fat jiggling machines in asia

The first time I went to the gym in China, I made a beeline for one of these fat jiggling (vibrating belt?) machines. While The Husband lifted weights and ran on the treadmill, I just stood around with this band around my waist, letting the machine do all the work for me. And then — you won’t believe it! I got super skinny! All my fat just got jiggled away!

Umm, no, not really. I just walked away with a numb sensation around my hips.

I don’t know why, but Asians really seem to like these fat jigglers. I see students using them all the time here in China, and my mom is a huge fan. She uses them whenever she goes to a spa in Korea, and it’s a common equipment at most Korean gyms. I’ve never seen one at a gym in America — apparently these machines have been around since the 1800s but were phased out around 1970s over there, thanks to snooty fitness experts calling the machine “dubious” or whatever. Pfft!

Well, I’m obviously lucky to be in this part of the world, because these vibrating belts are freakin’ awesome — it’s like going on a mini carnival ride during your workout. You Americans gym bunnies are seriously missing out.
