They’re all coming out of the woodwork now.
New pieces of at home exercise equipment like you’ve never seen before. It seems like a strange time to be bringing out a new exercise gadget with Christmas just around the corner but I suppose they’re aiming for the January rush and are just teasing you at the moment.
The CircleGlide from the makers of leg magic claim (don’t they all) that you can tone and sculpt lean legs, sexy buns and awesome abs by using this machine and it’s secret is “Triple Plane Technology” which moves your body in all planes of movement.
Correct me if I’m wrong but walking moves your body in all planes of movement doesn’t it? I’ll concede that unlike gym machines that fix you in position the CircleGlide will move you about a bit more.
The Circle Glide looks like a Leg Magic machine on a turntable and it’s claim to fame is that it adds a rotational component to your exercise. How much more effective this machine turns out to be compared to the Leg Magic remains to be seen but my suspician is not much.
As with all exercise equipment if you strip away the fuff you’re left with the question how much better / quicker can I lose weight / fat with this machine compared with just doing body weight exercises and a little bit of fast walking?
My guess would be if you spent the same amount of time doing bodyweight exercises you’d get better results. The main factor in how well you’ll do is the time / effort you put into your workout not what equipment you choose to use.
When you consider this machine costs $214.75 or $14.95 + $19.95 S&H + 4 * $49.95 if bought on the trial it’s not cheap.
A better choice would be The Truth About Abs. It costs less than $40 leaving you with plenty of money left over. No gadgets or gimmicks just all the information you’ll need to get the results you’re looking for.
If however the Circle Glide excites you and will give you the motivation to exercise then go for it. Any exercise is better than no exercise
