I have been scammed and maybe you have been too. I certainly know that I see a lot of others out there that have been. You need to read this…

What am I talking about?

My gym has scammed me. That’s right, the fitness club that I belong to has scammed me. They lured me in with all of the pretty people and the fitness models and then had the audacity to tell me that I could look like them if I joined their club.

They didn’t mention when I joined that I would need to show up at the gym nearly everyday and workout. They didn’t mention that I would see results faster if I hired a trainer. They didn’t mention that changing my diet was going to be required and that in doing so I was going to spend more money on healthy food and supplements.

So now I’m paying:

  • $25 a month for my club membership
  • I spent $150 on new workout clothes because that’s what I’ve seen the “pretty people” working out in so it must be helping out.
  • I even bought a new pair of sneakers for just under $100.
  • Some ripped guy at the gym told me that he eats these nutrition bars so I bought a case of them for $50

Guess what? I went to the gym and I worked out a few times AND I have seen no results. What type of scam is this? Really!

How in the world do these clubs get away with it. I mean to think that I can’t get results by just showing up a few times. That’s just plain crazy. Right?



But the funny thing is, this is exactly how most people think. (Seriously, after you get done reading this go to Google and search on your local gym and add ‘scam’ to the search. You’ll be amazed at how many search results there are.)

People love playing the role of the victim. Most never want to accept any responsibility for their failures. Heck, it’s easier to blame someone else and that way, I don’t have to feel bad. “It wasn’t my fault…”

You see this all the time. People want a desired result but they just aren’t willing to put in the time of the effort to achieve it. So, whatever it is, it must be a scam.

Here’s the big problem… People take way too much advice from the wrong people.

  • They’ll take financial advice from someone who’s in a comparable situation.
  • They’ll take fitness advice from someone who’s unfit.
  • They’ll take business advice from someone who’s struggling.
  • And worst of all, they’ll take advice from anyone and everyone on the Internet.

Isn’t it time that people start accepting the responsibility for the results they are getting? AND, if they’re not happy with those results then shouldn’t they seek the advice of those who are?

To your success,
