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?

    Yet another newbie to kick around

    Hey, just wanted to introduce myself. I found this board from a few members here that post on another forum. I swore that 3 forums was my limit....but after lurking around I decided to join.

    I work full-time as the Fitness Director at a private gym in SC and I also work part-time in EMS. Here in the south, exercise is not pushed as a lifestyle as much as the west coast, so my trainers and I have our work cut out for us.

    We just opened our second site last week. If I get a chance later I'll post some pics of the new digs. The owner really went all out and I have a bunch of new Hammer MTS to play with.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to joining the fun.

    -David

    Y'know, this wasn't exactly what I had in mind when the board administrator told me I would recieve a "warm welcome" in OT.

    Most boards you get a nice newbie flame to roast your manhood over. As well as the never-old slam to which there is no defence..... "STFU NEWB!" I never get tired of that one. You guys are too nice.

    Thanks for the welcomes!

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.
