I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this device, which claims to offer no-impact strength training. Not sure if this subs for horseback riding simulation, a seated exercise ball, or something bordering on an "adult toy" (watch the video to understand this one).

Gotta get back up on that toy, er, I mean horse...

As if people didn't avoid leg exercise enough already, now there's the CoreTrainer!

Looks like a great place to hang my pants!

From their website..."Introducing the Core Trainer from Panasonic -- a revolution in exercise equipment." What's that? You say you want a revloution? I say, do CrossFit!

From their website..."Easy Results!
It's easy to start building your core with the Core Trainer. Simply sit and ride for 15 minutes." Easy results? No such thing in our world.

I can find something else to do w/ $2K. No thanks!

This is along the lines of a Sybian or that car that Mr. Garrison invented on South Park.

I'll take a pass. Imagine how much good equipment you can buy for $1999.

That's actually a throwback device. There were a number of mechanical exercise devices popular in gyms back about 1900-1914 era. There was one on the Titanic.

One was called, not making this up, an electric camel. Apperently it mimicked the movement of riding such a beast.

What if someone mounted a Sybian on top of the CoreTrainer? I can see the patent now...
