This is a really good video every woman should watch, especially if you’re trying to decide on a training program and course of action to get fit, healthy and strong.
Specifically this talks about Tracy Anderson, but there are so many myths out there about what women shouldn’t be doing, what activities and forms of exercise they should limit themselves to… all these myths that push women away from effective training and away from good health especially as they get older. Tracy Anderson just happens to be one of the main people raking in millions from the promotion of such incorrect and actually quite damaging advice.
I’ve called out a lot of scumbags on this site and to be honest sometimes I question whether I need to better distinguish between actual scumbags and other people who actually do mean well and have the best of intentions, but unfortunately they’re just spreading more unsound, potentially harmful advice perhaps due to a lack of understanding or poor critical thinking skills. As the gentleman says in this video though, Tracy Anderson does appear to fall firmly into the “charlatan” category. That is, deliberately profiting from advice that is unsound at best and actually harmful at worst.
