If you’re like the rest of us, you probably started off your career thinking success would come from expanding your scientific knowledge. You probably thought that learning the ins and outs of all the “best” fitness programs would make you a star.
And if you’re like the rest of us, you realized that while an in-depth exercise and nutrition science knowledge is important — it ain’t going to make you a star. Mainly because this job is about your clients and not you, but also because when you compare the data on the “best” fitness programs out there, the science tells us they all have one thing in common. Namely, it indicates that these programs’ successes have little to do with complex physiology, and a lot to do with a surprisingly overlooked factor — human psychology. More specifically, their results have to do with one thing… adherence.
Bookmark this scientific breakdown by Brad Dieter, and reference it next time a client asks you which diet is “best”.
