21 Nonsensical Fitness Contradictions — Nick Tumminello
As fit pros, we start off our careers clueless. We have no idea what information to believe, and what to disregard as pseudoscience.
Somewhere along the line, you start to make sense of all the conflicting fitness data, and form your beliefs. Over time, as you build our career upon these beliefs, they become a part of your identity. An attack on calories in / calories out becomes an attack on you, personally.
Then one day, a client asks a simple question about your instructions. She points out that two bits you’ve said are direct contradictions. Then… you realize she’s right.
That moment sucks. We hate reconstructing our beliefs. But it’s also a moment for growth.
This article will give you that feeling x 21. Don’t read unless you’re ready — with an open mind.
