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.
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.
This makes it safe for use by people who have joint or muscle injuries, as well as the average person, athlete, or anyone looking to burn extra calories for weight loss and fitness. BionicGym works by stimulating the muscles to 'shiver', which is a proven and effective way to train. BionicGym has been the focus of intense research for over 16 years, and is fully tested and proven - even in Zero-G with the European Space Agency.
The team at BionicGym has been working very diligently on all of the essential groundwork for their device, and they are now ready to begin the process of bringing it to market which is why they have launched their Indiegogo campaign, and hired a team of crowdfunding specialists to help them spread the word. As an added bonus with this campaign, the team is offering supporters the amazing opportunity to pre-order BionicGym at a substantial savings off of regular retail pricing.
They are even offering two supporters the opportunity to be involved in the prototype testing panel. When talking about this campaign, Dr. Crowe says, "We hope that with the support of the Indiegogo community BionicGym will help millions be fitter, healthier and, perhaps, even happier." It has already received accolades and extreme responses on social media, ranging from "This is a thing of beauty," to "Get off your fat a** and run." Full details about the team and BionicGym can be found on their Indiegogo campaign page.
BionicGym is the inspired brainchild of founder and creator Dr. Louis Crowe, a registered medical doctor. He founded BionicGym because of some breakthroughs he made in neurophysiology that were just languishing, which meant no one was benefiting from his research. He describes himself as a bit of a maverick who enjoys pushing the boundaries, and has worked with Biotronik's think tank in Berlin.
