In 2009 and 2010, the Ab Circle Pro was the biggest selling abdominal exercise machine in the world. Until today, it is reported to have sold over 2 million times in the United States, Canada, Britain, Europe, Australia, and even India, among others.
The product was presented by Jennifer Nicole Lee, a famous fitness model who has her own little fitness “empire” comprised of programs, supplements, and fitness products. The Ab Circle Pro was her biggest success to date.
Recently, though Jennifer Nicole Lee announced the release of a new version of her best selling machine: The Ab Circle Mini.
As the name implies, the Mini was designed to mimic the original version of the machine but at a smaller scale. In terms of how these two machines are used and the results they’re supposed to deliver there is really no difference. After all, the original version as well as the new one are marketed as a way to flatten your abs and lose inches with short workouts that can be done at home. This means that if you don’t think the original version works, you won’t find anything really different in how the Mini Circle version works.
The first difference that does exist between the two products is the price. The original Ab Circle Pro costs about $200 while the mini version can be purchased for about $140, a sizable discount. The new price may be one which is more appealing to people who felt they could not afford to buy the original abdominal machine.
The second difference is in the size and weight of the Ab Circle Mini. It is smaller and lighter than the Ab Circle pro. This makes it easier to store and more portable. However, there may be less stability to the machine due to its lightness so you’d need to work slowly with it at first to make sure its stable.
The most important thing was and remains the kind of results you can get with these machines. Both can give you a workout, of that there is no doubt. However, for some people the workout will not be very effective. It seems to be geared more for beginners than for people who are used to exercise regularly.
Whether you choose to get the original version or the mini, be aware that it’s crucial to continue working out the rest of your body and to maintain a healthy diet in order to get any kind of results.
