Feeling sick of yoga or Pilates? Is your boot camp feeling more like blah camp these days? How about trying the latest cross training gadget out there?
The Orbital 360 is the first and only 3 dimensional, adjustable, constant, consistent resistance, multi-plane, cross training apparatus that is the newest (and coolest, might I add) way to exercise. This apparatus is also the first and only Functional Core Stability device used for Stretch, Strength and Cardiovascular exercises combined and the user need never leave the machine to accomplish all three planes of movement. To me it looks like no other workout gadget I have ever seen -- Almost like some sort of contraption that you would use to steer a huge crane on a construction site. Since overuse is one of the most common exercise related injuries, the Orbital 360 prevents that by allowing the user to work all sorts of muscles rather than limiting the movements like most machines and free weights. Very cool.
I am all for a little variety in the workout program so you know I can't wait to try it out. Unfortunately for me (and everyone else who does not live in the LA area) the only class using the Orbital 360 is Crunch in LA with the Orbital 360 Rocket Workout.

Well, kinda. For $250,000 you can get yourself your very own pink rocket belt and take personal travel to a whole new level! That's right, a Jetson style jet pack custom-made for your own weight and size; the service even includes fully-tested custom rocket belt, a machine to help you make your own rocket fuel, hands-on training including 10 flights in your own rocket belt and expert support from inventor Juan Manuel Lozano.
"I have flown everything—gyrocopters, helicopters and aerobatic planes,” Lozano told Popular Science. “The rocket belt is the hardest. But you can learn to fly a rocket belt, because you can learn to fly anything. It just takes time.” read more
