DUBLIN, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Louis Crowe, the CEO and founder of BionicGym, launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo that blasted past its initial funding goal of $20,000 within the first 24 hours. This campaign was launched to introduce the company's innovative new fitness device: The BionicGym. Photo - http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20161116/440466 BionicGym is a wearable neuro-stimulator for intense aerobic workouts and easy calorie-burning, that works by reproducing the calorie burning effects of shivering within the muscles, and simulates the benefits and effects of running a marathon, or engaging in strenuous aerobic exercise. So a user can actually get a work-out while watching TV at night, or while sitting at their desk during the day. The device has been tested and scientifically proven to be effective. Dr. Louis Crowe states, "I've even trained for a marathon - with no running, and no pounding the joints." The idea came to Dr. Crowe several years ago when he would get into the cold Atlantic Ocean so he could observe shivering, which is nature's way of burning calories. Crowe noticed that as he got colder he didn't shiver faster, but more and more of him shivered at the same rate (~7-8Hz), until even his teeth were chattering. This is nature's way of increasing body heat, which also burns calories without moving, and is not dependent on generating muscle tension or moving the joints.
