Power Balance Bracelet Comments

Last week I wrote about my thoughts on the Power Balance Bracelet and I asked you guys what your take was on it.  These are the responses I got:

Gideon Maree (Pilates Instructor and Sports Masseuse)

Via Facebook: “One of my clients started wearing one of those bracelets about 2 weeks ago. During his Pilates sessions his balance was not any different. His first two days of wearing the bracelet he feelt very lightheaded,  after which it cleared up. This could be the bracelet or just being lightheaded for 2 days. I wont take the risk and hope it’s not the bracelet.”

Catherine Parker (Marathon Runner)

Via Twitter: “A new toy for boys”

Melvyn Quan (Iron Man Participant and Trail Runner)

Facebook: Sent this video which is on ESPN (the first couple seconds are an advert but the rest is very interesting)

Erik Vermeulen (Athlete & Behaviour Expert)

Twitter: He sent the same link as Melvyn.

Interesting that I got no comments FOR the bracelet – anyone out there who really believes in it?

    Awesome, let me know how it goes!

  2. My friend just gave me a power balance bracelet… Let’s see if it really works!

    haha! I just think it’s more of a mind over matter thing…whether you believe in eastern medicine (energy alignment etc.) or not, if you believe it will work then it will work – i.e. the placebo effect.

    I don’t believe in this at all. I’m too much of a scientist to be fooled by this sales gimmick. Those who believe they benefit or feel something…all in the mind. Well, that’s my opinion anyway.
