View Full Version : Didn't catch the name of the channel, but I need this!

The other day I was cleaning about the house
when a really neat exercise thing came on television.
It was on one of those home shopping channels,
but it was not QVC and I don't think it was Home
Shopping Network. Are there other home shopping
channels out there?
This thing was right up my alley, it did all of the
toning exercises I need when I'm stuck inside during the
winter and unable to push shovels, mowers and
Anyhow, when I told Wub about it, he asked why I didn't
order it, and now I can't remember the channel for the
life of me!
Can anyone name a few of the channels?
Then I'll search the various online sites to see if I can
find the item number to order.
LOL. Silly me!

What was it?
Maybe you can do a :google: search for 'as seen on tv' and look for it on some of those websites. ;)

This thing was advertised by a lady who used to
be heavy and then she lost a lot of weight. She
had two or three other helpers in the background
showing different ways of using it. They kept showing
her before picture. It comes with a demonstration
It was this long bench thing that you lay on, sit on,
etc. You adjust the tension by moving the bed part of it
up or down, so you can be a beginner or put it on
the furthest peg for advanced.
Hmm. I'll go switch the tv around to see if I can

well, its and interesting name for a product.
But as for me, I don't want a body like a rock!
I want to be fluid as water, steady, strong and flexible at the same time like a green tree.
But, let us know how you like it

World Records, and my son could not believe that
