Make Your Own Back2life Exercise Machine

photo of a woman using a back2life machineI was bad and stayed up a little later than usual last night, but just when I was about to switch the TV off and go to bed, I saw this contraption being advertised. It was so ridiculous, I just had to stick around for a few minutes and watch it. From watching the infomercial, I noticed that all the person does is lay on their back, put their feet on this machine and gently push down. That's it! I actually started laughing when I saw this. However, when they announced the price for this miraculous contraption, I started to choke on my diet Pepsi. Do you want to take a guess as to how much they are asking for this thing? Did you guess $19.95? Well, if you did, you would be ever-so-wrong. How about 2 easy payments (I love that term) of $19.95? Nope, keep guessing.

Try FIVE easy payments of $19.95. Can you believe that there are people out there that will rush to their phones and order this piece of junk? I have one question: where are these people? I would love to find out how I can lead these people to my site. I have a very easy-to-use Amazon link they can use and once there, they could go hog-wild and buy the place out. I mean, if they can throw away over $200.00 (including processing and shipping) on this thing, they can surely part with a few hundred at Amazon.

Now for the kicker: does this thing actually work? I have no idea, but if you truly cannot live without this machine, I will share something with you that will allow you to save $200.00...

  1. Grab a pillow

  2. Lay down in front of your favorite sofa or chair

  3. With your butt against the edge, place your feet on top of the cushion

  4. using your legs, gently press downward

  5. repeat for twelve minutes


There, I just saved you $200.00. Now, might I interest you in...

  4. I've seen that infomercial. I watched it because I have back problems and I wanted to see what they were going to do. I could not believe how much they were asking for that junk. I like your suggestion much better.

  5. Ann: I used to have a lot of back problems as well. I sprained my back at work several years ago and up until a few years ago, it's been a problem. However, when I started gently exercising it, it has gotten much better.
