I bought this device cause the reviews were fantastic, and the fact that it had any association with NASA really got my attention. In this Slendertone Corefit review, I will try to demystify any questions you may have about the device. I completely understand that this kind of product causes skepticism. In fact, I knew that so well when I made the purchase, that I didn’t tell a soul that I had it. I’m gonna tell you right now that it absolutely DOES work!
What’s great is that the technology and reputation of this company is time tested. I’m sure there are tons of knock-off ab belts, but Slendertone is the pioneer. Their products are cleared by the FDA and they have conducted various studies to prove it actually is an effective product. And the truth is, it really did create a noticeable difference for me.
But I want to stress right now, that I don’t believe everyone will benefit from this belt. If you have a lot of extra fat to lose, you won’t notice significant results. I’ll explain more about that later in this article. For now, here are the details.

Relatively In Shape? You’ll See Results
When I bought the Slendertone Corefit, I’d say my body was average. I worked out regularly. I was doing the P90X3 workout at the time. I’ve become obsessed with home workouts.
The Slendertone website says that 100% of its users reported that their abdominal muscles felt firmer after 6 weeks of use. This study was done by the University of Wisconsin LaCrosse School of Exercise & Sports Science.
The thing is, using this belt will feel very similar to doing an ab workout, because that’s exactly what it is doing. The only difference is you’re not doing the work yourself. A machine is strapped around your midsection doing it for you.
When I was using it, it felt like hundreds of tiny little fists punching my midsection every few seconds. It starts, and then it stops. The technology that Slendertone has built into it literally replicates exercise. So, if you were doing an ab workout every day for 20 – 30 minutes, you’d feel a difference! Well, the same goes with this belt.
You Just Strap It On And It Works
The convenience of using the Slendertone Corefit is what makes it so addictive to use, ESPECIALLY after you start to notice your abs showing definition. I believe I started seeing significant results after a few weeks of using it. And those results make you want to keep using it.
As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t tell anyone I even owned it, and I hid it under my bed when it wasn’t in use. I seriously didn’t want to be judged for being one of those people who buys those “as seen on TV” gimmicky ab-toning junk products.
What’s funny is, a friend actually said they could tell I’m doing a new workout for my abs. Oh man, I wanted to say SOMETHING, but I just kept quiet. I did finally admit a few months later that I wasn’t doing ANY ab workouts. The definition they were seeing came from this belt.
You do have to set it up properly, but it’s very easy. You charge the device via USB. You need to make sure to attach the gel pads that come with it to the belt itself. Those gel pads somehow help conduct these currents that stimulate the nerve which in turn stimulates your muscles, which then contract up to 150 times within 30 minutes. Doing this 5 days a week will start to show you more definition in your abs.
The way I look at it is this is pretty much the same as doing crunches or another ab workout. You definitely feel it while you’re doing it and you feel sore afterward. But instead of actually doing the crunches, you’re simply wearing this crazy belt.
Functions Help You Progress
The Corefit is multi-functional, and the functions are really cool. In fact, I became slightly addicted to the feeling of a million little fists punching your stomach, and the ability to make them get more intense over time.
Let’s just start by talking about the functionality. There are 10 programs and 100 intensity levels per program. I’ve added a picture here so you can see the different levels and how the instruction manual explains them.
I started with the Initiation program, and worked my way up to “Expert”. I start at level 1 intensity each time I move up to the next program. By the time you get to expert level, your abs have gotten used to the intensity of the belt.
I guarantee you wouldn’t be able to do the expert level right away, cause you really have to work up to it. It’s intense! You feel it, and if you set the intensity range too high, you won’t be able to do very much except squint your eyes cause the next set of punches are coming!
This probably looks really weird in writing, which is why you just need to own one to really understand it. I’m trying to explain a sensation that I guess is difficult to get across, but hopefully it’s all making sense.
Skip It If You Have Lots Of Extra Fat To Lose
Yeah, this sort of sucks, but I have to get it out of the way. The Corefit isn’t going to benefit you if you have a lot of extra fat to lose. We ALL have ab muscles, regardless of how much we weigh and how much fat we have on our bodies. The less body fat we have, the easier it is to see the definition of our abs.
I’ve had some friends ask me which ab roller is best, cause they want to tone up their abs. And these friends had more than 20 pounds of fat to lose. An ab roller will strengthen your abs. So will the Corefit. But unless you burn that excess fat off your body first, you won’t notice the benefits of what this belt can offer. My suggestion is to start eating at a calorie deficit.
If you have too much fat surrounding your midsection, purchasing this ab belt will be a disappointment, because you won’t get the results you want.
Overall Fantastic Product
I absolutely love it. If you’re on a journey to get into shape and you have some toning up to do, I have no doubt this belt will work for you, and you will absolutely see a difference happening over the course of even the first few weeks. But wait until you hit the 6 week mark. It’s very motivating.
It IS a work out, and I know that may sound odd, cause you might be thinking, “it’s just a belt. How is that a work out?”. It’s a work out cause you’re feeling it. It’s not dreadful like doing an ab work out every day for 30 minutes. That would DEFINITELY suck. But it IS a work out. So, just know that.
The only reason I actually stopped using it in recent months is cause I have to buy new gel pads for it, AND cause I started a whole new work out and eating routine. I wanted to make sure to separate this Corefit from my new work out and eating plan. Otherwise I wouldn’t be able to distinguish which progress was coming from the belt and which progress was coming from my new eating and workout plan.
I’ve also got their arm product for biceps. I bought it after a few months of owning this cause I realized that wow, this company really created something pretty revolutionary, at least in my opinion.
Anyway, I hope this Slendertone Corefit review was helpful. If you have any questions, please leave them below and I’d be more than happy to help you out!
