A Cry for Education

Okay, I won’t hide it.  I’m peeved this morning.  You see, I have this thing about being good at what you do.  It is my belief that if I expect people to pay me for my expertise, I better have some expertise worth a person’s money.  If I don’t have it, I won’t lie to you.  In such a case I will do either of two things, I will either go out and find the best information and educate myself on the topic at hand or I will turn you away to someone with a greater understanding, who can help you better than I.  If someone is going to trust me with his health, you can bet I am not going to take any chances.  While I may not know all the specifics, you can rest assured that I know how to (and will) learn the specifics and that I already have a grasp of the basics.  It blows my mind how few people getting paid to “improve” people’s fitness have a grasp of the basics.  This morning, I heard someone getting paid $40 an hour explaining to a client, who was wearing two knee braces, how excellent the pull up is for “developing the chest”.  Really?  Not to be rude, but do you really think you deserve your fee?  Personally, I think that hiring such a person is equivalent to hiring a chef, who thinks that you put baking powder in cookies for the flavor.  I hate to sound so dismissive of your knowledge, but do you really have to lie to your clients to hide your lack of knowledge?  Read, watch, and learn.  Repeat the process.  Don’t risk someones health so you can make a dime.
