Voa今日趋势:LadyGaga和LBJ秀老式健身器材引关注V


     
     
     This is What's Trending Today.
     If you are a fan of Lady Gaga or the National Basketball Association,
     It is called the VersaClimber.
      of a stepper and climber. It involves moving your arms and legs. It looks like a device you might hang clothes on, but it is really for exercise.
      a VersaClimber at gyms. It is not as popular as other workoutmachines.
     But that may be changing.
      the VersaClimber to get ready for her energetic halftime performance at the Super Bowl earlier this year.
     LeBron James, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team, three weeks after the Cavaliers won the NBA championship.
     James has since introduced his teammates to the machine.
     The machine seems to work. Viewers were impressed with Lady Gaga's show at the Super Bowl. And the Cleveland Cavaliers have done well in this year's NBA playoffs.
      on social media about the benefits of the exercise machine.
      VersaClimbers to get ready for its NBA playoff games against the Boston Celtics.
     One reader said the machine may even be getting more attention than the basketball games themselves:
     Dave McMenamin wrote the ESPN story. He said the Cavaliers have contests to see who can climb the greatest distance on the machines.
     Tristan Thompson plays for the Cavaliers. In the story, he said the VersaClimber is "the best machine in the weight room, but it's the one everyone hates the most."
     The magazine Men's Fitness published an article about the VersaClimber earlier this year. It said the machine provides one of the best workouts for weight loss.
     Brett Collins works for VersaClimber. He said the machine was at its most popular about 30 years ago.
     But its popularity is rising once again. Now, some gyms are even offering VersaClimber classes for their members.
     And that's What's Trending Today.
