The Flex Belt's Contractions: The Flex Belt provides powerful contractions that produce results and these contractions are also very comfortable. The contraction ramps up slowly, holds the contracted stomach muscles for a couple of seconds and then slowly releases. The Flex Belt comes with an adjustable intensity that goes from 1— It also has 10 different programs so users have the advantage to work their muscles in multiple ways.

The Contour Belt's Contractions: The Contour Belt also provides contractions, but in our opinion they are not as comfortable. We find them to be rather harsh and biting. There is no smooth ramp up function — it contracts very quickly and abruptly.

The Contour Belt has an intensity that goes from 1— It also has many different programs for the user to choose between. Here is a comparison video that The Flex Belt produced to show how users who have never tried either The Flex Belt or The Contour Belt reacted to each of the products design, ease of use and the contractions: The Flex Belt's Social Community: The Flex Belt has a nice following on Facebook and Twitter. At the time of this review, there are over 25, fans on Facebook and over 26, followers on Twitter.

We appreciate that this means their customers like the product and want to stay in touch with the community that uses it. We also like The Flex Belt's voice and how they positively interact with their fans. They even offer a weekly giveaway contest on Facebook, as well as special promotions and also post a lot of fun pictures Check them out on www. They have thousands of subscribers to their channel page and at the time of his review over 3 million video views!!!

Check them out and all their videos here: From what we can tell The Contour Belt doesn't have much of an online community. At the time of this review, they have yet to break 1, followers on Twitter, yet they actually follow more people than they have followers! That is not the sign of a brand that has a community with customers interested in staying in touch with them. Check out their numbers here: The same goes for Facebook — they have very little fans — just over and there is not much going on with their page — they really don't do anything as you can see here: And same goes for YouTube — they have had only a few hundred thousand video views and less than subscribers to their channel page: We would say that Contour has a weak community presence overall.

On the official Flex Belt website they literally have thousands of testimonials from their customers. The page is honestly endless with positive feedback from their thousands of satisfied customers.

A product really needs to be good in order for their customers to take their valuable time to write and send them a testimonial. Read through some of these testimonials here: In addition to the thousands of sincere customer testimonials, there are a ton of amazing and impressive Before and After pictures.

There must be at least a hundred on their home page. Check them out at the official Flex Belt website www. On the official Contour Belt website there are also some testimonials.

At the time of this review, we see only about 11 what they call 'success stories'. Not as impressive as the thousands on The Flex Belt website, but at least some is better than none.

They also have a handful of Before and After pictures We see about 11 that go along with their success stories. Again — not the endless amount we see on The Flex Belt's site, but at least they have some satisfied customers.

At the time of this review, we actually didn't see any celebrities using The Contour Belt on their official website. However they did on the home page have a video of who looked to be retired football player Ben Sims from the Minnesota Vikings.
