Is The Flex Belt a Scam?

My name is Adam Marshall, and I think there are a few things you should know if you are considering responding to the hundreds of spam emails you have no doubt already received, trying to sell you something called, “The Flex Belt.” To me, it seemed like an update to those old-fashioned “vibration belts,” which we all know don’t do anything. It irritated me that someone was getting rich off this kind of scam, so I ordered The Flex Belt, to prove that it doesn’t work as advertised.

I’ve been stunned by the amount of spam that has been getting through my mail filters lately. The crazy “V!@GRA” scams are pretty easy to block using my mail filters, but lately, I have noticed a lot more weight loss and exercise-related messages get through. It seems like no matter what filters I use, and no matter how careful I am to train them, a lot of these are still managing to get through. Recently, I have seen a huge uptick in the amount of messages I have been receiving for a product called “The Flex Belt.” Maybe you’ve seen it, too. See if this sounds familiar:

“Tone, Tighten, Firm and Strengthen your Abs…Satisfaction Guaranteed!”

If that kind of genius marketing language doesn’t make you sit up and take notice, you should check your pulse, because you’re probably dead! Dazzled by all kinds of super 1980′s-style gold text, I clicked through to the site to see what these guys were up to. I was immediately assaulted by a video, almost taunting me to place an order. That was the last straw…it was time to put these guys down. I figured that if I could check out the product, and get some hard-and-fast data out into the world, to provide some sort of balance to the insane amounts of marketing that The Flex Belt people were doing, maybe the world would see once and for all what junk this product is, and the company would have to close its doors. I ordered The Flex Belt, and got ready to tear the company apart.

As I mentioned, I wasn’t too impressed by The Flex Belt website. I have to admit, though, that what I noticed right off the bat, and what made me realize I could try this experiment with no risk to myself, was their guarantee. It would allow me to order the equipment, and then, when it didn’t do anything but jiggle my belly around, I could tear it apart on this website, and then still get my money back. And, best of all, if the company didn’t honor its guarantee, it would just be more negative marks for my review.

Back to the website. While I waited for my package to arrive, I decided to poke around the website a little more. Here is what The Flex Belt company is promising:

The Flex Belt promises the following on their website:

  1. The Flex Belt promises that I can have “strong, toned, firm abs in just weeks.”
  2. The Flex Belt promises to work for 100% of users. That’s right: they claim that it works for absolutely everybody.
  3. The Flex Belt claims to use Electronic Muscle Stimulating technology, to be backed by the FDA, and to have results supported by numerous scientific studies.

Click here to visit their official website to see these claims for yourself.

That information didn’t really give me a ton to go on, but it didn’t matter, because The Flex Belt package had finally arrived from the company. Right off the bat, I was surprised at the overall “build quality” of this thing. It didn’t seem like a toy, and it didn’t seem like some cheap piece of junk that you would get from China. The belt itself seemed strong, and the control unit was sturdy and solidly built. The other thing that was surprising is how quickly it arrived: a little less than a week, from the time I hung up the phone. There wasn’t much else to report just from looking at the thing, so I strapped it on for my first training session.

Flex Belt Review

Midway through my training session with The Flex Belt. Still a long way to go!

There’s something else I need to come clean about. At 32, I am not too happy with what is happening to me, physically. In my 20s, I never, ever had to work out, but 12 years of sitting in front of a computer are starting to take their toll. I don’t think of myself as a “fat” guy, but I am definitely getting a little paunchier around the middle than I would like. I’m not the kind of guy that is going to hit the gym every day, but I am concerned about where all this weight gain is headed. Is it just going to get worse and worse? Do I have to just say goodbye to the days of being able to eat what I feel like, without exercising? Probably. But I have to admit that I am interested in finding a solution, at some point. It’s probably not going to be in crap exercise products like The Flex Belt, but I’m not totally opposed to the possibility, however remote it may be.

Anyway, back to the way this feels. It feels…weird. It’s not what I expected. I expected to strap the thing on, and have it vibrate for a few minutes, ultimately feeling annoying. What actually happened was totally different. From the minute I strapped it on, I could actually feel it contracting my abdominal muscles, over and over and over.

The only thing I can compare it to was when I broke my foot a few years ago. During physical therapy, they hooked me up to a machine to help “re-train” the muscles in my foot. It felt like that…not uncomfortable, but you can definitely feel that something is happening. I have to admit that after that first use, I was intrigued.

