Personal Trainers BEWARE!!!

In 2010, a Japanese Fitness Robot named Taizo will begin stealing all of your clients.

Initially designed as a rehabilitation robot for Japanese senior citizens, Taizo has performed well in its 5 test runs at group homes and community centers. During these tests, seniors found it easy and fun to mimic their robotic Richard Simmons.

In fact, company representaties were thrilled with how well Taizo interacted with the seniors.

Sadly, it was only after Taizo had left the building, did they find out that most of the seniors were senile and had confused Taizo for their grandchildren.

Taizo is expected to be ready for commercialization in 2010.
