  • Description

    "The famous wheel exerciser is now a regular all-round fitness producer on the Continent - "

    Two dozen men and women ride wheel exercisers, large metal wheels in which they stand and roll around. Various shots of the girls as they perform various routines making patterns with the wheels - kind of synchronised rolling! As some of the wheels roll along, other people jump onto them and hold on while they turn. A group of people stand and watch the display.

    "When you're tired of just whirling along, try these new variations." Those doing the display hold hands. They turn around in their wheels and spin around to face the other direction - pretty impressive (but hard to describe!) They spin without using their hands.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 532.

    Note: one of the best of the exercise wheel films - there are quite a few.
