Instagram has brought us many wonderful things: a platform for emerging artists, accounts dedicated to cute puppies and hilarious memes. But it’s also allowed a bunch of women who’s qualifications end at looking hot, to give out fitness, health and nutrition advice.
And Tiffiny Hall is fed up with it.
“People are spending their good money on bad advice – it makes me angry – and I am fixing that bad advice,” she told A Current Affair during Thursday night’s episode.
Tiffiny Hall speaks to Mia Freedman about sharing a very unconventional post-birth photo. Post continues.
As an experienced personal trainer, with a diploma in sports coaching (and a black belt in Taekwondo to boot) she’s one of the few women with fitness programs qualified to give the advice she does.
But she also knew her limitations and turned to a dietician and psychologist for their expertise when developing her fitness and nutrition program TiffXO.
She told A Current Affair’s Lauren Goldman during their segment exploring the (lack of) qualifications many fitspo flaunters have, that she thinks followers are being duped into thinking a six-pack is a stand-in for actual expertise.
“I’m asked questions in the Facebook community all day – all sorts of questions – and I’m able to respond,” she said, adding that she doesn’t think many of her counterparts are able to do that.
“It takes 10,000 hours to become and expert, not 10,000 selfies,” she said.
