Reasons Why People Hate PE Classes


The Top Ten

1 They Expect You to Enjoy It

I don't like Math. That was fine. I also don't like PE. Some how It I was like a alien to them. Their minds went boggles - Jake09

They take the idea of having fun and playing games and burning extra energy, then screw it up with ugly uniforms and awkward people/ not athletic people getting bullied and great job you messed it up.

My coaches literally forced us to run multiple laps and expected us to "enjoy it". I hated it because my physical ability is horrible, and they literally do nothing to help me besides "encouragement", which I find to only make things worse.

People glare at me whenever I admit that I love maths and hate P.E.

2 Injuries

What's worse is when your faking it like this : Oh I'm hurt. No I never get hurt. I was just running around for 3 quarters with Red Frosting on my tongue. - Jake09

Once some dumb kids hit a basketball ball on my hand and I almost got it twisted. Nope, pull up your hand and throw that orange into a glorified laundry basket.

Alright the least you could do is spell injuries correctly, I mean, it gives you the spell check for goodness sake

My P.E. coach forced the girls to play volleyball and now my thumb is numb and shaking. Yes, it happened today.

3 People Can Make Fun of You If You Are Not Athletic

I have social anxiety. I don't hate PE because I'm "lazy" or can't be bothered to keep fit. I like doing exercise-but not in front of people. Team sports are a nightmare, and doing running races is horrific. I'm sure people think stupid, and find it funny that I came last in that 100m race, or that I missed that basket in basketball. We only do about 15 minutes of actual exercise maximum-it's a waste of time that I could be using for an extra hour to study. I'm a pretty academic student, but I'm guilty of skipping PE class-and it's not the same as other classes. Yes, you can't just not do maths if you can't do it-but if you mess up in maths, the whole class doesn't know. If you mess up in PE everyone can see.

It's much the reason I've gained social anxiety. I get grouped up with a bunch of athletic guys (because they thought "hey! we should split up girls and guys! ") and whenever I couldn't do something right they would laugh at me despite knowing that I've NEVER played a single sport before. Soon as the year progressed, whenever I heard "Okay lets get into groups" my mind would change it to "okay lets find a group that this kid could disappoint"

I used to get insulted pretty badly in secondary school because I'm not good at sports. They would all complain and moan at me and call me names if I couldn't do something right and I was just standing there like: "Do you think I'm being bad at this on purpose? "
It completely ruined my self esteem. Come to think of it, I should have just skived - I'd have been so much happier being in detention rather than in PE for 2-3 hours a week. This is why I get annoyed when people say that girls don't like PE because they don't want to mess their hair up...they couldn't be any more wrong.

so true

4 It's Just Kicking a Ball Into a Net

This list is excellent and needs more appreciation, I hate PE with a passion and every reason here is a valid reason to hate it. - HollyRolo

Not all sports are like that, you know. Though I don't really care for PE, I don't hate it.

Oh I'm stupid I like kicking balls into nets. - Jake09

5 It Robs Your Identity

Many kids (Including me) aren't very athletic, I box but its different and so I get bullied for not being able to participate.

Yep We all know this - Jake09

I love music art etc. but I suck at sports and I HAVE to do it every week. I never get to show off what I LOVE doing

6 You Have to Do It

Whoever made this a required class is an idiot. I have never felt some much hatred for someone I have never met.

Exactly! exactly! We're being taught things we never use in life. What I'm doing never involved what they forced me to learn. Want to know more? Look up Don't Stay In School.

OK I hate when it doesn't teach me anything and I need to do this. - Jake09

Gee u r so right, I absolutely HATE pe and it's just stupid

7 Doing it outside when it's extremely cold

Yeah, but what about doing it outside, when it's boiling hot! - RobloxBFDIPoke223

8 Loud Mean Coaches

In a game of dodgeball one of the teachers threw the ball so hard at me I had to sit out. Why should teachers be allowed to throw balls at students, it's not even a fair match-up.

This is true. Plus most of them look like they haven't exercised a day in their life.

