Going to the gym or taking any sort of yoga class is a great way to stay in shape and keep healthy. This is a fact. You can’t argue this, because science has no room for arguments; science is that badass. While there are those who love to workout and actually thrive on it, there are those who consider it to be the downfall of society so they just don’t do it. These are those who buck the system and will not give into anyone else’s idea of how one should act when it comes to maintaining a healthy brain and body.
Then there’s the crowd who play the “I’m going to the gym” game, even though they’re really not.
At the end of the work day there’s this big production as this particular breed loudly announces they’re going to workout. They’ll even go so far as to have a gym bag packed, but by the time they’re out the door they’re either gunning it home to lounge on the couch or meeting friends for cocktails. Sometimes it’s actually more fun to say you’re going to the gym than to actually go. Why? Because white lies and dramatic displays of untruths are usually a good time. Hence the reason we do them.
