The Risk of the Quick Fix

before

Oh, the quick fix… that magic pill and potion or “secret remedy” that people search for to achieve perfection. While the pursuit of perfection is an admirable goal, problems arise when people are too impatient to work for it. Steroids and performance enhancing drugs are nothing new, but in our opinion the rise of social media is causing more average people to put themselves at huge risks that have proven to be fatal in some cases.

Butt Implants and Synthol

Photoshop has become dangerous in that it gives depictions of models and athletes alike to have the “perfect” body or physique. Coupled with people’s desire to meet this unattainable level, some people resort to the practice of enhancing their bodies with unsafe and unknown substances to help them achieve their perfect physique. Most times than not these results are completely unrealistic and when you have ladies with dump trucks supported by stilts and guys with 21 inch arms on 16yr old boy forearms.

These practices have left countless number of people in the hospital paying thousands of dollars for corrective surgery with permanently disfigured bodies that they will have to live with for the rest of their life. The question that one will have to ask themselves is are the practices really worth it?? Are you willing to sacrifice your life for 15 seconds of fame??

The truth is that there is no quick fix to performance or aesthetic goals that will not be paid with a price. Dedication, hard work, and consistency are the keys to success in any training program regardless of one’s individual goal. Ladies you want to turn heads?? Get in the gym, eat right, do it for a long time. Guys you wan to get to that next level?? Get in the gym, eat right, and DO IT FOR A LONG TIME. Rome wasn’t built in a day and you won’t be either. The freak athletes that you see on social media put in the work to get to where they are. They put in the time to be great and you won’t be the exception. And to the ones who are on these substances… oh they always get exposed.

Save yourself time, heartache, and in some cases your life by TRUSTING the process.
