I was up early this morning and had to wait an hour before I could go to the Bear for coffee. I was looking through the program guide and started watching all the infomercials for different workouts. The funny things is they all claimed to have found the "Scientifically Proven" way to lose weight and all these miracle testimonies of people it worked for.
The thing I noticed is that if you watch the workouts long enough you will notice the same moves on different programs...hmmmmmm... The thing they don't tell you is when you get it in the mail it usually comes with a diet guide (HUH???) well go figure diet and exercise together.
I think what the marketers count on is people thinking "well gee I can get this program and still eat that bag of chips" HELLO Cletus no you can't. You eat that bag of chips and do you know what it will take just to work that off?
Now I am not downing these programs I have personally bought P90X and 10 minute trainer both of which I love. I just think people ought to look more closely at what they are getting into before diving in. I mean come on you can do all those workouts right here at SP and the videos are free. SP will set up a workout schedule for you if you need it... so think before you buy and make sure that you have the basics under control before you dive into a program that is so intense that all you did is spend 100-200$ for a dust collector.
Have a great week meeting your goals