Okay, time to get serious, and set up some rules. This thing seemed worth testing, for real, and so here were the rules I used:

Here are the rules I used for testing purposes:

  1. I would wear The Flex Belt for an hour every day, while I was at my desk working, for five weeks.
  2. I wouldn’t do any other abdominal exercises during those five weeks.
  3. I wouldn’t avoid eating foods that I normally eat: If The Flex Belt was going to work, it was going to have to work through about a dozen buffalo wings.
  4. I would continue with my normal cardio routine, a lazy 30 minutes on the elliptical machine, 3 days per week.

For six weeks, I put the outrageous claims made by their website to the test, and I was kind of surprised by what I found. I took pictures along the way, which I think will tell the whole story:

Alright, alright, save the snickering. I know I’m not Hercules, and that was never my goal. But I think you’ll agree that I stopped being a doughy 32 year old, too. In just five weeks, I am already starting to see definition in my abdominal muscles, which I am hoping will just continue to improve. And, best of all, I did it without making any changes to my lifestyle. I’m not a gym rat, and I still eat whatever I feel like. The Flex Belt doesn’t turn you into a bodybuilder, but it does seem to help define your midsection. I plan to keep using it, and will update this page again with my results.

Listen, I know what you’re thinking, because I would be thinking the same thing right about now. We both know there are about a million sketchy weight loss and abdominal exercise devices on the market, and probably every one of them is spamming you. They all make crazy promises, and I am usually pretty good about ignoring all of them. In fact, the opposite is true: bad internet marketing usually bothers me to such a degree, that I start websites like this to try and guide people away from scams like these. But the truth about The Flex Belt is this: if you use it, you will witness increased definition to your abdominals, without killing yourself with crunches or planks. That’s why, even though it wasn’t my original idea for the site, I decided to go ahead and publish it anyway.

I don’t need to push any harder on this, because my pictures should make this a total no-brainer for you. Try it out, and if you don’t like it, return it and get your money back. (Another disclosure: I tested The Flex Belt’s guarantee policy by ordering another unit in my wife’s name, and returning it after two weeks. I got the money returned to my credit card the same day I called for my refund.)

Hi Sue! I’m not sure the Flex Belt would be able to help with loose pregnancy skin, though it would probably be able to help tighten up the muscle underneath.

Courtney March 14, 2012 at 3:26 pm

I have been doing cardio (3X a week for 30 minutes to an hour) for one whole week and I have been wearing my flex belt for about a week.. My little girl is 8 weeks old today and as advised I didn’t start wearing it until after 6 weeks. I can absolutely tell a huge difference in my midsection. I have lost only 2 pounds from exercise and eating but i swear to you this thing is making big changes in my mommy pouch. It is barely noticeable when I stand up- though I’ve got a little ways to go when I sit down (but not much anymore). I honestly couldn’t stand that thing with my first pregnancy and my stomach never looked this good after my first child. My husband thought I was crazy to buy this but he told me last night he was going to try it out. I started at like 45 on the intensity and got up to 105 last night. I wear it everyday for 30 minutes. I was skeptical at first but I so believe gimics.. haha. Now- if only I would have worn my Shrinxhips belt from week 1 to week 8 post partum I could tell you about it.. but I slacked because I couldn’t “see” results. This flex belt is awesome and it honestly doesn’t hurt at all!

Hey Adam. I receibed this as a Christmas gift and I am excited to see the results. I am someone that DOES hit the gym regularly, but can’t seem to gte rid of the stubborn belly fat. Your results are amazing and I hope you are being truthful.

What setting did you start out with and how lomg did you wait to increase the intensity? Will a 1/2 hour daily suffice or would an hour be more beneficial? Do you use it 7 days a week? Sorry for all of the questions. Thanks.

Reply

Adam January 5, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Hi Gary! I started on the lowest setting and worked my way up gradually. Basically, you never want to go to a level higher than is comfortable (and your tolerance for higher levels will increase over time). Start slowly, and be patient…it’s worth it!

Reply

Gary January 5, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Thanks Adam. I started at level 40 and 50 but didn’t quite feel the intensity was enough. Found that 55 was a good level. I guess the idea thing for me to do is increase it by 5 each week???

Adam January 5, 2012 at 4:22 pm

This belt seems to work well for building muscle. Think of it this way: If you don’t have a layer of fat to get through first, the belt should work even more quickly. Please report back to let me know if I’m right. Thanks Jon!

About your pictures – the middle section looks good, my question how about your pectorals? Obviously there is an improvement from picture 1 to 3 , was it the effect of loosing weight via the belt OR you DID exercise in this period?

My question is for Gary. Have you felt or seen any results since using this product for the past 2 weeks?

Reply

Gary January 10, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Hey Shellie. I didn’t actually start unti Jan 3rd. I am following their recommended program in the accompanying manual. I am going to be using it in this manner:

Day 1 and 2 Use the belt
Day 3 Rest
Days 4-6 Use the belt
Day 7 Rest

I am using the program where I “feel” the belt working. I started with program 1 at a level intensity of 40 on both sides. Yesterday I did it on program 3 at an intensity of 75 and I really felt it afterwards. I will increase the intensity level when I deem necessary and I will change programs just the same.

