Nov 17th –  Gimmicks vs gadgets: our opinion on what’s good, bad or something you might actually need. Plus do not fall prey to marketing, how to determine what is a good health or fitness product, diet or idea. Look for holistic concepts. Shake weight, thigh master, TRX and the Zone Diet all get a mentioned on this podcast.

LISTEN NOW

What makes a fitness product good? what makes it worth investing in for your health? I believe you should look for something holistic. If a product seems to target one function or one body part it will fall considerable short when it comes to your success.

Examples of things to question:

1. A diet that is named for a specific food as if the consumption of that food alone will promote weight loss. Always look for diets that support variety and balance among food groups.

2. A piece of equipment that only works one body part. You will not get a six pack from any ab machine but rather a combination of specific eating, exercise and stress reducing habits. Getting visible abs is just as much about getting fat off as it is about building muscle. Look for equipment that integrates the body. (like TRX or Pilates Reformer)

3. A “too good to be true” service or pill that lacks nutrition or movement as a part of their plan. Think sauna suits, electric impulses, fat burning supplements or vibrating platforms.

It is not that any one of these products might not be valid as a piece of the puzzle but they are by no means able to stand alone as a solution to creating a healthy life.
