    Got one for Christmas. Haven't had much time to use it yet as I have had the flu, and still not out of it icon_confused.gif

    Anyway, anyone else use one? What do you think of it?

    it looks like you're supposed to wear a pink leotard and have your hair in a ponytail off to one side while using it

    Reminds me of Olivia Newton-John's song 'Let's Get Physical'.

    Heheh, like all the other infomercial fitness equipment, I'm sure it "stores neatly under the bed" (read: you can shove it under the bed and conveniently forget how much money you wasted on it!)

    Your better off buying an elliptical, that will challenge you more than this... dinky thing. A bit more of an investment helps.

    It looks like a lawsuit waiting to happen. You might want wear a helmet, elbow pads, knee pads, and wrist guards for your own protection. Strategically placed pillows behind you might help protect that tail bone.

    It looks like something's going to snap. Possibly on the 2nd or 3rd use.

    Well, it has long passed its 3rd use, and hasn't snapped yet.

    bitchy comments aside, if you're using it to burn calories, then yes, i'm sure it does some good...IF YOU USE IT!! don't tuck it under your bed. don't only use it 3 times. don't use it as a drying rack for your sweaters.

    Stephen's remark about doing legs, and Logan's rendition, tweaked by me in the Audicity audio editor:



    With regard to the device illustrated above, if you use it and it works, it's awesome. If you don't use it, and it doesn't work, it sucks. A pretty basic thing.

    Looks more like it's designed to make you bend over and spread 'em than for exercise LOL!
