I think the guy is talking about a fitness gym. Probably would end badly to play badminton there.

seriously: do compound exercises (squats, deadlift, barbell row, military press, bench press). they boost your athletic abilities the most and the strength gained by these exercises transfer way better to other activities (e.g. badminton) then doing some isolated movements like bizeps curls and stuff....

For cardio exercise, i would prefer elliptical rather than treadmill as elliptical would have lesser pressure on knee joint rather than doing treadmill. Another plus point is that when doing elliptical i feel that my thigh quite sore, the same sore i feel after i do squat.

I still say, BUILD YOUR STAMINA, from my years of watching people playing badminton, most players are KO-ed by rubber game due to lack of stamina (mysel included ) ... LD used to beat the sh*t out of LCW (even now) due to this key factor until LCW up his stamina and staying power to give LD a real fight.
If you ask me, recent loss by LCW to Chen Long at Hong Kong SS is partly due to that also ... LCW expended his "stamina" in trying "to make babies" recently ...

I love squats, I can't do dead lifts, I'm afraid to injure my back doing them. I'm not sure what barbell row is, can you clarify?

As long as you keep your shoulders back when you're preparing to lift, ur back won't be hunched over and the resultant "lifting with the back" won't happen. Try the motion with lighter weights first to make sure the form is correct before moving to heavier weights. It's a great exercise.
