Fitness business owners and personal trainers have a unique dilemma unlike people in other professions. Because a lot of their work has to deal with helping people reach their individual health goals, they are often limited by space and time.

How annoying is it to hear conflicting fitness and diet "advice?" Who should you listen to? There is just so much information out there that it can be hard to choose what and who to listen to.

Know that everything you see on social media isn't always true. There are A LOT of false claims from companies out there. Most of them are "click bait."
