In terms of weight loss claims, Sport-Elec does not have testimonials to support the product. Weight loss from the center core comes from a mixture of diet and exercise, not use of the product alone. The clinical studies were conducted on various subjects over a wide spectrum of ages and body types with results concluding satisfaction as the main outcome. There are no external links for the clinical study, so the dieter can assume the studies were funded by Sport-Elec. Additional testimonials claimed to strengthen muscles and increase firmness. No results pointed toward weight loss.
The product does have electromagnetic pads within the belt instead of external pads. The only need is the conductivity crème designed for thirty sessions. Thus after thirty sessions, you will now have an additional expense to occur. The Sport-Elec is sold on various e-commerce websites such as Amazon.com for $119.95. Other websites offer a 14-day free trial prior to purchase.
The abdominal muscles are the smallest muscle group. Working this muscle group will not effectively burn enough calories to sustain weight loss. The average 150 pound person burns only 5 calories per minute doing vigorous sit-ups. The same amount of time spent working lower body muscles, such as those worked on an elliptical machine, will burn at least twice as many calories. Claims and testimonials should have provided the dieter with realistic results to achieve their weight loss goals.
