Wonder Core Smart is a small resistance-based exercise machine that the makers claim focuses on your core (i.e. your abs) with “laser-like” precision. They say you can use it in 8 different ways to get in the best shape of your life and have the 6-pack abs you’ve always wanted.
Wonder Core Smart appears to be the replacement for Wonder Core, a larger exercise machine, as both share the same URL. Is this version really “smarter?” Let’s take a look…
The Wonder Core Smart Pitch
Wonder Core Smart is aimed at those folks with a little extra around the middle, who are probably sitting on the couch eating a snack when this commercial comes on. They show beautiful models with washboard tummies and promise you can have them too, if you just use this machine. Wonder Core Smart is touted by Julie Weisman who claims to be a core fitness expert and celebrity trainer. It also features testimonials and photos from real people who say they have used Wonder Core Smart to get toned, but there is no way to independently verify their claims.
How Wonder Core Smart Works
Wonder Core Smart is essentially a padded seat with 2 moving arm/legs, also covered in padding. They state there is a hidden spring on each side that you can adjust with a knob to change resistance levels from 24-48 lbs.
Depending on how you sit, stand, or lie upon Wonder Core Smart, the makers claim you can do:
- Sit Ups/Crunches
- Push Ups
- Scissor Kicks
- Ab Tucks
They add this also works your cardio (aka heart). A DVD with 2 35-minute workouts and exercise guide are included with your Wonder Core Smart which provide further instructions.
Wonder Core Smart Will Cost You:
$114.70. You can pay in 5 payments of $19.95 (plus $14.95 shipping/handling) but if you pay in full at time of order, they give you a 3-year extended warranty. Otherwise, you have 60 days to try Wonder Core Smart, and if it doesn’t give you the abs that they promise in the infomercial, they say you can return it for your money back (minus the initial S&H and what it costs to ship back).
Bottom Line: is Wonder Core Smart a Scam?
Wonder Core Smart is the latest ab-centric exercise machine to hit the airwaves. We like that it’s compact and has 3-year warranty, even if it means paying for it in full. We don’t like that there is no information about the company behind Wonder Core Smart, so one can only “wonder” if they’ll be in business for that long.
This machine does seem to give a full-body workout, including cardio. Since it’s so new, there aren’t any reliable online consumer reviews about its durability. What we do know about any exercise machine is that they will help you firm, tone, and lose weight only if you use them regularly, along with a healthy diet. Otherwise, your abs may indeed be toned, but they’ll still be hidden under a layer of fat!