I will keep you guys updated week to week, but I am also doing this in conjunction with diet and exercise because I do have to get rid of some belly fat. You can’t see abs when it’s covered by fat.

Reply

Perry January 14, 2012 at 1:37 am

Hey does I get that the flex belt will make you lose weight and get relatively defined abs, but after that, can it get you serious abs? (meaning well defined) (not that I have either yet but I’m just trying to plan ahed) :P

How do you know its working. I feel the tingling level45 . I do have a lot of abd. Fat but is that what I’m supposed to feel. Io don’t feel any contracting.

Reply

Gary January 20, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I kept raising the intensity level until I felt the contraction. I am on program 4 and level 90. You should feel a contraction and it will feel subtle, but you feel it nonetheless. If you sit still for a few moments while using it you’ll know what I mean.

For those who think it will help you get rid of that belly fat? Not w/out diet and exercise. The belt helps tone the MUSCLE.

Reply

Doug April 4, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Your point about diet and exercise in directly in conflict with Adam’s results. In the 3 pictures of Adam over several weeks are shown both definition and weight loss, yet Adam kept the same diet. What’s up with that?

Nick May 10, 2012 at 1:11 am

Dbaby. There is a recommendation on page 10 or 11 of the users manual. I follow it and increase the intensity as needed. Perhaps email customer service and ask them about the hour usage then let us know of there response.

Ha so I thought yeah sure i will go for that plus in OZ dollar now i get it for even less :) So if want it a bit cheaper, go to order as per normal but of course don’t put credit details in, click off the site and then window will pop up!!

Kat January 29, 2012 at 11:51 pm

Hi Adam, thanks for reviewing this belt! I have one also. I’ve had it for a few weeks and have been using it. I’m a 50 yr old that has had 5 kids. 2 of those were by C-section and I also had a hysterectomy about 10 years ago that created adhesions (scar tissue inside abdomen) that made it extremely difficult to work out my core and keep good form without a lot of pain. Because my core got so weak over the years I have suffered a lot of lower back pain. The pamphlet said to use the highest setting comfortable when starting out, although it does give you a guideline on where to start. I started at level 50 and now am up to level 90 (it goes to 150 and has several workouts preprogrammed, I am on workout 3). It’s still comfortable. I can already feel my abs are stronger. Also the bonus is my lower back doesn’t ache everyday now. My plan is to use this to get my abs strong enough so that I can actually work out to lose the extra 20 pounds I am carrying right now. I say this does work! I’m very happy with the results so far and this is not a weight loss aide in my opinion, it’s great for just strengthning and tightning abs and helps with lower back pain after those abs are strengthened. Great blog!

joe March 4, 2012 at 4:11 am

Hi Adam, not to be too personal but why would you stop using the Flex Belt? If it is such a great exercise tool, why would you stop using it? If the belt truly produced such great results how would you not keep using it? Even every once in awhile. Another thing I noticed about your article was how it originally stated you would not change a thing about dieting chomping down on wings and what not, to having later comments saying you now diet. Also this site has been up for some time which leaves me to wonder a few things, you went to school or took classes in Web Site developing and I applaud you for your very drawing site and expert layout. You feedback has been quite continuous so it still leaves me wondering how a third party tester would not keep using the Flex Belt while still believing in it to keep posting to this commercial site.

Hello Adam,
Wrote you on 2/15 – Now I am on 5th weeks (10 days skipped because I was in overseas) with level 70/70, usually set prog. 7 and alternate to 8 in other days. Use it 4-5 days in a week. I often change the belt position on my belly eg., this week is focusing on lower ab and the following week will be on upper section. I really enjoy using this with a good result. One thing I changed in my diet is “stopped eating after 7:00pm” that was it.
My daughter came home for spring break, she could not believe my tummy looks so lean (not skinny – lean and tighter). I feel just great being 52 and about my tommy. Will keep on enjoying it!

I hate to be rude, but the people asking if this will magically make your belly fat disappear are delusional and I’m someone that is battling the “bulge.”

I’m doing it by using the belt in CONJUNCTION with diet and exrecise. If it were as easy as strapping an EMS belt around our waist and making that belly fat disappear, everyone would be doing it. Come on people, use some common sense. Sheesh.

Hi Sean Paul! I wouldn’t say that it feels like you’re getting shocked, exactly, but it definitely feels strange. If you turn it up too high, it can be a little uncomfortable, but if you build up to it, it’s fine. And you definitely feel it afterwards!

