What’s up, guys Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Today I’m going to show you something that might surprise you. As a matter of fact, it should surprise you. And I don’t whether to laugh, cry, or put my fist through the camera because of it. But let me set the stage for you. Do you guys all remember Jesse, my intern from this past summer If you don’t, this is Jesse. So, Jesse helped me film the Top 10 Workout Songs of all time. Matter of fact, he did more than just help me film them, he sang them.
If you haven’t seen that tutorial, it’s definitely worth a look. It’s right up here. That being said, the day that we were shooting that, we actually had some time in between takes. And the topic of supplementation and the supplement industry as a whole came up. Now, I told him about how I felt about the supplement industry and that there are some major problems. And he had actually read the blog series that I did, and I’ll link that down in the description if you haven’t yourself. But he told me something that I just didn’t believe. He said that he had walked into a.
Popular supplement store a week prior to us shooting and had been sold fat burners. Without even asking, he had been sold fat burners. Now, let me show you Jesse one more time. This is Jesse. Cartoon chuckling. So, I said, ‘There is no way that they’re going to sell you fat burners even if you went in there and you asked for fat burners because that just would be beyond irresponsible.’ So, we made a bet. I said, ‘I’ll send you in there undercover to go see what you can.
Fat Burner Supplement Scandal ACTUAL STORE FOOTAGE!
Do about getting supplements.’ and whether or not they would sell them to him. What happened next is actually pretty damn shocking. Actual film footage Ok. So right there I have 3 major problems. Number 1. He whistled and snapped his way right back to the fat burners, apparently here, without even a hesitation, without even a question of asking Jesse if he actually meant what he said. Secondly, Jesse said he’s not even really into working out. But meanwhile, there’s no hesitation again on whether or not this kid actually needed fat burners.
And thirdly, my big problem here is, it’s starting to look like I’m going to lose this damn bet. More footage So, uh, ok. He went there. He’s getting on the fat burners. And not just that, he’s getting him one of the better fat burners because we all know Jesse really needs a better fat burner, right. Take one more look at Jesse in case you forgot what he looks like. Jesse ‘Never gonna’ give you up, never gonna’ let you down. Never gonna’ run around and desert you.’ Jeff Crickets chirping.
Back to the film Yeah. By all means, why not the intense one We know that 5′ 11, 140 pound Jesse definitely needs that intense fat burning effect. And also, I’m not trying to pick on this guy, but I’m a little bit suspicious of that pronunciation of conjugated linoleic acid, I’m just saying. Film You gotta’ be shittin’ me. If he wants to make it work fast, he could take it twice a day People, if you don’t see what’s wrong with this, then we’ve got an even bigger problem.
Than I thought. The supplement industry is certainly a shady industry, but when it’s led by misguided advice like this, we have major, major problems. Now look, I’m not trying to pick on any one salesperson or any one supplement store. The fact of the matter is, I’ve been here. You’ve been there. You’ve gone into a supplement store looking for advice. Jesse clearly went in there looking for advice. And this is the kind of advice he got. It was a straight sales pitch to get the strongest fat burner he had in the store, and then double up on the dose.
And if you take one look at Jesse, you should know, this kid doesn’t deserve a fat burner. Wow. So that actually happened. That actually happened. That’s the most discouraging thing to me that this actually went down. Not the fact that I lost a bet, but more on that in a second. The fact is, I feel if you are a sales person, and you’re going to dispense advice on, especially in health, and especially on supplements that could actually truly harm you if taken the wrong way, then you better be a hell of a lot more responsible than that. Now, I don’t know how you feel.
About that. Some people feel like it’s not the responsibility of that person to make sure that Jesse’s wellbeing is taken care of. I, on the other hand, do. I think that it’s the utmost responsibility of that salesperson to make sure that his goals are clearly defined. He asked him for help. That’s not help. That’s ‘Let me go here and make a quick, fast sale.’ regardless of whatever Jesse asked for. Fat burners You got ’em kid. Here’s your fat burners coming right up. What do you feel about it Do you feel that this should have been handled differently.
Are you as appalled by this as I am, or am I out of line As for that bet and the payoff Go ahead, Jesse. Soak it in. Enjoy it. I will tell you this. Even though you got 20 years on me, I still wear this shirt better than you do, and you know it. Alright guys. In the meantime, make sure you leave your comments and your thumb’s up below. What do you feel about this tutorial Again, does it make you laugh, cry, want to punch the screen.
