Write an essay on the laid-back attitude of people who are going to gym.
The essay is about the laid-back attitude of people who are going to gym. Gym goers do not put any weights or perform any exercise. They usually come to the gym and talk with each other. This creates a negative impact on many people who come to the gym for a purpose. People often came to the gym for a purpose. People often get motivated to see other people working. Motivation occurs from both inside and outside environment. When people arrive at a workplace, then he is motivated towards his purpose of work (Gillet et al. 2012). At initial phase, the person will get self-motivated. Gradually when time passes by then, he needs motivation from others.
However, two types of motivation that can affect a human being. They are extrinsic motivation and intrinsic motivation. Extrinsic motivation occurs due to the effect of external factors such as interacting with team members, bonus checks, time off, etc. In this scenario, if any person has a particular purpose for joining a gym then they will get motivated by seeing other gym members performing the work. On talking with the other people, individuals feel energized and motivated. Nevertheless, here the scenario is different. The gym goers are not focused on their particular work. They chat with other people and divert people in focusing on their works (Lepper and Greene 2015). Apart from that, Intrinsic motivation is defined as a type of motivation that is present within the mind of human body. Intrinsic motivation depends on the internal factors of an individual. It refers to the behaviors that are driven by intrinsic rewards. Self-motivation is positively related to the intrinsic motivation.
The scenario that is explained in the essay will have an adverse impact on the society as a whole. The gym will also gather a negative impression from the people in the locality. The gym goers who are enthusiastic about their fitness training in the gym will feel exhausted to perform any exercise if they see other people are not doing anything. Apart from this, it is the responsibility of the trainer to make people utilize their time in the gym. In this way, the trainer will also gather a bad reputation in the locality. Hence, the gym goers will not portray a positive message to the community (Yousaf et al. 2015). Fitness is an aspect that is necessary for all human beings. The daily work and sedentary habits of the people make them gaining weight. It is the reason of people of joining a fitness-training program in a gymnasium. In this situation, it is seen that the people for some reason is interested in talking with each other rather than doing exercise. One recommendation is to be suggested for the gym is to introduce some programs that may help in increased participation in the activities. The trainer must be active and interact with the people so that they will engage in activities (Reiss 2012). The ambiance should be changed so that people feel motivated to do fitness exercises. The gym can provide recognition program for the gym goers for performing activities in the right proportion for increasing motivation.
