The best title for the words “Sports” and “Health“, which create a unique harmony when side by side, must be “Healthy Sports”. There are countless people around us who do sports or want to start sports, but if you ask why these people do sports, you are likely to get various answers.
I meet each member who comes to our gym one by one. After classical questions such as name, surname, etc., I also learn special information such as sports history, disability status and ask why they came to sports. The answers I got are as follows:
I want to lose weight
I want to melt my belly
I want to tighten my hips
i want to be stronger
There is a wedding next month.
When I go to the beach this summer I want eyes on me
I can’t wear my old clothes, I don’t want it to be wasted
I heard that our Ayse wrote about the sport, that’s why I’m here.
I modeled muscular men on TV, magazines (Men) or crocheted model girls (Women)
The answer I didn’t get;
I’m here to be healthy and fit
It is a pity that a society that does not accept being healthy as a criterion will also enter the list of countries that consume the most drugs in the world and will be addicted to many chronic diseases. In addition, the weight lost only with diets or miracle pills will return in the long run, and we, who were very healthy before, will fall into the class of a little healthy or sick.
