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?

    Results Fitness Center

    I've been a long time lurker, but I rarely post here. I am in my 5th year of college at UW-Madison, and I am going to write a business plan for a gym next semester. I've been an avid lifter/bodybuilder for the last 8 years, and I've seen so many people go into the gym with no idea about what they are doing.

    What I want to do with my gym is inform people about what they need to do in the gym to change their lives and level of fitness. I was trying to think of a name for this gym, and the best one that I have come up with so far is Results Fitness Center. What do you think of that name? Can you think of a better one while keeping in mind the purpose of my gym?

    No, I'm sure the name of the gym won't matter as far as my grade. But for all practical purposes, I'm going to write the plan as if I was going to really open the gym afterward. In reality I'm going to work for 3 years and save up some money, and then open it up if everything goes according to plan. If anyone has any resources or tips that I could read concerning this type of thing, please let me know.

    I'm not specifically asking for business advice, but I just wanted a few more opinions about the tentative name for my gym. Is that cool, lame, not descriptive, too long.....??

    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    I think the 'cool gym names' thread has been done a couple of times.

    Your bigger issue is going to be a business plan and finding a way to come up with the money to buy/build a gym and then actually make money at it.

    Most gym owners don't get rich. Lots of them fail.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
    I has a blog.
