Exercising Good Judgment
Shopping for fitness equipment
(HealthDayNews) -- There's no quick and easy way to turn a beer belly into a washboard-like stomach, so beware of such claims made by salesmen or fitness commercials.
Before you buy, consider there tips provided by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission:
- Look for equipment that gives a total workout. That's the best way to get in shape.
- To firm and tone your body, you need to cut your calorie intake and up your exercise.
- Be wary of before and after snapshots of satisfied customers. You don't know what else was at work for these people.
- Before you buy, get the bottom line price. This includes sales tax, shipping and handling, delivery and set-up charges. Ask for details on warranties, return policies and customer service.
