The Ab-Doer was developed by Thane International Inc. and promises to replace traditional crunches and sit-ups. It is a small machine that claims to mimic the movement of an upright machine, strengthen and tone the abdominal muscles and reduce the size of the users waist. The Ab-Doer can be used by both men and women and by people of almost all fitness levels. It claims that most other abdominal machines on the market only tone and strengthen the muscles and do not decrease the size of the waist, but it can. This machine boasts that it will flatten the stomach, cinch the waistline and eliminate love handles in a matter of weeks without putting stress on the spine like traditional abdominal and core exercises may do.

Product Features

The Ab-Doer features a padded seat so that users can remain comfortable throughout their entire workout. The Ab-Doer also includes a DVD (specifying six-pack attack, fat blast and back and spine conditioning), and instruction manual and a nutrition plan. This machine boasts and ergonomic design that allows users to take the pressure off their spine while exercising. This machine also comes with a nutrition plan so users can develop better eating habits as they tone and strengthen their abdominal and core muscles.

Advantages

  • Money back guarantee.
  • This machine allows users to gain flexibility in their lower back.
  • The Ab-Doer claims to be easy to put together and requires no tools for assembly.
  • The machine folds down flat so that it can be stored easily.
  • The Ab-Doer includes a massage roller that offers a gentle back massage while users are exercising.
  • This machine claims to eliminate the need for traditional crunches and sit-ups.
  • The Ab-Doer claims to provide an aerobic workout as well as a toning and strengthening workout at the same time.
  • This machines claims the ability to trim, tone and strengthen the lower and upper abdominal muscles, the lower back muscles and the obliques.

Disadvantages

  • The Ab-Doer does not help users tone other areas of the body.
  • Though this machine does promise an aerobic workout, it will not be effective enough for those seeking major weight loss.
  • The Ab-Doer may not be able to accommodate those with significant weight to lose.
  • This machine may not be ideal for those with spinal injuries.
  • This machine relies on the user’s drive and willpower, so if you’ve had problems losing weight via exercise in the past then this might not be for you.

Conclusion

The Ab-Doer doesn’t really stand out from the rest of the abdominal exercise equipment available today. If you’re focused on your abs, it could be a good choice but ab toning doesn’t necessarily lead to instant weight loss. There is no absolute evidence to prove that this machine will work for everyone. Users will need to assess their health and fitness goals and decide if using the Ab-Doer is right for them.

    As the reviewer said it is about will power and what you put into it. I do 15 minutes of intense exercises and it does trim your waist. I’ve lost 5 lbs using it but definitely not for significant weight loss…not aerobic enough.

    I bought the abdoer twist about 2 yrs. ago it works well if you use it daily for about 30mins and go walking too and of course eat smart. My problem with it is that they use poor quality steel for the spring. I went through about 3 of them cause they break at the bottom. They are replaced free of charge for a year but you have to pay the shipping costs. I finally got tired of this so I quit using it. Now, I’m hoping they have improved the spring and plan to get back on it after I do some research on the spring.I have also read a few posts talking about the same problem, Good Luck with yours. Oh,go to to Youtube,you might find the additional information you are looking for.

    I purchased an ABDOER maybe 2 years ago and since have been diagnosed with Spina Bifida and can not use the machine at all, is there a way I can return it for a refund? It has only been used maybe 3 or 4 times because of my health. I tried to sell it just before I went to the hospital again for 3 more surgeries, but was unable to sell it. Can you help? If so, I’ll need a return label(prepaid hopefully) and something to put it in as I no longer have the original box.

    Thank you,

    Hey guys. I’ve been using the AB DOER TWIST for a little over a year now! All, I have to say is WOW, my energy level has increase, I’ve never had good posture, my arms are feeling stronger, I could go on and on. This is the very best and for me easier way to exercise. I’m feeling so great, certainly not feeling like I’m almost 56 years old. My family, friends, and even my doctor have commented on how good I look. My kids asked me if I’ve grown taller.

    Bought the abdoer twist in Dec 2010 with tension bars, bands, etc. Hubby & I liked it so much, we found a new one on craigslist.com for $80 so we could exercise together. I am 5’0″ so it works for shorter people, and also had back fusion; my husband was 350+ and is now down to 270 (he also does other cardio). Haven’t had any pins falling out or shavings as of yet. Feel it is a fun way to get started on toning abdominals and strengthen back muscles.

