10 Common Misconceptions About Fitness

Posted: February 03, 2015

Obviously, we don’t always do the right things regarding our diet and exercise. All you have to do is look around. Maybe even just look in the mirror.

Some people are trying to do the right thing, but they’re misinformed. But sometimes they’re just deceiving themselves, or making excuses.

I often feel like my job is to help them have a Dr. Phil moment and ask them how it’s working for them. After all, it’s the truth that sets us free.

We usually hear this when offered with some sarcasm, but I think it’s most powerful when delivered as a serious question. The goal is to get the person to stop and think for a moment.
