Well, I guess you told me, haha.I know you are busy with those 12 posts of yours trying to help others, but perhaps you should open your mind a bit.
What makes you think that the Thigh Master was a deceptive product? The FTC never attacked the makers of this product. I think it did exactly what it claimed to do. It deceived no one!
Don't be a training snob. The women who purchased the Thigh Master were not exactly candidates for Squat and Deadlift records. On average they were women who were not going to do a whole lot of training. And for all you know the Thigh Master may have gotten them up off their fat butts and doing at least something. Others may have actually caught "training fevor" and joined a real gym. Guess you didn't consider that huh?
For all you know the Thigh Master may have gotten many thousands of women into shape. Most of the products that I have seen on informercials, while not nearly as good as free weights, can help if used regularly.
Are Pavels Kettle balls as good as free weights? How about those weighted clubs? In my humble opinion they are both inferior (many would disagree and I respect that), however they are far better than doing nothing.
Just as that little ab crunching machine currently advertised on infomercials is better than doing nothing. If a product can get you up and moving around as opposed to sitting around, it has some value. Besides, who is to say that I cannot come up with something far better, I only used the Thigh Master as an example of a successful infomercial product. In the end it's up to the consumer to decide which route that they want to take.
Now get back to me with a good idea so that we can make some real money.
