There are a lot of misconceptions and myths out there on anatomy and physiology that have prevented many people from reaching their goals. The problem is that people don’t know how their body works, what to feed it and how important rest is. My aim with all my clients is to provide them with all the information they require to be able to do this on their own one day. Although some old fitness fictions, such as “no pain, no gain” and “spot reducing” are fading fast, plenty of popular exercise misconceptions still exist. Here are some of the most common exercise myths as well as the not-so-common facts based on current exercise research.
Contact me if you’d like to any further clarification on any of these or any other myths you may have been told by “a friend of yours.” I love to teach people and see them achieve their goals and empower them with the knowledge to make the right choices for the rest of their life. Knowledge is the potential for power, so arm yourself with the facts so you can then make an informed decision on your fitness goals.
