CES 2007: Work your butt-muscles with a Giddyup horse simulator

CES 2007, Gadgets, Sport

giddyup.jpgHorses rule, but I’m a bit scared of them. If only there was a way to get the health and fitness benefits of riding a horse, without the horse part. WAIT! THERE IS! It’s called the Giddyup, and it’s ace. A company called Sunpentown is showing it at CES, and it’s due on sale in the US later this month.

The idea is that you sit on it, and it works your abs, back and legs. You can alter the speed to give yourself a harder workout too. Previous versions have been available in Asia, but this is the first time it’s come West, initially to the US, although sales representative Andrew Nakano says there’s no reason why it wouldn’t come out in Europe.

In the US, it’ll cost $599. Did I have a go on it? Of course I did. Watch the results below.
