Denise Austin Fit Forever

Recommended Posts

You can't "spot reduce." You don't control where your body loses or gains fat.

 

But I guess that doesn't keep so-called fitness "experts" like Denise Austin from making that kind of claim in their marketing materials. As far as I know you can still say pretty much anything you want when trying to sell fitness stuff.

 

I would be turned off by such claims and would not be interested in buying the workout or any other workout by that instructor.

OK - I haven't seen her ad or pop-up, but I went to her website. I didn't see anything there about spot reducing. What I saw was that she has exercises that target different areas of the body. While you can't spot reduce, you can choose which muscles to tone. Maybe that's what it's referring to.

 

Just giving a great fitness professional the benefit of a doubt! :salut

Hey Heidi! Maybe I misunderstood the ad! I don't want to say something bad about a program if I don't know what I 'm talking about! yikes!!!

 

Here is the part that made me think "spot reduce" (I don't think I saw this on the website, but it was on the pop up)

She's also my least favorite instructor - I have a few of her workouts and I think the music is added AFTER their taping because they always seem to be off-beat. Plus her chattering - annoys me more than Leslie's!
