The Best Fitness Gear and Gadgets: Core Transformer

Excerpt from Cooking Light Magazine's 2011 article: The Best Fitness Gear and Gadget's, features the flat abs, total body and belly fat blasting workout CORE TRANSFORMER Kit created by Linda LaRue, RN MEd, ATC, Creator of Crunchless Abs.

We tested this years’ most interesting and most effective fitness gear. Here’s our round-up of the exercise tools that are guaranteed to help you reach your fitness goals. By Myatt Murphy, author of The Ultimate Dumbbell Guide.

Why we like it: It may look like another over-hyped TV exercise product, but this unique—and economical—fitness tool definitely burns calories. The X-shaped stretch cord device straps onto both of your feet and hands, adding resistance to your arms and legs, no matter what direction you move them (forward, backward, to the side, and so on). The DVD offers three, intense routines—ranging from 20, 40, to 60 minutes long—but we found it was just as effective at making many yoga, Pilates, and core training exercises a lot more challenging and effective.
