Ugly sneakers = a better backside? Well, that’s what Skechers tried to sell the world, with their “Shape-Ups.” These platform sneakers, with a “rolling bottom and kinetic wedge” actually came under fire after a class-action lawsuit was brought against the shoes.
I think we can stick to “these ‘shoes’ are made for walking” and not for shaping you up.
Peloton, Soul Cycle, or whatever bike workout you have subscribed to, there’s no doubt that spin classes, for some people, are like a religion. Sure, it’s not a crazy piece of equipment, but the devout spin-class goers, are really, very committed once they get into it.
There will be times when you want to throw up, when your legs burn so bad you’ll need to stop, but while it seems crazy to some, it’s definitely a decent workout.
Sure, this list is for some crazy exercise equipment, but surely, SURELY one of these things actually works! Enter the Waterball, which was designed with the medicine ball in mind.
Instead of sand, these balls are partially filled with water, which adds another level of instability. Try body twists or wall squats with these. Seems like a ball of fun!
Not going to lie here, but this piece of equipment looks like something your pet would enjoy pulling apart. However, the enticing offer of 20 dynamic exercise workouts is almost too good to refuse. It’s kind of like a lounger you’d find by the pool, with ankle and armbars to keep you locked in.
It looks horrible and awkward and… we’d rather use the lounge for the beach or pool.
This one reminds us of a shake weight, but the ad tells us, this is “not boring…this you will not soon forget.” Yes, we definitely will not forget how this flexible dumbbell looks.
The “Free Flexor” uses “circular strength technology” to make your muscles contract up to 300 times a minute. Wow! We are SO not sold on this er…interesting looking piece of equipment. But check it out, it looks like a real laugh.
