So today I just came across discussion about Bret Contreras's private behavior. It kind of blew up around the time he was making childish responses to a research study that went against his love of hip thrusts to grow glutes - he responded with an article that was kind of DYEL to the researcher publishing it.
That lead to people bringing up his relationship with a fitness industry woman that he forced her to keep private. She around the same time moved out of the place they bought together, saying he was cheating, verbally abusive, physically intimidating, possible even physically abusive (grabbing rather than hitting), and gaslighting her about how he was cheating and flirting with these other women.
This is doubly bad optics as Bret's DYEL response article was published in Alan Aragon's Research Review. Alan Aragon himself has been trying to repair himself and his reputation for a few years because he had a problem with becoming drunk at conferences and making inappropriate advances.
I imagine the two of them are just a tip of an iceberg in terms of how many people (primarily men, but not just men) in the fitness industry that are probably horrible sexual harassers to worse. Does the industry need some kind of movement to bring more of this to light? How does this get navigated - fitness has the unique problems that at times, a person may need to touch rather private areas to guide movement, or assess activation, etc, and the industry is in large part based on critique other people's bodies.
