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?

    hahah sorry, I didn't know what you wanted from this thread...
    first off, how much money do you have?
    gyms are pretty expensive...if you don't have 100k+ in liquid assets then turn around now....
    if your looking at Golds or Powerhouses I think the requirements were like 300k liquid ish...
    thats just the up front money to get a loan and get into the franchise and to make the franchise feel confident that a) you have some backup cash and b) that you have a sense of how money works

    if you want to go solo, good luck to you! I REALLY don't recommend it, unless your in a small town, especially if you haven't tried anything this risky before.

    Golds has a min sq ft of about 18k I believe...the golds I go to is 75k sqft...
    figure a minimum of 10k that you will have to lease at 25$ a sqft depending on where you are...

    I could go on and on....but I'm not sure if this is the info you need?

    Yeah the upfront cost of a gym is huge Tough business to break into. Why dont you just work the front desk at one for $7/hr for the rest of your life?
