I'm a prime example of why these sorts of efforts would work. I'm a man who badly needs workout planning and coaching and certainly could benefit from nutritional improvements. In my intellect I know this well ... in my concious mind I have seen so many "sign up now" and "Bowflex-type" advertisements that there is likely no advert on earth that would gte me off my swivel chair. If those guys with the fab-abs and the sexy girls on the Bowflex ads didn't "move me", it's unlikely any amatuer advert/listing will either.
But if someone establishes themselves as an expert ... and doesn't try to sell me ... my mind will move toward action ... and people naturally buy from friends and people they know.
You know, I was about to start working on a fitness/nutrition website (working slowly on a pc game one right now) and I've now decided that I should do something similar to what you were saying, just a free site no flashier than Steve's that offers free workout planning and nutrition help without selling anything at all. I think that might be more useful to people than yet another fitness site, where I 'd have to write my own version of the thousands of good articles already out there. I just don't know where to really start designing a blog/website.
PM me if you want any workout/nutrition help btw
Edit: the two people I'd gotten emails from this morning has now grown to 3 as of this evening.
