“Ab Circle Pro” Busted By FTC For False Claims [Video]

If you have an Ab Circle Pro exercise machine, then you could cash in on settlement money.  Makers of the Ab Circle Pro have been ordered to pay refunds of up to $25 million in a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission for deceptive advertising.  This is the largest FTC settlement ever concerning an exercise machine.

The Ab Circle Pro is a fiberglass disk with stationary handlebars. You kneel on the disc and wiggle side-to-side. Their ad claimed that three minutes of wiggling was equivalent to doing 100 sit ups, and that you would lose ten pounds in two weeks.  This piece of equipment is not cheap either, costing as much as $250 and was marketed mostly by infomercials.  The Ab Circle Pro was touted by fitness model Jennifer Nicole Lee.  In the commercial, she made claims that the Ab Circle Pro helped her lose 80 pounds and said that “You can either do 30 minutes of abs and cardio or just three minutes a day, the choice is yours.”  The fitness claims were either false or unsupported, according to the FTC.

Sounds like once again, the basics are the best way to fitness but we do love our shortcuts don’t we?  The “get it done faster” machines seem to rarely turn out to do what they claim to do.  I say save your money on machines and get back to the basics.   If nothing else, think about how much money and space you’ll save.
