A.I would think speed of results depends on your diet, consistency of exercise and number of reps. I've had the machine 3 days and feel a difference in my energy level and overall feeling of well being. My arms and abodminals let me know they were subjected to exercise, little sore nothing major. I started with 2 rebs of ten and build to more reps.

6. Exercise in a Bottle Yup, that’ll be the day. And the Federal Trade Commission was just as disappointed as we were. In 2000, Enforma, the company behind Exercise in a Bottle and other weight loss “miracle drugs,” was forced to hand over $10 million as consumer redress. Do not pass go, do not get America’s hopes up.

Fichera: “I’ve only seen this in a video, but it looks like a good piece of apparatus, particularly for beginners. My question is, does it provide enough resistance? There’s a time when the body reaches adaptation, and you have to increase resistance to get benefit. It doesn’t look like you can get much more with this system. Also, I’m concerned that some of the exercise motions could put too much stress on ankles, knees, and the lower back.”

Bryant: “This is an abdominal ‘training’ product that focuses on the lowering action of a sit-up. That’s fine, it’s an important aspect of exercise, but there’s nothing magical about it in terms of sculpting. The ads say the product is safe because of the cushioned back support. But given the dimensions of the device, it would seem that for individuals of average height or taller, it will be too short to provide any real support for the back.”

Fichera: “It’s a good product, but limited. You can’t do a whole-body workout on the Body Dome. It’s good for squats and crunches, but it’s not at all a full-body exercise tool. It’s one tool to be added to a series of others.”

Fichera: “This is advertised as a low-impact exercise machine, but what you get is almost no impact. It does provide very smooth range of motion. The problem is, your body performs actions that are not natural. They can potentially be dangerous because of extra stress they put on hips, knees, ankles, and lower back. Also, it’s not made for very tall people.”

Fichera: “I was advised never to exercise in the inverted position. Inversion puts a lot of pressure on the lower back. Men especially have this problem because they hold a huge portion of their weight in the upper body region. When they are inverted, the pressure shifts to the lower body, which can put pressure on the spine. For a certain percentage of the population, this could be very hazardous. There are other ways to strengthen the spinal muscles.”

Bryant: “These aren’t shoes, they’re devices you wear on your feet. The intent is to lessen impact associated with weight-bearing exercise. Some preliminary research conducted at a couple of universities has shown they may be right. But one concern might be that it alters a person’s gait, which could cause other orthopedic problems.”

Fichera: Indoor-cycling bikes “provide a very smooth form of low-impact exercise. But I don’t think they have the variability in resistance that a standard bike has. Also, in classes you are pushed way beyond your comfort zone. To get results, you have to feel some degree of discomfort or burn. I can’t see someone doing it in their own home.”

7. Toning Shoes Tried wobbling around town with the best of them? Turns out these unstable, curved soles are little more than a fashion faux pas (honestly, no real woman looks like this in Reebok Easy Tones). Recent studies reveal that “toning shoes,” including these and the original Sketcher Shape-Ups, don’t help wearers exercise more intensely, burn more calories, or improve muscle strength and tone.

Expert Opinion: According to Nicole Palacios, a certified personal trainer and fitness pro, the Thigh Master actually does target and tone the thighs as it promises. If used for the chest, it also hits the chest area, Palacios says. But you can also work the butt and thighs in a number of different ways, such as with squats, lunges, or plies. “As a trainer, I always try to incorporate exercises that work a variety of muscles simultaneously so you’re not in the gym for hours doing individual muscle groups,” she says. “If you’re using this device with the idea in mind that you will work your thighs and they’re going to get tighter/smaller by doing just one exercise, you are mistaken. Spot reduction is a myth—you cannot remove fat from one area of the body in isolation by doing exercises targeting that area alone.”

Expert Opinion: “Without trying the , I would have to say it’s a waste of money,” Palacios says. “It’s simply another gimmicky gadget that might seem like a great idea, but if you’re trying to get the body of one of the guys on their infomercial, you will have to train much differently.” Palacios adds that any one exercise is not going to train your whole body effectively enough to burn calories and build muscle. “It’s imperative to use a variety of modalities when training, as well as using functional exercises (motions you would do in real life) in order to get in amazing shape, lose weight, and build muscle.”

“First of all, most people do not consume enough water throughout the day, so why do you want something that promotes dehydration?” Gilles points out. “I think depending on a belt to help protect your back gives a fabricated sense of security, and this in turn hurts an individual from developing the physical integrity that is usually the reason for working out in the first place.” If you really want to get rid of that spare tire, Gilles suggests to clean up your diet and find an exercise plan that fits your lifestyle.

The makers of the Ab Circle Pro also claim it “burns fat in just weeks.” “You will need to make significant lifestyle changes for fat reduction, including exercise to do that,” Hahamian says.

Fichera’s mother is a prime example of staying fit with minimum equipment: “She’s 71 years old, and she uses her mini trampoline two or three times a week. When she can’t go out for long walks, she gets her trampoline out. She also plays in four bowling leagues. Plays handball twice a week. In fact, she beats women a third her age at handball.”

Expert Opinion: The Ab Belt is supposed to stimulate the nerves to contract your muscles and get them firmer and stronger. The first thing that you need to realize, personal trainer Patrick Gilles points out, is that there is no quick workout or piece of equipment for toned abs. “To even see a six pack, you will have to get your body fat below 12 percent. Thus, the best way to reveal toned abs is sticking to a healthy diet and working hard in the gym.

Your abs respond well to variety and any gizmo may work well for a while, but the same repetitive movement makes your body plateau,” Gilles says. “The only thing I would recommend this piece of equipment for is recovery. The stimulation promotes blood flow that can stretch the fascia and muscle while releasing tension.”

11. ThighMaster Suzanne Somers may be the face of 80s “As Seen on TV” fitness, but there’s a reason her ThighMaster is collecting dust in most attics across America. All that squeeze, squeeze, sqeeeezing is kind of exhausting. Skeptical? Why would you be? Its developer, Joshua Reynolds, was also the mastermind behind the (wait— why’s it always blue?) Mood Ring of the 70s and 80s.

Expert Opinion: Palacios can’t even take this Hula Chair seriously. ” looks like something from a comedy sketch—I had never seen it before. I’m not even sure what they’re trying to target, but it looks pretty silly. You would be better off standing and doing hip swings if you’re trying to work your waist like a hula dancer. That’s a great ab move, but sitting on a chair that undulates is not really going to do much for you overall. You may burn some calories because you’re constantly moving, but you’re not the mover , you are being moved.
