'Hawaii Chair' takes exercise sitting down
Hula aerobics in a chair? We have our doubts.
Appearances notwithstanding, we take our health seriously here at Crave and try to highlight as many fitness-related technologies as possible, ranging from theto . We've even passed along some for the more adventurous out there.
But this was the first time we'd ever heard of anything like the "Hawaii Chair." Although it's tempting--the name alone is stress-reducing--we're not quite sold on its aerobic effectiveness: All you're supposed to do is sit down and let the $350 chair swivel your hips in a circular, hula-style motion--like your very own Don Ho moment.
As much as we're drawn to the idea of dropping pounds while watching reruns of Hawaii Five-0, we have to agree with Shiny Shiny on this one: "I could hula my butt, waist and thighs to honed perfection by sitting on a revolving seat (mounted on a 2800 rpm motor), or I could eat sensibly, walk lots and not care." Does this mean no more chocolate macadamia nuts?
