When people ask "what do you do?", I often reply, "I'm in the fitness business". Once I was asked if that means I fix treadmills. While I actually have adjusted a few treadmills for my personal training clients, I suppose it would be more accurate to say that I'm more of a practitioner/educator/presenter/writer/coach than a "repairman". I've been called many things (some not suitable for print!) including the "MacGuyver of the Fitness Industry" because of the way I'm able to recognize whatever resources we have available (however limited they may be) and find a way to make 'em work for your fitness goals.

Einstein said it best: "The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know. The more I realize I don't know, the more I want to learn."
Getting in shape is not really as complicated as most "experts" would have you believe.
If you depend solely on the 'calorie-counting' approach, you must still consider Pluto to be a planet, too? Get with the program! There are better ways to lose weight than counting calories (aka: "points" to the WW crowd).
