    Dr. Lawton's Guaranteed Fat Reducer

    Dr. Lawton's Guaranteed Fat Reducer

    Another product that debuted in the early 1900s, claimed that reducing fat was as simple as erasing it away. If rubbing this flat, rubber pad on my belly can't burn fat, then I fear that my situation is utterly hopeless.

    The Dumbbell Cane

    The Dumbbell Cane

    "At last, we have it!" The dumbbell cane hit the market in 1910, and was simply a cane with a dumbbell attached. The advertisement for this product stated that the cane could be swung in various directions as you walk, with, "apparent unconsciousness." Yes, because we all should be unconsciously swinging weights around as we walk in public. (Via Business Pundit http://www.businesspundit.com/15-of-the-most-worthless-inventions-money-can-buy/)

    The Treadmill Bike

    The Treadmill Bike

    I'm not exactly sure how this product managed to go from being just a concept to an actual finished product. I mean, I wonder how many steps this process took and how, throughout the entire time, no one involved stopped themselves to wonder if this was a ridiculous idea. This is like... it's like having a... Nevermind, there is no comparison. This is so bad that it isn't like anything else that preceded it. This product makes it into the category of "What the...?!" where it stands alone. To paraphrase a fellow writer: this is for people who love the treadmill, but also love being outside. Add the two together and it's called running outside. (Via The Bicycle Forest http://www.bikeforest.com/tread/index.php)

    Vibrating Ab Belt

    This one isn't specific to a brand, because I would like to include every brand of ab belt ever produced. Ladies and gents, there is no shortcut to a flat tummy! Put clean foods in your body, get in your cardio, and lift weights (yes ladies, I'm talking to you also)!!

    High Tech Ride iJoy

    High Tech Ride iJoy

    After watching the video for this product, I was cringing and giggling at the same time. Honestly, nothing I could ever say would be as funny as just watching the video: http://www.homegymuk.com/hire/gym-exercise-i_joy-rider.php. (Via Home Gym UK)

    Bodyblade

    Bodyblade

    Never fear, the Bodyblade-wielding super hero is here!! Seriously, though, people find inspiration in various things and that is great. So, if this is what gets you to get moving then more power to you. As for me, I would say don't waste your money. Nothing beats the basics, like a pair of dumbbells or a plain old jump rope.

    Leg Magic X

    Leg Magic X

    This contraption looks pretty much like a pogo stick, except I'm pretty sure a pogo stick would give you a better workout than this device. Sure, if you're elderly or very overweight this might be a good place to start - but walking is also a good place to start. As far as functional movement goes, this doesn't mimick any move I've ever seen a human do naturally. So, unless you're a cheerleader who needs to do splits in the air, you probably won't get much use out of this device.