    I bought the Abdoer 12/10 and love it, except it started making noise doing core pivots and the main #1 pin keeps peeling off shavings of metal and it falls out. I called Customer Service and they told me no one is having problems with this.They will send a new bracket for 11.90 for shipping and handling. I feel they should replace it.
    I asked if there was anyone else I could talk to about the problem, she said no.
    Disappointed, and will never purchase again from the company.

    I posted on FB that I was going to get an Ab Doer Twist. I do have some minor back problems but I am wanting to lose weight and inches and get rid of the love handles that I have the hardest time trying to get rid of. I can’t do crunches without my back hurting. My friends are deterring me from purchasing this machine. I need/want to know if I will be making a good investment if I purchase the Ab Doer Twist. I want honest answers because I want to make sure that my purchase is worth the time and money.

    I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.My ab doer is about 6 month old and already L have two pins falling out.yhe one on top that hold the bar in place I replace myself and the one on the bottom that hold the back in place I have to keep stopping to make sure that it not coming out.I contact the company about 3 or 4 time and they kept telling me some one will get back to you but they never did.The last time I call I ask for a supervisor.He said that he will send me the pin out but it going to cost me shipping and handling.After telling he as must money I pay for this thing and it only about 6 months old I should have to pay for anything and i wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone.Plus there is a medle washer that fall out from where I don’t know and the rubber on the back thing is wearing off.My advice save your money.

    We bought this contraption 3 weeks ago and I love it. My husband and I are 58 and we both feel so much better from using this daily. We have more flexability and have lost inches and some poundage. This is just a fun way to move. I recommend it and you will get out of this what you routinely put into it.

    I purchased an Ab-Doer about 6 months ago from a thrift shop after seeing the infomercial for the Ab-Doer Twist. I paid a whopping 14.95 for and I can definitely say it was the BEST 14.95 I’ve ever spent. I don’t use the Ab-Doer exclusively to lose weight but as a core-toning exercise. I’m 6’2″ and weigh in at 233. Six months ago I weighed in at 265. What the Ab-Doer allows is the ability to work the mid-section without laying on the floor attempting sit-ups. I will say, I wouldn’t mind having a Ab-Doer Twist but right now it isn’t in the budget. If there are others who feel the same way, I have a suggestion, visit your local Goodwill or Salvation Army and pick up one of the original Ab-Doers.

    TODAY: I’m out the $244.36 (includes shipping and taxes), my Authorized Return freight of $31.15 and the Ab-Doer Twist Machine.

    I tried the Ab-Doer Twist for three weeks. Decided it was not for me since I am flexible. When I called for a “Return Authorization,” Customer Service offered me a 50% discount NOT to return the machine. I declined the discount preferring to return the machine.

    I have called three times (my green USPS signature card verified receipt; unfortunately, it was inside my stolen purse). I spoke to a Customer Service Manager. After verifying the 50% was that was originally offered with several representatives. He stated that it was now outside the time frame so it would not be honored (30-days from purchase, which was wrong since my “purchase-offer” was 60-days or money back). Later in our conversation he said, “We would never offered 50%. The most we would offer is 25%.”

    BEWARE: Make sure you get a USPS tracking number (a keep it filed in a safe place; otherwise, I have a suspicion that this company’s policy is to deny all product returns so they can keep billing. An unethical but technically legal business strategy. Hopefully this is my final infomercial purchase.

    I just got my abdoer today and I am 5’11” and it works perfect for my height. I put the pin in the top hole. My son tried it and he’s 6’1″ he had to move the roller down some to fit him but the rest is okay. So far I feel a good burn so I hoping this really works. It does tire your arms out but since I just started, I am sure I will get use to it. Plus I need to strengthen my arms.

    Does anyone know the weight and height limits on the Abdoer Twist? It is difficult for me to excercise because of arthritis, bulging discs, sciatica etc. I want to excercise and need to find something I can do seated. The Abdoer Twist sounds like it will be a good alternative. I only hesitate because of the cost as I am on disability and my income is very limited. I know that excercise can be of great help to me, but I don’t know if this is the “one” for me. Does anyone feel they could recommend or not recommend the Abdoer Twist for my situation? Details please! Thanks!

    I appreciate Terrie’s comments. I may be a tad overweight, but I don’t see it as a problem. For years (I am now 74) I have used a French assisted push-up machine for upper body fitness and I have spent a few minutes a day running on a mini tramp, not every day. I bought the abdoer because I hoped it might save me from complaining and wingeing about my back as I get older. Early indications are favourable. Some recommend a balance ball as the best core exercise tool. Perhaps if I were 20 years younger. No promises but I will try and keep you posted.

