(HealthDay News) -- Before you invest in exercise equipment or a workout plan, make sure you're making a wise choice.

Here are suggestions from the American Council on Exercise:

  • Beware of plans that tout significant calories burned with little effort, or results with little work.
  • Be wary of equipment that's advertised as burning more calories than similar equipment.
  • Always read the fine print.
  • Don't rely on potentially fabricated testimonials.
