Realising When Fitness Has a Detrimental Effect on Life and Knowing When to Make a Change

Stop Celebrating Your Problems And Make A Change, With Former Drug-Free Bodybuilding Champ Skip LaCour

The dedication required in personal training and bodybuilding can sometimes mean that we neglect other areas of our lives. This could be anything from being present in our relationships to striving for financial success. We can get locked into thinking that all we need to do to be content is to dedicate ourselves to punishing gym sessions and obsessive calorie counting. However, is it worth neglecting other areas of our lives in pursuit of greater muscle mass and perfectly sculpted abs?

“Many of us in the fitness industry who live it and teach it, don't really realize how much focus, energy and willpower it consumes”

- Skip LaCour
