7 Answers | Asked by Cedric Smith on Feb 03, 2014

Answered by LaRue Cook on Feb 03, 2014

I think that if used 'properly' they can be a good tool. In my opinion, whatever tool speaks to a particular person and gets them motivated to engage in HEALTHY exercise is potentially useful.

Answered by LaRue Cook on Jan 29, 2014

Hi Delmar. You sound like a person wanting to 'do the right thing.' In this instance, the 'right thing' is not to try to train under the table.
