360fit Blog – You’ve Been Lied To

I’ve got some bad news for you. I know you have been told many times there’s a magic pill, or workout, for fitness. There isn’t. You’ve been sold a lie.

Every supplement company in the world (and many fitness companies who know better) have pitched out the “perfect” “easy” “simple” way to get fit. They show amazing before and after pictures. They claim just pay them and you can do this too.

It kills me to see the field I love so much, be perverted by companies who prey on people’s goals, and try to sell them garbage and junk. I’m sure I could make a hell of a lot more money if I did that, but I believe in the truth, and doing what is right for clients.

Many years ago I did a workout and diet program in my first year of university at Acadia. It promised to make me look like a bodybuilder, and had me sold.

It was one of the stupidest things I’ve ever tried. It didn’t work and was a waste of time and money. I learned my lesson right then!

Everyone from some Crossfits, to the 21 Day Fix, to Beachbody and Isagentixs will promise to change your life. They offer workouts that only they can do. They offer pills and supplements you can get no other place.

They are completely full of crap.

I’ve been a trainer for 22 years. If there were quick fixes, I would have come across them by now. Hell if there was one, I would have invented it and gotten super rich!

There is only one way to get fit; grind.

When I say grind I mean workout at least four to five times a week, week in week out. No skipping workouts because you are tired. No eating junk food because today is Monday, and you feel you are owed. It means giving up things to have the fitness level you want.

The good news is when you work at it; you can completely change your body and life! Yes it will be hard, and yes you will give up some things. But like the old saying goes, “Nothing tastes as good as fit feels!” That’s the truth!

At 360fit our mandate is to give you honest info, and the best workouts you’ve had. We can help you reach any goal you set. We won’t lie to you about it, and we won’t sell you quick fixes. We are in it for the long haul.
