Yesterday, Dr. Kathy Dooley posted a blog called “When Your Group Class Fails You.” You can read it here, but the general idea was that while group fitness classes are fun, they’re a poor idea
In last week’s post, I asked how can we constructively address misinformation in the fitness industry? Today, I’m going to turn this post over to Debbie Downer and her pet the Grumpy Cat who is addicted to fitness, so they can educate you on the top 10 fitness myths we wish all were true.
When it comes to our quest for better health, we all know the value of diet and exercise. However, something that we overlook is the importance of self-care activities that aid our bodies in recovering from hard workouts and the stress of daily life.
We often don’t appreciate the benefits of self-care until we are already injured or in chronic pain, which can be avoided.
Question – What do former U.S. President Warren Harding and “Fitness Guru” Tracy Anderson have in common?
They are both prime examples of what happens when we assume someone is competent simply because they look the part, even if their actions and words prove otherwise.
I hope that this is common sense, but your body is not the enemy.
It’s not out to get you and it’s not trying to fail you. You may not always be happy with your body, but beating it into submission will not give you the results you want. With all of that being said, I’d like to know why the fitness industry is telling us just the opposite.
