Thinking you earned your body

I cringe every time a YouTube ad starts with a fitness guru who forgot his shirt. The implication: I earned this; you can too (if you give me your money).

No he didn’t, and no you can’t. You can get a better version of your own body– which is entirely unique to you and what you want– but you can’t get his body any more than you can get his DNA.

There’s entirely too much hubris in the fitness community (I just threw up in my mouth saying “fitness community”), and not nearly enough results.
