Since it’s been a commonly known fact that both males and females find six pack abs sexy and flattering, both men and women seem to be willing to do just about anything to obtain them! You’ll see people doing set after set of boring and repetitive ab exercises in the gym, like sit ups. You’ll see people paying up to seven thousand dollars and enduring a painful (and sometimes lengthy) recovery to get abdominal etching, which is a plastic surgery procedure that’s supposed to enhance the appearance of abs. So it comes as no surprise, sadly, that people also get suckered in to misleading and ineffective exercise machines.
Exercise machines that target the ab muscles can be a seemingly attractive option for many. After all, people get bored of doing the same few abdominal exercises, and they start to desire a change of pace, or even a shortcut towards reaching their goals. Then, they see an infomercial with paid models who look great, performing seemingly easy exercises that are supposed to give you the look you want. As you can see, it’s easy to be swayed into buying these machines, because of all this.
This would be fine and dandy if these machines really did what they claim to do. Unfortunately, they rarely, if ever, do accomplish these claims. Through the years, abdominal exercise machines have come in all shapes, sizes and forms, and usually with a high price tag, to boot. They’ve filled the living rooms, and shortly thereafter, the closets of those who tried to use them and gave up because they were uncomfortable, didn’t work right, or just didn’t give the desired results.
The sad thing is, the companies that make these products are often just out for a quick buck. They know that we all would love to look our best and feel great about ourselves, and they greedily use that against us to profit off of our eagerness! These marketing scams and ineffective products have littered the market, taking advantage of those that just want to better themselves! The sad thing is that not only do these products often not produce results, but that it’s very possible to achieve much better results without shelling out all that money!
