I have been thrown off of the ab circle pro three times now in the short time i have used it. I already have a lot of medical problems and loved the ab circle cause it seemed less strenuous and more relaxed to do. Well i was in for a surprise when i have landed flat on my back on my floor thrown off more than once. Today i got thrown off and really hurt my knee and back. I would like to get a refund of the full purchase price don't still have reciept but bought it about three months ago. Also i would like to let people know before they get seriously injured on it. Also i am sorry but as far as weightloss in 3 mins a day it doesn't happen i have had three kids and until i started using lipozene i didn't lose a pound on the ab circle sorry but it doesn't really make your body look anything like the model they paid to do the videos. Very disappointed and i will be getting rid of it in the trash since i don't feel safe giving or selling to anyone else that would be wrong knowing how dangerous and untruthful of a product it is. Thank you i look forward to hearing more back to take care of this.
I have purchased the Ab circle Pro and it's almost pretty imposible to use as the noise it makes is too loud, my husband looked at it and said it's the rollers and bearings, i don't think the amount of use it has had and time frame I have owned it that it should be happening also i think it could be dangerous to keep using it.I have read a lot of complaints and they have set up a phone number so as you can obtain free wheels/bearings but it is not an Australian number
Hoping I can get these free parts, as I said it shouldn't be happening
I wanted one of these machines real bad so my parents got me a ab circle pro the 2nd time I had ever used it I fell face first The top of the machine lifted up and I came tumbling lucky for me I did not seriously get hurt so I thought I would give it another try so I got on it again my knee slipped right out of the knee pad and I fell again this time having minor bruising to my knee their again lucky that I had no serious injuries THEY ARE DANGEROUS AND SHOULD NOT BE SOLD
Purchased an Ab Circle Pro and within a few weeks the roller wheels fell to pieces. The UK DISTRIBUTOR didn't want to know as I hadn't filled the warrantie form in on line. What a cop out they must get out of loads of warranties like this. Lucky I ve found an outfit on the web called abcircleprorollers.co.uk I have purchased some upgrade rollers from them and what a difference loads better than the originals Im very impressed with them.
Well I first got hurt when I received the machine as my knees slipped off the knee rest and I hurt my left breast. I had a bruise and pain for about a month but I really thought it was fault. As I kept slipping with minor injuries, I called the company and asked what was going on. I was told that there was a defect on the roller and that they would srend me knee pads and new rollers. Also the red pan of the machine is metal and it has corroded so as I go around the rollers go in there and get rough...
As soon as I received the new stuff I changed the rollers, which was not easy and alsdo put the pads on the knee rest. The pads really did not help much but I kept doing it and holding very tight not to slip and get hurt again. I really had enough tonite though...I slipped totally off and hurt myserlf again this time I feel off the machine and hurt my back and knees and toes... Sounds like the kids song...but was very painfull.
This company is a joke. If you purchase this machine from a private source (craigslist, friends etc, ) don't bother contacting them for replacement parts because they will say since you did not buy it from us (meaning pay full price) there is nothing they can do for you. Its their machine, they could still make money off the parts!
hi, this is santosh dagar from delhi i brought ab circle pro at 1 september but this machine work of 7 days only and after that we are complaining to the dealer to make it in working condition but till now it was not done i call at telebuys shop also to replace the machine they said that wait for 2 days and it will done but after that also there was no action taken i was very disapointed my the company and by their work so plz kindly take any action on it.
I bought the ab circle pro in 2009 for about $300 from danoz direct. Worst $300 I ever spent. I was so excited to get some sweet abs but only lasted 2 sessions before I had sores on my knees! I also nearly cut my finger off when my knee slipped out of the horribly made knee pads! The rollers are grinding away leaving plastic shavings everywhere, it doesn't glide properly. The stoppers are also a waste of time as the machine never stays stationary anyway. How they can sell a machine for $300 that performs so poorly is beyond me. It was a bad idea and the last time I EVER buy a gym machine off the tv.
I have purchased an Ab Circle pro 2010 for £61.74

and later after a month it s rollers use to stucks cause the ring to scratch on which the rollers rolls. After several emails i receive new rollers in 3 months. This really affected my workout and i am not happy with the service. Now when i replace the new rollers its still causing the same problem since day one and rusting the ring more and more. I am sending an atttachment for a clear view. Honestly i am not happy with the product as i feel it will not last long. Kindly if possible please replace it with the Ab Rocket or provide me with any suitable options. I wasnt able to find your website as it says Account Closed at www.via-tv.co.uk. If this query will take long please provide me a refernce number so that i dont have to explain the situation again. Please help me out as its really affecting my workout.
