I know a 5000 word article is a little long for many!
So I have recorded this audio version as a podcast for anyone who prefers alternate ways of consuming content.
This is the most important thing I have ever written.
I do not say this from a place of ego. There is far better
writing out there in the world.
But this message is a culmination of everything I have learned and experienced over the last 14 years as an active participant and contributor to the health and fitness industry.
If you are a personal trainer, fitness coach, online coach, group exercise instructor, health researcher, or health professional such as a doctor, physiotherapist, massage therapist, or chiropractor, it is IMPERATIVE that you read this.
If you know anyone who I just mentioned above, please help me to get this message to them.
For those who have struggled with their health and fitness, I believe that this message is just as important. If you have experienced failure with any of the fitness programs and diets you have embarked on over the years you need to hear this message. Before you join a gym, begin a new program, or seek out other avenues to make changes to your health, you need to understand this message.
If you know anyone who lets their life be affected by their weight, what they look like, or how other perceive their level of fitness, please help me get this message to them.
What we call ‘fitness’ is broken. It is controlled by and designed for a narcissistic minority group of people who are consistently destroying our ability to help people achieve better health.
It is possible to change it. To fix it. To make it better. To make it more effective. But to do that we must first understand what is wrong.
This is my manifesto. This is what will guide the next chapter of my involvement in the health and fitness industry. I will continue to fight to create the change that is so desperately needed.
