48 Ways to Fake Fitness

From Offbeat Outfits to Flexible Furniture

— September 12, 2010 — Lifestyle
Many people want to achieve an ideal strength and slimness without the effort, and a number of these ways to fake fitness have actually proven to be quite popular.

Who would turn down clothing that trims your waist, boosts your butt or builds your biceps? When the gym seems too far away, a simple at-your-desk workout could be very appealing. A number of products even claim to tone your body while you sit or peel off the pounds with a simple pill. There really are endless ways to fake fitness.
