Having been fully immersed in the fitness industry for 20 years, I’ve seen far too many assumptions being made and close-minded debates. I’ve been guilty of it myself.
But what I’ve learned and the reason why I continue to try my best to avoid making these mistakes, is that it prevents you from seeing the bigger picture and the greater good.
