Fitness has always been tiring yet an important thing. A fit body plays a vital role in our overall physical and mental well-being. However, despite being necessary, physical toil (and some other complications as well) is something that keeps it away from us.
To lessen the toil of physical work, EMS (Electrical muscle stimulation) has become a thing nowadays and in the field of EMS, Flex Belt is a well-known name.
The Flex Belt is an FDA-certified EMS belt that works on improving the abs of your body. However, in this write-up, we won’t be doing a review, instead, we will talk about some of the most commonly witnessed issues and their possible solutions. We will also talk about some queries and try to clear them. So, if you own a Flex Belt and facing some problems, you’re in the right place.
Without wasting any more time, let’s dive in.
Flex Belt Troubleshooting and Fixing the Errors
Flex Belt Controller Not Working Properly Or It’s Beeping
There can be quite a lot of reasons behind this. Such as-
1. The battery maybe isn’t fully charged. So, make sure it’s in 100% battery full condition.
2. The controller may not be accurately connected to the belt. So keep on pushing it into the holster of the belt until you get the flush which indicates that it is properly connected.
3. Don’t forget to check if the plastic papers are pulled off from the sides of the pads.
4. Under the gel pads, there are metal studs and if these studs are unclean, the belt won’t work properly. Make sure to clean them up.
5. If the gel pads aren’t properly placed, the belt won’t function. That’s why make sure to place them in the correct manner.
6. Check if the gel pads are worn out or not. Because if they are, you will have to go with replacing the old gel pads with new ones.
Problems With The Drive
Any form of problem with the drive of the belt is pretty complex to fix whether it’s broken or any other problem. In most cases, the drive breaks and creates hazards or makes it impossible to use the belt. So, if your face any form of issues with the drive replace the old piece of drive with new ones.
The Middle Pad Is Not Working
This is another mostly faced problem. Actually, this isn’t a problem. Because increasing the intensity will fix it.
The thing is, the middle gel pad of the Flex Belt requires more intensity. So, if the intensity is less than 30, you won’t feel anything.
That’s why to get the outcome of the middle pad, you need to increase the intensity to such a level that is challenging but comfortable to bear.
Now that we have talked about some of the problems of the Flex Belt, let’s get to know about some of the common queries that people have and their measures.
The Error Codes
There are some error codes that people come across. Some of them are E002, E003, and E004. We will get to know about them in short.
E002 Error Code:
This E002 error code means that there is something wrong with the controller of the Flex Belt. To fix this turn off the controller and turn it on again. If the problem is still there, you may need to replace the controller or go with another measure. So, call a professional in this regard.
E003 and E004 Error Code:
These two error code indicates that there is something wrong with the internal components. That’s why you’ll have to reach out to a professional to fix that.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is The Flex Belt Recommend For People With Heart Problems?
Well, the answer is subjective. Usually, it’s not recommended for people who had a heart attack or have heart problems. Because prescribing exercise to people with heart problems or prior heart attack problems is a bit sensitive. They need to go from light to moderate levels of exercise.
If you use the Flex Belt and go with high intensity, there is a chance that you’ll have to go through a portion of time holding your breath and this is a matter of problem for heart patients. Because they can’t or should not hold their breath.
What if a heart patient is already into exercising prescribed by a doctor. Well, in this case, he/she can but only if they go with low-intensity options rather than high-intensity options and if while using the device they won’t have to hold their breath.
Does The Flex Belt Work or Not?
“Does the Flex Belt actually work?” – This is one of the most asked questions. The answer is pretty simple – Yes and No. Yup, both. Let’s get to the explanation.
The thing is, if you think that the Flex Belt works for weight loss, my friend your perception is wrong in this regard as it doesn’t work at all for losing weight.
The EMS actually is here to bring a bit more flexibility in the field of fitness (and in some cases, the field is very specific) but it can’t replace the traditional way of losing weight.
On the other hand, the Flex Belt solely works on the abdominal muscle improving the overall state of it, strengthening the core, etc. It also increases the chance of not getting injured and provides other benefits.
In short, in this part, the outcome is positive but still, it’s very much specific and limited. Though it has FDA certification, there are quite a lot of rational conditions behind this decision which you can easily check on the internet.
So, if weight loss is your concern, this product doesn’t work. On the contrary, if you want to improve your abdominal muscle and need a bit more flexibility, it works.
Can The Flex Belt Seal Fix Treadmill Belts?
Well, it’s pretty hard to answer. Because there is no guarantee that you can fix your treadmill belts with the Flex Belt seal. You may give it a shot but there is no surety if it will work or not.
