Do you really want everyone to see your back sweat? No, I didn’t think so.

1. Because you might see that annoying couple who always works out together.

And it will make you vomit in your mouth a little.

2. Or that jerk who’s just trying wayyyy too hard.

3. Gyms are filled with ugly people.

4. Gyms are also filled with total weirdos.

5. You don’t want to become one of those “humble” workout braggers.

6. Working out is ridiculously hard and no one should have to suffer through it.

7. People who work out SMELL HORRIBLY.

8. If you go to the gym, you’ll have to deal with fun passive-aggressive notes.

9. Physical exertion is terrifying.

10. Because workout equipment is dangerous.

11. Seriously, do you want to fall to your death?

12. Or get a black eye?


14. And let’s be honest: You have no idea how to use those machines anyway. Just go home.

15. This article in Shape that says working out too much can make you lose sleep.

And it can also make you more exhausted, and moodier. So, yeah, just don’t work out.

16. If you go work out, this creepy guy will be waiting for you.

17. And when you’re done with the workout and just want to change, this guy will be — OH DEAR GOD NO.
