Does the Thighmaster Really Work?

The Thighmaster is an effective tool for developing muscle strength in the muscles of the inner and outer thighs. It provides resistance to both abduction (knee deviation from the body center) and adduction (bringing the knees together).

The Thighmaster is used as part of an overall body toning program. However, working on specific muscles of the body does not result in spot fat reduction. Resistance exercises do not shrink fat cells; rather, they grow muscle cells. Spot reduction is a myth. Fat cells are shrunk only when fat is converted to energy, which is used up actively by the body. A proper diet combined with an exercise program results in both fat loss and muscle toning.
