Did PE at school put you off sport and working out? watch


    I actually quite liked PE at school, but I can definitely see why others may not have. There was a huge amount of favouritism towards the students in the football/rugby/cricket teams... usually if you were in one, you'd be in all 3. As a sporty person I really enjoyed but when I come to think of it, there were times were even the teachers would name and shame some students who weren't as athletic.

    Everyone hated the blurpees that we were made to do.

    YES! Yes, it did. But it got better as time went on, moving on from primary school to secondary school and so on. I've never been very sporty, I was a shy child and preferred books and crafts over team sports. I sucked at PE and, to make matters worse, our teacher was obsessed with making sure that everyone showered NAKED which made me absolutely terrified of PE lessons. But at least I'm not a guy. From what I've heard, guys have had a lot more results-oriented lessons, eg making people run again if they weren't fast enough until they were. We girls were just told to do our best. But now I've started ballet and I really enjoy it so I guess it all turned out fine.

    It did not. The only thing I disliked was that we hardly ever got to play cricket, as other sports and exams competed for the time in the summer term.
