Infomercial Excercie Equipment - ever bought?

  1. I did about 7 years ago. I bought a "Linda Evangelista" excercise rider. Looked like a bike with no wheels and you kind of pushed down with your feet, pulled with your hands and did some kind of weird workout. Tragic. I played with it for about 3 minutes and hid it. If marketed properly (with wheels) could have been a great form of transport. Anyone every bought fitness equipment from Infomercials?
     
  2. lol NO! But I am always tempted to buy that Bowflex thing!
     
  3. I did buy a Thighmaster from a sports store after seeing it on TV. Used it for about a week and was over it! At least it was cheap!
     
  4. YES...I have the AB LOUNGER sitting in my foyer right now!! :p
    I haven't unpacked it yet..my sister is dying to come over and give it a try. :amuse:
     
  5. No, I've never purchased infomerical equipment, although I'm tempted to. They are kind of funny to watch though.
     
  6. I am embarrassed to say that I bought Bun n Thigh scupltor, thigh master, Abtronic etc. They are just collecting dust at home. I am still tempted sometimes to buy more but now that there is a DH who stops me from doing stupid things like this.
     
  7. lool i bought the GAZELLE..the machine that tony little advertised for...i dont know why i did it...i always thought he had issues and now after buying the machine...im SURE he does!
     
  8. And Suzanne (the mogul) Somers get richer and richer - I buy her cocktail mixers (no refined sugar) so I am helping as well.
     
  9. I think my mom did a long time ago when I was a kid. My brother and me didnt even know the thing was exercise equipment it looked so funky.
     
  10. Not from infomercials, but I have bought a lot of exercise equiptment. I bought a stairmaster from QVC (years and years ago), and I did use that quite a bit at first, but then it became a coat rack.:shame: Then I bought an exercise bike, and that was ok, but I didn't like it enough to keep using it. So I sold it. After that, I bought a treadmill, that I LOVE, and use about 4-5 times a week. It's been the most effective workout so far. I also have a freeweight bench set, and that's great,too.
     
  11. My mom bought one of those, but we watched the video that came with it first. I think it was a half hour or 45 minutes. It was :weird:! It showed him being weird and in the middle you see parents and their kids playing with water guns. lol :nuts: My mom used it for about a month before it started making weird noises. Like it was going to break.
     
  12. I bought some abflex machine that I saw on an infomercial. It worked in reducing my waist size, but it also gave me horrible back pain. Anyways, I'm sure that it's found a better life in the storage unit now.

    I am tempted to buy the bowflex though. Atleast it makes more sense to me.
     
  13. I bought the Ablounger too. I haven't used it at all. :shame:
     
  14. Yes, the exact same thing happened. Except I think the sounds were because it needed to be oiled.
     
  15. my brother bought one of those abroller things and it really works! it even has the counter thing so you know how many you do
