Recently I got a vague call from a woman in North Carolina. I returned her call and never heard back. I doubted that she was genuinely interested in my services. I get many calls like these in my line of work, where people are looking for a hard sell and quick fixes, trainers and clients included. Upon further investigation, I discovered that she endorses and sells supplements and also calls herself a trainer (yikes). I cringed at the thought of her actions, when it clearly is out of the scope of our practice and unethical to sell supplements.
As far as I am concerned, there are no shortcuts to health and fitness. One must be ready, willing and able to do the consistent “work” of exercising and eating healthy. It is the only way.
Consumer beware of the so called trainer who will sell you supplements. These kinds of trainers give professionals like myself, a stereotypical and negative image and are dangerous to your health!
