Title: (EN) Exercise and toning apparatus
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

An apparatus for exercising and/or toning the muscles of the waist, hips and thighs of a user, comprises an e.g. circular support (1) for the user to sit upon, the support (1) resting at its center on a mount (2) which enables the support to tilt in selected radial directions relative to a vertical axis. The support (1) may be arranged so that its periphery rests on a base (3) and the point of contact between the support (1) and a base (3) moves in a circle around the base as the user causes the direction of tilt to progress around in a circle by a circular movement of the hips. In a modified apparatus a drive means is provided to cause the direction of tilt of the support to progress around in a circle.
