Ab Doer 360 Review
By CANDICE GREY
Update: Jan 03, 2023
The ab doer 360 is an at home exercise device that is said to be lightweight, compact, and easy to have in your home. It contains a seat with two striped handles that go out on each side from left to right. It claims to help strengthen, tone, and burn fat and calories all over the body but primarily in the stomach region. The company that produces this device is also called ab doer 360, and it is sold on their main website, then direct online, and on amazon.com just to name a few. It will cost around $199.95 not including shipping, and it comes with an instructional DVD with workouts so you are aware of how to use it from day one.
How Does The Ab Doer 360 Work?
You will stay seated the entire time you are working on this machine, and it targets the mid section but also helps sculpt the entire body. The seat swivels all around, and you will grab onto the handlebars which rest under your biceps. There is back support, and a lot of swiveling side to side and even in circular motions to engage those core muscles and back muscles.
Go side to side, or make large circles it is meant to mirror a stability ball with the movement seat. If you want to work your legs simply move them side to side and in and out for more work in those areas. The instructional DVD will show you a variety of moves you can practice to target select areas. Warning, it does look a little weird when you first see it but you can tell the muscle groups are being worked.
This exercise device has the user staying seated while they swivel around, right to left and back to front. Legs can also be worked as well.back to menu ↑
What Is Included
All customers who purchase the Ab Doer 360 from the official company website will also receive a quick start guide, a nutritional guide with suggested healthy recipes, a motivational calendar, and a comprehensive instructional DVD with multiple workouts for users of any fitness level to demonstrate how to use the device. This is listed on the website as a “free extra gift” with your purchase and is claimed to be worth $100. But this could change, just as with every promotion.
The firm we spoke with did mention that a two-year warranty could be purchased for $30 more, but that aside from this, the machine is covered by a regular one-year warranty against any manufacturer faults.back to menu ↑
Is The Ab Doer Safe?
If you follow the instructions the right way, you should not get hurt while using the ab doer 360. There is nothing really harmful about the device but know how to use it before jumping on it, as it does move and swivel in a variety of ways. It can be used in the comfort of your own home, so always know your limits before getting any exercise machines as there is no supervision on overuse and technique.
The Ab Doer 360 has elevated bars which will align your spine and back in a safe position while making moves right to left and front to back. Improved flexibility is going to occur while using it because of how much natural stretching is occurring. While some people enjoyed the Ab Doer 360 for strength and weight loss, others complained it did strain their backs a touch so be mindful of that. Lastly, there is a dual roller on each side of the bars that support the back to gently massage the outsides of the spine.
This machine is safe, but some people have mentioned that their backs are sore so make sure you are set up correctly before operating.back to menu ↑
Pros and Cons of The Ab Doer
As with any home exercise device, it is imperative that you watch the tutorial DVD before jumping on it, so that you do not get hurt. This can be both a pro and a con. If something is so complicated that you need to watch a DVD to understand how it works, it is not as user friendly as it could be. On the contrary it is nice that the company provides the DVD for customers. A con, it can come across as gimmicky which may be a turn off for some consumers. Another con is the price, because it costs over $200 with shipping. For those who may not know if it works or not it could be too steep of a price to pay.
Lastly, another con is simply the fact that the ab doer 360 is not found in many gyms, so familiarity is non-existent making a purchase less hard.back to menu ↑
Ab Doer 360 Word On The Street
The official Amazon.com listing had 94 reviews as of the time of posting, with an average rating of 3.5 stars out of 5. The review that was most useful on the Amazon page gave it a two-star rating and said that while the product was simple to build, it did not provide enough resistance for an effective workout, necessitating the purchase of additional resistance separately.
Another review, the second-most helpful one, said it was ideal for anyone searching for a variety of exercises. The reviewer in particular had trouble balancing because of hip replacements and a fractured leg in the past.
13 users gave the system a 4.8 out of 5 rating on HSN.com, with the top reviewer praising the system’s simplicity of assembly and the improvement in her toned arms and tighter tummy.
On TVStuffReviews.com, it received a 2.7 out of 5 stars from 45 reviewers, with mixed ratings. The negative claims talked about the machine’s difficulty to use and the bad customer support, while the positive claims talked about the fat reduction noticed after using it for a few weeks.back to menu ↑
How much does the Ab Doer 360 cost?
The Ab Doer 360 machine’s pricing mostly depends on where you buy it, with an average cost of roughly $220 if you buy from a third-party source like Amazon.com or Walmart, for instance.
However, if you were to buy through the official website, you would have a choice between three different payment methods: a one-time payment of $199.80 without the option of a trial offer, a one-time payment of 199.80 plus a $14.75 trial offer, or four installments of $49.95 plus the $14.75 trial offer.
If you choose to take advantage of the trial offer, you can use the machine for 30 days for $14.95. If, however, you decide you do not like it for any reason, you can return it for a full price refund. However, it is stated that you will be responsible for the return shipping; one online reviewer claimed he had to pay $65 for shipping.
Finally, expect to pay between $200 and $220 for a brand-new gadget from almost any internet vendor.back to menu ↑
This ab product does more than just sculpt abs, it can really work the whole body if you use it correctly. It does come with a steep price, but compared to larger ticket items like treadmills it does not seem that expensive. Some users complained of back issues, but generally it is safe for use. It does not seem like a bad purchase, but it comes across as a little gimmicky at first look. All in all the ab doer 360 is another good option to help melt the pounds and get back into good shape.
- Complicated to use
i bought a abdoer360 last april thinking it would be good exercise and weight lost.it came with strick meal plan,i canot eat there good for me foods they suck.i used it for two months and felt better but my belly good bigger and harder.i never lost a pound i gain then my pants would not fit.
I am 74 and got this to strengthen my abs and core. Since I can’t go to the gym this looked like the best alternative for my purpose. I have bad knees and back so I can’t lie
or kneel on the floor. Even with the “stiffest” power rod, there is practically no resistance when I try and do crunches. There is also a design flaw in that the handles cannot be stablized. They slip and make crunches almost impossible. This would be easy to fix with another pin like the ones used to attach the different parts together. I’m trying to figure out how to pack it up to send it back. It certainly won’t be as secure as it was when it came to me.
