You mean these beasts haven’t made their way to Taiwan? This commercial has been all over Hong Kong terrestial TV and you can find the machines at any of the big malls.

A month or so ago, one of the consumer groups here did a study on them and found that they didn’t actually promote muscle tone or weight loss.

Truth be told, I haven’t been shopping for exercise machines in Taiwan’s big malls lately – I have no room in my apartment for them.

It’s been heavily advertised recently in Taiwan too – with Xiao S (major Taiwan female celeb) heading the campaign.

I saw these in Japan a couple of years ago. Similar advertising.
