I’ve worked in the fitness industry a long time, I’ve clocked over 15 years experience now & over the last few years I’ve seen a HUGE shift in the state of things…..
The internet, facebook, twitter, & instagram are all FULL of gyms & personal trainers all promising you the answers to your goals….
The fitness industry is MASSIVE now, with more gyms, more trainers, more internet gurus, more nutrionist’s, more ‘diet’ plans, more of everything…however despite all of this, the industry is FAILING…….
People in this country are sicker than ever before, obesity rates are higher than ever, & the total amount of the UK population who are a members of a gym clocks in at only 12%……
My advice to you is to NOT do what the majority are doing, because the majority are WRONG…
From my experience, here is my advice on what I think you should avoid:
>Any program that gets you ‘shredded or blitzed’ in a definite amount of time, but leaves you going STRAIGHT back to old ways & habits….often feeling even worse about yourself.
>Ladies, avoid ANY program/routine that uses the word ‘skinny’ in a complimentary manner.
>Any program/routine where you are NOT encouraged/motivated to change ANY part of your eating patterns/habits, unless of course your habits are already perfect?
>Any program that SOLELY focuses on total body weight ONLY. This is a factor but is not the ONLY factor when getting in shape, composition is the key.
>A system that replaces food with liquid (shakes)…. Post workout shakes are an exception for some people in a supplementary manner, but replacing actual meals with shakes does NOTHING to change your relationship with food.
>Unless you are actually stepping on a competitive bodybuilding stage, the need to eat like you are isn’t necessary, so any program that encourages you to live solely off chicken & broccoli multiple times EVERY DAY should BE avoided……
>ANYTHING that claims the answer is in a PILL!!
>Any trainer that CONTINUALLY boasts about their clients being sick through training!
I could honestly rant all day about this; it’s very close to my heart.
I’m passionate about this because I’ve seen awesome people with great intentions make bad decisions & bad choices due to false hope.
This leaves them feeling even more fed up, angry, and depressed……….
…………please don’t be one of these people,
……….take the time to research what is right for YOU…
YOU are individual and your routine/program should reflect YOUR needs…
You need a realistic program that YOU can stick to…
It’s confusing; I get it, that’s why I am here to help you………
You are not supposed to know the answers; you just need to ask the right questions to the right people…..
That’s all for today, until the next time,
Tristan ‘ranting’ Buttle.
P.S – nothing today, I’ve ranted enough!
