Thanks to Social Media, there are so many self-claimed “Health & Wellness Coaches”, “Enthusiasts” and “Consultants”, but are they actually qualified to prescribe you with the health and fitness advice you’re looking for?
It is imperative to be sure you completely understand any “fitness experts” qualifications before taking any of their advice literally. Make sure you always seek your advice from a qualified, trained professional! Qualified being the key word there.
Sadly, it’s common now to be motivated by our appearance. Don’t get me wrong, having a healthy body image is important too, but we should focus on what our body can do, not what it looks like!
Social media has created a world in which women continue to compare themselves to unattainable images and ideations of what they should look like 3, 6 and 9 months postpartum.
Next time you’re scrolling through your social media feed, looking for some “fitspo”, ask yourself these questions….
What are their qualifications?
Are they accredited?
Where are they sourcing their information?
Is there scientific evidence to support their claims?
Who are they targeting their program to?
Do you fit their profile?
