Swish! The basketball swooped through the air and dove into the hoop. I love gym, and I love the feeling when a basketball swishes through a hoop. Well, some people don't love gym.

Swish! The basketball swooped through the air and dove into the hoop. I love gym, and I love the feeling when a basketball swishes through a hoop. Well, some people don't love gym. Some people simply despise gym. If you want to choose it as an elective, consider it wisely. Now we'll see why other people don't like it. I'll ask kids at my school why they don't like gym, and then you and I both will discover why.

 

I started in my class and walked to a different class to interview people to see whether or not they like gym. First I asked a kid in that class. "I hate it," he says. He also claims that Mr. Fritze makes inappropriate comments and makes fun of people, so perhaps people like gym but don't like the teacher. Personally, though, I like both. Mr. Fritze, our gym teacher, does make jokes, but they're not inappropriate. Some people may think that he's making fun of people when he makes the jokes, but he means it good-naturedly. So, maybe they don't like it because they take his jokes the wrong way and think that he means it in a bad way. I'm sure, though, that he is not trying to make fun of them or hurt their feelings.

 

I then interviewed one of my friends. "Do you like it?" I asked. "Kind of," he replied, "but we have to run a lot."I don't think we run a lot, really. It's just between two to four minutes. I like sprinting ahead of the other kids, and even though nobody but me is keeping track, I'm always way ahead of them. They fall down behind me like leaves in the wind as I glance at them while I run by.I navigated between desks as if my life depended on it, like I was swimming through an ocean full of great white sharks. I then asked another student if he liked gym, and he said, "It's pretty cool."I agree with him, it is pretty cool. It's also fun. He and I are almost always on the same volleyball team, and we have fun with it.

 

I strolled out of that class and back to language arts, and interviewed the person next to me. "Do you like gym?" I asked."No, I hate it. That's because I have asthma.""Are there any other reasons?" I asked."Yes. I also don't like running or sports," she answered. So, there are lots of different reasons that people don't like gym.I aspire to do my best in all the sports I play or any physical activities I do. This helps me enjoy them more. This also helps me enjoy gym more.

 

So, there are many reasons that people don't like gym. If you don't like running for two minutes a day, then you shouldn't join gym. If you don't like smacking a ball over a net then you shouldn't join gym. If you don't like stretching until there's pain biting like a rabid dog in your hamstring, then you shouldn't join gym. But on the other hand, if you like the thrill of a basketball swishing through a hoop, then you should join gym. If you like the joy of beating another team in a game of basketball, you should join gym. If you enjoy playing sports with other people, you should join gym. I like the fact that I joined gym. I thought about it wisely. You should too.
