Slendertone FlexMax is a great little stomach trimmer! Probably works best for those with an active lifestyle anyway, so don't think this is an easy way to a six pack or flat tummy! I suppose if you're not used to a exercise routine it will introduce you to one in an easy way. Although always read the box these things are not for those with heart conditions or pace makers although that's an obvious fact to most. And don't forget that most of these types of items will be excluded from any "money back" guarantee that shops carry with resell able items these days, this is due to the nature of the electrical conductor pads having a sticky glue like feel to I can only imagine keeps the contact close to the skin good but which in it's self would create hygiene issues. Having to peel off a clear plastic cover and replace every time can be awkward at first but you soon get used to it. But don't leave them in storage with for long periods with the batteries and the pads, mine leaked/not sure if it was a combination of the pads or just the batteries but the belt was unusable after that. These are not really something you'd want to pass about the gym with every body sweating on, but still a lot easier for personal use than some of the alternatives on the market which involve a gel substance to ensure good electrical contact and it's all in one meaning that fitting is quite easy in stead of separate straps etc I've used before. With a built in training function which increases your workout with an LCD screen telling you how long the workout has to go and the intensity makes a welcome change from turning a knob or dial and timing it on a watch making it an all round easy experience.
