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 ➖
