Every profession has their own specialty and philosophy in doing things. If it didn't work for you, doesn't mean the profession sucks. It just means that it didn't work for you. But they are able to help many others, which is why they still get good reviews and are in business.
While it's important to have a basic structure and routine for your daily lifestyle to keep consistency and productivity, it's equally important to break that structure and routine once in a while, probably more often than you think you should.
I got so frustrated seeing so many of my clients still suffering from injuries, nagging aches and pains that never go away. Especially when they just came back from rehab. And either their condition is just "a little" better, stayed the same. Or it felt good for a while but the pain came back. Why? What is going on here?
If these 6 movement patterns are not incorporated in a weekly workout routine, a lot of muscle imbalances start happening and you are more prone to injuries over time. Most of us(including myself) do too much sitting and slouching with our eyes glued to the screen all day already.
I just learned that the Obesity rate just increased to 40% in america this year. So how can the number of health and fitness professionals be exponentially rising each year, but the same is happening with Obesity? Something is not right. What the heck is happening?
"Push past the pain" was how I lived because that's what every "fitness pro" I followed back then told me. Only slowly did I realize that yes, almost everyone wants to look good. Because we think that looking good will make us feel good, more confident, be healthier etc. I learned the hard way that this mentality was completely false. I was at the peak of my youth and ideal weight, but never felt more alone, unsatisfied and most of all, in pain.
