So congratulations are in order. You are serious this time. True, your body hasn’t gone entirely south on you yet and you are only looking to shed about 8 pounds and firm up that used to be three pack abs but your commitment is shining and bright and you want to find yourself the latest and best exercise equipment. Muddling through fitness equipment is a workout of its own. According to television and print media reports, everything out there is not only the most effective and will provide you with the fastest results, but it is also designed by some super hot shot NASA engineer and requiresâ€”get thisâ€”no effort on your part! How fabulous is that? All you have to do is spend $300 to $3000 on the newest and best and it will do the work for you! I should be committed for going swimming 6 days a week.
