Every so often, I like to take a quick look at the latest & greatest products and consumer-reviews at Fitness Infomercial Review. Given the apparent popularity of products such as “Yoga Booty Ballet”, “Hip Hop Abs” or my personal favorite, “the RED exerciser” – I have to admit that I’m completely stumped as to why America is so out of shape.
My home state of Indiana just doesn’t get it though. Rather than attach the state seal of approval to “Turbo Jam”, Hoosiers are supposed to believe they can get fit by following impossible advice like “exercise” and “eat right”.
It’s not enough that Indiana provides a supportive website where residents can get even more advice and daily motivational emails to help keep on track, but Governor Mitch Daniels even created an “infomercial” of his own where he appears to be jogging and lifting weights. The nerve of this guy suggesting real exercise can be beneficial or even fun.
I’m confident that consumers will ultimately see through the ‘hype’ of good nutrition and regular exercise and the “Slendertone Ab Belt” will once again reign supreme.
