Personal trainer James Anderson shares 8 common health and fitness mistakes so many of us are guilty of making
With so much information making its way around the internet, you'd think that the majority of women would be pretty clued up when it comes to losing fat, improving their health and dropping a dress size or two (if that's your goal).
But sadly for all my high hopes, the bitter pill of reality is more often what I end up consuming as I watch women moving through life undernourished, over-trained, injured, and fatigued - simply surviving, certainly not thriving.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't blame these women. I blame the misinformation being shoveled onto the Internet. Information designed to scare, misleads, confuse, overwhelm and yo-yo their health from one fad to the next. I'd go as far as to say that the majority of information out there on fitness and nutrition for women is mostly garbage. Don't get me wrong, there's some terrible advice given out to those of us with a Y chromosome too, but women tend to be targeted more by supplement companies and so-called fitness 'gurus'.
In over a decade as a coach, I've seen all manner of mistakes that female clients have made, but for the most part - these ones on the gallery above are the biggest ones that have kept them from their goals.
