Ab Coaster Review
Ab Coaster Review Results: Close Second
Our Ab Coaster Review showed that this is a serious, gym-quality abdominal exercise machine that effectively targets your core and really can give you six pack abs.
“Ab Coaster: The Fast Track to Great Abs™”
Right off the bat in our Ab Coaster Review, we were impressed by the exceptional build quality of this machine. This is truly a gym-quality machine. Constructed with heavy duty steel, the Ab Coaster is designed to support up to 300 lbs. The knee pad and arm pads are top of the line and comfortable. This ab machine is built for use and built to last.
Along with the digital counter, the Ab Coaster comes with a manual, meal plan and workout DVD. It’s designed to accommodate people from 4’10” to 6’10” tall without needing any adjustments. The molded foam padded adjustable seat can be adjusted to multiple angles in its track to target your obliques (love handles!). Weight plate posts also allow up to 20 lbs. of weight to be added so you can take your workouts to the next level (the weights don’t come with the machine, however, so you will have to get them separately).
Now that the technical info is out of the way, let’s see if this Ab Coaster review awards it the best ab machine title. First, does it work? In a word, yes. The Ab Coaster targets your core and delivers an excellent workout. This is a superior choice for getting six-pack abs and burning off those love handles. To top that all off, it’s actually fun to use.
The Ab Coaster works your abdominals in a completely opposite way than your typical ab crunch machine. Instead of working your abdominal muscles from top to bottom, the Ab Coaster works from the bottom up, helping you blast the fat from those tough-to-reach lower abs and build muscle. The Ab coaster can really be the only abdominal exercise routine you need.
The carriage for your knees is surprisingly quite comfortable. To use the Ab Coaster, all you have to do is pull your knees up. As you lift, the knee carriage glides along the biometrically designed curved track, engaging your lower abs first, then the middle and upper region, giving you a complete abdominal workout. The device also promotes core stabilization by isolating the abdominal region and virtually eliminating any hip flexor involvement.
The manufacturer’s description puts it best: “The Ab Coaster keeps you in perfect form and makes it easy for anyone, regardless of fitness level, to exercise their entire abdominal regions correctly and effectively every time without straining their necks or lower backs.”
So why does our Ab Coaster Review put it in second place if it delivers such outstanding results? Well, as much as we love this machine, it’s larger and costs more than the best ab machine on our list. The Ab Coaster Pro also only works your core whereas the other equipment in the top three have multiple uses.
This is the top-of-the-line Ab Coaster (Ab Coaster 750 Deluxe Stainless Steel Pro Series) – 2 steps above the one sold on TV. It has better padding and rollers as well as upgraded 1.5” stainless steel rails. With this version you also get molded arm pads for added comfort and a free motion seat.
If you are looking for a truly ab-shredding workout that won’t strain your back and neck – and you have the budget and space for the Ab Coaster, it (and the six pack abs you’ll get using it) is worth every penny!
