Title (EN) EXERCISE AND TONING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL D'EXERCICE ET DE MUSCULATION
Abstract:
(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 centre 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.
(FR) Appareil pour exercer et/ou tonifier les muscles de la taille, de hanches, et des cuisses, composé par exemple d'un support circulaire (1) sur lequel l'utilisateur s'assied. Ce support repose en son centre sur une butte (2) qui lui permet de s'incliner en diverses directions radiales par rapport à un axe vertical. Ledit support (1) peut être installé de sorte que sa périphérie repose sur un socle (3) et que le point de contact entre le support (1) et le socle (3) se déplace circulairement autour du socle à mesure que l'utilisateur fait avancer la direction de l'inclinaison circulairement par un mouvement circulaire des hanches. Dans une autre version de l'appareil, un dispositif de commande permet de modifier l'inclinaison du socle afin qu'elle progresse de manière circulaire.
