We’ve all heard it before: there’s no such thing as spot reduction. But men and women all over Europe have been losing fat (and inches) in their trouble zones (belly, hips & thighs) for the last five years with an award-winning fat burning system called Slim Belly. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it works.
About two years ago my husband Frank was in Italy speaking to a group of health club owners. He’s been in the fitness industry for 30 years and has seen clubs all over the world. So when he came across the Director of Personal Training wearing some device around his belly, he had to ask what it was. The trainer said it was called Slim Belly and he was using it to try to lose that “last bit of fat” around his waist. He said it worked for his clients and they love it.
When Frank brought the Slim Belly brochures home, I was more than skeptical. I’m just a fitness girl who has a passion for helping other people but I also have a Master’s Degree in Exercise & Sports Sciences from the University of Florida where we learned that SPOT REDUCTION IS IMPOSSIBLE. After doing some research, I found out that Slim Belly was introduced into 25 health clubs in Europe in 2008. Today, there are over 1,000 exclusive health clubs that offer Slim Belly to their members. And though I was skeptical, I couldn’t help but wonder why over 1,000 health clubs would pay a lot of money for a program that didn’t work.
Slim Belly System is a convenient exercise tool that gently massages the fat between your skin and your core muscles while you exercise, bringing blood to the area. This enables fat, a rich source of energy, to be burned as fuel during exercise.
Slim Belly uses the patented Airpressure Bodyshaping Method, which stimulates increased blood flow to target stubborn belly fat. The belt, worn around the waist, is inflated and deflated by a pneumatic unit. This unit, which has an integrated rechargeable battery, fits snugly in a neoprene pack that also can be worn around your waist. This non-invasive and effective exercise tool has helped hundreds of thousands of Europeans lose inches. Subjects in a research study at The Austrian Institute of Sports Medicine lost 8 times more fat around their waists when using the Slim Belly System than those doing the exact same cardio exercise without it.
Dr. Eric MacIntosh, a professor of Kinesiology at the University of Ottawa and researcher for the Commonwealth Games and Olympics, has been testing Slim Belly since early May. “I have reviewed the Austrian study and the science behind Slim Belly and found both to be sound”, says Dr. MacIntosh. “A great side-effect is that my postural muscles have improved. I get a sense of running in a more upright fashion as well which tends to be more biomechanically favorable for the body. I find Slim Belly to be both novel and motivational.”
After much due diligence, conversations with a lot of club owners in Europe, a neighborhood “study” in our basement, and 2 trials in health clubs in the U.S., we made the decision to bring this technology to North America.
Over 600,000 Slim Belly users in 16 countries have lost an average of three inches from their waists (measured in two places) in four weeks. These results were replicated in two U.S. trials. “I love it,” said Aliya K. after losing 8 pounds and 11 inches (5 inches above her navel and 6 inches below) in the 4 week trial at Weston Fitness in Philadelphia. “Before the program, I was considering gastric bypass surgery—but not anymore. I didn’t think a simple product like this could change my life.”
Karen R. is a 48 year old, mother of twin boys who, no matter how hard she worked out (including running marathons and doing Insanity in her garage), couldn’t budge an inch from her waist. After adding Slim Belly to her routine, she lost 1 1/2 inches above her navel and 5 inches below.
And for all of you post-menopausal women out there (I’m one of them), you can still lose inches around your middle. Megan C. lost 3 inches above her navel and 3 inches below after walking around her neighborhood 3 times a week for 30 minutes while wearing her Slim Belly.
The reason why I fell in love with Slim Belly is because it helps the average person see visible results in a relatively short amount of time. It doesn’t replace exercise—it enhances it.
