OSIM IGallop Review - Does This Exercise Machine Work? Are missing benefits and lack of availability deal breakers?
My love of diet products is only bested by my passion for reviewing them J This time we took a look at the OSIM iGallop machine by checking out the function, side effects, clinical support and available customer service. User comments were a big part of the end decision. We gathered all the information and condensed it to give you the bottom line.
What is OSIM iGallop?
First off, the OSIM iGallop is an exercise machine that mimics riding a horse. We found limited information on the product, but we do know it targets the abdominals, thighs, hips and glutes. This is not an aerobic exercise, so calorie burn is minimal.
Brookstone looks to be the seller of OSIM iGallop, but we don’t think they are the creators of the machine. Reviews are limited and we were unable to find the product for sale online. We like that it works some of the largest muscles in the body and some of the comments are positive, but read on…
Benefits – “Not for Everyone”
The first thing that concerned us with OSIM iGallop was that results were limited, according to some reviews. “Abdominal machines are often trendy,” says our Research Editor. “This means they sell big for a while and then they fade away because they just don’t work as promised.”
One buyer said, “I used the machine for 45 minutes straight and did not feel any soreness the next day as if I had done any type of core exercise.”
Another shared, “It does feel like it helps a bit with core muscles. I don’t think there is much other exercise benefit.”
Some users did see the results they were looking for.
“I feel a definite difference in my thighs, and I also can tell that my lower back core muscles are stronger,” was one review.
A person also said, “The iGallop is very quiet and gives quite a good workout.”
Not Available Anywhere – “Can’t Buy It!”
The reviews we found spoke about price, effectiveness and results. However, none of the websites offering these experiences listed the OSIM iGallop for sale unless you’re willing to purchase it second-hand on Amazon. The list price reached as high as $425.
After our years of research, we’ve noticed a connection between the small things, like no measurable results, and a lesser chance of long-term success. If OSIM iGallop is not what people expected it to be, they’ll stop looking to buy it.
The Science – “Any Clinical Proof?”
We did not find an official website for OSIM iGallop, so there’s no place for the creator to share clinical studies. It’s evident that the horse-riding motion will work thighs and abdominals, but this machine will not work to promote weight-loss if used exclusively. You need cardio exercise in there, as well. We at DietSpotlight want science to back up claims and when that doesn’t happen we have difficulty standing behind the product.
The Bottom Line – Does OSIM iGallop Work?
Should you continue to look for the OSIM iGallop? Well, working the abdominals and thighs are an important part of exercise, but they are not the only aim. You have to work large muscle groups in repetitious motion to increase heart rate and burn more calories. We’re skeptical that this machine will give the dieter everything they need to reach weight-loss goals.
We’re all for exercising to lose weight, but you can add in a supplement made with researched ingredients to optimize your results.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. It is simple to find online, the price is right and science supports all four ingredients. They’ve been shown to help boost metabolism and fat loss. Plus, user reviews talk about results that everyone will love.
The company that makes Leptigen is confident enough that you’ll see result that they’re offering a Special Trial Offer.