    If one had bad knees and joints, which makes it difficult to do normal exercises, do lengthy walks, or jog, would this machine help me lose weight with a special eating plan like the Atkins diet. Would appreciate any comments or advice.

    I just purchased the Ab Doer Twist and have been using it. I have bad knees and ankles and wrists, and I can do this! Feels amazing even hours after a workout. Do get the rods and tri-roller and resistance bands and extreme workout DVD in your initial order, or they have mega unresonable shipping charges on your next non-machine order. Watch out for their tricky web site. They will offer you the trial without paying $14.95 for the privilage if you hit ’4 payments’ and then switch to one payment when asked. But be careful and make sure there aren’t two machines on your order afterwards. They will offer faster delivery for a 10 dollar fee, don’t pay it. Mine arrived in four days anyway. Thane seems shifty, but the machine is wonderful!

    [Reply]

    Wendy

    I thought it was just me, for the web site switching it back to the one payment plan. Mine around in around 4-5 days. I ordered the robs and the resistants band and the shipping is rediculace .

    Cindy

    I have really bad knees and back. I’ve been using the Abdoer Twist for 3 weeks and the difference in my back is unbelievable. I do the movements slower than the video, though. I was shocked after 2 weeks to find that I lost 4″ in my waist! I hope I continue to lose inches. Because of my knees I am unable to go for walks or use other exercise equipment, but the Abdoer is perfect, probably because you do it in a sitting position. I concentrate mostly on the intermittent DVD, but have done the advance twice so far and realize I’m not really ready for that yet. I actually sweat when I use this machine. I think it’s well worth the investment.

    If a person don’t like the equipment due to customer service,that’s their business and their feedback. It’s all a part of the product. If they want to sell the product,then they should improve on their customer service. It certainly made me think twice before purchasing.

    I was ready to call and order the Twist…but, after the lady expressed problems with shipping mistakes and billiing mistakes, I’m not going there. I have no time for a company that makes a mistake and makes me eat the cost of the mistake.
    To each their own opinion but life is too short too deal with unnecessary crap.

    I would encourage anyone to use the Ab Doer, even one of the erlier models. I was recently transplanted with a new heart and liver and my recovery was shortened by months as a result of using the Ab doer pryer to surgery. I was only in the hospital for 21 days and I resumed my ab doer routine two weeks later. I have been using one for 8 yrs now, I wore out the first one and my Ab doer Extreem just broke at the base of the spring as I was arching backwards (close call)! I feel the best results I’ve seen is my overall core strength, increased range of motion and flexibility. I have recommeded this machine to everyone. Only one negetive remark, Improvements are needed where the handle bar attaches to the swivle at the top of the spring. It is metal to metal and and the handle bars slips of center. It could use a bushing to reduce the friction there. I am currently looking to purchae the Ab Doer Twist model.

    Thanks.

    you said when your abdoer had broke at the base of the spring while arching backwards, the you typed close call. Does that mean it could have been a fatal Injury? Just asking because i do not want anything that can stab me in my back …. Thanks

    I have the old Ab-Doer and need a replacement spring and cover. Where can I find them?

    [Reply]

    Jocelyn

    Hi Valerie,
    I don’t know if you have already gotten your replacement spring and cover, but if you haven’t then you might look on the machine itself for either a phone number or address. I had a similar problem with another machine and sent a letter explaining what I needed to replace and they sent me back a list of replacement parts along with the parts I needed FREE. The companies want your repeat business so they are very accommadating. Hope this helps.

    The Abdoer is wonderful. I owned the first Abdoer which came out about 12 years ago. I actually wore it out last year. I just bought the Abdoer Twist from Home Shopping Network on a payment plan. If you are trying to lose a lot of weight, you should do other cardio workouts. But if you want to tone up waist muscles and strengthen your back and upper hip muscles, then this machine is for you. I like the fact that it keeps my whole waist and upper hips stretched out. I had knee surgery in 2007 and I could not use it for 4 months and 3 months prior to the surgery. I began having this lower back aches and kind of a tired feeling in that area. I coulkd not wait to get the Ok from my doctor so I could use this again. If you want to lose weight, walk for forty five minutes every day at a good speed. I guarantee you will lose about 8 to 10 pounds a month provided you eat sensibly. I dropped every bit of 40 pounds in four months.
