Bad Advice 102

Posted: September 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

Like always start with the clip!



Sure, it is easy to say that their is bad advice out there, but for my MANY readers, how do we avoid it – Especially when it comes to fitness.

Well I worked on 3 simple rules to follow in the fitness industry.

1. What is this persons experience in the industry. 

Personally, I do not believe in pieces of paper that tell me I’m qualified. Yes, I have my personal training certification from a great program, but that was for my clients assurance. Just because someone can pass a test does not mean they have ANY right to be teaching a topic.


2. Is their information up to date?

One of my favorite stories is how they used to give football players salt pills, instead of water, for football practice. Now we would never do this for obvious reasons, but only the most up to date information is relevant.


3. Most importantly in the fitness industry, WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE?

Their is some vanity behind it, but if you can not look the part you have no right to teach the subject. End of Story.



Here are the people I get some of MY information from because they look the part!! And have experience!!!

Guy is 40 almost 50 years old and looks like that. HIS OPINION MATTERS!
