When people learn that I’m a personal trainer, it always seems to be a segway for them to ask me their top health and fitness related questions. Most of time it relates to:
- how to lose weight
- how to tone up a particular area ie: mid-section, arms, etc.
- how to cure low back pain
- is it safe to take a “cheat day” while dieting
- how bad is 1 slice of cake or a few beers for you, really??
And, this happens everywhere I go. That tells me that there is a lot of misleading information floating out there. No, you cannot believe everything you read (now more than ever thanks to the internet) nor can you believe everything you see on TV (even though it may have been on the Dr. Oz Show).
So, below is an infographic highlighting the top 5 fitness myths…and, below that is a little further explanation of each myth.
