    In my opinion PE nowadays is far too easy and lets a lot of kids get away with doing no work. This is partially why our generation is so obese. In my view there needs to be a more rigorous PE system involving workout programmes as well as making children go on diets for homework. This is the only way to solve this disgusting obesity epidemic.

    No no no, responsibility goes to the parents of the kids above all. If the parents aren't setting an example to kids then their kids will never be fit

    lol diets for homework. That would not get very far.
    Most obese children have obese parents, the parents are gonna cook whatever they want and after a bit of nagging from their child its game over.

    No, I hated PE because it was so bad in my school! Being forced to plan netball in shorts when its really cold weather makes you hate it! Especially when the PE teacher is all cosy in long trousers and a coat

    PE lessons are pointless, it shouldnt be a mandatory class over the age of about 10. I always hated it.

    What other method would you use for schools encourage inactive kids to meet the physical activity recommendations post-10, then?

    Everyone else can do the bleep, but we'll have you do the Wingate test. Lmk when you regret your decision.

    Yes, if we have PE it should be more rigorous and theoretical based, none of that running around. I mean if you approached it from an applied mathematical viewpoint it would get a lot more people interested. Aside from the obvious mechanical problems, you could bring in elements of game theory and other aspects of discrete mathematics.
    Or just don't have PE and let people do maths instead.

    She'd rather have them sit on their laptop, phone, iPad for hours on end.

    Let them figure it out for themselves rather than putting them off sport etc. with PE.

    Even if you make PE super hard, I doubt 2 lessons per week and the "diet homework" (unlikely to work anyway) would make any difference to the obesity issue. Also wouldn't it backfire in a way that they'd simply hate PE even more? If PE was fun for me then I'd willingly do it in my free time. But it wasn't, at all.
