Actress Tomoka Kurotani, 33, has made her first steps into the fitness industry with the upcoming release of her exercise DVD set called “Whipness – Riding Workout,” in which she uses an elastic whip to exercise while simulating horse riding.
Kurotani, a keen horse rider for over 10 years, said the muscles used in riding have helped her maintain her slim body and excellent posture. The four-disc DVD set sees Kurotani making use of an elastic “whip,” which offers different resistance depending on where the user holds or puts it. Users are to follow her lead as she holds various poses and moves in a way similar to riding a horse, including when crossing a river or jumping over obstacles.
Kurotani appeared on TBS program "Saturday Night Chubaw!" last weekend to promote “Whipness,” demonstrating the workout while showing off her own good form. She said: “You get the benefits of horse riding without leaving your home. Let’s work together and aim for that sexy body!”
The DVD set, including elastic whip, goes on sale this Friday for 10,500 yen.© Japan Today
