Who has all the answers?

Jeremy wasn't a fan of the heavy farmers walk yesterday, so we subbed "carry the coach 400m". We're getting him ready for boot camp, so we are allowed to be extra mean to him.
I see a lot of posts (and advertisements) claiming an awful lot of authority on matters of health and fitness. Every gym website you visit basically has all the answers. Every trainer knows what will work for every client. Every fitness philosophy is the best yet and clearly the best choice for you.

The longer I am a part of the fitness world, the less I am convinced I know. Why? Because the more I learn, the more complexities emerge. It's kind of like in grad school. Year one I was intimidated because I knew nothing. Years two and three I basically knew everything. But by year five, I knew nothing again, because I had learned a little about all the stuff I didn't know and realized just how vast it all was and what a clueless peon I was in the scheme of science.

Someone who claims to have all the answers is just showing that they're new to the field and don't realize all that they don't know. Be wary of anyone who claims to be an expert. We try to give you guidance, but we're just here to help you learn for yourself. Realize that there is no authority in health. We're all just fumbling around trying to figure it out.
