Weekly WTF: The New Fitness Machine You Ride Like a Horse

July 24, 2012

Move over, Shake Weight, there's a new suggestive fitness tool in town! This Korean exercise gizmo simulates horse riding, which basically means you straddle it and start gyrating. As you can imagine--or see for yourself by clicking on the video--it makes for a laugh-out-loud infomercial. According to the YouTube description:

From Korea, for those who like to ride the horse in front of TV and in home comfort of their own space. For all family member, this home mechanical equestrian system will meet for all the family need. It help device to fitness you up! And reach the health goal! Live longer for now! Be your Ace Power!!

This isn't the first ridiculous fitness device to hit TVs (see also the equally absurd Hawaii Chair), and we're guessing it won't be the last, either.
