The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Poll - Are you aware that Wannabebig and AtLarge Nutrition are the same company?

    Hi there,

    We're doing a bit of research and we would like to know how many of you are aware that Wannabebig and AtLarge Nutrition are the same company? (funded and owned by the same people)

    We’d really appreciate it for you could take a moment to vote in this poll – as always, give us your straight and truthful answer!

    Thanks!

    Daniel

    I am currently on my first tubs of Nitrean, Opticen, and Results. But for awhile I had no idea that AtLarge and Wannabe were the same. And that buying supps from AtLarge directly helped Wannabe, I did not know that at first.

    I didnt realize it when I first joined, but within the first month it became pretty obvious. Especially if you read the articles or go in the Supplement forum.

    Same here. I felt that WBB was at the least driven/funded by ALN.

    The forums dont seam to be tooo swayed toward ALN products so I figure theres not much conflict with other supps or suppliers.

    I knew ALN and WBB were affiliated like Honda/Acura or Toyota/Lexus automobiles but didn't know they were the exact same company. Maybe its because I only book marked the forum section onto my favorites.

    As others have said: Didn't know at first, but wasn't overly shocked about it, about a month or two later.

    No I had assumed Wannabebig was with Optimum Nutrition and you guys were just really bad businessman.

    Should have put another category- "Never though about it." I usually don't think of a message board as a "company..." I mean, what do they sell?

    FYI: The link is not clickable. I had to copy and paste.

    And anyone who has spent any considerable time here should have realized that ALN and WBB are affiliated. If they weren't there would be other sponsors and competition in nutrition and supplements sold here.

    you do realize you just told people that they are the same company, then ask if they know, thereby destroying the validity of the poll LOL You'd need to reformat this question to even consider it to be accurate.

    I bet they didn't ask the kangaroos first.

    I hear ya, but I find it highly unlikely that if someone wasn't aware of it before reading the poll they would answer yes because they literally just learned of it.

    Not really, the question was asked in a past tense wasn't it? "Did you know" not "Are you now finding out". I think most people would put No if they didn't know previous to the PM.

    On a side note I need me some mo Nitrean.
