I see this as an impact of having government involved with our health insurance and classifying what “healthy” activities are or are not.
I do not think fitness is something that needs to be regulated, as you can find good trainers by the results with their clients and not based on a specific certification. I also believe that techniques that get results can be significantly different and still be good. I don’t think it’s the government’s job to say what training method is “best”, but I might just be a sceptic and don’t want government involved in something I don’t think they should be involved in.
What do you think? Is the fitness industry something that needs to be regulated like other professions (doctors, engineers, dieticians…etc)?
