Lazy women deserve a second chance

“There’s no time to exercise, I don’t even have time for pee breaks!”

“Exercise makes me tired.”

“Stilettos crippled my toes; I can’t jog to save my life.”

“My muscles ache too much.”

“I’ll rather skip lunch.”

“Err, aren’t night time sessions good enough?”

Sounds familiar?  Well, if lazy and highly stressed women deserve a second chance, then I think it would have to come in the form of this.When I popped down the store last month, I was stumped as 3 yummy colours bade welcomingly at my fats. Er, at me.

Trust a woman’s senses to run amok in the presence of pretty colours and designs.

uKimono 3 colours

“So which colour has been the most popular? Has uKimono been selling well? ” I queried, knowing the second question came as a no brainer. But what the heck.

According to the polite young gentleman serving us, all colours have their fans.  A tremendous deal of research was conducted before deciding on the colours and design. Well done. I’m sold based on aesthetics alone. Five stars for the pretty daisy motifs.

But my main concern was – how is this pretty-looking ‘waist pouch’ going to help me?

When is the earliest I could see results? When and how often can I use it? How can the fabric be washed?  What is the shelf life? Do I need to replace the battery? Can I use it on a full stomach? What about heavy days?

Will OSIM be coming out with a cordless version?!

Why is the uKimono more expensive than the uZap?

Yes, I’m not the easiest customer to deal with, but hey, it’s only fair that I get the lowdown on what goes onto my body right?

I went straight for maximum power. Don’t you just tingle with breathless excitement when you anticipate the effects of something that promises to nail down your 35 year-old problems?

The initial sensation was a tad startling. It felt weird. Ticklish. Kinda like having an alien object burrowing its way towards the inner layer of fat on my tummy. A few minutes later, I got accustomed to the vibration/kneading and relaxed.

I must have over relaxed. The next thing I knew, my bladder was doing its own vibrating. I realised that prior instructions to pee before usage had slipped my mind.

Damn. I rushed to the little girls’ room before resuming.  To make my baby work harder, I decided to do the horse stance at the same time. 15 minutes later, I dutifully gulped down a large glass of warm water to clear the toxins.

Interestingly, many uKimono users experienced the same effects and have since ‘wised up’. Some Tweeted about the initial itchy sensation. It’s the sleepy muscles waking up, so says the OSIM staff. Others felt that 10 mins was far too short a session. They wonder if prolonged usage on a specific area could cause possible side effects. One even panicked after falling asleep while using his uKimono, not knowing that it stops automatically after each cycle!

Personally, it was a case of alternating between different areas of the body before coming back to where I first started. I have a simple top-to-bottom system that covers my tummy, thighs and butt in that order, so that after a 30 minute cycle, I can ‘safely’ go back to my tummy attack again. On days when time was more of essence than ever, at least I know that one full cycle has been covered. The guilt factor as well!

I believe the users can be grouped into 2 larger camps – one which depend totally on the slimming product while throwing calorie charts into the trash bin. Another will be those who would physiologically be affected into eating less and injecting forms of exercise into their routine, so as to maximise their investment.

Do you belong to either?

Useful Health Workouts

Dear blog readers, once again OSIM brings you useful health tips that you could use to make your life a healthier and better one!

Regular massages complement well with regular workouts. Workouts not only help to keep you in shape, but also lower your stress level. Try out these following workouts to complement with your massages:

  • Lie face up with legs on the floor and arms extended behind you, palms up. Lift left leg and right arm. Grab ankle as you twist upper body and turn head slightly to the left. Hold for 1 count. Switch sides to complete 1 rep. Do 5 to 7 reps.
  • Lie on your left. Cross your arms in front of chest, legs straight, feet together. Roll onto your back, place hands on the floor behind hips and sit up as you draw your knees toward your chest.
  • Lower your legs to floor as you turn and lie on your right side. Repeat back to left side to complete 1 rep. Do 5 reps.

You could choose to do these workouts after your massage sessions and they do complement nicely with your new uKimono too! So after a recommended 20 minutes of uKimono session, go challenge yourself with these workouts to make sure that you have a slimmer and toned silhouette.

So unless your idea of exercising is running down for your bus every single workday morning (like me), you know you’ve got to do something about it! Go try this out today and see the difference in your fitness level.

Testimonial from Juanna Lee about OSIM uRobic

How did you know about the uRobic?

