(WXYZ) - A workout machine that promised to tone your abs in three minutes a day may be too good to be true, according to the Federal Trade Commission.
The company who marketed the Ab Circle Pro has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by the FTC and refund customers up to $25 million.
The FTC says the company misled viewers in its infomercials by claiming people could lose 10 pounds in two weeks if they used the machine for just three minutes a day.
The machines were sold for $200 to $250.
You can apply for a refund on the FTC's website .
