Fitspo obsession will lead to more harm than good
30th Sep 2013 10:52 AM
THE obsession with fitness is getting a little out of hand.

That’s not to say we shouldn’t focus on it, of course we should.

But getting fit seems to have gone full circle and become an almost cultish way of life where if you’re not in the “go to the gym twice a day and drink diet shakes for lunch club”, you’re just not okay.

Somewhere along the line fitness went from being about health to being about hotness - but it’s still being marketing as health.
