Metabolic Gym Gives You A Workout Without Moving. Also: We Have A Bridge To Sell You.
Living in France has caused me to be constantly flummoxed by the whole “French Women Don’t Get Fat” situation. They don’t! And even though exercise has become increasingly à la mode, I can count on one hand the number of times I have seen a Parisian woman running by the Seine (sans sports bra, I might add). Perhaps their hidden secret is this: the gym métabolique or “metabolic gym,” a sort of UV pod that you lie still on and magically burn 800-1,000 calories in a half hour. Supposedly, 30 minutes in this thing is equal to an hour and a half of gym time. Uh. Right.
Otherwise, the only other thing I can think of is the power plate machine, which is by no means new, but perhaps now considered chic because Kenzo has designed one. Check it out after the jump. [JalouGallery.com]
We don’t know if Kenzo’s power plate machine will make you lose weight, but it sure will lighten your bank account at over $14,000. [Coolbuzz.org]
