My friend says video games is for lazy out of shape people

It is all about balance and moderation. People who spend all day every day worrying about their health, appearance, fitness, etc. have screwed up priorities, too. Perhaps a scholar would look at her and say he is disgusted at how little she uses her brain.

A healthy life is about all things in moderation, and that includes physical fitness.

Out of shape people only play games? I train 4 times a week, do all sorts of different training techniques such as crossfits, pyramid, intervals, super sets etc......and I freaking love video games.

She needs to find the darkest corner of her gym, and stay there.



Agreed, I train in dutch kickboxing and live a fitness lifestyle and still play video games every now and then. I am not lazy, out of shape, or unathletic. Besides, there are 24 hours in a day, you have time to exercise and play games for hours if you make time for it. Quite a few mma fighters play video games to unwind after a brutal day of training camp.

Your friend needs to update her near 25 year old stereotype. It's 2013 now, games are as mainstream as movies. It's not some niche thing nerds in basements play anymore (not that those people don't exist). Go to any college dorm full of bro's (who are all shockingly not fat and lazy, go figure) and you will see a PS3/360/wii etc. sitting there. Also you don't move when you read a book so is that only for fat and lazy people to? I mean you can easily sit down and read a book all afternoon on the weekend or during the evening if that's your thing. I bet your friend wouldn't have a problem with that though would she?

Ya see, The thing is, One cannot work out and play sports ALL day EVERY day. I exercise about 5 days a week ( taking off on the weekends if I'm tired ) and on my off time I like to play video games. Your friend is wrong.

Ask her what she does to relax when she gets home after working out then tell her that is for lazy out of shape people.

OP - While I agree with her for the most part, you might want to remind her that allot of video gamers are serving in the military, enough that they have actually modified video game controllers to operate combat weapons in order to give familiarity to the troops. Most I have come across are idiots, or at least were when they enlisted, but it DOES at least show that they're not couch potatoes.

You said "my friend" instead of "my former friend" so your intellect is about as high as hers.

Throwing friendship away over such a small matter seams to me like the dumber thing to do.
