The 5 Fitness Foes to Avoid

Disciplined and determined dudes, beware. These are the 5 types of folks that couldn't care less about you hitting your goals.

The Inquisitor.

The Inquisitor looks at your training program and says, "What’s the point?” or “Why are you really doing this?” They don’t get it— and don’t really care to—but will make it their business to get in your head and persuade you that your end goal isn’t worth the effort.

Possible interrogation questions:

1. “So, what’s the point of having low body fat? Do you want to show off that you’re better than everyone else?”

2. “What good does it do to squat a lot of weight or complete a marathon?”

Our advice:

When dealing with The Inquisitor, know this: You don’t have to answer any of their questions, because you know why you’re doing what you’re doing. And if they keeping pressing you? Remind them these are your goals—not theirs.
