When fitness is your business you are likely to hear many advice that are either simply not true or cannot be applied for everybody. I’ve seen many different myths. Some of them are quickly dismissed because of how ridiculous they are, others are strange yet humorous and some are just plain wrong, yet they’ve spread around like they’re factual truths. Sadly, the accessibility of the internet has made it easy for people to share false information and the people that suffer the most are innocent bystanders.

You could also be the type who doesn’t feel confident in using all the equipment available. Whatever your reason, it doesn’t mean you cannot get fit or stay active without it.
