This is an older invention aimed at ridding the user of unwanted calories. It was also marketed as a blanket cure for paralysis, indigestion, and rheumatism, as well as you know, giving women the fashionable tiny waists they wanted.
Seems suspicious to us, especially with all those magnets arranging to form a “battery.” Hmm…
If you’re a child of the 80s, you probably have an exercise video lurking around somewhere with Jane Fonda’s face on it. The Fonda-fad moved through to the 90s and saw some very colorful leotards.
Bounce, kick and sidestep all on that little platform. Seems a bit crazy, but it was definitely a workout!
To be honest, this kind of looks like a piece of couture from Louis Vuitton or something, right?! Anyway, these inflatable shorts were sold as a cure for back pain, and also for losing weight.
The ad suggested that they’re great for "shedding body moisture." Even better still, it also massages you and comes in a one-size-fits-all. Would you try them on?
Tony Little’s Gazelle
Ah yes, the Gazelle. A mainstay in many gyms and homes, the Gazelle was more popular than the treadmill at one time. It works the thighs, the buttocks, the chest, the triceps, and the calves — it does it all.
Or so Tony Little says. And hey, with its affordable price it’s no wonder millions of Americans bought into this piece of equipment and its claims.
Seems like a made-up word, right? Well, fun fact, all words are made up. Okay but seriously, smart talk aside, what in the world is an Abdomenizer? The piece of equipment, which makes us feel a little ill at the sight of it, is shaped like, well, a giant shoehorn?
The user would rock on it, supposedly toning their abs at the same time. What do y’all think?
