252: Why we don’t share before and after photos

Using the before and after photos is the traditional way of marketing in the fitness industry. But, it sucks and it generally make you feel kind of crap about yourself.

We never share before and after photos within MerryBody Online Studio. We’ve stood by this for some time now and we’ve talked a lot about this and during this Get Merry Podcast episode we delve a little deeper into the reasons why we don’t.

Stuff we talk about…

  • Using before and after photos affects people’s mental health.
  • The seasons of life create fluctuations in weight.
  • The core of MerryBody isn’t about the before and after transformation but how moving your body invites joy back into your life.
  • If your decision on why you exercise is based on obligation, there’s no way it’s gonna feel joyful.

Here in MerryBody, we’re not about the before and after images… We are about the before and AHHHH, I feel amazing!

It’s all about feeling amazing with who you are are at this very moment.

And, if you want more of this, come join us inside MerryBody. The best time to join is right now as we are about to start our next daily Yoga and Pilates.
