Is it good enough as a lazy way of exercising?
Effective in keeping fit?

Trying to exercise without leaving the house :D

I've bought something similar from okgawa.. i was told by the sales girl that it will be effective if i stand on it at least 30minutes a day.. i can even lose my flabby arms.. but end up it din work.. :x

the only thing which i find it usefull is that when i'm having constipation, standing on the machine for 10minutes will ease me in toilet.. :oops:

I think working with some light weight is very effective for the arms. for the flabby stomach, need some slow running + daily crunching.

not really. Flabby stomach means there's a layer of fat around the area. To cut down on the fat, you need intense exercise that reaches 80% of your maximum heart rate. Forget about the slow running, do sprints.
Typically, it's called HIT, High Intensity Training. This really burns up the fat.

Daily crunching wll help to firm up the abdominals, however, you're not going to see the results because of the layer of fat that covers up your toned abdominals, so you will still look flabby. It's like someone with a good bod wearing loose fitting clothes. Get rid of the fats first.

I recommend a good massage chair for couch potatoes. The fats just gets vibrated out of the body and you can collect it in a pan at the bottom of the chair. Get the models with integrated pans at the bottom for greater convenience.
Thereafter, you can use the fats to fry potato chips.
Don't worry about the oil you're ingesting. Go back to step one again and get the fats vibrated away. Store any unused fats in the freezer compartment to avoid it going rancid.

Come on, this a forum for sharing. You're welcome if you've constructive input. But is there a need to be so sarcastic :scratchhead:

Anyway my BMI is 20. Did I mention anywhere I have fats to spare for your fries ?

I'm tempted too :D
Only drawback is the fixed space a threadmil occupies.
