In the News -- Get the Skinny on Exercise Equipment

July 10, 2013
Infomercials may make exercise equipment easy to use with great results, but the product may not deliver what it promises, Jeannette Kopko of BBB in Dallas told Doug Magditch of CW33-TV, Dallas - Fort Worth.

Make sure you know how much it will really cost. "What’s the full total? Are there any additional fees? Shipping costs, restocking fees…” Kopko said.

Doug Magditch said that people infomercials may be just models who don’t actually use the product.

“Yes, results will vary. It depends on you. How much you use it, and how much you change your exercise in general,” said Kopko.

Before you commit to buying something, know that  it’s not going to be a quick fix.
