Wacky Fitness Devices That Really Work
Looking to lose weight and get toned? Reviewers says these weird fitness inventions may actually help
Beamfit, $79.95This foam balance bar -- used with "fitness guru" David Mesirow's Beaming workouts -- claims to offer a low-to-no-impact workout that helps you balance your body and increase focus while engaging your core muscles. Beaming, yet another core-strengthening workout, combines moves from yoga and Pilates by balancing on this bar, which is so popular it sold out on the Home Shopping Network. Reviewers say it's "deceptively simple, yet so effective in teaching your body proper alignment" and "a good workout, but not so hard that it discourages you from doing it."
