What's up, Doc? Do you even lift?

If you want me to be honest, I’ll say this:  As far as we’ve come where health and fitness are concerned, we’ll still be in a place of relative darkness until we all get on the same page as a community.

Until then, the Tracy Anderson Method and cash-grab systems like it will still be among the top trending workout systems on the internet.

And you need to get your head out of the clouds.

My industry sorely lacks a dose of reality when it comes to promises it claims it can keep concerning a prospective client’s results. It doesn’t help the situation when many commercialized fitness experts make resolve to “reshape your body in 6 weeks” while oiled and nearly naked on screen.

When did we all go soft?

I’ve written a lot on the dangers of pushing yourself beyond a threshold, both physically and psychologically as a lifter. Especially in the case of the latter, it’s a toll that few people even know they’ve paid, since it’s all shrouded under the concept of good health.

And my top movies of the year.

This is my 5th year writing a blog article like this, and despite the amount of cliché there is in doing it, I still find good reason to.  People who lambaste other coaches for doing this may not realize that it’s a good way to centralize key reminders, help inform the masses, and say a few thank you’s,  all at the same time.

And get over the irony of the fact that you probably found this article on Facebook.

For the adults who still have a modicum of original thought left, an objective look back over the last 15 or so years may confirm that social media in its many forms has done just as much to divide society as it has to unify it.

'Cause the internet could use a kick in the face.

It can be pretty impressive when you take a step back and contemplate just how far Western society has come where technological advances are concerned. Access to knowledge, networking, and countless other things are at our fingertips.
