I’m just tired.  I have simply had it.  I’ve had it with watching the same old people do the same old things all the time.  I’m tired of the commercials on the TV showing people riding ellipticals and walking on treadmills.  I’m sick of the same old “experts” talking about the same old things all the time.  The same ways to lose weight and manage body composition.  My goodness, people, try something new.  Clearly the old ways of doing things aren’t working as well as we’d like (90 million overweight/obese can’t be wrong).  They tell people to eat whole grains and veggies, and people are getting fatter and fatter (you all know my feelings on the pyramid).  Not that veggies are bad, but grains are a tough one to swallow (pardon the pun).  They tell people cardio, cardio, cardio, and what do we have?  A slew of repetitive stress injuries, slow results and burnout.  It’s like trying to fix the same problem in the same way time after time and watching it break over and over again.  If the current method isn’t fixing the problem, you have to try something different.  Ask any repairman, they know.  It’s the same principle, except they keep tryin the same stuff over and over and over again, and I’m just sick of it.  Geez!  Pick up a book that was written more recently, take a class, go to YouTube, SOMETHING!!  Bring the “experts” knowledge out of the 1960’s and into the current time.  Our industry is such a fluid place.  Everything is changing all the time.  Things that were thought to be good are being shown to be bad, and vice-versa.  If you’re going to mess with people’s bodies, you had better have the most current knowledge available.  Either catch up, or get out!  If you are telling people bad, outdated information, just quit.  Do the rest of us a favor, so that we don’t have to re-program and educate your clientele later when they seek out something that actually works for a change. The Truth!
