Fitness trends are cyclical, indeed.
This story about shaken (not stirred) mice is sure to set the fitness industry back a few years into it’s not-so-glorious “spot-reducing” past.
(Which reminds me, aren’t we due for some new research on how effectively the Thighmaster eliminates ‘the jiggle’ from inner thighs?)
It’s only a matter of time before some lazy arse with “M.D.” after his name transposes this shake-’em-up report into creative ways in which he can sell a worthless fitness program to desperate housewives across America.
Infomercial gadgets supporting this “new” way to exercise are certain to follow. When gyms start offering group vibration classes, I might just have to rethink my career choice and get involved in something with more credibility, such as selling used cars or becoming a member of the People’s Temple.
But why wait? You can drop your quarters into the box next to the bed at the No-tell Motel and after 15 minutes of vibrating good times, you’ll have a lean, firm mid-section.
Well, at least the rodents living in the mattress will have a nice six-pack.
