Verified Purchase
I was very hesitant to purchase this machine. I at first was going to purchase an ab circle but went with the ab glider instead because of the negative complaints stated a/b the circle. The ab glider however, had very little reviews so I decided to be a test dummy and take the plunge.

Delivery:
Our package took an obvious beating during shipping. We were concerned that some parts may have been damaged. Fortunatley only the box suffered damages.

Set up:
Assembling the machine took a/b an hour. It was not strenuous nor did I need extra hands to help.

Durability:
my husband and I have both been using this machine for a week now and everything about it is sturdy.

Ease of use:
I'm 5'7 1/2, my husband is 6'. For me the machine does wonders for my obliques and my arms (per different excercies on dvd). For those that say they do not feel the work out for their abs I'd suggest correcting your posture. If your not positioned correctly you'll feel the burn elsewhere except where you want it. Due to my height, I don't get much workout when I do the core crunches on the machine. Neither does my husband. Why? b/c the semi circle slope does not give us leeway to properly do the excercise. My husband and I both however get a great work out for our obliques and those Lower core stomach muscles that are hardest to target effectively.

Why 4 stars not 5?
This machine would have been great if the manufacturer did some minor adjustments. A knee cup/ or knee pads would have been a nice comfort. Also, the handle bars should have been made adjustable. This machine is great for anyone between 5' to 5'5 otherwise it's simply to "small" for bigger people... too restricting for the range of motion you would require for a GREAT ab workout.

I see that the owner of Proform has provided commentary just prior to mine. I hope he can explain whether the company has recently reduced the length of the Ab Glider handlebars? I was banking on this product. Before buying it, I just couldn't see how it could NOT work to tighten my abdomen. I bought the Ab Glider after repeatedly watching the commercials and reading the glowing reviews. When it arrived and I finally got it assembled and working smoothly, I was shocked to find that the handlebars are at least a foot shorter than in the commercials and as pictured on the box. This throws off the total ergonomics of the unit, making it impossible to pull up with the abdomen without leaning completely into the small handlebars--an awkward and tiresome maneuver that stresses the back far, far more than the abdomen. Because the small handlebars force me to lean into them, I am not provided the leverage to pull up at the abdomen, so I feel no stress or soreness in the abdomen at all after trying to 'exercise."

The machine does not allow for adjustment of the handlebars--neither to raise, nor pull them closer to the body. I've seen others on the Web with this same problem so I know I'm not alone. This is particularly frustrating because I know that if the handlebars were as tall as in the commercials and on the box, I could get a terrific workout.

I'm about to have the unit disassembled to return, but would be very happy just to get a set of the same longer handlebars that are featured in the commercials and in the ads. I'll put them on myself. By the way, I'm average height--not particularly tall or short, so I'm not able to understand why the handlebars should be a problem. Has the owner tested this product with a few different heights and body types?

Well i got this the other day so i thought i would add my 2 cents.
Set up was not too bad, but would have been better if one of the Allen head bolts was not defective. Sounds bad but it was just a minor hassle. The device seems fairly rugged & sound. I am about 6'1 186 lbs and it seems like its a little too easy or something. Yet after using it just a little i could feel a burn in places my other equipment was not accessing. And in places i did not expect, like in my triceps. But that was because i was doing it "wrong" by pulling with my arms rather than contracting ab muscle. I think i like the Ab Glider, using this in conjunction with my other equipment will make for more comprehensive & complete workout.
I Feel it is value priced, as other comparable contraptions sell for much more or they dont do as much. This one works you side to side as well as up & down. I think this will help strengthen my back as well as abs & arms ....so yeah....whats not to like ?

Addnote - After posting my review, my attention was drawn to the review below mine... & could not help but notice the parallel in our perspective opinion on the Pro Form. And that the reviewers opinion is apparently negated due to his position of company ownership he enjoys.
Are you kidding me ? You people should be ashamed of yourselves for holding a mans success against him. Apparently If i were to someday "make it big" & produce quality products for public consumption, i am not allowed to speak my mind or be held in public contempt. How absurd. Well it is my opinion that He must be an honorable man composed of substantial character. As from my perspective all he did was tell the truth. I find his review to be spot on . And personally, i am grateful to this guy for making a quality piece of equipment i can afford.
