Default Only a 4 minute workout!

Ummm......yeah......are you kidding me? Glad to see that money is more important than helping people reach a realistic view of their lifestyle and exercise needs.....

I'm pretty sure this is the machine they are talking about

I have a 4 minute workout for them... tabata intervals. They don't cost $14,000 (in fact, they're free), but you probably will get sweaty.

Sometimes when I'm really busy, I just do a quick set of tabata burpees or thrusters... good to go.

I agree that there seems to be no limit to how far people will go to experience the illusion of having worked out without actually working out.

Heh.

There was actually a studio that opened up around here that was based on the 4 minute workout and Tabatas.

There were 8 machines.

You hopped on a machine, busted ass for 20 seconds, and hopped on the seconded, etc, etc, etc.

I think it closed.

OK, unless I am missing something, it looks like they are selling machines that actually do the exercise for you... unbelievable.

I take that back--it is all too believable

Skeptics like you will be dealt with in a severe manner. . .on the vibrating table for 10 minutes.
