Exercise machine FAD!!

Monday, September 05, 2011

Yesterday I went to the Great New York State Fair, was walking around & went into a building where all vender's are selling mostly info commercial 'STUFF'..
Came across this stand-up machine that had a place you stand on & it wobbled back and forth(left to right) then when you turned it on it vibrated..
THERE claim was people have lost over 80lbs on this machine!!!!!..
I laughed so hard as I read & heard what they were telling people how you can lose weight standing on this thing & without a diet or eating healthy!!!
Well needless to say I HAD to speak up!!!
Oh I blew there doors in by miss leading the public to 'Think" they can get so healthy by standing on a machine & it will whip you into amazing health..OMG!!! I told them I lost weight the HEALTHY WAY!!
They asked me if I have done my research also IF I knew what I was talking about-like I said I blew there hair back & I had people LAUGHING at THEM!!!
Oh they wanted me away from there place & boy really fast..
People listened to me I also carry my before pictures & showed all who were there during this
Well they never sold a machine with me there..
I go back to the State Fair TODAY this time I will get a picture of this Miracle weight loss machine to show all BEWARE..

    Yeah the smaller one on the end I was told by the lady who ran the other stand next to them that they came with the one that was tagged SOLD on it..

    YESTERDAY not one person stopped there she said & when they seen me oh I was laughing at them..
    BUT they shouldn't tell people that they have someone who lost 80lbs using it ..PLEASE, like the supplements out there STAY AWAY..
    Eating healthy & in moderation getting your BUTT off the couch & working up a good old sweat get that heart rate up & OH how GREAT you will feel once you have got yourself healthy..

    Some people are looking for a quick fix and there's lots of people that are dishonest that will take their money in a heartbeat. They may not have sold their contraption while you were there but in the end you know someone will believe them and they will sell each and every one of them.
    Bravo for not staying quiet! emoticon

    it's funny...these are like the power plates the trainers at my gym use with their clients....too bad they really don't work...whatever happened to good old fashioned exercises? lunges, squats, bench press etc?? and perhaps keeping an eye on all the cr*p people put in their mouths?? oh well, guess you don't need accountability when you have the "power step" right?? emoticon

    Hi Chris,
    Oh how I would like to have been there and watch you in action. It had to be a blast. I wonder what their people thought after you left.
    Thank you for sharing and hope you got a picture today.

    I think I might have seen that contrapton at my fair last year. People are suckers who will try any weight loss/exercise quick fix that comes along. They claim it exercises your muscles passively as you have to work to stay on it. Reminds me of those fat belts they had in the early years, a big strap around your waist that jiggles you, maybe you get exercise by laughing so hard lol.
    Good for you telling folks how its really done and saving them some money!!

    I just told Sunny332, this Seeing there faces today when I show up with a camera....IS GOING to BE PRICELESS!!!!!

    I am known to speak my mind when I see things that are BS!!!
    When it comes to getting healthy you must eat a healthy life style & moderation & MOVE that body NOT vibrating it & holding onto
