The Great Irony About The Health and Fitness Industry
With so much conflicting information that is present among your peers, in society, the media, and among health and fitness professionals, it is no wonder why consumers, like yourself, struggle so much to reach your fitness goals. The great irony is that the weight loss industry, the supplement industry, infomercials, fitness products, programs, diets, detoxes, cleanses, and many other aspects of the fitness industry are the root of the problem. While all of these industries continue to make billions upon billions of dollars every year, the majority of Americans, and others around the world, continue to gain unhealthy weight, lose muscle mass, decrease and suppress metabolism, and increase their risk for developing obesity, type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and other metabolic related disease.
Why is that? Because a large portion of these industries are focused primarily on doing everything they can to get you to pay them on a consistent basis for their products or services while only some actually focus on helping educate you on how to become truly healthy and giving you enough of the correct information to maintain your health and fitness results on a long-term, consistent, lifelong basis. A large percentage of health, fitness, wellness, and supplement companies use trends, fads, buzz words, deception, distortion, omission, and other tricks to manipulate consumers into purchasing their products. My goal philosophy, and mission, in this industry that has forgotten its purpose, is to help educate consumers, to the best of my ability, how to research, identify, analyze, compare, and assess the safety, efficacy, relativity, and long-term sustainability of various fitness products and services and to teach consumers how to identify whether or not a product or services is truly going to help them reach their goals on a long term basis.
