Despite popular belief, you have no one to blame but yourself. Sorry.
I’ve written a fair amount of articles that place a dual responsibility on fitness professionals and the gymgoers who make the decision to get in shape. This one takes a different turn, and puts the microscope a bit more on those gymgoers in specificity. Time and again, such ones are lauded for their efforts in aiming to make a lifestyle change that can mean long-term results in favor of a healthy, more enjoyable and longer life. And it’s well deserved. Any actions intended to live healthy warrant a pat on the back.
