Skating was definitely a fad for many years, and it’s also pretty fun to cruise around on wheels. You may even remember seeing advertisements for Chariot Skates and Land Rollers — but let’s be real here, do you think they even give you a proper workout?
Apparently, these are built for those who want to take their skating to the next level and perform tricky stunts. We wonder if the saying goes “the bigger the wheel, the harder you fall?” Hopefully not, because as you can see, these wheels are rather large.
Yes, that’s right, the chair that does the hula! Forget buying plane tickets, you can have the Hawaiian experience right at your desk. The chair apparently stimulates the abs as it swings you around in your chair.
Powered by a motor, your chair moves under you while you work or watch TV. Seems like a gimmick, and it most definitely is.
Exercise in a Bottle
No surprises here — why work out at all, if a pill can do it for you and you don’t even need to move a muscle? Millions of Americans have tried many different types of diet pills — one of the more eyebrow-raising, however, is Exercise in a Bottle.
We don’t even want to explain how this works, because, well, it just doesn’t. Stick to going for a walk outside and eating your greens!
Apparently, these babies were designed in Switzerland — and they’re definitely a very unique-looking piece of footwear. They're almost like wearing trampolines on your feet so prepare yourself to feel the bouncing action — which apparently helps you burn more calories.
We know classes have been structured to include these er…jumping shoes. Would you try them out? Or are they a little out-there (or rather up-there) for you?
Remember Mark Wahlberg and the funky bunch, telling us to feel those… “good vibrations”? You know, the “sweet sensations”? Well, there was a piece of workout equipment created for that very reason, and it was called the Vibro-Belt.
Electronic muscle stimulation is still very much alive and well on the late-night shopping channel!
