Nowadays there has been so much hype for having that 6 pack abs. We have to thank the media for its contribution for the rising popularity of the ideal male body figure. Who could ever forget Brat Pitts abs in his movies like Troy and The Legend of The Fall. That washboard abs which most men envy and wish they could have.
Due to the rising popularity of the 6 pack abs, most gym clinics and online work out companies highlight washboard abs as a way to showcase their product. Companies which are into health, diet and exercise advertise their product with models with well sculpted body figure with tremendous abdominal muscles. The results were astounding. There were a lot of subscriptions online. Books were also sold like hotcakes. Other companies use visual aids to have an edge. Selling CD’s with work out videos which shows a step by step instruction on how to bulge those abdominal muscles.
The rise of company sales was expected because in reality men really want to be admired. This is one of the things companies promise in their advertisements. That if you enroll in our program people will definitely notice you. That it is not only just having a good physique but it is also a confidence booster. The increase in consumer purchases was a result of good marketing strategy. Advertisements that promise quick results in a matter of days and even minutes are effective method to catch the possible consumers’ attention. Making instructions easily understandable by using videos also helped.
Other detractors however argue that some company ads were making false promises in order to entice consumers to buy their products. Companies making assurances that they could not actually deliver. The skeptics would even suggest that companies use deceit in order to sell their products. However, I see nothing wrong in companies selling dreams, using people’s desires and hopes as a tool to sell their products. There is in fact a shed of truth on what they say in their advertisements. Having a body that is ripped of muscles really does boost confidence. It will also help you be noticed by women. Company ads just make use of is already a fact. That there is a fact that people can feel good if they have a healthy and well shaped body. That it can help you be noticed and it can give you an edge in some sort of way.
Companies just exploring the possibilities of what people will feel after using their products and services. They just make use of what is already there, the consumers’ desires, hopes and dreams. They use advertisement just to highlight those things. I see no deceit but a mere reminder of the possible outcome. I am definitely sure that most of us want to be fit and healthy.
I do want to feel good and one way would definitely be having a washboard abs just like Brad Pitt. It is definitely nice to be able to take off your shirt when you are in a beach or swimming in the pool. How about you?
