"Gym Class Hero" Badge
Grown adults do not have to fulfill an exercise requirement. They don’t have to make a nine minute mile, or pass a swim test, or climb that stupid, prickly, nausea-inducing rope (Fun fact! Rope-climbing is the only skill-set learned in school that is actually less useful to everyday life than trigonometry. Why do we learn to find the angle? Why do we learn to climb into the sky?!). For non-pro-atheletes with high school behind them, the only reason to exercise is to not die. But when has that ever been an impetus to do anything?
WELL, IT IS FOR YOU! You take the time out of your busy schedule of holding down a damn job, keeping your electricity on, showing your city who’s boss, and clearing out your DVR to move your ass. All those stairmaster stairs may not lead you to a new corporeal plane, but they will carry you to the level of “Nice Butt,” and that’s a pretty stellar place to be. You get a longer lifespan, the ability to catch up to the bus AND this badge.
(An extra “Gym Class Hero” badge will be awarded for Jazzercize. Wear them both with extreme pride)
