EPISODE 546 - My Instagram Account got Disabled at 100k Followers

Today we are going to be talking about something unfortunate that recently happened.


My Instagram account was disabled at 100,000 followers.  


I’m not going to lie to you guys. It’s been a pretty sh*tty 24 hours.


Last night I came back to the hotel room and I went to log into my Instagram just to check something… and it was disabled.


The message said, “Sorry. Your account has been permanently disabled. You have to verify your identity.”


Then they sent me a text message saying that I had to enter my code. So I submitted the code, and then they texted me saying they would get back with me within 24 hours.


So now I’m sitting here and I’m like, “What the f*ck?”


How did this happen? Well, let me give you guys a bit of backstory.


There’s this fake Instagram account called “brianmarkfitz.” This account has actually successfully scammed a couple of my clients out of money. 


So, I’ve been telling my clients to report these fake accounts. They’ve been popping up more often than not, unfortunately. There’s an account on Facebook too. 


And for some reason, these accounts didn’t get taken down, but mine did.

I’ve Been There. I’ve Done That. Now Learn with Me.


I know all the ins and outs of online fitness coaching. I’ve made mistakes and I’ve had successes. But I’ve never given up. That’s how I was able to open my own gym and start an online coaching business that has not only brought me success, but also benefited over 600 other online fitness coaches.


I love to share my knowledge. So, when you work with me, you learn with me.


I’m ready to help you shed those 9-5 shackles and enjoy the freedom, satisfaction, and yes, money, you’ll get from being an online fitness coach.
