Tony Little’s Gazelle in The IT Crowd [Gadgets I never use]

Posted in Gadgets with tags , , on July 29, 2008 by The Quintessential Geek

You can see the handle of a clearly unused Tony Little Gazelle (it is folded) on the floor, next to the wall found to the right of Jen’s desk, as she walks past it to greet a visitor to the IT department.

My wife and I purchased this no-impact exercise machine when it was popular 5 years ago, not only so I can build abs like Tony, but also because it was so revolutionary, and the infomercial was very convincing. After all, 30 minutes a day exercise is more than I was getting anyways, so what did I have to lose ? That trend only lasted 3 weeks for me. My wife, on the other hand, loves it, so I set it up for her in the basement in such a way that she can watch Oprah while working out. While she does that, I think I’ll stick to my daily exercise program of getting out of bed.
