There are two types of people in the fitness industry.
Type one have dollar signs in their eyes, often at the expense of their clients wallets. These are the ones that do not have the publics best intentions at heart, instead opting for shaky science and flimsy logic to put a quick buck in their own pockets.
Tracy Anderson is one such example.
She continues to make ludicrous claims to the media that are single handedly setting the fitness industry back decades, choosing to ignore every advancement in exercise science and nutrition, in the pursuit of charging $900 a session.
Then we have the Type Two trainers. These one are the ones that lost a great deal of weight by cutting out sugar, eating 6 small meals a day, taking Shredz or going vegan/vegetarian. Whilst misguided, and possibly dangerous, still setting the fitness industry back years, they have their clients best interests at heart, yet still choose to believe things on bad or nonexistent evidence in an effort to be ahead of the fitness game.
Nobody wants to hear that they can lose weight eating 3 meals a day- that’s boring.
