Phill Wright is a health and fitness educator, coach and mentor who sits on the expert panel for REPs.
He has written a passionate plea to gyms and fitness professionals, calling for a radical change in what he deems is the pervasive practice of promoting unrealistic body ideals, and for those working in the sector to consider the potential physical, psychological and emotional repercussions of pushing clients towards achieving the ‘body beautiful’.
The sentiments expressed are Phill’s own. REPs appreciates this is an emotive topic and that everyone will have their own distinct views, covering a wide spectrum of opinion.
Do you agree with Phill’s thought-provoking blog – that there is too much focus on quick wins, which can lead to clients’ vulnerabilities being exploited
