Which Would You Rather: Exercise or Die?

I know the title of this poll seems a little bit morbid, but recent reports out of the UK are saying that only 38% of people said they would do more exercise if their life depended on it. So that means that if a doctor were to say, "You need to start exercising or you could die," the majority of people would still not exercise.

I am hoping that all you fabulous FitSugar readers have a different view on exercising, so...

People might have put die instead of exercise just to be a smart ass, it's a no brainer question.

I chose exercise! I do have a friend that flat out refuses to do any, even though his doctor told him it was a must. (He had heart issues at that time.) That was a few years ago & he is now past the point of even being able to make the effort. He is on a slow weakened decline now. I always wonder if he wishes he would have at least tried or if he still thinks it was bull.

Seriously? 6 people would rather die than exercise? And 8 people are undecided?

Exercise. I just realized I've gained 15 pounds doing nothing, and while I can camoflahge it do to my height and body shape, I feel horrible and really dislike it if I have to get dressed and go out. I need to get running!

Since I already exercise, I picked that. I sure hope no one said they'd rather die than work out. That'd be pretty stupid.

I've just now gotten into exercise...I don't love it yet, but of course I'd rather do it than die! It's scary to think that some people might die if they don't start exercising!

i have always struggled with my weight, but i didn't decide to do anything about it until i gained about 60 lbs in several months and early one morning, ended at the hospital because i had chest pains that wouldn't stop. unfortunately, some people don't get those warning signs. i realized that i didn't want to die just because i was too lazy to do anything about it.
