So while we think this is crazy to wear, the concept isn’t too bad. We’ve been using saunas for years to dehydrate our bodies to lose water weight. It’s also why Rocky wears a hoodie and sweatpants when training — to drop that extra water.
The best part about the sauna suit is that you can wear it “while you work or play” as the suit seals in body heat. “A portable sauna bath.” Sounds steamy to us!
This modified dumbbell has sold actually quite well, but maybe more for its meme status than anything else. Heck, have any of y’all seen that “South Park” episode? Anywho, the piece of equipment, initially advertised for women, eventually had a male version produced.
The product's claims boasted that they could increase upper body muscle activity, compared to free weights. But while that may have been found in their lab, they definitely had more parody videos made than actual sales.
You’ve probably seen an influencer selling one of these with their discount code — and we’re pretty sure the Kardashians swear by them for their trim waists. It isn't surgery, or so they tell us.
However, the waist trainer is more crazy than cool. Over time, our bodies may shift to adapt to the apparatus, but it isn’t necessarily healthy — some people’s organs actually shift around to accommodate the smaller stomach area. Health first, folks.
This one sounds scarier than it actually is. It's also become a mainstay in most commercial gyms. You may know the brand TRX, which manufactures a popular version of this type of training equipment. You can use your body weight in different ways and overall, have a more intense, full-body workout.
It’s also great to use at home if you don’t have a gym membership. This seemingly crazy piece of equipment is actually a star performer.
Sleds may look like a modern torture device but there’s no doubt that what started off as a crazy piece of equipment is now a fat-burning hero. Athletes and high-level fitness lovers swear by them for improving conditioning, power and speed. All things we want, right?
So next time you see a sled at the gym, don’t approach with caution — load up that weight and give it a few pushes. You can thank us later.
