When it comes to something as serious as our health, it’s a bit mind-boggling to think of how many wacky things there are out there. And with April Fools’ Day approaching this Friday, it’s even harder to differentiate what’s for real and what’s a hoax. That’s why I love Shape’s review of three seemingly out-there fitness trends that actually, honestly work.
The first, strip-tease aerobics, is one of my faves. Just a few years ago, hearing about something like Sheila Kelley’s S Factor may have made us skeptical, but today the S Factor has started a fun, sexy and healthy workout revolution. (PSST: See Claudia’s interview with Sheila Kelley right now!) The second weird exercise is vibration training…. Lest you think of sex toys, this exercise actually increases muscle activity for the ultimate burn! The last, and arguably the oddest, is the Panasonic Core Trainer ($1,499.95) which looks like something fit for an inebriated night at a Western-themed watering hole, but actually works to improve core strength.
