About Ab Orb
Update: Like most things, products have a natural life cycle, and when they outlive their profitability they become "dead," or discontinued. This is a frequent occurrence with "As Seen on TV" products, and it's often the case that the only notice we're given of their passing is an inactive website. With this in mind, as of now it appears that Ab Orb is no longer being offered by the manufacturer.
Manufactured by Product Trend, LLC and based out of Van Nuys, CA, the Ab Orb is a “power wheel” that gives you a total body workout, but especially more chiseled abs. According to the product’s website, you’ll be able to “transform your body with each extension” through more than 50 unique workouts.
Product Trend, LLC holds a B- rating with the Better Business Bureau, which is based on 331 closed complaints within the past three years. From a customer satisfaction standpoint, there aren’t any legitimate reviews available specifically for the Ab Orb, which is likely due to the fact that it is a relatively new product. However, we were able to locate the contract under which the product was designed, as well as the original designer.
How the Ab Orb Works
The Ab Orb is an exercise device that uses a soft “wheel” and hand/foot grips to provide you with a complete, head-to-toe workout, including:
- Upper and lower abs
- …and more!
According to the website, power wheel exercise devices have been shown to be one of the most “effective exercises to activate the abdominal musculature.” The manufacturer also claims that the Ab Orb features the ability to help you complete 50 upper and lower body exercises, while remaining compact for easy storage anywhere.
When purchasing your Ab Orb, you’ll automatically receive an exercise program as a free bonus. If you like, you can also order the knee cushion and nutrition guide for an additional shipping and handling charge (see below for more information).
Ab Orb Pricing & Refund Policy
The Ab Orb currently costs $19.99, plus $5.95 shipping and handling, and can only be purchased directly through their website. If you’d like to also include the Nutrition Guide and knee cushion with your order, you’ll be charged an additional $5.95, bringing your total to $31.89.
All Ab Orbs come with a 60-day 100% money back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied for any reason within this time, simply call Customer Service at 877-369-2386, or email them at AbOrb@webcsr.info, to begin the return process.

Highly disappointed with this company
I placed my order on Dec. 21st. As of yet I still have not received the product but my credit card has been charged. I checked the website and there is no tracking information available. In fact, the date of the invoice changes every time I check the page. I emailed the address provided for customer support and have not gotten any response. Highly discouraged.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friendView all 1 commentsHide comments

I also tried ordering from them and when I sent them an email, they said they were completely backed up and today I got an email saying they couldn't fulfill my order so it got canceled.
