    Just want to raise awareness of the fitness industry at the moment
    of certain '30 day fitness transformations' and other scams that are
    being circulated on social media a lot lately.

    Don't buy any cookie cutter meal plans/supplements/coaching etc.

    The pictures you see are photo shopped the sh1t out of it.

    Sums up shredZ company completely. Essentially they went from
    peanuts to 400 clients/month at $220 ea = $88k/month = $1,056,000/year
    just on coaching alone from just 1 person @devinphysique + all the other people apart of shredZ.

    You're forgetting supplements and loads of other income sources that are exploited from vulnerable people aka people not aware brah.

    Don't get me started on the rest of them.

    I know but most of the people lured by it are those who are new to the fitness/working out scene and don't know what is achievable naturally let alone

    lmao

    You don't understand that its not just about buying a 'cookie cutter' meal plan....
    its the fact that the meal plans aren't even customised to each individual and its the same to roughly everyone. This is just one of the many reasons why people are speaking out but their voices aren't heard on social media because they don't have a large following/presence to even be noticed. :sigh:

    To be honest sometimes I just lose my patience with people who can't just figure it out for themselves. Literally with google at their hands, a wealth of information and credible sources that explain what weight loss is and how it works along with how to gain muscle ect ect and people still run for the quick fixes.

    Its their own fault, they're choosing to be idiots and the easy way out by just buying a meal plan or ridiculous pill popping because they just can't be bothered taking any responsibility for themselves. They just want it handed to them on a plate.


    I see it CONSTANTLY on my facebook feed.
