Fitness Experts

There Is Too Much Fake Training Out There...

Fake training. I see it all around me. Wannabe trainers/bodybuilders who are just mailing it in. Their training sessions have no motivation, intent or direction. The training environment provided by these so called expert trainers is uninspiring and reeks of mediocrity to the point of being pathetic. I've seen more intensity in a hair salon.

I see trainers who just sit there being professional rep counters, providing their clients who are paying them a lot of money, with useless information throughout a training program that is mostly wasted movement. Sadly, the average client doesn't really know this.

Listen, just because you lift weights, and do cardio doesn't actually mean you're getting the results you deserve. I highly recommend when enlisting the services of a trainer, make sure it's real, not fake training. Look out for a blog with the right questions to ask your potential trainer, and the right answers to look for.

Until next time.

Fake Expert!

I gotta get this off my chest before I explode. A very good friend of mine who was a big time name in the bodybuilding industry once told me, if you really want to know how to put on muscle, or get ripped to shreds, ask a world level competitive bodybuilder. Their body's are an ongoing laboratory experiment, and they know stuff about nutrition and training that no one else does, including doctors and self proclaimed trainers, which brings me to my beef.

It's been nearly twenty years since I've competed at the world level, however I've remained in the bodybuilding and fitness industry helping individuals get in the best shape of their lives. Sadly the information in the industry has not progressed, and social media has made this problem worse.

Most of these self proclaimed wanna be trainers/ fitness models/ life coaches, whateverthe hell they end up calling themselves are spewing old, even dangerous information about training and nutrition. You have trainers on Facebook and Instagram with all of their selfie photos who have never been on a competitive stage worth talking about, and yet they consider themselves experts, telling people how to eat and train. We'll, they're not, and its really obvious based on their "so called cutting edge" information. I will however say that these fake trainers/ experts have done a fine job of repackaging old information to make it look like something new. Unfortunately the average consumer doesn't know the difference, which simply means they lose...

Stay tuned for more truth talk on my next blog.
