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.
