Exercise Infomercial Malibu Pilates Please Save Your Money

2009, It’s a New Year, Time for Exercise Equipment Infomercials!

Have you noticed that the airways are filling up with commercial after commercial selling gimmicky exercise equipment? Hahaha.. was my reaction when I first saw the infomercial for Malibu Pilates.

Malibu Pilates using the power of a single spring and some plastic handles to transform the flabby into cover worthy fitness models. Have you ever been into the As Seem on TV stores in the mall and realized that 95% off of all ASOTV products are crap? ASOTV products are sold on TV for a reason, nobody would buy them if they could actually see them up close. Malibu Pilates is no exception.

The Malibu Pilates reminds me about what’s wrong with As Seen on TV products. Even the name sounds like a marketing ploy. The only reason people lose weight with this type of flimsy equipment, is the accompanying weight lose plan. The dirty little secret in the exercise direct response world is they can make those extraordinary claims because the exercise equipment is always “part of a system.” The “system” includes a diet book that you have to follow. Losing weight with pieces of equipment like Malibu Pilates or any ASOTV equipment usually has more to do with the diet plan than the machinery. You could probably lose weight by blowing up balloons if it came with a diet booklet and sold as part of a system.

If you want to go with a good weight lose ASOTV system that I’ve even used I’d recommend Beach Body’s P90X with Tony Horton. Save your money, don’t buy gimmicky machines like the Malibu Pilates.
