Have a question?
When do you expect to be sending the survey out? I need to update my original shipping address as I move on the 3rd September.
So as Has been mentioned before but I don’t see an official reply to is with the cardboard packaging been able to damage/leave imprint on the foam, will regular use by us not also do the same?
Would also like an update :)
After more than a week, are there some updates?
Hi... I’ve left an email to change my shipping address over 20 days ago and haven’t received a response since. Can someone check and confirm the change?
Thanks to all backers who do unterstand the situation and support us by sending motivating massages. We appreciate it!
We are already under big pressure from many sides. Bad comments don't help.
You can be sure, we do the best we can to ship again as soon as possible.
This comment has been removed by Kickstarter.
Jesie - I made light of your comments, it was meant to bring a bit of humour, nothing more than that. You didn't take it as meant, my apologies. I'm also sorry for your loss, no-one should experience that.
I hope this will be the last delay.
Oh my god Mr. Barry Perfect!!
Look at me, I don’t make nasty comments and I’m ok with the delay!!
Barry on February 9, 2018
Well there's a surprise - a shipment delay!! I have yet to back a project that meets the despatch time they project.
If you're looking to manufacture a product do you not, before going to backers, have eveything in place and know what materials and parts you require and the appropriate suppliers to buy from?
Why is it that time and again backers come up with the same excuses?
Barry....first of all that’s not my birthday gift....my birthday gift was given to me last week a 2019 Bentley Continental GT!! I ordered the plank because we own a gym and we wanted to see the quality, and hopefully place a large order for the gym and have an instructor teach a class!! FYI I just don’t work for the largest firm I’m one of the partners of this firm. So why don’t you stop being such an asshole, because obviously you have nothing better to do....you don’t know me, or my family.....go get a job or if you do I hope that minimal wage you make brings you happiness!!
So correct me if I’m wrong....you are not shipping the item because it left imprint on the rubber? Or because something else was damaged? Now, I’m looking at the plank and if some cardboard made that imprint, that means that our elbows will make an imprint too....being that I doubt all of us backers don’t weigh ounces!! Now I’ve been super patient and even when my husband back in May told me to request our money back to by another plank that’s out in the market already....I told him NO...that I was going to give you guys a chance because you were making sure everything was perfect with the plank....and you guys are letting me and proving my husband right, which I’m always right not him!! I have 3 more items I’m backing up....1 arrived last week, another I just got confirmation that shipping is starting Monday and I’m in their first batch....the other one is shipping In October....you guys need to get your shit straight because if I don’t receive my plank by the end of this month which is my birthday.....I will get my money back, I work with the largest law firm and getting my money back won’t be hard at all. So please fix this issues and start shipping..from what I’m reading all your backers are not happy at all!!
Wow, and the next delay. I will certainly never back again after this experience. I just wish i could cancel my backing. After this mess I unfortunately lost any trust into the product and you as a company. This has taken far to long and every single time we expect to finally get we are told yet another delay. I agree I wish could cancel and can not trust a company that does business this way.
Wow! Die nächste Entschuldigung und Verzögerung...
Ich bin schon glücklich wenn ich das Produkt noch vor meinem ableben einmal testen könnte. Das wären voraussichtlich noch so 50-60 Jahre zeit...
Any chance we can get a final delivery date? Backed another project due in February 18 they are late as well and set 16. September as their final date with 10% refund for every week they miss that date.

Hi, Can you confirm that my address has been updated. I've sent several emails to email@example.com and have yet to receive confirmation.
What's the latest with the shipments? When should we plan on receiving this?
Is this shipment to us the bakers or the shipment to you guys? Just need to know when are we looking for the shipment date to us.....please update us!
wow can't wait :) you mentioned shipment was tomorrow i.e 4 days ago. Has there been any further updates? i'm based in the UK
Is this still happening??
Yay!! Can’t wait...just received today my BodyBoss Portable Gym!! So I’m really looking forward to my PlankPad!!
Which shipping? The shipping to the customers directly or the shipping to a stockroom?
