The “Who Do You Trust?” thread REALLY had me thinking about how many people are quite frankly misled into believing that the Internet provides all we need in order to reach our fitness Goals.
I want to throw out something that I feel strongly about and that hopefully we can discuss.
Despite all the “free” Information out there, good Coaches and Trainers are STILL needed
Simply because you have a yard full of bricks, nails and lumber doesn’t mean you can build a house; having Top Notch facilities and the highest Payroll in the NFL doesn’t automatically guarantee you championships; and because there is all kinds of information available “free” on the Internet doesn’t mean you have all you need to reach your fitness and/or Sports Specific Goals.
Information is one thing. Putting it all into a PROGRESSIVE and COMPREHENSIVE program that steadily and consistently has one reaching their Goals is another.
This is the value of the good Coach and/or Trainer. I venture to say that the average Internet dick-waver, who pounds his chest proclaiming “all we need is out there” is no more equipped to devise a Training Program than the average person.
Yeah, yeah, yeah…you’ve trained blah, blah years without a Coach or trainer and are 220lbs of 3%BF ripped Lovin’…
Congratulations…but you are the exception, NOT the rule…
