The bench that we are reviewing today is the Confidence Fitness Pro Adjustable Sit Up Ab Bench V2.
It's a bench that has been getting a lot of hype recently, but is it actually worth the cost?
Let's take a closer look to find out with this Confidence Fitness Pro review.
This bench has an adjustable incline and height feature which means that you are able to tailor the intensity and difficulty of your workout depending on how hard or how easy you want to go on any given day.
There is an adjustable leg support that is fashioned from high density support foam, giving you a comfortable position throughout your routine.
In terms of exact dimensions, the bench measures in at 130 x 32 x 64cm when assembled and 128 x 32 x 20cm when folded.
It is important to note that there is a maximum weight limit for this particular bench. It is only appropriate for use for a person weighing 100Kg or less.
This weight limit is a little on the low side compared to some of the other benches we reviewed in our round up post of the best ab benches.
If you are under the 100kg weight limited this bench has some great features as you will see later on that most of the other benches don't have.
For its general shape and size, this particular bench should be seen as a great piece of starter equipment if you want to learn how to efficiently perform things like sit-ups, upper body workouts, and abdominal work. It is a no-frills design, but it does exactly what you need it to so there are no complaints in that area.
The fact that the bench is able to fold completely flat when not being used is a big benefit for many people and something that most other benches on the market don't do. If you aren't someone who is able to assemble a home gym in a spare room for dedicated use, then the ability to fold away and store your equipment is incredibly important. This is the kind of bench that you will be able to fold away and store really easily.
The feature allowing you to adjust the incline of the bench makes it a great choice from beginners all the way through to expert. Being able to start with a gentle pace and then gaining the strengh to work up to a more intense session is a really great benefit to have in one single piece of equipment.
The general design and build of the bench are very good. Made from sturdy steel, you aren't going to feel like you are in danger of falling or breaking the machine. It also features a scratch resistant powder coated finish which will ensure that the bench stays in great condition for as long as possible.
The Confidence Fitness Pro Ab Bench is great on price and is great for those on a tight budget.
If I were to compare the Confidence Fitness Pro to some of the other fitness benches on the market, it might be fair to say that this particular product falls on the more 'basic' side of the spectrum. It definitely does the job of enabling you to perform things like sit-ups and abdominal crunches, but it doesn't offer much more in terms of extra bang for your buck.
The bench is a decent size, but it might not be the most appropriate choice for someone who is tall, taller than around six foot for example. It will be usable, but it might not be the most comfortable bench and the length of the board could be an issue.
The conclusion of this Confidence Fitness Pro review is that it is a great bench if you are looking for something to kick start your fitness and exercise journey. It might not be the very best in terms of quality and manufacturing that you can buy, but there is nothing about it that would cause me to recommend a different bench at the same price.
If you are looking for a simple, no-nonsense exercise bench that can help you get into a good, healthy routine, then you can't go wrong with this one. It is easy to use and easy to store when you need to clear the room for something else.
