Ab Coaster Deluxe, Workout Video and Instruction Manual.
The Ab Coaster Deluxe uses a padded seat on a track system for abdominal workouts. The user places knees on the padded seat while holding onto the handlebars. The track system allows the seat to move on an upward arc, much like a knee lift, to isolate abdominal muscles. There is no back support attached to the padded seat. In order to move the padded seat, the user must have upper body strength. Maintaining proper form may be difficult for overweight or obese dieters.
The Ab Coaster Deluxe has a weight limit of 350 pounds; higher than most other abdominal machines. Despite the higher weight limit, the machine focuses on one of the smallest muscle groups in the body. Abdominal workouts do not typically increase heart rate or metabolism, though the Ab Coaster Deluxe may prove to offer more than just an abdominal workout based on the lower body requirements to move the padded seat.
The marketing video for the AB Coaster Deluxe shows before and after photos from real life people who have used the machine to lose weight and trim their waistline. None of the users was extremely overweight when they started using the Ab Coaster Deluxe.
In addition to selling the Ab Coaster Deluxe, the official website suggests a supplement for additional weight loss support. The supplement is Metabolize by Simple Health. There is no ingredient list, but the dieter agrees to an auto-ship plan when they make the initial order.
