Evaluating Three Fitness Products
It is extremely important to analyze the products that are aimed at strengthening human health and shaping human bodies. As people should be aware of the genuine effect of different exercise devices, articles of health products, and food supplements, it is necessary to asses those products in accordance with certain criteria. In this respect, the abovementioned products can be considered more or less effective or those having negative effect on human health after a thorough examination. Thus, the products designed for improvement of health and physical condition should be effective and harmless for the category of people that is the target audience of this product. Exercise device
1. The exercise device requires the effort consistent with the FIT formula. This device is designed to make people’s abs flat; at least, the advertisements claim this to be true. 2. The exercise device is safe when used carefully and the exercises done using this device are effective for the abs only. Besides, some people can believe that the result of flat abs can be reached without certain efforts in the shortest possible time. I did not think that the results would come easily and quickly; so, I think that this device was rather effective and safe. 3. Actually, there are claims that the device uses the exercise that is effortless since the advertisement makes people believe that they can reach results without efforts. 4.

So, this was an effective method at a reasonable price. 8. Actually, I had gotten it from a person I know. As he did not need it anymore, I could use it for free. 9. I do not think that the cost of the product is justified with potential benefits because the expected benefits do not come unless a person uses this device for training at the beginning and then applies more comprehensive strategies to physical training. 10. The device is really easy to store as it is light and does not require much place. The device is called Ab Roller and it looks like a hula hoop bent in the middle so that its sides form a kind of an arch.
The article under consideration is the following: Strong, William B. et al. “Evidence Based Physical Activity for School-Age Youth.” The Journal of Pediatrics 146 (2005):732-737. 1. The credentials of the author seem to be sound.