:) Looking forward to receiving your Plankpad! Will the App be available tomorrow as well? Thanks for your work!
@all: Shipment will be tomorrow.
We will do an update soon to inform about the delivery schedule.
Only 6months late.... Are they really going to deliver? Looking increasingly like delivery will be closer to Christmas 2018, if at all this year!
Any updates? ...
Still waiting on a reply on when my plank will be shipped! I live in Jax FL, if that makes it easy for your team to determine shipping date. Hate to say this but I made another pledge at 3 months ago, and they estimated shipping beginning of this month....my item arrives today!! I have another pledge and estimated shipping August 2018...I just received an email that they are on track...my shipping date is scheduled for August 6th!
I was angry before, and then I had a word with myself, I gave you another chance, but now I’m angry again.
You’re vague, you’re passive aggressive, you’re dismissive and it seems like you actually don’t care about your backers at all.
Original shipping time feb 2018,
1 update about the app - fine but nothing about shipping.
1 about the manufacturing process - well yes, nice information, but actually no useful info and this pro ess should have happened months before to meet the feb date.
1 about package design - as above.
1 about foam - as above.
1 about tv - actually just wound me up.
1 promising shipment at the end of June - didn’t meet that eh?
1 showing a product sample - again, nice but don’t blow your own trumpet too much cos this should have all happened months ago.
And a final one with the date of the 26th of July - BUT still totally vague about actual delivery in each county.
So if we break these 5 updates down to ACTUAL important information, about a product that is months behind in its promised delivery, maybe 2 were relevant.
The rest is just smoke screen.
I’m frustrated, I’m angry, and I want my money back.
I don’t know what to think anymore. Postponing after postponing. 😢😢
Hi creator - thanks for the update.
Just for clarification, the 26th of July, what is happening then?
Is it the container shipment to split into the 3 batches, which will then take a few weeks on the ocean and after that fulfillment to backers starts?
Or is it the actual fulfillment to the backers and are the plank pads already in the 3 warehouses?
Please help us to manage our expectations. Because this will make the difference between having them early August or late September.
I saw your last Update, for me the 7.8.18 is the deadline... Every time a new story....
Thank you for the update!
So it’s the end of the second week AFTER you said shipping was going to start.
Radio silence fro moth os usually followed by a delay.
I have yet to receive my plankpad in Singapore. Please let me know the tracking no. Thank you!
So has shipping started yet?!
Because I thought it was last week it was meant too.
Can you confirm that it’s started?
I got my survey on Monday and sent it...so I’m good to go, when will my item be shipped?
So the promised ‘next week’ is nearly over, when is shipping starting please?
Just re the planking after pegnancy, don’t rush into it, eh?
You really don’t know what’s going to happen to your body, and some exercises like planking and sit ups can make things worse, not better.
If you have diastase, a gap/hols between your abs, it’s common, there’s better exercises to do, planking could be useless or even worse.
Good luck with that baby and don’t rush your body too much x
The plank exercise is quite effective coming back in shape after pregnancy.
One in our team just used one of our Plankpad prototypes after her pregnancy.
After 10 weeks pause of any sports she restarted planking and got back into shape easily.
I just saw what your saying and I’m very against screwing people over on Kickstarter then going on to sell on amazon.
Jeez, after looking up the stealth fitness thing I think we’ve done ok with plank pad!
Yes it looks a good product but they launched that on Kickstarter in 2016 and people are still saying they havnt got their product yet! Even though you can now buy them! Also, the plank pad is a lot cheaper, yes it doesn’t rotate but I don’t think I need it too! I just want it so I can get cracking!
Today another product claiming to do exactly the same thing (with 2 day shipping) popped up on my Facebook. Stealth body fitness. It looks super awesome. Either way I can’t use either since after this was completed I found out I’m pregnant and well with all the delays now I have a baby bump and it won’t be as effective with my belly dragging, but glad we will finally get something :)
We received now hundreds of emails with requests about the survey.
It will take some time to answer them all.
Meanwhile you you can check as Jacob Dijkstra described:
