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?

    HELP!! I need funding for a course...

    I want to get into a course thru Australian Institute of Fitness (AIF) but its gunna cost nearly $4000!! Yes, I get great qualifications at the end of it, can go around Oz or the world, but being unemployed, I aint got that sort of dosh...
    I rang Centrelink, no help there and I rang my job agency too. They say I need written proof that I will have employment at the complettion of the course. Well, if I had a crystal ball, I could tell them couldnt I?? Anyone in Australia got any ideas for me??

    Cheers in advance, Grem.

    My Canadian oppinion is: Get unemployment to help you cover the cost or.....get a job and save up 4000.
    Go to a bank and take out a loan.

    My Australian opinion is invest it in the NSW TAB
    Race 3 at Canterbury tonight should see Rich Count get up.

    But seriously, you don't have much chance of getting Centrelink to pay for it. Your best option would be to get a job, any job, and save up the cash. What course is it exactly?

    Its to become a gym instructor/personal trainer...
    I did some more research and TAFE might be the way to go. It will take 2 yrs part time, but Im happy enough to do that. Then when I get my Cert.3 I can start in the gyms and continue studying for Cert.4....eventually work for myself. And yeah, Centrelink were a waste of my F**king time.

    TAFE is good, but it's a pity that they have increased there fee's by a fair bit over the past year or so. Good luck with the course.

    BTW, I hope you didn't put any money for the win on Rich Count in the third at Canterbury on Thursday night. It came second. But it did pay $3.20 a place.
