The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Quick question about equipment

    Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong area of the forum. My school is giving out $500 grants for people who are trying to start a business to improve the lives of people. Thanks to WBB, Lee Hayward, anatomy and physiology, and other various resources, I've learned a thing or two about how the body works, so I am going to apply for this grant and use it to try and improve a healthy lifestyle for people. I have an open area downstairs which I could use for a workout facility, but my main question is what equipment should I purchase to help get people on the right track to a healthier lifestyle. I plan on getting a bench and weights (mostly for myself ) but what else would you recommend?

    Other than a bar and weight, a power rack seems like it would be the best and most versatile piece of equipment.

    prowler or C2 rower or some other conditioning equipment

    edit: just reread your post. Add a rack to your bench, bar and plates

    $500 isn't much...might not even cover the insurance.

    If you're trying to start up a business type gig, $500 isn't going to last very all. It'll buy a rack, and that's about it.
