I use social media more or less every day, engaging with like-minded people, and learning new things (and watching funny dog videos). As much as possible, I try to surround myself with positive people. Itโ€™s an approach which many follow, and youโ€™re never far from a motivational quote image.


However, something which seems to be on the rise is the number of health and fitness industry professionals who are happy to bitch, moan, and pick fights with one another. Mostly the arguments seem to be simply because one doesn’t agree with an approach or content someone else is putting out there. Donโ€™t get me wrong, debate is good, but getting personal isn’t.

Is there any benefit in putting out personal, negative, or insulting content?

Thereโ€™s also been a few blazing rows I’ve seen about people claiming a certain trainer doesn’t have the accreditations that they say they do. Of course morally itโ€™s not right for someone to lie about their accreditations and qualifications, but if they can live with themselves and take money from hard-working people, then thereโ€™s not a lot you can do with people like that.


I would argue that as a trainer / fitness professional, if you’ve got the time to find flaws in other people and spend time digging into their background, youโ€™re probably not focusing enough on your own business. Why worry about what someone else is doing? If youโ€™re losing clients to them or not generating enough business yourself, then slating them on social media isn’t exactly the way to win clients. If anything, youโ€™re going to deter potential clients as youโ€™re coming across like a bit of dick.


All of this wouldn’t matter if there was a 100% proven formula to add muscle, burn fat, and improve all round health that worked for absolutely everybody. If that was the case, we’d all be in great shape and Iโ€™d have no problem if arguments started when someone deviated from it.

The thing is, this magic formula doesn’t exist.

Different approaches work for different people.

Different diets work for different people.

Different supplements work for different people.

Debate is good.


Can't we all just eat peanut butter and get along-
