Fitness Facilities, Personal Strainers, or….. The Health Club Scam!
How many friends do you have that have joined the “so called Health Clubs?”
When people go to a health club they are “usually and already” self conscious and insecure about their self image!
When people go to a “health club” they are seeking several things and the first big “HELP” they are looking for is “CHANGE” in appearance, then health, along with hope of “learning” to rid themselves of what “got them there!”
Forty plus years ago I was that same person. So I started looking for a program or information that would first make me “healthy” and get me “in shape.”
Notice these words, shape, fit, lean, muscled, toned, all describe a “visual!”
Image is the single biggest motivator, followed by healthy or “vital.” (vitality)
People are usually more vain than concerned about health. However they should be after health first, as health would be lean, vital, and fit.
Priorities, are what is not in order.
Health clubs are usually large concerns that “sell memberships” not “healthy or changes.”
In 1986 I was in the first article written about a new thing in “health clubs.” Personal Training” was the new buzz word that would become a new “craze.” So it was “a NEW CRAZE” because the big industry stepped in and made “certifications” for all who wanted to become a trainer. A trainer was a supposed person who would know how, AND WHAT TO DO!
Sad to say, it was just “another” WORD with no real difference in performance to the customer, except to hire a overpriced, under qualified “babysitter!” But they are “certified.”
Today twenty plus years later they are nothing more than a “money pit.”
What happened is that “ACTUAL RECEIVED VALUE” is still nonexistent! No actual set scheduled testing, verified, measured, or verified results are ever pursued!
What is even sadder and way more rediculous is that the trainers WERE NEVER TAUGHT HOW TO GET OR GUARANTEE RESULTS!
The certifications are another money scam!
The beginning of the problem starts with EMOTIONAL DECISIONS!
Yes you know how, don’t even go there with a defense! What do I mean?
Follow along and be open to the next few statements.
Most all have a friend who says, “oh,this is an AWESOME CLUB!”
Or they say, “I really LIKE MY TRAINER!” Is it a scam or are they actually getting results on a continuous basis, WATCH, SEE?
Or they might say,” my trainer WORKS ME OUT, AND HE REALLY PUSH’S ME!”
These are all EMOTIONAL statements not actual RESULTS, MEASURED, VERIFIED, or PROOF of any real benefits! A scam is going on!
So emotions like, I think or I feel or I believe have nothing to do WITH PROOF that the trainer or the club ACTUALLY DELIVERED true healthful benefits, but THEY GOT YOUR MONEY!
Who is STUPID here???
Fast, short term, visible external results, can leave a person with long term internal, debilitating harmful results! A scam most often!
This is your health, and life forces we are talking about!
So to know for sure, get the actual facts to be guaranteed, have the “KNOW HOW” for a life time?
