Khloe Kardashian aspires to be a fitness inspiration on SnapChat, but recently she snapped back at her viewers for complaining that they don’t have her advantages.
Should viewers suck it up, or did Khloe go too far?
Rosie Mercado agrees that anyone with enough motivation can choose fitness, but she feels that “there’s a way to inspire the people that are following you” and that Khloe may be “inspiring more anger than inspiration!”
ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork points out that celebrities really do have enormous advantages in terms of time and money that make fitness a lot easier. “I’m not saying they don’t work hard, but I do think it’s a little misleading when we follow our favorite celebrities and think ‘If she can do it, I can do it.’” Studies have shown that the richer you are, the more likely you are to get regular exercise.
The good news is that you don’t need an expensive gym membership to improve your health. Walking, standing, and moving more are all free. “It takes 30 minutes to take a walk outside!” agrees Rosie.
Dr. Stork feels the bottom line is that shaming never works. Inspire others, don’t browbeat them!
