Do You Look The Part You Play

I just spent last weekend at a health and wellness expo. It was the second time I have attended this event. It was an awesome show.  If you are interested in health and wellness then attending an expo is the way to get a wealth of information on anything that is related and some not to related to health and wellness.

The reason why I’m talking about this is because like everyone else I was there to get some information and learn the latest developments in the health and wellness industry. But there was something that I did find disturbing and it just didn’t sit well with me. I noticed that there were many booths that were talking and preaching health and fitness and it seemed to me that many of the people who were working those booths were not in the best of shape themselves. It was just hard for me to take because they didn’t look the part they played. I’m not saying that every booth was like this but there were a few of them.

A great example of this was a guy who was putting on a kettle bell demo. Now this guy was a certified personal trainer and had done it for years but I just couldn’t get past the fact that he had a spare tire around his waste-line. He also keep referring to what he did for the people who were on the stage with him and how he worked them into better shape. I could only think but what has he done for himself because he just didn’t look the part. Although I was very interested in kettle bell workouts I ended up walking away along with most of the people in attendance because I just couldn’t see myself having someone trying to get me into shape who is in worse shape than I am.

On the other hand there was this guy named Tommy Europe who was speaking about health and fitness and he looked the part he played. He was telling the crowd what it would take for them to reach their goals related to weight loss. The crowd along with myself were eager to hear what he had to say about what he does and what he could do for anyone who was interested in getting into the best shape of their life. I think that he was able to keep the crowd interested in what he had to say and even had some people from the audience take part in some of the exercises he was demonstrating because he actually looked the part that he was playing. He was a personal trainer and he was in great shape and looked like one. I actually pick up his book The 10-pound Shred: From Flab to Fit in 4 Weeks because he was a person that I would like to model myself after as far as being physically fit.

There is a lot of information out there on everything but I think if you want to find some success in anything you have to weave through the clutter and find someone who looks the part they play. Learn to take advice from someone who has done what you want to do or looks the way you want to look and that way you will be half way to finding the success you are looking for.
