Which Exercise Products Should You Buy And Which Exercise Products Should You Avoid

As you know the Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy podcast is the funniest weight loss and fitness radio show on the internet. Great News! Our new and improved podcast is commercial free.

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 are 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. #4. Instead of buying a big piece of exercise equipment start a walking program - all you need are good sneakers, a heart rate monitor, an mp3 player or an Ipod and a partner. Or if you don't like walking buy an exercise ball, some bands or an exercise dvd or video. #5. If you insist on buying a treadmill or other piece of cardio equipment you are much better served by buying a piece of used or refurbished commercial equipment.
