In a Reddit thread, personal trainers shared the things they wanted to do. They knew about the appropriateness and demolition of popular myths about losing weight
First and foremost were some key facts about the fitness industry itself and the people who spread misinformation or exploited people's lack of knowledge. "The majority of personal trainers do not have enough physiological, anatomical or nutritional knowledge to actually be personal trainers "The majority of the YouTube / Instagram fitness gurus are also largely shod." The commentator is not necessarily wrong – but there are some high-profile experts who have used social media to gain their knowledge and expand their practice. Check out our list of top trainers online to see what profile meets the hype.
"The industry focuses on fat loss and body image," said another. "In my gym, there is a black board with about 15-20 personal trainer details. Only one mentioned no weight loss." Another complained that the fitness industry is more about "who has the best Instagram profile" than anything else. Someone else pointed out that "the majority of fit people you aspire to take performance enhancing medications." And when you do that, you have to know your goals and be realistic. "If you expect to be out of sport for 20 years and complete 10 personal training sessions with pizza, beer and fast food every day, we have a long way to go and most of the effort is up to you." "said a coach." There are no quick fixes. Make changes and do them consistently. Long time. Not just a few days. "
" 70% of your target body starts in the kitchen, "said another with a lot of commentary. Back it up and agree that what you eat is as important as exercise. Say: "Nutrition is the most important thing" and "Exercise does not compensate for the food like shit."
After all, people need to learn that this is not the case to control which body part you get rid of fat, "said another comment. "Like all these exercises that say, do this exercise and lose your belly fat." That does not work. You can not control where you lose fat. Only where you build muscle. "
