Cellubike: Not Just Any Bike

At first glance, this bike looks like it is straight out of a video arcade but once you look a little deeper, you'll see that it's actually an exercise bike.

How funny is this picture from the website? Now let's get serious -- Unlike invasive liposuction or over-the-counter anti-cellulite treatments that don't work, the Cellubike claims to engage the body's own force to actually eliminate, not disguise or forcibly remove cellulite from the body. While peddling at 70% of your maximum heart rate, a certified technician will then position the array of infrared lights onto your cellulite.

Worried about being a burn victim? Me too, but the makers claim that the infrared opens up the capillaries and blood vessels and allows for a better blood flow into the cellulite. Then the cardio flushes the cellulite through your system and then out of your system.

Cellubike claims:

You will see these residues leaving your system through the sweat glands as well as your excretion system within several hours after a session.

Right. I am, as you can imagine, skeptical. However, this thing is new to the U.S. so let's give it some time. So to find the location (and prices) of a CelluBike appointment near you, visit the CelluBike site.

Hey Cams! I did actually do that too and it is a good point. I've got a doctor, a naturopath and a chiropractor I see regularly so check with all three and my personal trainer to get a collective opinion. Cams has a great point, before you just arbitrarily start taking a supplement you should check with your doctor, pharmacist, health practitioner or naturopath BEFORE you start taking it. Several things sold over the counter will counteract prescription medication and you may end up with a very serious problem. Do not ever just start taking supplements without consulting someone first! Getting back to the blueberry/cellulite thing, do you think I can find that leaflet? I looked all over the darned place and I can't find it! I'll bet I used it to set the kindling in my fireplace. Didn't think I'd need it again! LOL! I'll get another leaflet and I'll post it to a blog under my profile if I can. I think you can do that here somehow...I'll figure it out! Have a good night, everyone!

You may want to do research on your own..taking supplements can be DANGEROUS, especially if you don't know exactly what is in them. Doctors can be paid to pimp out products, too.

Mmmm, I'd heard that too. The PT I'm seeing has said the point of the blueberry concentrate was to help strengthen the vascular and circulatory system to help bring bloodflow to areas that were lacking, their theory was that cellulite is a symptom of bad bloodflow. Support good bloodflow and the cellulite will break down, or something to that effect. It's the same sort of theory as "massage the cellulite away", massage bringing more bloodflow to the area etc, etc. I'm at work at the moment and the write up is at home, I'll try to get it online when I get back home. Not disagreeing with you though, it is genetic and it is how fat is distributed but supposedly this is one of the ways people are trying to get rid of it. Or smooth it out, or whatever...

Sorry vigilante but cellulite doesnt have anything to do with your vascular system. . .youre probably thinking varicose veins. Cellulite is how the fat is distributed, and its genetic. The only way to lessen it is to lose weight.

Hmmm, I agree! Something does seem very suspicious about this! I've been tackling my cellulite recently by the same approach, opening capillaries, but by a different method. My PT told me about blueberry concentrate capsules, they're an antioxidant that's SUPPOSED to strengthen vascular health and increase positive bloodflow. I've been taking them for about a month (one 500 mg capsule daily) and so far the only change I've noticed is that I'm not as red-faced when I run. Haven't looked at my arse recently to see if there's any change... And I'm afraid if I ask one of the kids to check out my butt it might scar them for life... Anyways, worth asking your doctor or nutritionist about if you're interested in working on cellulite removal!

Something about this seems highly suspicious.

I regularly workout with a heart rate monitor and its SO HARD to get my HR up to 70% when I run. I can't imagine how hard it would be it get it up that high on a recumbant bike. omg.
