Would you like to get in shape in half the time it usually takes? If so, you may want to try the new workout program that acually shocks you while you exercise
It does not involve a personal trainer zapping you with a cattle prod every time you slow down on a treadmill.
There's a gym in New York offering a new workout where you get ELECTRIC SHOCKS while you exercise. The shocks help activate and stimulate your muscles, so you'll get results in HALF the time it would normally take.
A gym in New York City called Shock Therapy hooks people up to special suits that are powered with something called Electronic Muscle Stimulation Technology.
So while you're exercising, it's sending safe little pulses of electricity through your muscles, which helps activate them and makes the training more effective.
And they say that the shocks are so effective that you'll get results in HALF the time it would normally take. Their workouts only last 30 minutes, but the benefits to your body are just like the ones you'd get if you worked out normally for an hour.
They're charging $50 per class for the treatment. And there's no word on whether they plan to expand their program to other gyms or other cities.
