who else hates PE? (or Gym for the Americans)

I absolutely HATE Physical Education class, I don't see the point of it, they say it's to fight childhood obesity but how the hell is jumping up and down going to do that? today we did circuit training which is pretty much just doing push-ups, sit-ups etc. and I just stood there for most of it. I am one of those people unfortunate enough not to be "blessed" with wonderful sporting abilty, I can't run fast, I'm very inflexible and whenever we play dodge ball I ALWAYS get hit in the head, I'm not sure if it's intentional but I wouldn't be surprised if it was, not many people in my class like me. Sometimes I joke around with the few friends I do have and say stuff like "can you break my nose so I don't have to do PE?" or "how much damage do you think I'd do to myself if I sprinted into the wall?", anyone else want to share their PE horror stories? how far would you go to get out of PE?

Exercise is good for you... but it sucks to have anything forced on you. I hated PE too. In high school, I often had to sit out because I didn't have something I was supposed to have, like the school shirt or sweat pants or something. I got to just read instead of participating...

I feel the same.
I am very fit and do alot of sport outside of school, but I hate the sports they force on us.
Inside of school we do:
Football(soccer) - I suck
Tennis - I'm alirght
Rugby - I suck
Fitness and Circuits - I suck at school, probably because I don't try and or get embaressed.
Swimming

The sports I enjoy, like karate, table tennis and badmington, we don't get to do in school. People in England seem to think all children should love to watch and play football.

If for any reason we have a spare Physical Education lesson, (example - Swimming Pool is broken, Tennis courts are being used) then we always do Football...

Remember just because your not great and sports, doesn't mean you can't be, I know alot of people say this but your mindset helps.

Usually if there is a sport you love, and you do it, you will do well/win, doing an activity you hate or find pointless, you will probably not do so well.


I agree, when, where and how you excercise should be your own choice.

oh god, i despise gym class. and what the hell is the point? if those fat fucks don't want to go on a diet and be fucking whales then that's their fucking choice. they have no right to shove this boot camp bullshit down our throats just so they can look good to the news, saying "look! we're fighting obesity, we care about kids!" YEAH AND WHAT ABOUT THE ONES WHO GET HUMILIATED DAILY BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT STRONG? OR THE ONES WHO GET HURT PLAYING SOME RETARDED LITTLE GAME, OR HAVE A FUCKING ASTHMA ATTACK WHEN THEY'RE FORCED TO RUN A MILE WITH SOME FASCIST DICK SCREAMING AT THEM TO HURRY UP? HUH? its so fucking retarded, there is NO reason for something like that in school.

Funny story about that......

In america there is a required test all students must take called the physical fitness exams....they are stupid in every way, shape, and form. So I did not take them.

Darn that was not funny was it....

I was just thinking about making a topic like this today! what a coincidence!

Anyway, to the original poster, YES, I HATE gym. Sometimes we get to go outside, which can be enjoyable, but not often. Most of the time, we just play basketball for like 90 minutes. It is a COMPLETE WASTE of my time, even by school standards.

Even worse, there's nowhere you can even rest for a second, people play basketball in every freakin corner of the gym, and no matter where you sit, you WILL get hit eventually. Most of the people in my class have such bad aim, that it's not even funny.

And boy, do the teachers get pissed if you leave. ARRGH.

I think you all are being way too hard on PE and the schools for this (especially Rebelnerd), it's illogical.

Gym class is good for you, do a little runnin', play some basketball or somethin', it's good for your body. You can't blame the school for wanting to help.

Rebelnerd Wrote:saying "look! we're fighting obesity, we care about kids!"

I found this retarded, in the fact that it doesn't make sense. Schools are always clamoring for funds, cutting out gym class would save quite a big chunk of their budget. It'd be much more beneficial for the school financially, if they had no PE class.

Physical fitness is important, no doubt. It'll lengthen your life span, that sounds positive, doesn't it?

Cosbydaf Wrote:Most of the time, we just play basketball for like 90 minutes. It is a COMPLETE WASTE of my time, even by school standards.

It's not a complete waste of time. It's a complete waste of time if you sit down and do nothing, then it's a waste of time. Moving around, being physical, is not. At our age our bodies are growing rapidly, exercise does it more good than you'd expect. Really, it's important to be healthy. And if you're already healthy and thinking, "Oh, it's not my problem, I'm fit, it's the fat people who need help." Not really, everyone needs to be physical, you don't have to be fat to be unfit.

Cosbydaf Wrote:And boy, do the teachers get pissed if you leave. ARRGH.

That's because it's illegal. It's called truancy.

The English dude and xcriteria have a good point. Much more intelligent than "OMG I H8 GIM, ITS STOOPID!!!11one1!" Physical fitness is important, though everyone knows that it's never fun to have shit shoved down your throat, the same goes for physical activity. Gym class isn't pointless, it has a very valid purpose, it's just a turn off to be forced to do something you don't wanna do, no matter the outcome.

