How badly do some adults hate exercising? According to a new study by OnePoll for the fitness coaching app Freeletics, half of Americans don’t work out as much as they’d like because they just don’t enjoy it. But what’s crazy is to what lengths some say they would go to never have to exercise again. One-quarter say they would cancel Netflix for a year. Another quarter say they would willingly text their ex. Three out of 10 adults would reconnect with their high school bully. One-third would spend a long weekend with their in-laws. And over one-third would hand wash all their dishes for the rest of their lives if they never had to step foot in a gym or run another mile ever again.
