-Don’t Believe Everything You Hear!-

This image should be posted on 80% of the fitness websites you come across!

Just when I thought people couldn’t stoop ANY lower in my profession, I came across this:

Ain’t this classy?! For $5, this dude will create an amazing testimonial for your fitness business! Heck, he doesn’t even know you! Jump on this, fitness professionals! ;D Scary to think that many people probably already have.

This is further proof that you should NEVER believe everything you see or hear from fitness “professionals.” There are many scam artists out there!

Frankly, the thought of plastering my pages with tons of video testimonials from clients is…well…cheesy. It’s the norm right now, though.

Still, I don’t go along with lots of the norms. 🙂

If you are a person seeking to hire a trainer or join a boot camp program, and you see tons of video testimonials on a trainer’s website that has a miles-long sales pitch page…be warned. Many of the videos could be fake. This guy is proof!

  1. For $5, you know it can’t be quality. Heck, I know sandwiches that cost more than 5 bucks!

  2. This is exactly what we as Fitness Professionals do not need! Yet another reason for people to give up on their personal fitness goals as they do not know who to trust.
    Morality has been replaced with a hunger for money.
    So sad.

    • It’s ridiculous, huh?! I feel like the majority of people in our industry are posers…that sounds so pessimistic, but I can’t help but feel that way when there is crap like this out there and people are obviously taking advantage of it!