Pyrokinetic, don't injure yourself to merely get out of a class, that's silly. Just fake the injury.

Oh also, Rebelnerd, being overweight doesn't only happen from eating too much or eating badly. A friend of mine has been overweight since birth, he's a big guy, that's because of genetics, not overeating. Also, goin' on a diet doesn't just lose you weight, you need to exercise. What you need to do to lose weight the healthy way is eat smaller portions of food, eat healthier food, and exercise regularly.

This thread annoyed me.

It's not that I don't like exercise, I run around the house all the time. The only exercise I get in Gym, is trying to dodge wayward basketballs being hurled everywhere.And when I talked about leaving the class, I was just sitting outside the gym door., not like wandering around everywhere.

And the only reason I did that was because I had been hit about 3 times before that, and I was sick of it.

This thread also annoys me. So did gym class. I disliked it for the example reason you gave Wolf, it sucks because they force me to be active. I completely understand what it is for and I recognize that it did help me.

Middle and elementary school gym class was pretty retarded and we didn't do anything that would get anybody fit. But the one semester it was mandatory for me to take gym in high school I became noticeably more fit. I tripled the amount of sit ups I could do and I lost weight. Then it was the summer and in grade nine I wasn't thinking of the future. So I got lazy and here I am. The most weight I've lost in a while was 10 pounds because I didn't bring/boil enough water when I went backpacking last summer.

About being fat and overweight... weight only has a link to health when it goes over a certain level. The right range of weight is different for all people. If you descend from northern stock then you will probably have more fat than someone native to the equator. Another example is the strongest man in the world. I was watching a documentary about strength and he was on it. He looks nothing like a "he-man". He is extremely thick and round. Some of that is muscle but he also has fat there. But the thing is, he is extremely fit and strong.

Some more comments about obesity. Childhood obesity is a much worse problem than adult obesity because when a child is obese it takes far more effort to get it off. An adult only creates new fat cells when they stop using their muscles and the muscles turn into fat cells. But children and teens are able to create more fat cells. In an adult their fat cells are filled with lipids and can be drained by exercise. Children get it off the same but they will most likely have much more cells and so will retain more fat.

And Wolf is right about exercise. The only way to lose weight is to burn fat by exercise. Diets can stop you from gaining weight and they can complement exercise and activity but diet alone will do nothing.

I think it's also worth noting that I used to LOVE gym in elementary school and still liked it in middle school.

But my High school Gym class is just really lame.

Like this one, pointing it out.

how? really, why is everyone forced into the PE crap on behalf of a few kids who aren't healthy? wouldn't it be better to have it be voluntary? kids would like it more if they weren't forced, and gym teachers couldn't just shove all this crap down your throat if you didn't want to take it. if someone wants to not take care of their health, its their right. and next time you feel like insulting someone's post, try to actually explain yourself instead of just saying "this is stupid."

I always hated PE. I would use every opportunity possible to be excused from it. I have nothing against exercise, in fact, I LIKE exercise. Back then we had a nice back yard at home and I skated lots. But PE was just annoying because they made me play stupid games with stupid people that hated my guts and just made it miserable for me. And they made me undress in front of those morons. That was actually the worst part. Because you couldn't do PE unless you got changed into those clothes Razz (so when I couldn't be excused from PE, I wore my PE clothes UNDER my regular clothes and just took those off. No peekaboo for you suckers!)

So, some people like PE. Good for you. If they made it optional, you could still do it and people who hate it wouldn't have to.

true. but still, if a few people have health problems you don't force the cure on everyone. that goes for a lot of diseases, not just obesity.

and i'll say this again: physical fitness is a personal choice! nobody has the right to FORCE a person to be healthy. if someone wants to smoke, drink, or gorge themselves on candy every night its their own right.

I just don't find sport fun, I don't understand why people enjoy it, I much prefer reading and drawing and all that creative stuff. I don't like feeling humiliated during PE because I can't run fast and I hate getting hit by balls, once I got hit in the head with a ball and I had to get sent home coz I got really dizzy and felt like fainting. If people enjoy sport, great, do it after school, don't force people who just aren't good at sport to do it.

Plus my PE teacher is a bastard, he's mean to all the people who aren't good at sport and he perves on all the girls, like he stands behind them and stares at their arses when they bend over and stuff like that, it's disgusting. I'm a girl but I don't wear shorts and unbutton all the buttons on my PE shirt like most the girls in my class (plus I'm not very attractive, I don't think I am anyway) so yeah...I'm not saying physical exercise is bad, I know that it's not good to sit around all day but I just don't like sport, I do enjoy frisbee though...is that considered a sport? anyway I'm not saying exercise is bad and fat people are stupid or anything like that, I understand sport is fun for some people I just wish people would understand that I don't find it enjoyable.
