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 think it hurts our industry, as long as we keep educating our clients and/or any potential future clients that there is a lot more going on in the show that we don’t see. It’s a long process and these people are operating in a very controlled environment where they get to workout many hours a day, they have their own chief and they are being monitored 24/7 by a dietitian and medical staff. This is very hard to duplicate in the real world where most of us live and work.
