Top Six Ways to Avoid Getting Fit

Mar 11, 2008
If you are like most Americans, you are probably overweight to some degree. The American lifestyle is no longer a blue collar lifestyle, and factory work and farm work are no longer the norm. As a society, Americans spend more time sitting around then ever before.

Not only are Americans overweight, but many also suffer from a lack of sufficient exercise. The benefits of exercise are numerous, as exercise helps all major body systems, including the cardiovascular system, the endocrine system and the immune system.

If you are a regular "couch potato", you may find yourself the target of criticism from friends and relatives who urge you to get into better shape. If you're like most people, you probably have no interest in that, since exercise is often a lot like work, and no one likes work.

In order to do your best to avoid exercise, here are six ways to avoid getting fit:

Stay away from mirrors. A great motivator for people to exercise is to see how they look, and what better way to do that than by looking in a mirror? If you want to avoid even the slightest temptation to work out, you should avoid mirrors at all costs.

Stay away from large gatherings or family events. Many people decide to get in shape for an upcoming wedding or a reunion. If you don't plan to attend such things, you won't be tempted to get in shape for them.

Stay away from doctors. If you are out of shape, your doctor will only scold you to exercise. You can probably get scolded at home or at work without having to pay for the privilege, so why let the doctor do it?

Wear loose fitting clothing at all times. A lot of people become motivated to exercise when they realize that their clothes are too tight. If you always wear clothing that fits loosely, such as sweatshirts and sweatpants, you will never have that problem.

Avoid your friends. Friends like to do things together, and suggestions such as "Why don't we start exercising after work?" quickly become tiresome if you want to avoid exercise. If you stay away from your friends, you can elude such temptations.

Don't get married. Having a spouse will make it harder than ever to practice your valued sedentary lifestyle, as spouses tend to notice such things.

If you practice the above items diligently, you should be able to avoid exercising regularly. That will allow you to continue to fit in with the average American so that you don't look too out of place should you ever decide to appear in public.
