Instagram Following Does Not Equal Credibility As A Coach

The online health & fitness space is SO saturated.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Not to mention that credibility is judged by how many followers someone has, how many likes they get on their pictures & how "shredded" they are.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It may seem surprising but👉🏻 None of those things are significantly linked to their professional knowledge or credibility as a coach.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So please, before you go blindly following some random ig fitspo account & spending money on their booty/fat loss plans, do some research.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ask them how long they've been in business for.

Ask them what their qualifications are & what certifications they currently hold.

Ask them for client testimonials.

Ask them if they've ever coached someone in-person.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

➖ BECAUSE even though someone has a significant following & rockin' body does not mean their an effective coach. #SorryNotSorry
