Slendertone Corefit Review – It Works!

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.


  • Product: Slendertone Corefit Ab Belt
  • Price: $100 – $140

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.

But I wanted to improve the look of my core, which just looked and felt soft. I personally believe this belt will show a significant difference for anyone who is already in decent shape.

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!

  1. Oh, I’ve been searching for something similar to this. So, this ‘ab building belt’ can work, but you need to burn the excess fat in order for it to work. I think it’s really neat, though I need to start weight loss training first before using any kind of this tool. Thanks for mentioning that crucial information, since many ads don’t mention that drawback.

    1. Thanks for the comment and yes, I’m really glad you see that I stress burning off excess fat BEFORE using this belt.  My best friend, before he lost 25 pounds recently, bought one of those ab rollers, which I HATE, cause they’re so hard to use!  But he learned quickly that he needed to burn off excess fat before seeing results from the ab roller.  I’d consider the Corefit to be a much more convenient way to work your abs than an abs roller though!

  2. Hi Paul, 

    Your Slendertone Corefit Review is well written. This is a great belt to use, I am sure of that. This is also the most honest review I have seen in recent days where the writer tells people that if u have belly fat it may not work. Kudos to you for that paul.

    I have long battled with a bit of extra fat, and I am looking for a quick fix solution. Aren’t we all? ha ha.

    Thanks for this review.

    Regards,

    Aps

    1. Hi Aps – I appreciate the kind words and thank you for the comment.  I’m glad you see the honesty in the review – I do try my best to be as straight forward and transparent as possible.  Yes, a lot of us are looking for a quick fix solution.  I have many times.  This Corefit is not a quick fix at all.  I just consider it to be an alternative to doing crunches or situps, but it WILL help develop your core strength.  But if your goal is to burn fat, then there are other things I suggest before using this.  Thanks again!

  3. Love your honesty in your review. I have back problems and have been told I need to strengthen my core, I also have excess weight to lose. Is the Slendertone Corefit beneficial for strengthening your core while losing the pounds?

    1. Hi there – thank you for reaching out about this and I’m glad you found the review helpful. The Slendertone Corefit will definitely strengthen your core, because it’s literally an ab workout. It could technically replace doing situps or crunches. However, as far as losing weight goes, you’d need to alter your diet. I suggest people follow a very simple plan that allows you to lose approximately 4 – 5 pounds per month, eating at a 400 calorie deficit. You can learn about it here. It’s very simple to do as it allows you to still eat foods you enjoy while losing weight. I hope this helps but if you have any other questions, please let me know. Thank you!
