The last couple of days I spent visiting a number of factories to find the best supplier for a new fitness machine, aptly called CRAZY FIT. Basically not much more than a vibrating platform, this machine will be the next big fitness craze for lazy people. Already a huge hit in Europe, you heard it from me first!
10 minutes of full body vibration supposedly equals one hour of workout. Add to that "promises" of multiple other health benefits such as strengthening of bone density, vericous vein reduction and many more miracles, I can see it become the next treadmill.
Just no walking. I am not convinced, but my client sure is. I had to test so many machines, some of my fillings fell out....just a minor side effect.
I told my client to put it on the label with all the other warnings, such as "do not operate when drunken" or "feeble people shall not use machine". Yes, those were actual warnings in CHINGLISH. How about this one: "Automatism/Fat testing"...Which I believe is meant to say Auctomatic Body Mass Index.
Anyway. Minor flaws. We found a good factory that seems to be able to correct those issues and my job is done. Back to Shanghai.
