Her are reviews of the hottest work out tools of the new year...

The Bodyblade looks like a flattened hunting bow: It’s a flexible bar with a hand grip in the middle. When you hold the grip and give the thing a shake, it provides resistance as the two ends rapidly flex in and out. In addition to benefitting professional athletes, Bodyblade is an excellent device if you are one of the Three Stooges and need to flap other two Stooges on the head simultaneously.

Bodyblade® is unlike any other piece of exercise equipment on the market today. Most other systems work on the principle of the user attempting to lift a weighted item or stretch an elastic band. The Bodyblade®, however, works on the opposite premise: Once the ends begin to move, inertia wants to keep them in motion and it's up to you to resist. Thus, the risk of injury through overexertion is greatly reduced.

Bodyblade® will directly impact whatever sport you play by specifically targeting those muscle groups used in a particular sport. Many of the exercises you perform with Bodyblade® mimic the same movements athletes use in competition, allowing you to train your body to execute moves faster and with more force.

How does it build muscles?
While the rate of oscillation stays the same, the workout intensifies when the amplitude, or magnitude of the flexing tips, increases. Over the course of just one minute, the ends of the Bodyblade® move back and forth 270 times, and that's 270 times your muscles have to resist the movements. The resistance needed to control the blade can range from 1 to 34 pounds depending on the amplitude of the flexing tips.

What other advantages does Bodyblade have?
Timesaving: Bodyblade's® efficient movements provide a complete workout in just minutes, so you're never tempted to skip exercise during your otherwise busy schedule.

Cost: around $49,Compact: Bodyblade® is only a few feet long and a couple of pounds, easily fitting in the closet, under the bed and dozens of other places conventional weights and machines can't go.

What makes Bodyblade® different than other exercise equipment?
With Bodyblade® there are no weights or elastic bands that can break. You control the intensity and acceleration of the movement, which makes it safer and more effective than other equipment. Bodyblade® is technically known as a dynamic reactive instrument, which means that it matches the force you put into the blade and nothing more. As it moves back and forth four and a half times per second, it uses the principles of inertia to stimulate the muscles and make them stronger. The better conditioned the user, the more enhanced the workout. Yet since the user controls the movement, you can never injure yourself with Bodyblade®. All of this is possible due to the patented technology and the inertial exercise principles built into every Bodyblade®.

How does Bodyblade® create resistance?
Bodyblade® is a reactive, oscillating device that utilizes inertia to generate up to 270 muscle contractions per minute. The laws of inertia state that an object set in motion remains in motion until another force acts upon it to stop or change its direction. You push and pull on the apparatus, which accelerates the blade and creates a force due to the flex or amplitude of the blade. The greater the flex, the greater the resistance that is needed by the body to counteract the destabilizing forces delivered into the body. The blade's movement therefore requires the user to contract his or her muscles in order to neutralize these forcesI say it is worth a try, and the cost won't kill ya.

Children of the ’70s and ’80s will recognize the Twist Board’s uncanny resemblance to Playskool’s Sit ’n Spin, which really was loads of fun until you spun too many times and upchucked your Crunchberries. The fitness concept behind the Twist Board is to stand on the circular disc and quite literally do the twist (like we did last summer). “The Twist,” you may recall, was recorded by a man named Chubby Checker. Coincidence? Another great tool to lose some extra poundage.
“Wearable Gyms”

Certainly one of the challenges of modern life is finding the hours in a day to exercise. No time? No problem! Several manufacturers advertise devices to be worn like clothing, albeit clothing that sometimes needs to be plugged in.

Slimming shorts don’t just hold your belly in like a space-age girdle—they also promise to reduce cellulite by “micromassaging” your unsightly skin. Some slimming shorts are available with matching knee supports, too, in case your extra weight is blowing out a kneecap.

Insomniacs may already be familiar with late-night infomercials selling padded belts that vibrate and/or produce heat to shed weight. One is the Velform Sauna Belt —The intelligent waist slimming belt with DC 12v power supply is controlled by microcomputer.It integrates the wise control, vibrating massage, heating and magnetic treatment together.With powerful vibrating massage ball inside, it can vibrate and massage on waist, neck, leg and arms, so it can speed up the recycle of blood, relax the fatigue, burn the fittiness and enhance the metabolism. There are several magnets inside the waist belt, so the powerful magnetic field that is produced by the magnets can adjust the balance of the body, so, your body will become stronger and slimmer.


The PCGamerBike by 3D Innovations dangles the promise of turning video-game couch potatoes into string fries. The GamerBike is actually a video controller: You hook it up to your PC with a USB cable, then move characters or vehicles in video games by pedaling on the stationary bicycle. It’s even available with an optional hand controller so that you can stop all the bothersome exercise without delaying your game. A recumbent version of the PCGamerBike will be available in 2008, which is great for those of us who become winded by sitting upright.

Flybar 1200

With its elastometric spring system, elevation potential of more than five feet, and 12 thrusters that can be engaged independently, the Flybar 1200 has not only the coolest name but the best advertising copywriters in the fitness gadget business. It seems nothing short of incredible that 1,200 pounds of thigh-burning thrust can be yours for just $299. Then you realize it’s a pogo stick.
Range of Motion

The Range Of Motion, or ROM Time Machine, deserves mention here not because we’re skeptical but because it costs $14,615. Looking a lot like a cross-trainer designed by H.R. Giger, the ROM promises hard results with just four minutes of non-impact exercise per day. Heck, over the first year that’s just $40 per daily workout. If you’re sweating it out with a trainer at $50 per workout, Range of Motion may, in time, be a cheaper investment.

ROM’s creators have gone to great lengths to justify the cost, so give them a chance and read the 14,615 words they’ve posted to explain why you should buy the Range Of Motion instead of a new car. After all, nobody gets in shape driving around town.
