    I think she neglects to mention plastic/cosmetic surgery.

    hahahaha wow im so so so glad i read this before i joined, I was looking at doing a 3 month bootcamp after i had my daughter, as im also in training to be a personal trainer ( just needed the extra kick in the bum after i have bubs ) But have decided to instead go join a different bootcamp. Gyms for me are more outdoor training and thats what i really liked about hers, that i could get what i "thought" were recipes, meal plans etc then 3 group sessions a week for $37.50 a week for all of that..

    And yes i did see the pics asking which is better, i was quite disgusted in the fact that neither body was to the normal standard, however the girls results have been great, some dont add up though.

    wow so it's $38 a WEEK for 3 sessions, hooley dooley she is really ripping people blind and yeah no meal plans or recipes, just a list of good and bad foods.

    You'd be much better to pay a fraction of that for a bootcamp with a real PT

    The only thing I find offensive are peoples's actual comments on the photo (such as "The angel looks like a little girl with boobs" or "The diva looks like a man on steroids"). We all have different body shapes that we may aspire to be, even if we accept that it's not attainable to us personally, and different figures that we may personally prefer. So I don't really see her asking for a preference as offensive. But that's just me. It's not like she's saying "You have to fit into one of these ideals or else you're fat and ugly!!!". Just asking a simple preference. It might have been more effective and realistic if she also threw a picture of a more curvaceous, fit woman into the mix.

    But to make people compare the two, and make negative comments towards one or both the body types? I'm GLAD she didn't throw a curvy woman in the mix too, that would have been worse. It's not really offensive, it's just not productive and can be quite damaging.

    Yeah...! That was the whole point. Setting and supplying a foundation for people to have the opportunity to say that sort of stuff. It had nothing to do with the bodies (although pretty extreme). I knew she wasn't implying that we should be one or another. Platforms for scrutiny can become very dangerous.

    I don't really see it as any different to if I were to post shirtless pictures of two male celebrities, one of which is broad and heavily muscular with rippling abs, and another toned with light definition, and asked which body type out of the two do you prefer? Some of us would prefer the muscular, others would prefer the toned. Some may not be attracted to either! That's just life! Would that be offensive too? Because I'm pretty sure I've seen posts on bh in the past discussing preferences with male body shapes!
