The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Meet/federation question

    Question for any of you guys that have competed:

    When you attend a meet, do you have to be a member of the federation putting it on? I was checking out the upcoming meets in Michigan because I'd like to try and compete in at least 1 before I turn 20 since I'd still be in the teen class. A couple I was looking at were put on by the ADFPF, and on one of the online forms for the meet it said you must be a member of the ADFPF to compete. Are all events like this, or only some? I'm curious, because there's many different federations, how do you attend multiple meets a year if they're put on by different groups? Just sign up for every group?

    One more quick question. May a stupid one, but I've never been to a comp. so I have no clue. Michigan Championships are in April and I'd like to go watch just to see what it's like. Anybody can go watch a comp, right? I'm not worried about a door fee, I'm just not sure who all can attend. If some places are small I could see only allowing competitors and a few guests allowed to go.

    Most feds have a membership fee ( SLP is the only one I can think of that does not ) Just join the day of.

    Anyone can go watch a meet. Go to every meet you can even if it is to just watch. It is fun to watch and you might learn something!
