When it comes to marketing and exposure there's no doubt that social media outlets including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube are invaluable to fitness professionals. You can reach an incredibly large and diverse market, and communicate all kinds of information quickly and effectively. Obviously I utilize these resources through my occasional blogging and Facebook posting and my recent YouTube adventures. It has been suggested to me by multiple that I should open an Instagram account but I just can't bring myself to do it, and here's why.
This post was inspired by social media, the internet, and people I meet everyday just trying to find their way to eating better, weight loss, the secret elixir to the healthy life. Here's a scenario that we all have either seen, been a part of on either the receiving end or the one giving advice. It's the dreaded internet nutriton question. "How do I lose weight"? Might seem like a harmless question, but far too often people who are extremely unqualified to answer like to chime in as naturally they are just trying to help.
We tend to what everything “now”… Information, meals, shows etc.. One area you must have patience in is your health. We don’t lose our health and fitness all at once, so we must allow proper progression and physical adaptation to regain our health safely. If we do not, we risk getting physically sore, fatigued and injuries. We can get frustrated and discouraged when we do not see immediate results and then possibly give up. Over all wellness is a life long journey to be enjoyed and maintained.
Hello everyone! This should have been the first blog post but better late than never. So, what is this blog all about you ask? Seeing that I have varying interest in the world of fitness, here are some categories of what I will write about in my blog. Most of it is opinion based, so take it with a grain of salt. If I do make a strong assertion, you can ask me how I got there or show me evidence that I am probably wrong. I don't mind that at all. So here is what you can expect from my blog:- helping consumers navigate bullshit from good advice
Here is a popular question that is often asked to me and I'm sure my colleagues. Question being, do I need supplements? Well, as most things in life that is a "depends" answer. In general, if you are eating a diet that meets all your daily needs in terms of vitamins and minerals, fiber, and caloric goals, then supplements are probably not needed in my opinion. Here are some suggestions I always ask people before they dive into the mysterious world of supplements.
This post was inspired by April fools day. It reminded about how many consumers buy the non sense created in media and advertising, and the people who push products which have no logical basis but to fill their wallets/purses. Yes, I'm talking to the person who has tried any "master cleanse", "detox", some type of quck weight loss scheme that sounds logical at the moment. Lets take a look at why you are probably reading this now. Cause it didn't work and probably looking for an answer why.

You want some help in your journey to 6 pack abs, a bigger chest, a smaller waist line, a nice bubble butt, you want to feel better about your physical well being.

This is a scenario far too often that happens and as a consumer, I will try to help you navigate the mess that is out there.
