Warning signs that our health and fitness approach needs course-correcting:

  • Everything orbits around one key person or guru.
  • We’ve adopted ideologies over ideas.
  • Refusing to challenge our current thinking.
  • Thinking that what works for us (ice baths! meditation! pilates! yoga!) is the panacea for everyone.

And then a few of the more obvious ones:

  • All kinds of divine community vibes.
  • The frequent use of spiritual or religious lexicon.
  • Word salads that make zero sense (vibrations, life force, aura, even energy in some instances)

Yep, the health and fitness industry is a magnet for absolute nonsense. But it’s the stuff that kind of makes sense that we often trip over.
