*BRING BRING* "Who's there?" It's your newly toned biceps calling. With this wonderfully inventive dumb-bell telephone, you'll have guns like Linda Hamilton in no time. *Note, this is only effective if you're working in a call centre in a pre-headset era and you're taking 900 calls a day.

Shhhh! This guy has a secret. You think he's just walking around the office, but he's actually toning his legs with every step, thanks to these easily concealed leg weights. What's not so secret is the fact that he has terrible taste in shoes.

This is the JumpSnap. It allows you to skip without using a full skipping rope. I mean, yes, you could just skip on the spot and get the same amount of exercise, but where's the fun in that?

This nasty piece of work is The Entertrainer. It's a wireless heart rate device that is activated by your TV's remote control. You strap it to yourself when you're watching television, and when your heart rate drops to a certain level it turns the sound on the TV off. Once you've done some sit ups/danced around the living room and increased your heart rate, it turns it back on again. In summary, this piece of equipment is the worst housemate ever.

What you have right here is a pair of shoes with velcro on the base, and a velcro mat. The resistance is meant to tone your leg muscles. If you don't have the money to purchase this genius item, you can just go back to the worst nightclub you used to frequent when you were 18 and walk around on the carpet. Same effect.

One of life's great disappointments is that you can't ride a horse in your living room. The South Koreans understand this, and that's why they invented the Horse Riding Fitness Ace Power, which allows you to straddle a stool and gyrate around without having to leave the house or take off your business suit. Brilliant.

The things some people pay money for... although that skip rope that requires no jumping is looking mighty tempting.
