I was doing my usual thing of going through top sellers for fitness and weight loss on amazon and come across this odd looking machine that immediately stood out to me and I just had to do a WonderCore Review.
By all accounts, this is selling very well and has pretty good feedback so what is this odd looking contraption all about will it tone your core up? Will it help you lose weight?
I’d like to say that I haven’t used this nor do I intend to it costs £79.99 for something you could do pretty much do free!
When I say the name out loud I picture some cheesy salesman on the shopping channel pitching the amazing benefits of this over and over whilst a timer is ticking down, I mean come on WonderCore.
I can only assume their target market is middle aged ladies as the name and product info is worded in a way to attract that market.
This definitely isn’t a scam but in my eyes is very faddy and will be in the fitness junk pile before the end of the year.
I want to have a look at some of the “wonder” claims this machine makes and see if it lives up to their claims
Take a look below at what Thane (the makers) say about their product on Amazon.
The WonderCore Smart from Thane is a revolutionary 6 in 1 fitness product designed to target your whole core. Focusing on your upper, middle and lower abs, and your oblique’s! To give you the ultimate total body core shaping and toning work out!
The WonderCore Smart has been proven to be so effective and will help you to achieve your goals and get the sexy six pack abs you’ve always wanted! With this absolutely versatile fitness tool, giving you endless possibilities to be fit. You could experiment and create your own exercises.
The secret is in WonderCore Smart’s ingenious patented design. It has cleverly hidden interlocking springs and precision dials on each side that gives adjustable resistance, producing an amazing 10kg to 21kg of resistance on each side! The resistance allows you to work in both directions on each and every rep! So there’s no wasted time or effort as your muscles are going through the entire range of motion, giving you an fantastic total core workout.
It doesn’t matter if you’re big or small, young or old, with WonderCore Smart you can choose the exact workout that you want to do. Best of all its compact and easily folds up to be stored away just about anywhere. Another great thing is you can take it with you and get the workout that you want! anywhere and any time!
The WonderCore Smart combines six great exercises such as sit ups, pushups, bridge, scissor kicks, forearm and biceps and finally triceps. It can help you achieve the desired shape with an appropriate diet it will become an effective way to lose weight.
It’s ironic that this machine is called WonderCore as it does nothing for your core but can provide a great arm workout, I hate the name and the way it’s been marketed as it could have been done in a better way!
It claims it can work the upper, middle, lower abs plus the obliques…… it provides the same range of motion as the exercise would if you took it away its useless for core, in fact, it makes it easier if anything which could be great for some, but there are beginners exercises you can do for free.
Claim 2, get the sexy six pack abs you have always dreamed of…… REALLY? I don’t think so! you’re never gonna see any abs unless you fix your diet, doing endless assisted crunches WILL NOT reveal your sexy six pack.
Claim 3, endless possibilities to be fit…… HOW? Let’s take a moment to define what “fit” really means, there are 5 components of fitness.
- Cardiorespiratory Fitness – very limited but you can up your fitness with certain exercises but your body will be used to it in a matter of weeks
- Muscular Strength – Unless you’re extremely weak this machine won’t make you stronger and again you will outgrow this within weeks
- Muscular Endurance – Again will outgrow within weeks and unless your extremely unfit you will need to spend a long time doing the exercises
- Flexibility – Not at all
Body Composition – Nope won’t change this either, it targets very small muscles so calorie burn won’t be very high, you will never see any tonnage if you’re overweight to start with
As you can see it doesn’t have unlimited possibilities to make you fit, this product has been marketed very well and it will have an extremely short lifespan.
I don’t want to completely beat this product up as it does have a place for some people if you need to do light exercise and really unfit then this could be good for a month or so to assist you with getting a bit fitter and more confident.
Last Word on WonderCore Review
You may have gathered by this WonderCore Review I am not a big fan, this seems to me like an evolved ab roller in fact devolved ab roller you will get a much better “core” workout from one.
For £79.99 that could get you 8 months gym membership at some gyms and trust me although it can be a daunting experience, you will see a lot better results!
On the whole most who have bought it does love it and I can’t take that away from them as it’s encouraging a lot of people to do “something” rather than just thinking about doing something
This is something I just don’t feel comfortable recommending and wouldn’t use myself.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this so please leave me a message below
