I wish I was. People who naturally love exercise and sports are so lucky because they’ll always be in shape and fit lol.
Growing up my parents forced us all into sports, mostly during summertime so we would be active and not just lounge around playing videogames all day, which was our preferred activity. I hated them for it then but I appreciate it now, as it did keep me healthy and I have a lot of good memories from various sports even though I was terrible at almost all of them.
As a little kid I mostly got put in sports camps where we’d play a variety of sports. Then sometime in elementary school my mom thought it would be a good idea to sign my brother and I up for track and field…awful idea. I don’t think we lasted a week, we’d refuse to run and would sit on the bleachers lol. Then 6th grade I was on a softball team and I loved it. Only sport I’m actually decent at, and the team was made up of my best friends. My dad coached us. Then for some reason I never played it again past that season.
Around that time I also got into tennis, did some camps for it, had some lessons, but was so hopelessly terrible at it I didn’t continue. Also in 6th grade I started swim team, which I was also awful at but found I preferred it to other sports because I could stay cool and didn’t have to run, plus I loved the water. (Sadly years of swimming has killed that love lol, too much of a good thing) I ended up sticking with swimming until 11th grade and I haven’t done any sports since then. I have some great memories from swim team. We had a lot of fun, made a lot of friends. My other brother ended up getting really great at it and swam for varsity in highschool, where their team was the best in state. I just went from majorly sucking at it to minorly sucking at it though, lol.
My brother after him was the least athletic of all of us…exercise of any kind basically made him throw a fit, he hated it and was unbelievably bad at everything. Then he randomly started caring about fitness in hs when he “bloomed” and joined the intramural track team of his own accord. So funny, as his younger self would have DIED in track, yet he had a lot of fun with it. I believe he had to quit once his schedule got really busy with theater and choir though.
My youngest brother is the only athletic one of all of us. He loves sports and has played them all. His current favorites are basketball and baseball. My little sisters it’s too early to tell, though one of them did pretty well in swimming. They also did soccer briefly but weren’t too good at it. But is anyone that young?? Hahaha.
My dad loves sports but our mom was more unathletic like us and did swim team as a kid just to stay in shape. So obviously almost all of us inherited her genes, thanks mom, haha.
