I'm not usually too bothered by the odd Facebook post about Herbalife, Juice Plus or any other MLM products. In fact, I can actually foresee that some of these products might actually be the nudge clients need to live a healthier, happier life.
Unfortunately, last night one of my Facebook acquaintances, let's call him "Facebook User" as I'm sure that's how he'll appear on my message feed after he blocks me, put up a generic post inviting users to find out more about Juice Plus.
No big deal, right? Right. As I'm skim reading through the comments I see this response to an interested party comment about PT's not recommending Juice Plus:
This was Facebook Users response to someone asking him why PT's don't recommend Juice plus:
"Claims made are by people jealous that people don't need them for weight loss ie some struggling personal trainers."
I'm sorry but (close your ears, kids) this pisses me off. Not just because I'm a PT myself but I work with 100's of "struggling" PT's within My PT Website and over at the Institute of Personal Trainers and they're heroes!! They're working long and unsociable hours to have some kind of positive influence on what is probably not even in the top ten list of priorities of the clients they do it for!
So now, like an overprotective father, I'm going to share with the world, retaliations to a few common Juice Plus product arguments.
