With the demands of modern day working life proving challenging for many, the struggle to find the time to look after ourselves by living a healthy and active lifestyle is made harder. In fact, almost three-quarters* of UK workers feel they are expected to be ‘always on’ when it comes to their jobs. Research by Slendertone also reveals that 60% of Brits worry that the length of time they spend sitting down each day could have a long-term health implication, proving that today’s sedentary existence could be impacting not only our health, but our emotional wellbeing.

Slendertone has a solution for those who might not have enough hours in the day but are looking to unleash the benefits of building a powerful core, strengthen the abdominal muscles, and ultimately conquer all of their wellbeing targets. For existing gym-goers, it doesn’t matter if you’re looking to either amplify existing workouts, focus on abs on rest days or even aid recovery… One sure way to flex your muscles is with Slendertone.

Slendertone’s Connect Abs belt uses advanced EMS technology to activate 100% of the abdominals. EMS sends tiny signals to the nerve endings, which in turn relaxes and then contracts the muscular fibres, including the harder to reach deep transversus abdominus (TVA). Like a corset stabilising the spine during functional movements, the TVA not only prevents injury but it also helps to flatten the stomach as a direct result from toning. With 85% of Brits wishing they had a firmer, more toned stomach, using Slendertone results in firmer abs, improved posture and a stronger core. There really is no excuse not to tone on-the-go or worry about neck strain from performing sit-ups incorrectly. Using the belt for just 30 minutes a day is the equivalent to performing 202 consistent performance crunches. For best results, Slendertone recommends 4-5 sessions per week in conjunction with a regular fitness regime and healthy diet.
