Ab Coaster Review

Like many people out there, my new year resolution is to eat better and exercise more. I’m not a big person so my goal is not to loose weight but more like toning and live a healthier lifestyle. I work near a track so walking at lunch time is not a problem, it takes less than 5 minutes to get there. My GI Joe sister came down on New Year’s Day to Tum Boun (merit making) for my mom, and she looks so fit, she is the third on the left. The photo was taken by Runee.

She purchased the Ab Coaster last year and really liked it.  I wasn’t sure if I want to buy it at first, very skeptical about the infomercial that is filled with super fit body builders. My GI Joe sister loves hers and I thought I would give it a try. I have it for almost 2 weeks now and so far it’s working out great for me.

What I like about the Ab Coaster is that I don’t have to do crunches on the floor anymore and it’s not hard on my back. Even though the target is on your ab but I think it works on your upper body, legs and thighs as well. I could feel the pain in the first week.  I also didn’t have to spend that much time on it, 10-15 minutes in the morning and again in the evening. I have plenty of places to put this in my house, but decided to leave it in the living room.  I figure if I see it, I’ll remember to work on it more often, also watching TV makes it easier to do the work out.  The Ab Coaster  is 50 inch long, 25 inch wide and 50 inch high, so it doesn’t take much room.

I have 5 pound weights on each side, it has a 20 pound weight plate capacity.

It has a counter that keeps track of how many you did. As of right now my goal is anywhere from 300-500 each time.

The seat is padded.

It has a freestyle seat movement, which you can glide side ways.

Like many exercise machines out there, you really have to work at it in order for it to do its job.  My thought is that the more you do it, the more you get the result and your money’s worth. This is mainly a review for my sisters, some are interested in buying now, and I bought mine from this website. I paid mine in full and it was shipped to my home in less than 7 days.

Huge breakfast, I know but it’s not mine. Bo made this for Lee this morning, and I’m practicing on shooting for my food photography assignment.

  1. Wow, the Ab Coaster, huh? That is some piece of equipment!

    I’ve been going to the gym regularly and yes, working on my abs. I read somewhere that drinking green tea is good for breaking down “belly fat” as well as eating lots of tofu.

    Mmm…the scrambled eggs and toast look sooooo good! Jeremy Aaron and Bia love scrambled eggs, and I am looking forward to enjoying a plate of scrambled eggs with them in 11 more days!

    • Hi Jeffrey, I would love to go to the gym but wouldn’t have enough time to stick with it. I think any kind of exercise is good as people become less and less active these days. I also read that green tea is good for you, but tofu is a challenge to cook imo. If not done right, you can easily turn something healthy into unhealthy. I like deep fried tofu, so that’s bad.

      Sounds like you are counting down the days, I’m sure Aon and the boys are also. 🙂

  2. Wow Nye that is a great new year resolution. It looks like more fun than doing regular crunches.

    I used to lift 5 lbs weight during the evenings but then lost interest. So much for working out. 🙂

    • Cambree, I have to get in shape before the garden season. Last year I was in so much pain, hopefully I’ll be in a better shape this year. 🙂

        • Cambree, I think I was out of shape last year and hope this year will be better. There’s plenty of outdoor project waiting for me. 🙂

    • seeharhed, I don’t normally do a new year resolution. I think committing to living a healthier lifestyle is not a bad thing, just remember no pain no gain. 🙂
