Coin-op workout aerobics for Japanese schoolgirl

Your Ad Here

The conbini fitness is hot for Tokyo girls. Taking its name from the Japanese word for convenience store, these health outlets offer coin-op workout stations for impulse exercising.

The contraptions' foot pads churn up and down and back and forth at up to 1,560 times per minute. (One 500 yen coin — about $4.10 — buys 10 minutes.) Maintaining your balance while you shake supposedly has an aerobic effect, though users never break a sweat.

And in case girls are worried about pervs ogling their jiggle, many of the clubs are ladies-only or feature privacy partitions. Link
