Frugal Fitness: Reduce Your Waist or Waste Your Money

by Greg Landry, M.S.

Hi Greg,
I was watching an infomercial yesterday (something I don't usually do) and saw an ad for the XXXXXX machine. This is a machine that helps women exercise those problem areas, like hips, thighs, buttocks. It is supposed to help by fatiguing the muscles faster than if you used nothing (less work-out time, yeah!) and helping keep the correct form. I was wondering if you have seen this machine or know how good it is. I am seriously thinking about trying this one. If you aren't familiar with it, they have a website at XXXXXXXX. Thanks for checking this out and giving me your professional opinion!

Hi Gail,
Spot reduction is a myth! Don't waste your money! Get out and walk and get some dumbbells for weight training.
