Description

Exercise and weight-loss advertising hasn't changed much in the past half-century. This male/female combo system offers Mickey Mantle's Isometric Minute a Day Gym with the come-on, "Invest 1 minute a day and have the muscles and physique of an athlete...without strain, without sweat, without exhaustive exercises." Meanwhile, fitness guru Bonnie Prudden's Figure Beauty and Vitality Kit promises, "In only 5 minutes a day...A slimmer, firmer, livelier figure—up-to-the-minute scientifically balanced method." The contraption inside, which has the NM appearance of never being used, consists of a metal handlebar, synthetic rope cord, and metal foot plate. The illustrated box (15-1/2 x 5-1/2 x 2") displays from a top view as EX despite some edge tears on the lid flaps.
