Am I the only one who rolls my eyes when I find myself confronted with images of topless men everytime I log into Skimble?
Just wondering...

I think people should just have pics of their faces, don't want to see body parts 😹

I find it motivating to know that real people are getting real results.

Yep that's true. Only leaving a false image of themselves in that case!

It's advertising in a way. If u was gonna get lipo u wud wanna now wat the end result may look like. Well body pics r an idea of wat u can expect from using skimble. No biggy in my opinion. I like to look and think that cud be me in a few weeks its motivational!

I agree with u. Pics keep me motivated to work thru a exercise. It makes me focus on realizing that if i want that body i have to fight thru the sweat and pain

I don't think it's vanity as much as a need to share with world fruits of their hard work. Not easy to get 6 pack.

So true not that I wud know, but as the saying goes if you got it flaunt it 😉

Well it's either the guys or the girls 😜
I used to have just a profile pic but because its a fitness app, people seem to receive more feedback when they show results.
