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.
Marketing, one of those things that can create confusion especially in our world of fitness. Here is what I think are some of the phrases we hear in fitness that may confuse consumers. We have all seen it from the words "toning" "lean" "weight loss" and the most infamous, "long lean muscles". Also "six pack abs" "bigger", "stronger", "shredded", and just get "jacked". I don't know if you noticed, but marketing words used as my examples definitely target specific genders.
So April 1st obviously passed eight days ago but I was inspired by the 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.
It's spring time and summer is quickly approaching. 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. The problem is you are confused about who to contact or who fits your needs best. 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.

Traditionally speaking, when it comes to exercise, men have dominated the lifting weights world. This occurred mainly due to men being allowed to participate in sporting activities while women were not allowed to because it was not considered “lady like” and it was illegal (Illegal for Women to Lift Weights).