No, the Flex Belt will TONE, and STRENGTHEN your abdominal muscles, the excess fat you must diet and exercise for. The belt will leave you with amazing abdominal muscles once you get that fatty curtain off of your abs!

I can’t believe some of the idiotic questions being asked even though they’ve already been answered in previous responses.

Bob. If you want to fry your nerve endings? Sure. Wear the belt all day.

Hi Adam. I was wondering how much are the pads that need replacing monthly, and I didn’t see a reply about the batteries are they rechargeable? This is really great of you to do this I checked the reviews for the contour and they were pretty bad I am goin to order it and I will let you guys know what results I have.

Does anyone know if the belt will work on other parts of the body such as the thighs?

Reply

Courtney March 14, 2012 at 3:32 pm

They sell one for the butt and thighs and the arms. I bought the one for butt and thighs but was too nervous to waste my money (bought that and the flex belt at the same time).. now i wish I could have kept it because the flex belt really does work!

Adam- GREAT results pitcures. My husband is in your old boat and I hope it works for him like it worked for you!

I am super excited to see my 6 week results! I am in week 2!! I love this thing! Last night I wore it while on the treadmill which was sorta weird feeling but I guess I got even more contractions! I am so a believer!

Thanks for your blog! Sorry for blowing it up with comments! :)

Are there any 60+ guys out there who’ve used this product successfully?

I’m an active and fit, 62-year-old, but started to develop a bit of a belly in my mid-50′s. No matter how active I stayed (at the gym and elsewhere), my abdomen just seemed to shift southwards; a common occurrence for guys at that age, it seems.

My lower back keeps me from doing prolonged ab exercises.

I just received this today and it appears to be a real quality product. I have already done 3 – 30 minute sessions and level 150 does not seem too powerful even though I definitely feel it. I am 22% body fat, concentrated around my belly, so maybe that is why the belt does not seem very powerful. I am 5’8″ tall and weigh 182 pounds. I am really glad I got this belt but I wonder if mine is as powerful as it should be.

Hi Adam. I’m about to be 30 soon. I also have been sitting for years. Im up to 250. My question is does it have a limit to how big you are. Or does it really wrap around anyone? I’m big and all the other stuff never really wrapped around me. Thank you and have a great day

I received this from the company in answer to my questions on sizes….
“The Flex Belt can accommodate waist sizes 24-47 inches. It does come with a 5 inch extender making it able to fit waist sizes up to 52 inches. The Flex Arms fits a circumference of 8-14 inches. We do recommend you speak with your Doctor before using the Flex Belt.”
Hope this helps!

I have had the flex belt for over a month now and I have made some interesting discoveries. The belt may fit a large waist but it will be completely useless for anyone who is fat. The electrical impulses cannot penetrate a lot of fat and the muscles will not contract. When I first received the flex belt I was 22% fat and I did not feel very strong contractions at the highest level of 150. Now, at 19% fat after proper diet and working hard at the gym, the contractions feel much stronger , but still weak at level 150. My son, who is 8.3% bodyfat, can only go to level 60 before it becomes too much for him to stand. So it seems that the flex belt is useless for those who need it most.

Hi,
1.) I was wondering if the flex belt has negative effects, like hurting or damaging your internal organs.
2.) If you stop using the flex belt will anything happen to you?
Thank you

I appreciate your unbiased experiment on the Flex Belt – there are so many scams out there who can really know and we just normally assume we as consumers will be ripped off. The results do seem amazing; however, my observation regarding your time lapse photos are that you obviously lost weight everywhere – not just a tightened up ab area. How did you change your diet and exercise routine during those 6 weeks of photos. When you loose weight period your abs will shrink – not necessarily firm up they will get smaller.

Adam half way through your comments I couldn’t help but think he’s going to turn from skeptic to promoting this product. How did I know that?? Just a hunch. How do I know you aren’t someone working for the company and laid out an elaborate posting. If you did, it was a good one! I realize that if I don’t like it I can return it but I would like for once run across someone who is truly honest and not just trying to help a company make dishonest money. From A true skeptic!!

Adam March 10, 2013 at 1:13 am

I appreciate your skepticism, Lil, especially with all the fake “review” -type websites out there. I can honestly tell you that I do not work for the Flex Belt, and the experiences I described actually happened to me.

Hi Adam!

I’m from the Philippines and I’m looking into purchasing this nifty machine. Does it come with a meal plan or a frequency plan? I’m quite concerned because most meal plans that came from outside my country has food and ingredients not commonly found here.

I’m hoping it would work well for me as much as it has worked for you. I try to run 5k 5 days a week and from the sound of it, this could be an ideal catalyst to my weight goal.
