Your Top Slendertone Questions Answered

Slendertone has been a great addition to the routine of thousands of people while working and exercising from home! Every day we get plenty of questions from you guys about Slendertone and how to make the most of your ab toning belt. That’s why we put together the top questions so you can firm, tone and strengthen your muscles in the most effective way! Let’s start with the question everyone wants answered…

Does Slendertone really work?

Absolutely! Slendertone uses *clinically proven EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) technology which stimulates the nerves of the targeted muscles, causing them to contract. In fact, we have conducted extensive research and through our independent research trials, Slendertone is proven to be effective in firming, toning, and strengthening the abdominals. But we don’t need to tell you, our Slendertoners can do that! 100% of users reported their abdominal muscles felt firmer and more toned after 6 weeks while 92% of users felt that the firmness and strength of their ab muscles have increased.

But wait, how does Slendertone work?

Here's how it works: the Slendertone ab belt uses our patented three Pad placement to exercise the central abdominal muscles and external obliques. The EMS technology penetrates and stimulates the deepest core muscles. It replicates natural muscle contractions by sending impulses from the Gel Pads to the 4 ab muscles causing them to tighten and tone in just weeks. These nerves branch out to reach all the abdominal muscles (not just those under the pads) causing them to contract and relax naturally, working all the muscles at the same time.

So, what does Slendertone actually feel like?

The sensation is pleasant and strong. Once you switch on your Slendertone, you will feel a mild pulsing and tingling sensation, followed by the tightening of your abdominal muscles. The muscles should contract smoothly, hold themselves in a tensed position for a few seconds and gently relax again. You control how powerful the pulses are with the intensity controller. The intensity goes from level 0-100 and as you increase the intensity you will start to feel distinct muscle contractions. This is when our muscles, and you, are optimising your workout. We recommend starting on a lower level and increasing the intensity as you get stronger!

It should never be too uncomfortable, but you should feel like you’ve pushed yourself a little bit harder every time you tone. You should be able to hold a conversation, work at your desk or do chores around the house.

How often should I use my Slendertone?

The best results are seen when you use Slendertone daily. Consistency is key and you will see results from 6 weeks! From then, continue to use it 2-3 times a week to maintain your results.

Does it help me lose weight?

Slendertone won’t help you lose weight or reduce body fat as it uses EMS technology to tone and strengthen the targeted muscle. You may need to lose body fat to see just how Slendertone tightens your abs and helps you to achieve that hard-to-get core definition. That’s why we always recommend using your Slendertone to complement a healthy and active lifestyle.

What are Gel Pads?

The Gel Pads are medical grade. Their unique coating sticks to your skin and helps the impulses reach your muscles safely and effectively. Their large size ensures the comfort of your training session and the success of your toning session relies on the quality of your Gel Pads. When it's time for new Gel Pads, these last about 20-30 toning sessions, we highly recommend ordering 2-3 sets of Gel Pads at a time so that you don’t miss a day of toning while waiting for new Gel Pads to arrive!

Can I share my Slendertone with my partner?

Yes of course. However, if more than one person intends to use the ab belt, we recommend ordering two and here’s why:

  • The Gel Pads are placed on the belt according to your waist size so if you share your belt, the Gel Pads will wear quicker as they will need to be re-positioned for your partner unless you are both the same size.
  • You will also need to change the Gel Pads much more frequently if you are sharing. If you do choose to share your Slendertone, you must order more Gel Pads on your first order because the first set won’t last long enough to see results between two people.
  • You won’t be able to wear your Slendertone together if you share which is something our Slendertoners love to do! A lot of people wear the ab belts together while going for walks, doing chores around the house etc.

I have a pre-existing illness; can I still use a Slendertone device?

If you have any of the following illnesses, you should not use Slendertone: Heart problems, including people fitted with a pacemaker, Diabetes of the type which requires you to inject insulin or Cancer, particularly if you have cancerous lesions on your skin. If you are unsure, please consult with your GP before using our products as they will be familiar with your condition and should be able to advise if EMS technology is suitable for you.
