Personal Trainer Writing Mistake #1

Responding to popular demand, I'd like to cover something I see lots of guys doing on websites and in articles.

You see this mistake all the time with testimonials and photo captions, and it drives me insane:

Chicago Bulls guard, Michael Jordan, performing a 58" box jump.

Or, in articles:

Core Performance Systems used box squats with submaximal weight in the training of New York Yankees outfielder, Babe Ruth.

,

To do this sort of thing correctly, you don't need the comma – and I don't know why so many guys put it in. The correct way to do it is this:

Chicago Bulls guard Michael Jordan performing a 58" box jump.

No commas. Nice and clean.
