My pet peeve is unrealistic standards. Whether it’s “The Biggest Loser” or a fitness magazine cover, everyone seems to be bombarding us with a picture of what fitness “should” look like, or how little time is needed (6 months!) to make a drastic body change. What a crock! Fitness should emphasize the personal improvements that last a lifetime, not just the 20-somethings with the rock-hard bodies.
Great question. Mine is pretty much that a lot of our industry concentrates too much on appearance over Health and function. I have seen trainers push clients to starve themselves and leave their clients with no energy. Not to mention that cardiovascular training is taken out of the equation also.
