I feel shows like this have unrealistic results compared to most individuals. This then can make clients expect similar, yet unrealistic results. Still shows like this tend to motivate people and get them interested in losing weight/fat. Do shows like this help or hurt our industry? Your thoughts?
I don’t watch these shows, but i’d say they create unrealistic and unhealthy goals. One of our jobs as trainers, is to help people create realistic and healthy goals, so I think these shows are VERY counter productive to our field, as most overweight people are impatient about dropping the weight and aren’t concerned with how healthy their approach is.