They just love to embarrass you

Woah, The coaches are really getting over their brains - RobloxBFDIPoke223

9 It's Tiring

Yes Yes I don't need to talk about this - Jake09

Yeah because I'm not that strong, it's hard for me to do push ups. Running can tire you out, but not as much.

Aw, poor babies! You should never ever feel tired or under pressure, because that's just how the world works, isn't it?
Please note my heavy sarcasm.

10 If Your Late They Get Mad and Plays 20 Questions With You

OK I'm late and I'm playing this - Jake09

My P.E coach is strict and mean

The Contenders

11 Coaches Going In Locker Rooms

It feel loud whe I have to go swimming in pe I'm in parklands college

Defaq does this ever happen?

My P.E. teachers office is in the locker rooms and I don’t see a problem - ZeRater

Are they gay
Why do they want to see us in undies

12 It Doesn't Teach You Anything

Then why are we doing it if it doesn't teach you anything. - Jake09

It gives us exercise and helps us stay active and fit.

13 Coaches Favor the Athletic Kids

Back when I had pe they would pick a lot of athletic kids to play and not many non athletic kids got picked.#me though I liked it. But not pe I. I hated pe. And loved art.

Because the athletic kids are better at it, maybe?
That's like saying math teachers favor kids who are good at math. So unfair, right?

They always pick the cool and athletic kids -by geek animtions like and subscribe this will be in video so yeah


14 It's Dull and Boring

The teachers come up with stupid games that suck like nobody wants to play "football" or whatever

I don't like it because I can't do pushups and I'm a weak person.

The teachers should make it more interesting. Most of the things they come up with aren't fun. Some of the most boring activitys out of the whole class we play all week. The fun ones like dodgeball we barely do.

The only reason people don't like it is because they don't like sports or exercise.

15 The Ball Flying Into Your Face

It hurts so much! I had to go to the bathroom 10 times

Like I can't

I always run away from the ball, whether Football or Basketball. I have glasses, and I'm not breaking them to get you a dumb point or whatever.

16 The Mile Run

Every Thursday, my P.E. teacher had a thing called "Run Day Fun Day" where guess what we did the whole period? Run. And ohoHOHOHO. Let me tell you, I would prefer to do the mile run over what he made us do. Our school is located on top of a hill, and guess what we had to do? Go to the very bottom of the hill and then run all the way up without stopping, if you did stop, you had to go all the way back to the bottom and run it all over again. We had to run that hill at least 6 times before the period ended. Then there was the Stadium Loop. This is where we had to run the bleachers out on the football field, go up the hill once, go back to the football field, run one lap around the track, run the hill one more time, and then take a cool down lap. Whenever we had to run the mile, we thanked whatever God was with us that day for not making suffer. The only upside to all that running, is that my calves now look amazing! - Supernatural

I was gonna die halfway. It was terrible. Why can't the fat PE teachers run with us!

We have to run up stairs and down stairs through are run.

17 It Has Sports

Most of us hate sports so we are out - Jake09

18 Having to Get Changed

This is kind of weird. At are school we can change in the bathroom stales. Which I normally do but you have to deal with all the girls that are like why don't you just change in here. Then all eyes are on you and it's really awkward like because I just don't want to. But I rather this then being in my stinky clothes all day.

While this is indeed awkward, I don't think it's the worst thing. I just hated playing games that were stupid and no where near relevant to anything. - dureckl

You want to walk around in your sweat-saturated clothes all day, smelling like a garbage can? Fine by me. Not fine by anyone who has to sit next to you, or walk past you in the hallway.

Yeah, the last thing I wanna see in the corner of my eye is a guy in his underpants, no matter their body shape. It's just one step away from seeing their "salami and walnuts! " >-<

20 Getting Picked Last

I am usually picked last since not many sports are in my strong suit. Volleyball is just an embarrassment. and basketball is so very uncomfortable. And watch out when someone actually plays the sport for real on a team, they suddenly think they can boss everyone around. It's just a joke, but they've got to make sure we are getting some sort of exercise. If I ran the schools, I would just cut out a time once or twice a week where everyone goes on a leisurely stroll for a a mile or two.
