Why Pinterest Workouts Aren’t As Effective As You Think

I’m sure that I’m not the only one who has looked to Pinterest for workout routines. I mean, you’re bound to find a workout when there’s millions of pins to choose from! But, wouldn’t it be nice to know if the workout you chose was more than just aesthetically pleasing but also effective?

Many of us probably have no idea who’s behind the makeup of that routine. While the convenience of Pinterest is great, it may not be the most qualified personal trainer. Let’s be honest with ourselves—have you actually gotten rid of the stubborn belly fat that full body workout promised would fall off after only 2 weeks? Before you blame yourself for doing something wrong, maybe the workout just wasn’t put together by someone who actually knew what they were talking about.

The truth is, Pinterest workouts aren’t as effective as you think.
