Does anyone have one of these or familiar with it? My friend recently bought one of these on a trip to Tenn. paid almost $300 for one. She thinks it will help her lose weight. It is a machine you lay on the floor and put your heels on this machine ( that reminds me of a plastic pillow) and it just jiggles you all over. Anyone know about it? Thanks.
Sounds too good to be true. George's pockets are probably getting full from people who hope it will work.
What a rip-off. You know, there is a sucker born every minute.
Anybody with a dab of common sense should know better.......
but stupid is as stupid does.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind. "
I totally agree......I don't it can make you lose weight. But my friend is very defensive about it probably because of all the money she spent on this gadget and trying to justify it. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with this machine. Thanks for your replies.
HSN use to sell these machines, I got mine for about 100.00. Same machine, I don't know if they still sell them. It has a different name than Jiggling George.
I was in Tennessee and went to the same store that your friend did. I was able to try the machine out. This product is not designed to help you lose weight. The product was originally designed to help with circulation and get the blood flowing. Granted they did say that some people did experience loss of inches. But they say that it helps diabetics especially increase circulation. After using this product and when I left the store I did feel "energized" and that stayed with me the biggest part of the day. So the weight loss maybe is all your friend heard and that's why she purchased it....but just wanted to clarify that it was mainly designed for circulation.
I have one I bought off HSN about 8 years ago for $99 - it is called an Oxyflow. The idea is that you put your ankles into the holders while laying down flat- legs out straight- feet abit elevated. It gently rocks your body back and forth. It stimulates blood flow . It does work. The idea came from the Chinese field workers- after standing on their legs all day in the rice patties- they would come home and lay on the floor and have someone rock them back and forth with their feet abit elevated. It was to help get the pooled blood circulating better though out their body rather than pooling in their legs from hours of standing. It is not a miracle cure for weight loss- but - it will help people who are not able to stand or walk alot get some circulation flow thoughtout their body. You can even put the machine on a board and do it laying on the bed if someone was unable to get out of bed. People on the internet are selling it for way more than it is worth. I would never pay $400 for one as I have seen them on ebay for.
