Those who exercise regularly are constantly on the lookout for the innovative exercising machines. Exercise freaks needs not be worrieds as Osim has launched it latest state-of-the-art product – the iGallop.
This revolutionary horse-riding exercise, the company avers, will give you the body shape you desire, effortlessly and with a lost of fun, right in the comfortable environs of your home. This therapy is based on the centuries-old belief that the rhythmic movement of riding a horse improves the rider’s cognitive skills, balance, posture and strength.
The iGallop can get one back in shape and lose weight too by dedicating just 30 minutes everyday to it. Researches show that 30 minutes of iGallop is equivalent of 60 minutes of brisk walking. The unique tri-axial horse riding action of the iGallop creates the multi-directional trot of a horse in its front, back and lateral movements. Seated on the iGallop, the major muscles groups on the abdominal, back and thigh areas are activated to maintain upright postures and balance. This results in toning up and firming the muscles as these are the portions which come under stress. As the iGallop sways and tilts in tri-axial motions, the left and the right muscles get strengthened to maintain balance. Further, the rider maintains balance by sitting in an upright posture which improves the standing posture also, giving one a straighter and taller look, enhancing one’s personality. At the same time, flexibility and mobility in the lower back also improve which reduces the incidence of backache.