I got to know about the uRobic when it first came out in the stores, I think it’s one of the electrical stores and they have this video playing and what attracted me was the video because the equipment looks like the iGallop. But it has the twisting motion and it looks really easy.


What were your expectations of the uRobic?


Actually I didn’t really expect much because it’s just a twisting motion and it looks really easy. So I didn’t expect it could actually help me lose anything at all. I just find it a bit fun. It looks a bit interesting.


What workouts did you do on the uRobic?


My favorite is the walking motion, like the running pose with the legs lifted up. I feel like it’s really easy but you can feel the tension on the arms, on the tummy and on the thigh and legs when you lift up your legs. But it’s really easy movements, it’s just a repetitive movement and you do feel tired after some time.


How effective was the uRobic? Did it meet your expectations?


I lost 2 inches off my waist as measured and it was a surprise to me .


What changes have you noticed after using the uRobic? (Cite actual statistics i.e. lost 2 inches on hips, or attitude change i.e. more confident to wear bikini).


After the exercise, I noticed that I don’t feel that hungry during my daily routine.


How would you rate the performance of the uRobic? (Rate from a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the highest, elaborate reason for such rating).


4, because it’s a sitting down equipment and maybe for myself I prefer standing and moving. Because sitting down it feels like the butt doesn’t really work out that much.


Would you recommend the uRobic to others? Why?


I actually recommended to my friends because this equipment you can put it in front of your TV and you just sit on it and just do. Or probably before bedtime or when you get up, you just sit on it and you do your thing.

What convinced you to use the uRobic?

I actually wanted to slim down for quite a long time already but lets say if I work it out at the gym or what, I’d have to walk out of the house. So, I think the uRobic is quite useful and I can watch TV while I use it at home. Because it’s more convenient and then I can have my shower right after that.


What were your expectations of the uRobic?


I was aiming to have a slender waist and of course together with the weights attached to it then I will have a, maybe slim down of the arms and thighs. My major target is the waist.


Was the uRobic easy to use? Please explain your answer.


Yeah, it’s very easy to use. But at first when I was at the session, I thought that without the instructor’s help, I would not be able to work it out that good. I took part in the uRobic challenge then only I got to use it.


How often did you use the uRobic? Describe your exercise routine.


I use about 2 to 3 times a week only. And for each time I will use for about 30 minutes including warm up and cooling down exercise.


Did you enjoy using the uRobic?


Yes, I enjoy using it because it’s very fun. Even my friends who came to my house, when they saw the uRobic, they also wanted to use it and they actually tried it. Each of them tried it. They saw it from the TV commercials and they actually recognize it as the uRobic.


How effective was the uRobic? Did it meet your expectations?


It really did meet my expectations, out of my expectations. Because it’s actually for 2 to 3 times a week then I can lose 2 to 5


What changes have you noticed after using the uRobic? (Cite actual statistics i.e. lost 2 inches on hips, or attitude change i.e. more confident to wear bikini).

I notice my arms and thighs are more toned up when I use with the weights.


How would you rate the performance of the uRobic? (Rate from a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the highest, elaborate reason for such rating).


4.5, because it’s quite bulky. I have to shift it sometimes because my house is very small, it’s because of the space constrain.


Would you recommend the uRobic to others? Why?


Yes, definitely because it’s really convenient and a fun exercise to work it out if you want to slim down and I will certainly continue to use it.

I have participated OSIM’s uRobic event held at Great World City on 15 January 09. On the event itself, there was a mass workout session with cool perfect music while exercising. The crowning of the OSIM’s uRobic challenge winner who has lost so much weight of 4 inches on her waist with the use of OSIM’s uRobic was also witnessed! Surely everyone had a great time.  At the event, beside product trials there were a series of programs and quiz arranged.

I would also like to thank OSIM for a fantastic event and has truly informed a lot of people that exercising can make your daily regime a fun activity. You can workout while doing various other activities. Yes, you can watch your favorite show on the television while twisting your body out on OSIM uRobic, chat with your partner and can also listen to music.

OSIM’s uRobic is truly an exemplary and innovative exerciser! The twisting motion really works on my tummy and waist! (Go and Try! it can work on yours too!) I felt the burning and sweat while using OSIM uRobic.


Meeting new friends with all the participants who have joined during this whole event was also one thing. Not to mention that there were lots of exclusive offers and goodie bags OSIM has offered to everyone. It was a blast! I would highly recommend OSIM uRobic to my family and friends so as to experience the wonder it can offer. J
