Looks like another fitness company has to pay refunds to consumers for false advertising. AB Circle Pro users were promised they could lose 10 pounds in two weeks by using the machine. Clearly, this is not a realistic goal nor is it healthy for those who used the AB Circle Pro. If you purchased an AB Circle Pro make sure you get your refund as soon as possible! Check out the article for details.
If you have a teenager in the house that consistently visits the gym, you might have noticed them using protein shakes and supplements to bulk up. A new report out this week showed that more teens are using protein powders, shakes and even steroids to gain muscle, which could be putting them at risk for body dissatisfaction and other more serious health problems. Help your teen stay informed about the dangers of muscle-enhancement supplements, and guide them toward more natural solutions for gaining strength.
