The experience gained from committing yourself to understanding someone else's context is an invaluable one. I was used to doing it on a smaller scale as a trainer prior to this, but the idea of applying it to a member-based business was daunting. Not the most desirable endeavor, and I'd be lying if I said it was something I actually wanted to do after college. It's something that takes a lot of time and energy, but has completely changed how I perceive making a living and my place in the world.
I've been in this industry just long enough to know that criticisms, bickering, and disputes over implementation, selection, etc. are often carried out by those that have the time and luxury to do so.
There's no substitute for getting out there and applying, failing, learning, and applying again. Much like strength, it's an ongoing process outside all the books and PubMed articles that requires high frequency of genuine interaction with people. If you're not in the arena, you're just a spectator.
