Crazy Fitness Fads You Might’ve Even Tried

Jiggling The Shake Weight

San Diego Union Tribune

One look at the Shake Weight caught the attention of comedic shows. The spring-loaded dumbbells were suggestive enough to catch the attention of South Park and Saturday Night Live. Even though the company sold over 2 million units within its first year of production, the health benefits were never quite proven. Sales have more than doubled ever since. It’s hard to tell whether people bought the Shake Weight for upper body strength or a little laugh.
