Home exercise overload,please cease to endlessly broadcast it.

Whenever I dip into the news ,at some point we cut to the dreaded home exercise woman.
Usually a grainy web cam,bit wobbly,frequently out of focus and features either a gym bunny going for the burn or some ancient granny in a baggy leotard stretching,jumping and generally being very annoying.
Those folks locked down who exercise are quite able to do it either indoors or outdoors for a limited time,the vast majority of the population do no exercise whatsoever and never will.
I do not mean the private classes that many teachers have introduced for their own classes that are cancelled,indeed Mrs B is able to tap,ballet,pilate and kick box but they are not being force fed through the Auntie BBC and others.
I wonder is it just me or are others on this site a bit fed up with these exhortations to work up a sweat?

Hi Bickler, I concur with your comments. Expanding on this topic a little , if exercise is so popular in the UK then why do we top the league in western Europe for rates of obesity and heart disease. Maybe the broadcasting of a nice crackling log fire would be more apt and less irritating. Reply

I'm with you 100% Bickler. I for one have gone out of my way to avoid physical torture since leaving school in the early 60's. At one point my brother wasted a lot of money on home exercise equipment, which was hardly used! His better half eventually got him to sell everything to some other exercise fanatic - correction, idiot ! Reply

They all need to find something better, and more productive to do like counting grains of rice, or even better grains of salt. I am waiting foe Mr Motivator to turn up then it will be slash the wrists time. Reply

It's all a bit silly and i hope no-one falls over doing these strenuous jump arounds because we need our emergency services for bigger things at the moment ...! Reply

i would put a broom handle somewhere not very nice im fed up with them to they are obcessed im with the no exersize group its not something we ever did when i was younger looking after a family and juggling work was more than enough for me. I wonder if the boss's at the beeb do their exersize or is it that they just cant find anything decent to broadcast i suspect its the latter Reply