I purchased Ab circle Pro 3 months back.Already the plastic case where in we put our weight has broken due to its low quality and it has become wear and tear.The durability of the product is worste.I suggest please don't buy this.U can see many complaints on the net.Better u do diet and exercise to keep ur body healthy and fit.U can see the reviews with photo in the net.
I finally figured out why my knees hurt so bad in the past few months. It's because of this awful machine. The knee holders are hard plastic and have done a number on me. Wheels only last for three weeks. Then they have grooves that you could hurt yourself if it gets caught on them . I did and then they never get back to you with replacment parts .!!! Dont buy this ! It is poorly put together !!! My husband looked at the broken pieces and found the only thing holding that assembly together, were 3 tiny prongs! The bottom part (which holds the bearings), is heavier than the top, (where the knee pad is attached). Apparently, one of the bearings came out from it's ring. Rattled the tabs till they broke, and sent me flying! they have that girl on TV making the public think this is the best machine you can purchase.
The BBB gives this company an "F" rating...I can see why. I will pursue further, as this is a dangerous product. A great concept, but DANGEROUS!! I don't want anyone else hurt!!!
When working out with the ab circle pro, the knee pad slipped from the knee "bowl" and threw my body over the metal bars causing 2 green board fractures to my humerous. I will always have range of motion limitations and pain when arm is in certain positions that are used to dress or when sleeping.
All it would have taken was a warning of the knee pads slippimg or a velcro strap being attached around the
back of the knee to hold it in the "bowl" to spare me and others from injury, in my opinion.
The photographs speak for me. My arm was black and blue from the internal bleeding for weeks and the pain
A report was taken from an investigator working for the insurance claims department of Readers Digest on Oct 4, 2010. I called the claims department and was told it was just received Oct 28th, 2010. I also told them I want my medical bills paid and to be compensated for pain and suffering.
Others should do the same and update on this website as I am.
I will post to twitter, facebook, my space, linked in and other social sites to let other people with injuries know what they can do to get a remedy for preventable injuries that are life altering! My knee was injured too and I still have trouble when putting any weight on it. (Even getting in bed)
i was working out on this equiptment 7/13/2010 and my knee slipped from the deep cup. I was thrown forward and down on the circle and bar breaking my arm in two places. i am on SSD and have no insurance to get my arm set until August 1st 2010. i called the company and a supervisor said they had no complaints at all untill i called. her name was christine. i also hurt my knee and have pain pills to get me through. i am told i will need surgery to set it but i have to wait because i have no insurance. the corporate is supposed to contact me within 24-48 hours. i have enclosed photograph of my knee and shoulder. the x rays are on a cd if you know how to upload them?
Please stay away from this product. It is the most uncomfortable exercise machine I have ever used. I finally figured out why my knees hurt so bad in the past few months. It's because of this awful machine. The knee holders are hard plastic and have done a number on me. The handle bars are so uncomfortable, I don't knowhow anyone could enjoy this thing. Unfortunately, the other day while I was using it, my knees slid out of the machine. I wasn't going that fast, as it's impossilbe to do with this machine. It is just SO poorly made, that an accident was just waiting to happen. I went to my doctor and upon the initial xray they said it looks like I either severely bruised my fibula (the head of that inserts near the knee) or I cracked the bone. If the pain, which is severe at times, doesn't go away I am getting an mri to determine if it is cracked or not. Of course it happened to my right knee, so driving even 10 minutes gets extremely painful. So upset about this.
Buyer beware. Do yourselves a favor, if you do decide to buy this product do it at Bed, Bath and Beyond. They have the most amazing return policy. No hassle, no problem returns. Be well
I was using the ab circle when the knee pad slipped and I landed on my knee. causing it to swell severly, it was intense pain. It has been several days and I will be going to the ER today because it hasn't gotten any better. It was the single most painful thing I have ever experienced in my life. When I called to complain to the AB Circle, they informed me they had never heard of anything like that happening, but that they would send me new pads with adhesive on the back, as well as new rollers. I find it hard to believe if there are no injurys that they have new pads readily available when a complaint is made. I am not the only person I know that has been injured while exersicing on the ab circle, my girlfriend broke her toe when the pad slipped off and she fell, but that's no where near as serious as my knee.
I purchased the ab circle pro after watching how promising it looked on tv. I bought it from ebay knowing...
I brought the ab circle pro from walmart and after putting it together and using it, I notice that the pads you put in the knee cups would come out and you would have to keep fixing them in. But the fourth time on it and I was swinging from side to side my left knee came out when it did I came down on the machine and hurt my ribs and the best part about it I broke my left big toe who would have thought something like that would have happen so it cost me a doctor visit (twice) and maybe surgery on it. I would like to know from the rest of you that got hurt if you think there will be a class action on this. They need to recall this machine and put the knee pads in the cups. If you read the complaint on it everyone talks about the knee pads.
