Our Analysis
Read Amazon Reviews

Reviews of the Perfect Situp are mixed. GadgetReview.com reviewed Jeff Bordeaux says this product may be appropriate for beginners who don't know enough about basic technique to perform effective sit-ups on their own, but not for individuals who already know how to do a sit-up. When Indianapolis TV station WXIN runs the Perfect Situp past two exercise professionals, both say the device works as advertised but they disagree on whether it's really necessary. At StuffWeLike.com, a reviewer demonstrates the product and says that while it does work, there are many facets that can be improved upon, such as the resistance blades and complex assembly process. Meanwhile, owners posting to Amazon.com and Walmart.com are split down the middle: Half say the Perfect Situp works as advertised (even though it may not be appropriate for tall people), while the other half say it's not durable and they wish they hadn't purchased it.
