7 reasons to buy an Elvie trainer
+ Like all well-designed products, the Elvie trainer is, on the face of it, very simple. The ‘pod’ itself (which I’m sure you’ll agree is a much nicer word than ‘probe’, which is favoured by most other pelvic floor trainer makers) is a smooth, green, inconspicuous little invention that’s nice to touch and hold. There’s also a USB cable to charge it up. And that’s it. The only other thing you need is your phone.
+ Your phone comes into play because this ingenious piece of kit syncs to it via Bluetooth, then is controlled via the Elvie trainer app. And the app is just GREAT. It makes the whole thing into a game that you really want to get better at. As you can see from the photos, it’s incredibly user-friendly, with goals that you can set yourself and track your exercises in real time. And because it’s so much fun, it’s pretty addictive, and because it’s pretty addictive, you get quick results.
+ You also get quick results because you can do it anywhere you like. The lack of wires mean you can be in the office, on a bus or just pootling about with life while you give yourself an internal workout.
+ It’s incredibly comfortable, being the smallest pelvic floor trainer available, and it comes with an optional cover that allows for custom sizing.
+ Elvie trainer also doesn’t rely on electrical pulses, as most other pelvic floor exercisers do. In our opinion this makes it feel like a much more natural experience that’s driven by you and your body.
+ Elvie trainer comes in a simple, cylindrical carry case that’s very discreet, takes up very little room and won’t have you answering awkward questions about the strength of your vaginal muscles. But a mere carry-case it is not – it’s also a wireless charger! This kind of touch makes the Elvie trainer a cut above everything else out there.
+ Speaking of battery life, Elvie’s battery lasts for a month anyway, so, between this and the wireless charging case, recharging isn’t something you’ll ever have to worry about.
2 reasons not to buy an Elvie trainer
– Elvie trainer works perfectly with Apple devices (iPhone 4S and above and iPad 3, Pro or Mini) and Android devices running software 4.3 or above, but connectivity issues have been found with Samsung phones, so it’s worth checking compatibility before you buy.
– The price may put you off, as the Elvie trainer the most expensive pelvic floor exerciser out there. But in our opinion, for what it offers, it’s worth every penny. However if you feel it’s a little steep, do check out the other four pelvic floor exercisers in our top five.
It’s hard to overstate quite how good the Elvie trainer is. It’s a pelvic floor exerciser that has pushed the boundaries to where they needed to be, and we highly recommend taking advantage of all the expertise they’ve poured into it. Helpfully you can also get it next day with Amazon Prime.
