THE INTERNET KILLED THE REAL PERSONAL TRAINERS
If you're a child of the 80's
an old human being such as myself; you remember that great song MTV ran on a daily "VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR" OF COURSE YOU DO. Sadly I'm quickly reminded on a daily as I scroll on my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram news feed that times have changed due to instant gratification, visual lies and false products that would make the real professionals of ANY CAREER, spin like the Exorcist.
FITNESS no longer means Progression Hard work
Patience Hitting Failure then to succeed again
THAT was the 80's, same time that song was released....and a bit of the 90s.
Today 2016 in the digital society, FITNESS is BOOBS, FAKE BOOBS, BIG ASS, FAKE ASS, WAIST TRAINERS, MORE ASS, MORE BOOBS, HORRENDOUS SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS...MODELED FROM WOMEN WITH FAKE BOOBS AND MEN WHO LOOK LIKE MUTANTS, PHOTOSHOPPED PHYSIQUES, FAKE CUT AND PASTE ONLINE TRAINING, CUT AND PASTE ONLINE NUTRITION, ABS ABS ABS ABS ABS......AND MORE ABS
ANYONE, with no skills, background or education on how to TRAIN the body and others, can now all of a sudden call themselves a PERSONAL TRAINER on social media with the famous three words that I LOATHE: "ASK ME HOW" Sadly we live in a society where anyone with a pretty face, body can tell us ANYTHING and we will believe it. What makes matters worst is these same type of people will hit me up for advice saying "I want to gain a 6 pack" or "I want a nice big ass" in 2 WEEKS because I'm going to South Beach and since instagram chic IMSOFLYIMRICH posted that she lost 20lbs by wearing a stupid waist trainer and drinking nothing but some green shit all day, then I need to do the same.
THE INTERNET HAS KILLED THE PERSONAL TRAINER.
Now I, the professional, has become the bad guy to inform this person that Miss INSTAWHORE PAID for her body with surgery, did tons of ASS shots on her page to get some "LIKES" and some crappy supplement that was probably made in some guys basement in BUMFUCKVILLE, gave her free samples to sponsor so her LIKES can grow, and the supplement LIKES can blossum, all the while she didn't do a damn thing. BUT YOU BELIEVE IT without doing the one key factor in life: RESEARCH.
You CANNOT lose 20lbs healthy in 2 weeks thus shows like THE BIGGEST LOSER is a lie-its on Tel-LIE-vision. We have to get out of this notion of FAST, QUICK, EASY, NOW and embrace HARD WORK, PATIENCE, DEDICATION AND JOURNEY. Don't be fooled by the SQUAT ALL DAY hashtags, 30 day SQUAT CHALLENGE and BUTT BLASTER gimmicks (by the way 20 years ago a BIG ASS was considered disgusting and only a BLACK thing; now that Kim K made it famous, EVERYONE WANTS IT), Your ass comes from your GENES. Can you sculpt it? Sure but it wont look like Kim K's.
EVERYONE IS BUILT DIFFERENTLY. YOU CAN BE INSPIRED BY ONE
BUT YOU CANT DUPLICATE THE OTHER
Unless you go under the knife.
You can always spot the real from the fake because the fake ones ALWAYS post 95% of ass workouts as if that's the means to an end. DO YOUR RESEARCH. Not everyone who calls themselves a trainer are trainers. They don't spend nights going over programs for clients to prep for the next day, wake up at the crack of dawn to head to a gym to train different personalities, sometimes get underpaid doing so. They do not experience waiting for a client when the person no shows because he/she has a hangover and you could've used that extra hour of sleep. By no means these fake social media ASK ME HOW folks don't know what its like working for one of these "corporate gyms" that begs for all your time to make THEM money and lie to you saying "This is YOUR business" yet slave you at the same time.
No. Just a click away, they can send you the same cheesy cut and paste program they gave to 10 other people while HE/SHE too busy making up another dumb exercise creation that serves no function or purpose, to place on instagram.
Thats not to say ALL who have great bodies are not real personal trainers online because they are. YOU have to research, chew the meat and spit out the bones. I'm inspired a lot. I have my online favorites that I watch on a daily and take notes before a workout. You always want to learn to grow. Sadly we are a dying breed thanks to the superficial but we are out here. And we're not going anywhere.
You just have to FIND US.
when in doubt. YOUTUBE
