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?

    How old are you? Are you in college? If so look into a major called "Exercise Science" or "Exercise Physiology." I'm gettin my BA in exercise science next May. AND, if I get this internship Powerhouse Gym will pay for me to get my ACE personal training certification.

    ACE is crap.

    It's quite easy, pay some arbitrary amount of money to take an overly simplistic test chock full of bollox, then poof you're a personal trainer.

    Unless you were a very overweight woman and lost 100lbs of fat(make a poster and post it in your gym so all the other trainers lose their clients!!), you won't get to many clients IMO.

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
    Romans 7:14-25
