    This week on The Surgery Gemma and Dr Radha are talking about sport and fitness.

    Do you exercise regularly? If so, do you do it to keep fit or to look good? Is it possible to become too focused on fitness? Or do you lack confidence to go to the gym or on a run so avoid it all together?

    I usually run 3 times a week and walk most places. I think I tend to have one day a week (just because) where I tend not to exercise.

    Me? I train in jitsu at least twice a week although I tend to do 3 sessions in total a week, walk everywhere and planning to do Tough Mudder in the summer.

    I think I'm a little too active

    I jog/run half the way to my class 1.5 km away and return jogging/running most of the way 6 days a week. I also try to run up the stairs mostly unless it's more than 4 stories up. I don't take the stairs unless I think I will run up them.

    I tend to run 2-3 times a week (between 3-5 miles each time) and then go to the gym about 2-3 times a week too so will do anywhere between 4-6 days of exercise a week.

    I exercise because it makes me feel good and makes me feel more confident, I do however feel guilty if I'm unable to exercise for a few days, get itchy feet. For me I guess it's a slight addiction you could say?

    Yes, I have a tredmill at home, and after realising that I have unfortunately put on a stone, I decided to do a 20 ninute run when I wake up, and 20 mins after school!

    I go the gym for an hour before university 4 or 5 times a week and walk half a mile to campus but to be honest I hate it! I hate exercising and sport. It makes me feel weak and exhausted! The only exercise I love is walking!

    I run 4 times a week, around 4 miles each time. On the days when I'm not running I'll usually do a five-mile walk, and in the school holidays I can sometimes end up walking seven to eight miles a day.

    I don't do anything else, but I'd quite like to start doing a bit of strength training - will probs do this when I go to uni and have access to a gym at times that suit me (currently only have access to school gym and you can only go in at certain times which don't suit me)

    I do compulsory PE once a week, but then 2 more PE lessons a week (GCSE)
    On top of this, I go to badminton club once a week, and hockey club once a week
    I also go to the gym twice a week, for about an hour and a half each session
    I want to start going swimming once a week too

    I exercise because I enjoy it. I like overcoming challenges and pushing myself, which is why I like going to the gym with my friend who is a lot fitter than me, as I try to keep up.

    Also prom is in like 3 months and I want to look good.

    I wouldn't say I'm addicted to exercise because I don't feel bad when I don't, I just feel better after I do. It took a while to get to enjoy sport, but now I do, I can't imagine not exercising regularly.

    Well I love all sorts of sports, but really playing university level basketball is my dream, especially at Ox since they are really good. But that means exercise seems to be an obsession because the level of fitness required are just too much.

    So exercise everyday, sometimes I do a gym after school and a basketball session in the evening after prep. I do running twice a week too.

    Yeah I kinda felt guilty if I don't do any exercise on that day.......

    I have been going to the gym since last month and currently go twice a week. I go because i have put on a bit of weight and wanted to lose a few pounds but i find it helps me to relax and i feel great after a workout.
    I do feel it is possible to become too focused as i have been eating junk for the past few days and feel guilty that i need to exercise more.

    I run 3/4 times a week, and do workouts if I don't have time to run. It's somewhat more fun than going to the gym (although it'd be great if i had time to play sports) plus I like keeping myself fit.
