|Finkelstein, RD||Samantha||Registered Dietitian||San Francisco||California||United States||Nerdy Girl Nutrition||I love this movement! I believe strongly in basing my recommendations on evidence, while balancing in human experience. I love sharing with my clients that the number on the scale, or what you see in the mirror may not be a true indicator of health, and certainly is not any indicator of one's worth as a human being. Happy to be a part of this cause!|

|Morton||Jim||Sports Therapist/ Personal Trainer||Boldon||Tyne and Wear||England||I signed the pledge as I feel we as fitness professionals have a duty of care to our clients, and to the wider community to encourage responsible,ethical and intelligent practices to promote long-term healthy living issues based on sound researched evidence and not to adhere to any dubious superficial goals or purely aesthetic images. I fully support the movement to distance ourselves from media hype and at the same time promote responsibility and quality within the industry. Well done guys !|

|Gideon||Laura||Corrective Exercise Therapist/Pilates Practitioner||Los Angeles||California||USA||Bamboo Balance||What I enjoy most is helping my clients find their own version of "Balance" in their lives.|
|Parra||Diana||Physical Therapist, Assistant Professor||St. Louis||MO||USA||Researcher Profile||I was inspired when I saw this website after reading an article by Patrick about the efforts of the soda industry to block regulation and initiatives to reduce consumption of Sugar Sweetened Beverages, one of the main contributors to obesity and diabetes. My research focuses on the determinants and barriers to achieve a healthy diet and engage in physical activity, many of which include environmental and policy decisions.|
|Shepard||Dawn||Personal Trainer||Aspen||CO||USA||dawn shepard.com||I can become really disheartened with my industry. These unattainable images and false messages have to stop!! What about actually really helping people instead of just trig to make a buck on someone's desire to be fit instead of actually delivering health and fitness.|