We ordered an Ab Circle Pro from an internet site and got the machine just fine. A while later one of the rollers went bad and we contacted the company that made the machine and were told that we could not get parts for the machine because we did not order it from their company. I have been trying to find out where we can get replacement rollers for this product.
Would like to get help with this problem. Thanks
My hubby bought the Ab Circle for me, for Christmas. I loved it, and used it until Feb. 9th. That day, the left knee pad, (bowl), came apart. I was on the advanced setting. I flew up into the air on the upswing and my whole left side landed on the unit. Starting with the handlebars to my chest, all the way down, and ending up with both sides of the broken bowl crunching my pelvis.
I went and had x-rays...bruised ribs. My first ever. Could not drive my manual trans. car for 8 days!!!
My husband looked at the broken pieces and found the only thing holding that assembly together, were 3 tiny prongs! The bottom part (which holds the bearings), is heavier than the top, (where the knee pad is attached). Apparently, one of the bearings came out from it's ring. Rattled the tabs till they broke, and sent me flying!

I purchased my Ab Circle Pro 2 days ago and already it has become unusable. Initially I noticed that the left kneepad pivot was attached at a slight angle, unlike the right kneepad. The left kneepad will not swivel while the right pad spins freely. I overlooked this defect and have used it for a few hours now. In this short time, the paint on the frame that comes into contact with the rollers has worn off, and the rollers have now developed flat spots and will not spin. I am not excessively heavy (I weigh 150#) so I think this product was not made to actually be used by human beings.
PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! DO NOT BUY THIS SHAM OF A PRODUCT!!
Purchased the Ab Circle Pro and after putting it together noticed that they had included extra knee pads as a sort of "patch" for knees hitting the bolt that connected the attached pad. Using the extra pads caused the user to slip off of the machine causing possible injury.
After using the machine for a few days my wife and I noticed back pain from using the machine. Visited a Chiropractor who suggested that we stop use of the Ab Circle Pro and the back pain is gone.
My advice is DON'T buy it, and if you have one that you can return then do so immediately. I tried to return mine but as I was 2 weeks past the allowed date they would not help me. So I welcome a class action suit against this product and company ASAP.
Bought this prouduct for Christmas. Can assembled except handels knee pads and counter. In less then 10 minutes of Testing the fiberglass wheels started chunking off leaving deep groves in the red disk. I have never seen a price of exercize equipment fall apart so quick in my life!! Needless to say I returned it to walmart for a full refund of my 223.00 .. Plastic wheels on a plastic disk = friction. I should menchen for those of u with a few pounds to lose. I weight 110 pounds and thought this would just b a good way to tone my abs. There really is no short cut to lose weight or get toned.. Hard work sweat and tears is truly the only way to go.. This product is plastic crap. There is no real service altho they automatic emails are sent out . Telling u to call them with any problems. Unless ur punching in a credit card for an order.. It will hang up on u otherwise . Don't waste ur time or money or gas to return even if u get ur money back!!.. Ps . Walmart costomers.. All books.nuts . Bolts.. And plasic bags are expected for full return :$
I purchased this machine August 2009. I used it for about 2 weeks and the rollers started to "melt", leaving shreds of plastic on my floor. I contacted ab circle pro and they sold me a 3 year warranty for $30.00. they also sent me a new machine. They told me the design of the rollers was bad. The warranty is to cover the machine in full for 3 years. I received my new machine in 10 days. The rollers on the new machine have started to melt. I cannot get thru to customer service to get new rollers that are supposed to be covered under the warranty.
I ordered this item via the internet. Got a card in the mail saying it would be backordered. I received the item about a week later. I NEVER opened the box, as I had been thrown from a horse a few days earlier. My husband is a physical therapist and suggested I DO NOT use the product because of the probability of further injuring myself. After a few weeks, I called the company because they kept billing my credit card. I informed them that I wanted to return the product, but could not do so because I only had a P.O. box. I was given a return authorization number by the CSR I spoke to, but no physical address. UPS and the USPS will not deliver large packages to P.O. boxes. I called back the next day, and was told that I could NOT return the product because it was over 30 days! Why then was I given a RA number to begin with. I was told that the person I spoke to made an obvious mistake! Obvious mistake??? I would not be allowed to return it and still owed $119.85 for it. I contacted my credit card company, and they were also of no assistance. I tried to contact the company again, to try and find out which state they operate out of. Well, it is NOT California. So you can not report them to the California Attorney General's office. You can not get anyone to tell you where their headquarters are located. Can anyone, or does anyone have this information. I am stuck with a brand new, still in the box product, and they want $119.85 even though I can not use it.
