About Thigh Train
“International Fitness Celebrity” Jennifer Niccoli exclaims there’s a new, better way to get the thighs you want called the Thigh Train. Jennifer says this sliding resistance-based fitness device for the feet makes it so easy to get sculpted thighs, “it’s insane!”
Thigh Train is marketed by Telebrands, a company so ubiquitous in the As Seen On TV marketplace that they even invented the logo. Telebrands is based in Fairfield, NJ and has been accredited by the BBB since 2007. Currently, they receive an A- rating, because although they do have a high number of complaints, the BBB says it’s relative to their size and most claims are promptly resolved.
How Thigh Train Works
The Thigh Train does indeed look like a curved train track; there are two sliding foot rests that run along it. These are controlled by resistance bands, of which you receive 3 different sizes with your purchase.
To use Thigh Train, “choo”se the resistance level you desire (they claim the levels go from “mild to wild”) and attach the corresponding bands. Then, slide your thighs together and apart, with the resistance providing the workout.
Ms. Niccoli says expensive gym equipment that performs a similar task has to be adjusted to work both in and out, but not the Thigh Train. She calls this “Fast Track Technology” which she claims is patented and tightens and tones right where you need it most – the video suggests this area is the legs, abs, and, of course, thighs.
Best of all, she says Thigh Train is fun! She adds that it’s portable for use anywhere, including home, work, or even the pool, and that it folds in half for easy storage.
Thigh Train includes:
- Thigh Train
- No Strain Thigh Train DVD
- Train Right Nutritional Plan
- 30 day “risk free” trial
Thigh Train Pricing, Shipping, and Returns
They say you can try Thigh Train for 30 days for $14.99 plus $9.99 shipping/handing. If you decide you aren’t on board with your Thigh Train, they say you can send it back within this time and be refunded your $14.95 (but not the $9.99 S & H). If you do decide to keep it, you will be billed 3 additional payments of $19.99 making the true total $84.91.
Bottom Line: Is Thigh Train a Scam?
Resistance training has been shown to be an effective way to build muscle and can result in a more sculpted, toned look. But remember, you also need a good cardio workout as well as to exercise other parts of your body for true overall health (not to mention a healthy diet.) This machine may be “fun” and provide a little bit of a workout to your routine, but when you add up all the payments and fees, it’s quite expensive for what it is/does.
