I recently bought Berardi’s Precision Nutrition.
Before I purchased it, I read their description of the product, which states:
“Covers everything you need to know about nutrition. Precision Nutrition contains everything you need to get the body you want.”
“1 year membership to online library of articles, e-books and software. Access our complete Exercise Video Database and thousands of pages covering every conceivable fitness and nutrition topic in the Member Zone.”
When I purchased it, the first thing I was hit with was an additional $39.99 to get volume 2 of the cookbook. Fine, that was up front, and there was a discount, so I ordered that and paid extra for it.
Then, after joining, they hit me up for another $59.00 per year to use the “Results Tracker.” They claim that is not considered part of the “online library of articles, e-books and software” for which I bought a “1 year membership.” It raises an interesting question of what it is, or as Clinton would say, what “is” is.
The concept of it not being “software” is especially interesting considering their description of it on their website, which states:
“The Results Tracker is a web-based program that allows you to record, track and graph your results ? all built right in to your precisionnutrition.com account.”
Apparently they have created a “web-based program” that is not “software.” Yet, they even refer to it as software on their website. Also remember it is not an “article.”
They also state: “Introducing the Results Tracker: Online body composition recording, tracking and graphing, built into your Precision Nutrition account.”
Well, apparently it is not built into the account after all, but has to be added to the account. Also, they do not consider it to be included in their description of “everything you need to know about nutrition” or “everything you need to get the body you want.”
The concept of being charged additional money for software that by all descriptions should have been included in the 1 year account, is highly disturbing, dishonest and deceptive.
