Before and After--remember this before you buy
This video has gone viral, and I think it's great. Some programs out there work well, but they take a lot of time and you're not going to get the ripped abs that the models in their ads have.
There's nothing wrong with buying a workout video or a product if you a) recognize that the ads are trying to get you to buy the product, so at the very least exaggerating things and b) have a realistic goal in mind. Oh, and c) you can afford it.
This is good to keep in mind even if you use a product and swear by it--the next time you want to beat yourself up for not having the results the ads show, there is probably a reason for it that has little to do with your commitment, skill level, or willpower.
