6. I'm still amazed at the difference between the mandatory phys ed of my schooling and my health club

experience. (Today I work out with my personal trainer in a studio. It's even better than a health club.) The fact is I got no exercise in P.E. classes. All I got was just a lot of dread. The only justification for mandatory phys ed is to promote health and wellness. Historically the phys ed establishment has failed in that regard. Today there are some innovators and reformers who realize that nonathletic kids were completely disregarded, to put it mildly; but I doubt they're in charge of the phys ed establishment.

There are people who have achieved high levels of fitness who have never had any interest in sports.

The relationship I've had with the personal trainers in my bodybuilding program has been quite beneficial -- not at all like the P.E. coaches of my youth.
