    Think about this for just a second. 20,000 muscle contractions in your abs per second while you're trying to relax. That sounds horrible. Actually that sounds like being forced to exercise with no control over it.

    My sisters use to iron their long curly hair to make it straight.

    They still have curly hair.

    The shakeweight is probably a better exercise than this.

    Sad part is, there are desperate and gullible people out there who will fall for it.

    The diet/fitness industry really is scummy for the most part.

    More money than sense comes to mind...There is lot of extra money lying around these days. :lol:

    Sounds like it's being promoted through the same marketing as The infrared wrap which burns in excess of 1000 calories, so they claim, per hour.

    It's the rage in Los Angeles. Their money, their time, their wastefulness. Their foolishness.

    Four sessions at $1000 a session is $4000. Still stupid as hell and zero chance of doing anything at all don't get me wrong, but not sure where 25k came from.

    It says it could take upwards of 6 months to see results, so 2 sessions a week for 6 months.

    That sounds really unpleasant. Some people just have too much money if this is what they're spending it on lol...

    The duration of time to see results says nothing about the length of the treatment.

    From the article starting with the last sentence of the first column:


    "You do four 30 minute sessions for over two weeks". So four sessions total over two weeks....$1000 a session, that is $4000 total. They are just saying that it might take a month to 6 months later to actually see the results....probably to save themselves questions about why their customers don't actually see any results following the actual course of the treatment.

    If it somehow was 2 sessions a week for 6 months that would be $54k not $25k anyways

    Without a doubt. And also like $24,995 cheaper.

    And that's why you sleep on the couch.

    Cheaper than that. Shakeweight available for $0.50 at local garage sales.
