Body Sculpture Power Slimmer BM1505
Advantages: Work out with minimal effort
Disadvantages: Can make you feel dizzy at times
For months now I've needed to rid myself of that excess baby weight, but having two children full-time meant I needed something I could use at home.
What exercise equipment could I use in the comfort of my own home-with limited space? This is how I came across the power slimmer.
When assembled, this product is:
H 108cm, W 63cm and D 53cm
When it arrived, there were a few pieces which needed screwing together-this took literally five minutes to set up (we thought there were pieces missing-but they were neatly tucked in the packaging).
I purchased this for £159.99, but as it was purchased from Littlewoods we did pay a little over the odds. It's available for about £130 from quite a few other retailers-Amazon being one of them.
I'd be lying if I said I knew how it aids my weight loss-but so far it seems to be doing something.
I purchased this about three weeks ago, and already I can feel my legs are more toned. I can see a substancial difference already- from only 15 minutes usage per day. 15-20 minutes on a power slimmer is supposed to be the equivalent to working out in the gym for one hour. For all you lazy people out there-this is the perfect scenario for you.
As well as general weight loss, toning and muscle strength, the power slimmer is designed to improve blood circulation, metabolism, improve joints and cellulite. It can improve the general tone of all areas of your body-depending on which positions you choose while using it. Although the instruction manual only came with six suggested positions, I actually found better ones googling them on the internet.
If you can handle the intensity of this machine, then it's a fantastic way of losing weight. There are 5 levels of speed, but it recommends that:
-Lower speeds be used to massage aches and pains, increase flexibility, and to improve blood flow to muscles and joints
-Medium speeds burn fat, are ideal for light work-outs and to tone and stimulate musles, joints, ligaments and bones
-Higher speeds are recommended to tone and condition muscles, improve bone density and for fitness in general
All functions are controlled with a remote control, making it really easy if you are in the middle of a program and want to adjust speeds or turn it off.
There are three different programs:
-(P1) Wave mode programs
The wave shape high and low rythm
-(P2) Pitch mode program
The long distance climb training
-(P3) Towers mode program
The high and low transformation
The different programs are shown by different colours:
The levels are indicated by different colours too
-Level 1-2 (Green)
-Level 3-5 (Red)
I find this power slimmer really simple to use- although I do sometimes find it confusing when it's set to manual as the settings alternate. If you are on the first program, the first minute is one level 3, the second minute is on level 4, the third minute is on level 5 and then it goes back to level 4 and so on. For this reason, I tend to set it to either high or low.
I never use this machine when I am hungry or overly tired-as the vibrating and oscillating plate really do vibrate and they can make you go really dizzy. I would also advise that you wear shoes-as the first time I used this, I didn't and it was really uncomfortable.
The height of the handle can be adjusted-making it ideal for all different shapes and sizes (up to a maximum user weight of 100kg/16 stone). By unscrewing the bottom of the handle, it can be neatly tucked away when not in use.
The power slimmer also comes with a one year guarantee, should you have any problems with it during this time.
I would recommend this product as it has worked wonders for me already. There aren't many fitness products with the ability to work on your whole body-this one does. It sends vibrations to whichever part you chose to work on, and at a comfortable speed for you. All without breaking a sweat!
