The Ridiculous Battle Of the Trainers: Why it is Okay to Love More Than One Program at A Time

Apparently there are some people who are very, very dedicated to their workout program. So dedicated in fact that they will downgrade, demean and bad mouth any other program, trainer and even companies in what they think is loyalty to their program of choice. Here is a news flash: none of that is even necessary. There are plenty of workout programs out there and not a single one of them is the perfect one for everybody across the board. We need the variety to make us keep on working out, to give us the results we are trying to get and to make us happy. Variety is the spice of life, after all.

For years, companies have put out videos and DVDs featuring various trainers and celebrities. Some have become household names and some have been a mere blip on the fitness horizon. Anyone remember the Zsa Zsa Gabor workout tape? Some of the trainers have been working their way up through the fitness ranks while others lucked into their gig thanks to other work that they have done.

The whole, supposed battle has cropped up and reveals some of the uglier side of fitness and loyalties. The fight is getting especially ugly on certain review sites where one companies apparent die hard fans are taking their time to badmouth another program, the trainer of that program and even the fans. It went from just finding fault with a program to actual name calling and even to some very thinly veiled threats hurled from group of supporters at another. Like little children protecting their favorite toys, these alleged adults were all but pulling each other's hair and telling teacher on one another.

Here is the real truth: whether you are a huge fan of P90X or Tapout XT- your program is not the only one out there. P90X might move too slowly for some people and Tapout XT too fast for others. Some people cannot take a single sentence more from Tony Horton who literally cannot shut up (he even says that during one of the program's DVDs). Some people think that Mike Karpenko is a little bit of a cornball. Take the program that you love, do it and enjoy your results but don't you dare get all red in the face about the other program. Just because you didn't like it or didn't last through it it is not bad. Different strokes for different folks and there are more than enough people who need to get more movement in their lives to go around!
