Have you ever wandered into the back corner of the thrift store, and scanned the crazy, outdated objects that gather dust there? VHS tapes, encyclopedias, and typewriters abound. In addition, you can also usually find hilarious workout equipment that you can grab for just a few bucks. Here are some funny items to keep your eyes out for!
This was a trendy item for ladies decades ago. It has a bow shape, and won’t take up much space in your home. Bust it out when you want to entertain some friends with your 80’s style workout!
They’re like dumbbells… but they move! When you pick up a shake weight, give it a jiggle and I promise you’ll get the giggles.
Retro Jump Rope
Snap up the next wooden-handled, neon pink, or leather jump ropes you find in the exercise-equipment aisle. If you try out some double dutch, you might get a flashback from years gone by. You’ll also get a good cardio session in! Don’t forget to look up some rump roping rhymes to get you jumping to a rhythm…
It’s funny how fitness trends have changed over the years. Second-hand shops are like little time capsules. Spend a few dollars on outdated exercise equipment and you’re sure to get a few good laughs — and a workout, as well!
