Fitness products that aren't worth buying

Some fitness products aren't worth buying, no matter how tempting they may look on late-night TV. This includes herbal supplements or other products that claim fitness benefits overnight or promise to take inches off without diet and exercise. Also avoid exercise products that focus on one body part, such as abs or thighs. There's no such thing as spot reducing.
