When I was contacted by the people at Slendertone and asked whether I’d like to take part in their 30-Day Slendertone Challenge it never occurred to me that I’d probably have to post a pic of my burgeoning gut in order to show whether it actually works.
Frankly, it’s not what you’d call my most appealing feature. Post-Christmas, I have a belly button that’s not quite what you’d call taught. Actually, it’s so deep it’s more or less a bodily Bermuda Triangle which may, I suspect, hold the answer to where that Oyster card vanished to several weeks ago. I have included it here in glorious black and white, because everything looks better in black and white right?
But anyway, I’m nothing if not a good sport and I accepted the challenge partly because I started 2012 with a desire to get in shape, lose a little weight (I have no intention of being a client of Rigby & Peller so the moobs have got to go too) and to be a little less sedentary. Using the Premium Slendertone Abs belt is just one part of the jigsaw puzzle, helping out when deadlines get in the way and I don’t get time to do the exercise I’d like.
Over the next four weeks I’ll be updating you on how I get on with it (i know, lucky you). The new belt itself has been designed to give the best possible workout and a twenty minute session is meant to be the equivalent of 120 sit-ups – probably as many as I’ve done, ever. As somebody who generally abhors gym culture but who still wants to be in decent shape this is quiet a promise.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not not expecting Men’s Health cover-model abs but well, let’s see what happens. The instruction booklet has been read, the gel pads are attached, the battery is charged. May toning commence…
