Six-packs, here we come! [Mar. 20th, 2007|09:36 pm]

[Current Mood |amused[smirk]]

On the front cover of Yahoo today was a blurb about how, thanks to the movie 300, there are tons of websearches by people desperate to figure out how so many actors managed to get so damned buff.

And I realized that this is the perfect business opportunity for the person looking to make millions by starting the next exercise craze. Seriously, there is a fortune to be made in branding here!

Just call it ThermoPilates.

Oooo, that's a good one. :)

Of course, if you really wanna be a big buff Spartan you gotta have a nice young boyfriend. Good thing a lot of the movie going public don't know nuthin' 'bout history.

Indeed. It makes me smirk, even if I haven't seen the movie yet.

The double flute action really got me, though I would admittedly have missed it if I hadn't seen it pointed out earlier.

lol... or they could just go to the website that tells them all about the 300 workout from Gym Jones
(http://www.gymjones.com/knowledge.php?id=35)

But I love the joke... you just kinda scare me when you're that punny!

p.s. maybe you should tell the guys at Gym Jones about ThermoPilates - after all, given their own name, they'd probably adopt it! :)

There's probably a copyright issue, but that would be funny.

Is it wrong that the article turned me on a bit? (No, it's not wrong.)

Hehe. My fiance's reaction to that movie was "I need to go back to the gym."

I'd still rather have my man spend that time with me that he could be obessed with getting a six pack. Yes they are eye candy, but rarely does it translate into real life.

:D

Yes, even "I don't like muscles" girls like me would be paying their boyfriends to take the class, if it will help them look like the men of "Sparta"!
