    Let's get to the main point first: The thing is doing wonders for my stomach after just two weeks. It works really well. It's fairly quiet as there is no motors. Also as long as you do it right and don't overwork your abs it is pretty low impact. The downsides are the price, I strongly suggest using Walmart's financing promotions to be able to afford this baby. It is worth the price no matter what but you can't beat 0% interest. Another downside is the weight and dimensions of the box (Not neccessarily the product!). It's 73 pounds all together which makes for a terrible time loading and unloading the sucker from the store to your truck, and yes you'll most likely need a truck or van. Once you get it where you want and unpackage the product, the weight goes down a fair bit. It's in five pieces and the most heavy one is about 40 pounds. It's the one with the seat attached. If you have problems with lifting, I'm pretty sure you can delegate this one. As far as putting it together goes, its not too bad. 5 pieces and all the nuts and bolts are already where they should be so its a matter of following the 5 step instruction, unscrewing some of the bolts and reconnecting them with the pieces that fit. Some of the pieces are a little hard to hold together if you're doing it by yourself so I recommend two people make it but I did manage to put it together by myself. The slight downside is there is a little bit of a learning curve. It takes some effort to figure out how to use the product effectively. My suggestion is to try the position that you think the video is talking about for 10 reps (there is a counter). If your stomach isn't tightening up, change your position slightly and try that for 10. It took me 3 slight position changes before figuring it out. One major upside - It works better than anything than I've ever seen and it's EASY. A few very easy to live with downsides that stop being downsides after one day. I"m pretty sure you won't regret buying this.

    Actually it coasts, but all kidding aside - I have one and ran across it at the WalMart site to see make sure it's not cheaper here - it's not. My first job was a Health Club instructor 30 years ago - played college ball...I am pretty obsessed with staying in shape. This is an absolute breakthrough product that is far superior to any core or ab machine to date for a couple of reasons: 1) It allows move sequencing and range of motion to target the greatest amount of core muscles compared to any other exercise. It sort of combines the hanging leg raise that all gymnasts and high level atheletes do exclusively with the standard crunch, but without stress strain and pressure on lower back (which by the way prevents the abs from being worked to failure) 2) It creates a slight decompression on the spine while in use, which actually helps the back. 3) There is lots of high level press and other excellent reviews to back mine up at their website. Including the 2008 FIBO award - an International fitness consortium that rates nearly ALL new products every year. Anyway - it is not often that a product of this caliber and innovation hits the market - I say "BUY"!!!

    I received this product about 2.5 weeks ago. It was very quickly shipped and easily put together (I was able to do it without my husband's help and with my 3 year old running around). Once assembled, I used it immediately with no problem. It is very easy and fun to use - even my 12 year old uses it just for kicks. That being said, you do "feel the burn" after a few reps. It even gets you breathing hard. I am 34, have a genetic tendency to gain around the middle, have gone through 2 pregnancies - and if that's not enough - both were c-section deliveries. No matter how much weight I lose, I always have the belly pooch. Sit ups on the floor are hard for me because I am a hygienist and we tend to have neck strain issues. I've tried everything through the years without success. This is my last option before a tummy tuck. I have used this about 10 times in the last 2.5 weeks. (The manual says to always skip a day in between sessions- so with my work out scedule - that's 3x/wk.) I do about 100 reps each time - 30 each side and 40 in the middle. It doesn't take long at all for this many reps and it doesn't hurt my neck. After each session, there is a noticeable difference. I am so excited about the results that I wish I could do it every day instead of skipping a day in between. I look forward to using my Ab Coaster. You do have to work on form..finding the right position, speed and number of reps for you. I still get sore after the sessions - so I know it's working. My clothes are already fitting better and my husband can definately tell a difference. It's very pricey for me, but it works - so it's worth it. I figure - it's cheaper (and safer) than surgery. So far, I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone wanting a firmer tummy.

    Yes, you're right...it's expensive. That being said, it also WORKS!!!! I am loving my results that I'm getting from this machine! I DO recommend watching the instructional video clips on youtube, as they seem better than the one I received with the machine. I use it for just a few minutes about every other day and am getting results! They say you're supposed to "rest" your muscles every other day, but I think I'm going to try using it more often. I don't do a HUGE workout on it, just a few minutes...I also do Kettlenetics for overall fitness, but this machine BLASTS all the other kinds of ab workouts, I think! I LOVE IT!

    • A. The answer is no. The ab coaster does come with two little wheels to help you move it but it does not fold up. The ab coaster also takes up maybe 3 square feet of floor so it's already stored quite well.
