I agree completely with everything you have said! And I am thankful so much for your response! I agree completely that this hedonism has caused much of a god complex with these people. They literally think their poop doesn't stink, and that they are the hottest people. They think having perfect tone to their bodies and very little body fat is the way to go.Just took my time to fully read it and digest the meaning of your text for the first time, ever and I agree to you.
It seem like being into health fitness/physical sport/athletic is just another pretext to show off, and to have a body as thin as noodles and flat as a mattress.
It’s not about being healthy or losing weight anymore, it’s just about «Hey look about how beautiful, perfect and pretty I am! »
More ever, there is the cliche whether being false or not (having basis in reality or not) that’s athletic people are also much more sunny, social butterfly and are light hearted personnes, that’s are highly in between this weird overdo performance of always pushing down themselves to the limit to the point of making themselves sick and looking down on others who don’t do as much or just don’t even care for sports/health fitness/etc in the first place.
But those same personnes are often also very hedonist, beside sculpting their body, or just wasting some negative energy into their activities, (like how gamers do with videos games) their are the very same personne who will tell you that’s you take life too seriously, that’s will tell you that’s you should profit of live and it’s pleasures, etc, that’s will sometimes allow themselves to make jokes on your body, personality, and whatever else under the pretext that’s their are your sport teacher.
I went to a gym a while back a couple times and met a personal trainer. He seemed nice when I was there, but I stopped going because it wasn't my thing. When working at the grocery store that I used to work at, he came through my lineup and pushed me to go back to the gym and he would train me. I told him I didn't want to go back and it just wasn't for me, I'm fine the way I am. He seemed kinda upset and just walked away. I was so happy when the customer behind him said that I did the right thing by standing up for myself.
This is also very hard on obese people who need to lose weight to stay alive and be healthy. They lose all their motivation due to the body they are pressured to have, instead of a realistic standard that they achieve only to stay alive. It's just not practical. This is one of the reasons I believe, why people just don't even try, anymore. Then there's those that try too hard. Health should be about health, and that's that.
