A Genius Workout Tool From a Celeb Trainer

Aug/18/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We first heard about this from Jennifer Garner, who calls the at-home fitness find a “wonder” and “incredibly effective,” adding that you feel results after using it just one time. She’s not kidding. It makes push-ups, squats, lunges, crunches and every other circuit training move even more muscle-burning, but at the same time, less miserable (this editor basically refuses to do a regular push-up now that she’s tried the modified push-up using this tool).

They’re deceptively simple (yes, we know, they look sort of like those furniture movers), but like we said, they’re also pretty genius. We felt like we were engaging our muscles way more when we used the Valslide as compared to doing the same moves without the tool. And we certainly felt more of a burn the next day. Let’s put it this way, if you’re going to spend time doing crunches or lunges or squats or push-ups, don’t you want to get the most out of your workout? Adding these sliders does just that.

We break them out when we’re watching TV and are feeling too lazy to go to a workout class. And because the Valslide is so compact, you can also keep a set in your suitcase and use them when you’re traveling and far away from your gym.

And as we show in the video, the Valslide, which was created by celeb trainer Valerie Waters, are padded so you can comfortable rest your knees or hands or feet on them. Plus, each comes with a cloth baggie or “sock” so you can use the tool on hardwood floor or carpeting.
