It seems like most people spent the college years in one of three camps.
In the first camp are the athletes, football players, and people who work out daily, religiously. I think it’s because they either have someone to impress or are among the small percentage of people who are disciplined enough to understand that exercise is an important part of remaining healthy.
In the second camp are those who never once set foot inside the rec center, scoff at the buff dudes and strong women who spend some portion of their free time in the gym, and have a healthy disdain for all things college sports.
And in the third camp are people who occasionally went to the rec, maybe went on a sponsored rec trip once, but generally focused on their studies and used the distance to the gym as an excuse not to go most of the time.
