OK, here's the thing, I was in the market to get an Ab Lounge Chair, Heard some good things about them, So I seen this website advertising the Ab shaper, Claiming it was better then the Ab lounge as it came with the bicycle attachement ect, Well, This chair is GARBAGE, the only good thing about it is it comes assembled. You only need to attach the foot sapport and bicyle attachment and the tension cords. When sitting on the chair for starters it grinds, you get the feeling it is gonna snap any minute, Then alignment for the foot and bicycle attachment are so off it's a really struggle to get them on, and once you do get one or the other on, you sure don't want to have to remove to put the other on, as your looking at another work out all together. This is not an item I would recommend to anyone! With the problems I had I didn't even use it long enough to see if it was effective.
