I bought the unit a week ago. Assembly was minimal and simple, taking about 10 minutes. The unit is well constructed in my opinion. I am 44, 5'11" and 215 pounds, my waist is 36". I am not in great shape, especially my abdominal area. When I do 15 of the "normal jacknife" exercises, I can definately feel the burn in my entire abdominal area. I do about 7 or 8 sets of 15 every other day. I'll write about any results when I get them, probably 6 to 8 weeks from now.

I think this is false advertisement I bought one because they fold but it doesn't. They told me whenI went back they were recalled because they hurt fingers. I don't have room for it to stay open but I am stuck with it. Leona

My parents just bought the ab lounge a few days ago. I'm just 13, but I still helped to put it together. It was assembled in about 15 minutes and I was the first to try it. I didn't really feel a burn though. The next day I used the video, and I thought it was entirely worth the money. The only thing was that I got a slight headache, but nothing too much. Even though its only been about 4-5 days, I can see a difference in my waist line. I will try my best to write back later to tell how i feel about the abl2 in a few weeks. But for now i think its completely worth the money

We bought our Ab Lounge Sport yesterday after debating long and hard. I was really looking forward to the "easy and comfortable" crunches. well, we had a time putting it together. The instructions were terribly unclear. My husband is able to build and rebuild computers, but this he had a problem with, and so it took him over an hour. Then when I started to use it, it was hard to not want to use my arms to pull up on the strap, since they were right there! That may or may not have had anything to do with my lower back beginning to hurt. But I found that adjusting my body certain ways and experimenting with the placement of my arms and hands, I can get somewhat of a workout. But I will definitely continue to keep trying until I start seeing results. I'm going to get my $90.00 out of it!

I jus recieved my Ab Lounge 2. From what i heard, i decided to buy it from a local store in toronto. The ab Lounge didint take more than 10 minutes to put together. As soon as it was ready, i did exactly wut i seen on TV and i immediatly felt the burn, awsome crunches. Very good product and i highly recommend it. definatley looking forward for more products from this company. Ill be back as well after about a month and let you know the results.

I have been using ablounge 2 for about 4 months I haven't seen a reduction in my stomach I would have thought by now I would have seen a difference but no such luck, but I do know that the exercises are good for a cardio workout so atleast the machine is good for the cardio.

Hi, I am a female of the younger age group. I have been using the Ab lounge 2 for but three days and I have already lost 5 pounds. I do very long and hard workouts though. Some call me insane, they say that they would never try my workout (500 without stopping, twice a day) but it works. The product does fold, just not very easily--on the bars you bolted onto the Ab Lounge once receiving, take two bolts off, one on each side and it will fold easily; the hardest part is putting it back up. The product works very well if you do not have any sort of back, shoulder, or muscle problems; but if you do, it is a lot harder to use, I presume. I would, however, recommend this product to other people.

I was dissapointed in my ab-lounge2. It does not fold up as the infomercial suggests and the hand strap is so small I can barely fit one hand through it, and I am not a large person. It does however, seem to burn muscle. I am sure it works, but I cant use it properly with the small handstrap.So, I dont use it. Waste of Money and Space.

I bought the Abl2 and love it. I use it every day. I have lost about 5 inches in 4weeks. I love it.

I tried the al2 for 3 days and i can see the results already. I think is a great machine the only problem is that when you do a lot of crunches at the same time, your back hurts very much and your neck hurts a lot too. But i still think it is worth the effort and going through the pain because you really see results. I have lost 3 pounds already...Try it....

This is also sold in discount stores here. It is known by other names. If you are a person who relies on a physical product to exercise then this could be a product suitable for you. As with other ab products there are alternatives to generate the same effects. To get a similar effect whilst sitting on a normal chair continue to lift your legs up. I used this product for about 1 month and got some results. I get the same results from lifting my legs up. I no longer use this product because it is a little bulky, and it is much more convenient to watch tv and lift your legs - anywhere, anyplace. The product in general is easy to use and does not require much instruction to use.

I am happy with the results. The only thing I am unhappy about is I can't fold it up like the advertisings suggest. It takes up alot of room. It needs to be more compact.

I have the ablounge 2. This product DOES WORK. I am 5'6 and itis quite comfortable for me. In two weeks I have lost 2 inches in my waist line. YES! You must eat right.Reduce your caloric intake to see results. I also use my ab lounge to tone my bi-ceps, triceps, butt, thighs, obliques and hamstrings. I have my ab lounge in my bedroom...right in front of the TV and I do crunches when I watch TV. I must say that if used properly and know-how you can get maxumum results with the ab-lounge.. and YES!!!. I am able to work all those areas.

I bought this product last fall and started using it around the last part of October. I have bought several ab gimmics before, from what I call the "butt bucket" that Susanne Sommers used to sell, to one that you would pull against your stomach, to the "Ab Doer." I feel the Ab lounge is the most effective abdominal exercise machine I've ever tried. At the time of purchase, I weighed the most I ever have in my life, almost 245 pounds. About 6 months later, I am around 215 pounds. I haven't really changed my diet, I just find I eat less now. I think the muscles holding in the stomach helps to keep its volume down. I never did take the time to take body measurements before I started, but my size 38 waist jeans are now too loose. I've been holding off in buying new pants as I'm hoping to lose some more waistline. Suffering from back problems, I could never comfortably do situps or crunches. A rowing machin that I have was kind of fun to use but also killed my back. More embarassingly, I rub a spot raw on my hindside that often bleeds when I do situps on the floor. The lounge causes me no discomfort in these areas and I can really feel the burn around my waist. I am also one who was disappointed that the Ab Lounge 2 version did not fold up. So for easy storage, I bought some wing nuts (metric) and replaced the lock nuts holding the braces with them. This is a little more inconvient than the folding model shown on TV, but it doesn't take too much more time. And I was also disappointed with the nylon strap in place of the bar from the full version. I couldn't get more than one arm under it at a time at first, but I've found from use that it has stretched a bit and now can fit both arms underneath. My main concerns now is that the strap will eventually tear loose from its mounting screws and that the bungee cords that attach to the underside will rot in the Arizona heat and I will be unable to replace them. (I think these cords are used more to keep the lounge in the proper position than to provide resistance for the exercise.) As a whole, I am very satisfied with my purchase, more so than any other home exercise device I've tried. It's kind of fun to use and very easy on the back. My only problem is the motivation to exercise in general now since the newness wore off. I've slacked off from 4 to 5 days of usage a week to 2 to 3 days. But I've worked up from one set of 10 reps at each position to three sets of 10 reps. For what it's worth, I am a satisfied customer but wish I had the heavier duty appearing infomercial version than the version 2, which I bought through  Penney.

It looks like a great product but when you use it, you will realize that the workout you are getting is much less for the abs than the hip joints! So can we call it more appropriately, Hip Lounge Too?

I saw the AB Lounge infomercial on TV and purchased it online. I actually purchased the Ab Lounge 2 in which according to the description, basically perform the same way. I received the product, assembled in approx. 20-30 min. and proceded to try out the Ab Lounge 2. To my discomfort I didn't feel I was performing the crunches correctly, it felt as if the machine wasn't long enough Now I am a woman that is 5'8 and 135 pounds, so I should be able to perform a descent crunch. The next morning I contacted the company and asked if there were any height restrictions, and yes there is. The Ab Lounge 2 performs properly with the height of 5'7 and below. They went on to tell me that the AB Lounge would accommadate my height because of the adjustable bar. I just think that the company should disclose that information, they disclose the weight requirement why not the height. I have since returned the product and now am waiting for my refund. So I have no idea of the effects of the Ab Lounge. What an incovenience.
