I've made some really stupid purchases over the years with weight loss in mind. I've put over 200 miles but under 5 months of use into a three or four hundred dollar bicycle...over 10 years ago. I forgot to cancel a pill subscription and by the time I stopped it and sent back the order (without using it nor getting a refund - not going there, I'm still in a good mood right now) I'd spent around $300. But the one from last month is still with me. Sitting behind me on the futon in the office is an opened, but not used TOWER 200 from Body by Jake.
Here's the gist, it is a cabled weight machine without the machine. It hooks on to any door and instantly you have a weight machine in your home. It comes with an eleven minute work out routine from MMA Fighter, Randy "The Natural" Couture. Sounds too good to be true you say? Eleven minutes? Who couldn't find eleven minutes for their health and ego? [Waving hand and pointing down]
I'm feeling a twinge of guilt and a glimmer of curiosity as I type this. I will probably break this thing out now that my wife and daughter are asleep and at least watch the DVD. I'll post an official review once I've willed my lazy butt to use it! Wish me luck. Turns out it was good to get this off my chest...lets hope the follow through is half what I think it could be.
