It is with a heavy heart Im here to announce I hath failed you.
This post was supposed to be a Tuesday Testdrive (review) and, instead, Im here to wave the white flag o’surrender.
(cue mournful music)
The product I wholly & utterly adored the promise of?
(I’ll wait while you click on the link. You simply must.)
People, I had visions of my Jyzing all around town.
Jyzing as I chased the toddler about the yard.
Jyzing as I wandered the aisles in my local grocery.
Jyzing as I did my morning interval training on the recumbent bike.
Alas, it was not to be.
The concept of burning more calories through the addition of an upper body component to my cardio? WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?
What’s not to love.
For me it was the Jyze.
To know me is to know how I hate to give a negative review.
This isnt a negative review, however, to the extent this MizFit never Jyzed an inch.
Now, the Jyze is *thoughtfully* sent to consumers prewound so I must emphasize that, were you not proud Mama to a Toddler Tornado who ‘helped’ & UNwound the device for you, you may quickly & easily have gotten to Jyzing.
Me? Not so much.
After the Tornado unwound the device, I grabbed the explanatory insert & commenced what I thought would be a quick rewind.
And I struggled.
And I twistedturnedlooped&tugged.
I grabbed my laptop & clickclicked over to the Jyze site where they explain three different methods to rewind the product.
Method one? FAIL. (interspersed with shouts of COME ON JYZE! Dont fail me now! You’re up on Tuesday!)
Method two? FRICK! This thing is killing me! Didnt work.
Method three: CRAP! Couldn’t quite master it either.
And believe me, Im not conveying well, either, how silly slap happy I became toward the end of attempt number three.
In all honesty, I received a pretty damn good core workout whilst laughing at myself & my lack of Jyze winding skillz.
Was I frustrated? Yes, but mainly because I’d be so eagerly anticipating hitting the streets of my ‘hood, Jyzing to my hearts content & seeing what the neighbors had to say.
Would they laugh? Would they long to join in? Would I grow fatigued? Would I be able to carry on a conversation wilst Jyzing?
All these questions were forced to remain unanswered.
Being the patient woman I am I called my husband at the office & pestered him until he came home waited until the Ren Man was free and sought his help.
Suffice it to say he didnt appreciate the fact I almost wet my pants laughing at his Jyze’ttempts.
He, too, read the insert, watched the video & then constructed his own method of winding involving his chin & some tape.
No (it didnt work) no (I didnt get it on film. I tried, believe me.) and NO (DICE with the winding).
Much to my chagrin, I was still 100% Jyze-free.
Now, in defense of the company their customer service is amazing.
When I emailed saying I was having trouble figuring out how to wind the device mere moments after hitting send I received an email response.
The individual gave me two other suggested tactics (didnt work for me) & an offer to call if I still couldn’t wind the Jyze.
I didnt call.
I havent talked to some family members in months it’s so freakin’ hard to make a call with the Tornado underfoot.
So that’s really it, people.
I give you the Tuesday Testdrive that never was (&, perhaps, the Jyze if you make a really good case and will pay for shipping.).
