"Tone in Ten" Jiggle Machine...works??


Quote  |  Reply

We've got one of those Tone in Ten machines at work that you stand on and it jiggles you around. Kinda like this one: http://www.detailshere.com/images/k2poster.jp g

Anyway, I'm just wondering if this thing actually works... I can definitely feel my legs, hips, tummy, etc jiggling around but...is it actually going to help tone my body? I don't feel any kind of muscle pain during or after as I would if I were to actually exercise.

I've been trying to use it everyday at lunch for 10 minutes...is it even worth it?

...are we in the 70's again?

In short, no, jiggle machines do not work. All they do is exactly what they say they do- jiggle. Jiggling- unless you're dancing and doing the jiggling- is not going to 'shake' fat away or tone you up.

All they are, are very, very fun.

I think you already know.

 I know absolutely nothing about fitness. Zero.

Hence the question... If I knew...would I ask?

The infomercial you saw said that it worked. You were skeptical, and asked on a forum. You were right to be skeptical.

 I didn't even see an infomercial. I saw the machine sitting in the lunch room at work and was curious about it, is all. I apologise for asking ....

I have never tried one but i have heard that you are supposed to be excercising while you are on it...like doing a squat and holding it for awhile...not just standing on it and jiggling...like i said though i have no personal experiance with one...

Don't worry about it.  There are no stupid questions, just stupid answers and some people get their jollies by being sarcastic smart asses, not that anyone on this thread did that....

I'm going to give you a real answer.

This shake thing probably won't work, but if you want to "tone", what you really want to do is a combination of gaining muscle and/or losing fat. It may not happen at the same time though, so you may have to choose to focus more on one or the other. So losing more weight and retaining the muscle you have, or gaining muscle while minimizing how much fat you gain.

To gain muscle, lift heavy weights by doing exercises that use many muscles such as squats, deadlifts, etc, and you'd want to at least eat enough to fuel your workouts and daily living.

A great tool I've found is New Rules of Lifting for Women. It outlines how to get the look you're describing. There are other books/training programs out there too that will help out.

Anything in a lunch room that makes you jiggle cannot be good for you, or for anybody trying to eat.  Smile

 

No, it does not work.
