These items are just too weird to be used as fitness equipment. Instead it should be under the entertainment section in stores. The wi-fi scale is just wrong in so many ways.

Natasha A. said...

wow, interesting gadgets :) and to think I'm just using a simple treadmill. Hahah in fact, I even made a review about it in my blog :P

Chicita said...

I've thought "ab belts" went out of style long time ago. Were they not proven completely useless?
P.S. I think I still got one in the garage :)

Alana Martinez said...

The most interesting gadget there is the Robot Personal Trainer, I love to try that gadget if its really effective:)

Thanks for a great blog with many interesting posts!

nothernboi said...

My money is on the WiFi scale. To have your weight and progress broadcast over the social network is all motivation you should need... lol

The ropeless jump rope is a little pointless as part of the intensity of the workout is the focus on getting the rop to clear your feet, otherwise it's just jumping up and down! But maybe it could be useful to built confidence before you move onto a real rope!

Michael Brown said...

I just read a study that found that people who did 10 minutes of yoga daily for two years increased bone density in their hips and spines. Also noted, was yoga’s benefits decrease the risk of falls, which can result in osteoporotic fractures. I like to to stretch my feet and toes with SmartToes Toe Stretchers . The unique design relieves foot and toe strain, as well as, provide hammer toe treatment and bunion treatment.

High-tech hopping? Are you kidding? I won't be surprised if it was invented by British scientists. Or Japan ones, they are also very eccentric.

Kamran Yaqoob said...

I am Ryan "Energizer" Ehmann, owner of Altitude Fitness and I’ve been out of shape several times in my life, so beat down – tens of thousands of dollars in debt, depressed and my self-esteem so crushed that I was afraid to go out in public. I turned to the fitness industry as the vehicle to heal my mind and body, and that’s when my dreams began to become a reality. The power of a proven fitness program is life changing so just imagine how much more you could give to your family, career and friends if you were on top of your game?



There is a champion in everyone…including YOU!



If you’ve ever wanted to lose that extra 12, 18, 24, 36 (or MORE!) inches of Body Fat off your frame and experience the benefits of a healthier lifestyle, then this message will cut to the chase and give you the answers you’re looking for. My fat loss training system have taken me 28,882 hours and 10 years of personal training to Master it so years ago I quit working at Gold's Gym as the Fitness Manager and opened a small, private workout facility to educate people about foods, fitness and lifestyle. Altitude fitness is a fun family atmosphere that people come as they are in grey sweets, white T-shirts, no make-up and they are accepted as a team member who want to learn and get in shape. No one is judged, it's not a fashion show and no matter your health or fitness shape you are a part of the Fat Loss Team working together.



I promise my "Fat Burning Zone" training program will get you to LOSE 12 inches in 12 workouts, Energize your mind, shrink body fat, sky rocket your confidence, increase your self image of yourself, improve the quality of your life and people will be saying, "WOW, you look AMAZING and have a GLOW of happiness! This will be the last fitness program you ever do...............Wooo Hoooo

Amy @ Flex Belt said...

The robot personal trainer is ridiculous .. that sounds more of a gimmick but the flex belt actually works well and is an fda approved ab belt too i've tried it and bought it from flex belt canada and it actually makes your abs feel pretty worked but won't get you a crazy ripped six pack, you'll have to work your abs the hard way like crunches and situps etc to get the six pack.

MMa said...

Yeah, that rope less jump rope would come in handy for the uncoordinated :).

Adel said...

Yeah these gadgets are so weird but I hope it will work and make someone's body beautiful, nice post I enjoy reading it!

forge-fitness said...

Can't beleive these items made it to the shelves!! I'm sure they'v made the inventors a lot of monies!! Very interesting article but il stick to the simple treadmill and weights XD

executive gifts said...

Indeed! it's weird. But the fact that you used it, I salute you girl. Many readers will have a funny impression to you. But thats ok.. as long as you are happy and contented using it.

executive gifts said...

Hi! I saw the flex belt and I actually bought those last month. Sadly It does not work. I am hoping for a refund but I my son played with it and He makes it a part of his superpower tools so I am not returning it to the mall.

Hi,

An interesting post! I think that even if it's the age for new technology, a good run is still better. The cool morning air in your face, the lazy morning sounds you hear as you pass by your street, the smell of freshly brewed coffee... Nothing beats that! But if I had to really pick one, I'd opt for the jumping rope without a rope. I find it amusing but interesting. It would probably be weird to be using it at first but if it proves to help, then I'm game for it! :)

branded items said...

Diva,

I think the robot would be for me! I find him very cute. I will probably have loads of fun exercising with that robot. It's like having my own RTD2 (Starwars) around :) The other pick I have is the jumping rope without the ropes. I think that'll be cool. This post is interesting and fun!

Nyla Crystal | Sacramento Belly Dancer said...

The iGallop looks interesting. I wonder if it really provides a good core workout.

logo items said...

I agree with your blog and this is really weird as for fitness gadgets are interesting.

I like these weird gadgets as Natasha does. It's how you perceive the usage of these things and how you program yourself to get fit. Nice idea.

branded items said...

ropeless rope? how are you gonna get up in the air with that kind of gadget? I would still prefer to use the old once so that I can see the rope which is necessary to adjust my foot work and timing.

this gadgets information very help full, thanks to share

I really like the ropeless jump rope. Imagine without having to stop because you've tripped over. I am having second thoughts if I should buy one now.

HCG UK said...

Great Post! I really surprised on this product it's so beneficial for fitness surely i will use this. Thanks for sharing us!

branded items said...

I rather have a punching bag on that robot stretching assistant. Since I can punch all the way and exert of effort in burning calories. And besides I can stretch on my own.

the strongest rope said...

I note the Ropeless Jump Rope is the first simple gadget that helps :P

custom items said...

The best ones I would care to try are the ropeless jump rope, I wonder how it would feel jumping rope without the actual rope. The other is the robot personal trainer, wouldn't mind getting into the futuristic feeling for once, I'll have my personal R2D2. :)

conference gifts said...

Hi, I so liked the Robot Personal Trainer. For sure it's like watching a video on fitness and imitating its moves. Looks exciting!

Attention grabbing gadgets. I would probably use them for a day and forget about them - except for maybe the jump rope - it's convenient if you have low ceilings - but I feel like I wouldn't jump as high as I do with a real one.

These are really weird gadgets. I'd have to pass on these and go back to those I believe works best for me like the 'manual' jump ropes and heavy yet durable elliptical machines. :)

Nice gadgets to use for maintaining fitness level and grow it. I think all gadgets are quite difficult to use.
