Are you asking for exercise advice from your doctor?

A study that was recently published by the British Journal of Sports Medicine reported that future doctors in the UK are not taught about exercise. The researcher stresses that it is important for medical students to be taught about exercise to bridge the gap with their training in medicine. This is to allow future doctors to familiarize with exercise recommendations in regards to helping combat diseases that are linked to insufficient exercise.

In my personal experience interacting and having medical doctors as my personal training clients, majority of the doctors I know are not aware about exercise science, or should I even say not qualified to advice their patients on exercise.

You may ask why? Aren’t’ doctors … well doctors? They should know everything when it comes to human condition?
