Which Exercise Products That You See On TV Should You Buy And Which Exercise Products Should You Avoid
Please click on the pod button to your left to listen to this weeks Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy podcast, the funniest weight loss and fitness radio show on the internet. Our new and improved podcast has no commercials. This week Doctor Fitness gives you the skinny on separating fact from fiction when it comes to As Seen On Tv weight loss and exercise gadgets. Here's 3 of the Doctor's tips to avoid being ripped off by those late night infomercials.#1. The cost of these products are too little. A commercial quality treadmill at a gym costs from $4000 to $5000. $1000 sounds like a lot of money for a product from TV but when it comes to this kind of exercise equipment it really isn't that much. #2. Don't buy any piece of equipment without trying it out. That way you'll see if it's sturdy and if it will fit your body. #3. Don't believe the hype. those models demonstrating the product didn't get that way by using that product.
