates your muscles with a pendulum motion to work the abs, thighs and hips. Compact and foldable, it will adapt to space constraints.
We are always surprised by the weird devices supposed to make you lose weight that are offered on home shopping shows and e-commerce sites.
So it's not without a certain negative a priori that we see the arrival of these new miracle products, as presented by Ab Dance. Why do they call this bench the Ab Dance? The question is worth asking, because obviously you cannot dance on this device. The answer may lie in the success and current craze for Zumba and other dance-oriented Fitness classes that the Ab Dance makers have decided to use to promote their product.
The Ab Dance, like the Ab Wave , is a compact fitness bench that consists of a padded seat that slides on a curved rail. Compact and foldable, it is perfectly suitable for home use. According to the manufacturer, 5 minutes of training with this Ab Dance is equivalent to 150 sit-ups. 2 movements are possible with this device: - Translation from left to right: allows to apply the obliques, the hips - Translation from front to back: allows to apply the abdominal belt, the thighs The maximum user weight for this device is 120 kg.
Offered in gray and orange, it is sold on home shopping and e-commerce sites for an amount of around € 40 (seen at 25 € on some sites).
This is a very skillful and proven marketing strategy that is used here by manufacturers of fitness equipment. They bombard us with useless machines (especially after the Christmas holidays) in addition to advertising, promising us wonders. In reality, the results are often less ideal. On the positive side, we can say that Ab Dance is fun and easy to use. It is also easy to assemble and its price is unbeatable. The use is therefore simple but very limited with only 2 possible exercises.
We feel that the muscles are "working" at the waist and abs and if we are very attentive, we can even feel the front of the thighs. If we stick to the exercises, then we could say that the device does what it says. But make no mistake, moderately putting on a few muscles won't help you lose weight.
Now let's talk about the negatives. The device is not of high quality (stapled seat fabric, rudimentary sliding system) and above all it is noisy. On the videos the extras slide back and forth very easily. But when you use it, you understand with just one movement that it won't be that way. It doesn't slide smoothly, make noise, the metal creaks and the seat squeaks and rubs on the rail. Depending on the exercise, the seat rubs more or less on the bearings and yet our tester was far from the maximum 120 kg supported by the device. So not very pleasant to watch TV at the same time, contrary to what the ads suggest. In addition to the disturbing noises, the stability is not there. Quite often, in fact, the bench wobbles during the movement.
We also found that there were a lot of products being returned for strength or design issues. So if the price is indeed very low, you have to ask yourself why. And the answer most certainly lies in the more than mediocre build quality. We are also surprised that these fitness and weight loss machines in that they have a weight limit that is ridiculously low considering that they are intended for overweight people who want to reduce their weight.
Easy to use
Not very useful
Does not allow weight loss
Only 2 exercises offered
If the quality of this Ab Dance is more than mediocre, the effectiveness is very limited, if not zero. The product is therefore in our eyes, just like the Ab Wave , uninteresting We can't say that this was a big disappointment as we had no expectations regarding this product. Looking at the demonstrations we suspect that it is obviously a gadget, like most of the fitness equipment currently offered in teleshopping programs.
We do not of course recommend this product which is in short unnecessary equipment and advise you not to waste your money buying it. If you want to sweat and burn calories, join a gym or invest in a pair of running shoes instead.
