The reason I like the Ab Lounge is that it gives my head and neck the support I seem to require vs. doing ab exercises on a mat on the floor where I'm prone to wrongly using my head and neck to "assist." For me ab work is torturous and the Ab Lounge is the "spotter" I need to help prevent cheating.
Not sure if they're still being sold?? I would suggest the more expensive mesh fabric Ab Lounge instead of the cheaper blue canvas that I purchased, simply because I think it would be somewhat cooler (temperature-wise) to work out with. Also I listen to favorite music while using the Ab Lounge!

I work out late at night, and see the same other late-night exercisers at my gym over and over. It seems to be the norm, at ALL the fitness centers I've gone to, to NOT MAKE EYE CONTACT when one is exercising, and definitely to NOT TALK to other exercisers...like we're each in our own private bubble. But since there's such a small, regular group at Snap in the late hours, I've started saying HI to people, and smiling. Let's POP that antisocial bubble, and generate some community and support!
I am finding that morning exercise is motivational! I get up in the morning with my husband, get him off to work and then I walk SuzieQ. I bring her in the house and go for MY walk, come in, do 50 situps on the ab lounge and then go to the "quiet/exercise" room and do my strength training or a yoga DVD. I find I feel better during the day and my exercise has already been done so I can concentrate on other things during the day . . schooling 41 I am slowly getting there . .
