Shape Up! Wakes You Up, Works The Biceps

by AndrewD

How many times have you promised yourself that you were going to change your life? You what I’m talking about. Your swore to yourself you’d start waking up earlier, get some more exercise. And maybe for a week or so it was working just fine. But then what happens? You fall back into the same old habits.

It’s nothing to be ashamed of. You’re human. Without a strict ingrained regimen there is no way to change your life based on a simple personal ambition or promise. We need a little more of a push to turn away from our old habits. The Shape Up! alarm clock claims to got the skills to pay the bills when it comes to getting you up and ready for a new beginning.

Shape Up!, designed by Yuk Wang, is a dumbbell shaped alarm clock which forces you to get in some needed reps before it shuts the hell up. When the Shape Up! alarm goes off in the morning it will not shut off until you have completed 30 reps with the weight.

So it’s not the most pleasant thing to wake up too. But can you really count on yourself, without an aid, to change your life for the better? The Shape Up! clock still appears to be a prototype device, but we’re hoping something like this hits the mass market soon. We could sure use the boosted motivation.
