  • Yes. I love them. You can go forward and backwards in the same workout to use different muscles. I do 5 minutes each way!

  • They work for me! I love them. Use them at the gym all the time, but buying one for my house in a few weeks. Cant wait. :) It helps to tighten/firm my body up very nicely. I can definitely tell the difference in myself when I use one.I would use it 3-5 days per week. Probably 30-60 mins each time.
