When it comes to marketing and exposure there's no doubt that social media outlets including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube are invaluable to fitness professionals. You can reach an incredibly large and diverse market, and communicate all kinds of information quickly and effectively. Obviously I utilize these resources through my occasional blogging and Facebook posting and my recent YouTube adventures. It has been suggested to me by multiple that I should open an Instagram account but I just can't bring myself to do it, and here's why.
One of my goals for 2015 was to be more active on my social media pages to help motivate and inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle. I started off with posting motivation quotes every morning, and motivational videos that I found on youtube. Youtube videos have been a huge impact on my fitness journey and will continue to be. Everyone should have some source of external motivation when they can't find any internal motivation to get them to workout.
Muscle Dysmorphia is defined as a disorder that deals with obsession over the perceived muscularity of one’s body. Simply, it is the psychology that one’s body is too thin and not muscular enough. Essentially, Muscle Dysmorphia (M.D.) is the male reverse counterpart to female Anorexia nervosa. It is categorized as a branch of obsessive compulsive disorder and is VERY COMMON in today’s gyms and society…much more than we think. I will admit that some define M.D.
