Top Ten Worst Things About P. E./Gym Class

The Top Ten

Fitness Tests

I flunk each one with flying colour. I don't care, because fitness tests are torture and failing them are normal (in my point of view).

Why we even need fitness tests for? Like what is that going help us succeed in life anyways?

I am definitely not athletic, and just the thought of the pacer test makes me want to puke

The fitness gram pacer test is a suffering way to make you pass out

Kids Who Take Sports Too Seriously

I hate their hypocritical personalities. When I don't participate, they yell at me to do something... ANYTHING! However, when I actually do try to do something, they end up criticizing me for one teensy mistake and tell me to just not do anything. I could be so much more athletic without them.

In short, idiots who fail everything else, but are said to be doing well in school because they can kick a runt of the litter in the face. This is the devolution of education itself.

I'm Bad At Every Sport Exepet Baseball. NRM about that in 4the grade I was terrible at basketball and everyone was like "wow" "that was so easy" it's annoying and made me lose my mind when I go to p.e or gym class

Luckily my school is mainly of nerds. I press F if jocks are around you and picks on you for failing PE.

Getting Hit in the Head with a Ball

I got hit in the face with a basketball some moron chucked across the gym. It bent the frames of my glasses and hit me hard enough that my nose started bleeding. The coach did nothing, the kid laughed, I got a low grade for sitting out the rest of class due to the horrible headache that followed. It knocked down my 4.0 gpa. That class ruined my life. It's required to graduate too.

Balls like to hit me there one time I almost broke my nose with a basketball

So many headaches, so many nosebleeds, so little action from the coaches.

I got hit in the head with a basketball twice and it didn't hurt.

Pushy P.E. Teachers

My P.E. teacher is a real jerk. She told us that we still had to exercise in gym class after my friend and I did the blood drive. She said she had done it too, so we should be able to exercise even though my gym teacher literally just watches us do everything...

My gym teacher is so mean. I asked if I could go to the nurse because my side hurt he said "no its because your out of shape"
He is so out of shape.

I had one who called everyone unfit just because we couldn't keep up with a couple of super athletic kids.

My PE teacher is the devil

When You Get Put on a Really Bad Team

This never really got to me - the other kids on pretty much every bad team I was put on were actually trying, but couldn't help not being very athletic.

I don't care, as I am the guy who is terrible. I wish I could opt out in team games and do math instead. Math is 100x better.

I hate it so much when I get stuck on a team with people that think they're cool for not even trying.


All we do is just run. Run, run, run. Fridays are the worst. We have to run five laps in the blazing hot sun. It doesn't help that I have P.E during the hottest time of the day. Yay. Also that some of the fastest kids are in my class, it just makes everyone else look bad. Especially me and some of my friends. We're actually average, it's just everyone else is above average. And for some reason the P.E teachers expect you to be above average. I don't even try anymore. I just don't see the point. You'll be judged either way for being slow. Besides, I honestly don't care if people think I'm slow. I've got the A's in classes, you don't. Your loss for focusing on P.E instead of real knowledge. I could rant for thirty minutes straight about this, but I should probably just end it here. If you know me in real life, you'll know this is me. I am the #1 P.E hater.

How about SPORTS? Just running the whole period sucks and does not technically count as a sport

I'm an average runner like I can win a race sometimes

I'm the slowest runner I'm my class

When You Get Graded on How Good You are at Sports

This is awful. I thankfully was graded for just being present in class. I would never be good at sports due to my low physique, and if that happened I would fall at P.E.

I'm still thanking the Gods my school never went this far with PE class.

I'm good at basketball, but horrible at volleyball

Same in my school.
"Either you're good at it or not"

Cuts and Bruises

My old school often made us do PE on the harsh concrete in the summer, and someone ended up with a grazed elbow or knee nearly every time (I can remember being sent to the nurse at least six times thanks to that). Bruises from getting tackled and knocked down in the hall weren't that much less unpleasant either.

When the Gym Teacher Measures Your Weight/Fat Percentage.

Because if there's one thing kids won't do, it's make fun your weight...!

That Anti-Period Teacher

Yes! Those stupid teachers that make you do it when you have crazy cramps.

The Contenders

When You Forget Your P.E. Clothes and You Have to Wear the School's Clothes.

In high school when we forgot our PE clothes we have to sit out and we get in trouble for forgetting

My school has a totally different pe uniform when you forget your pe clothes. They give you a massive baggy blue jumper and baggy navy shorts. It’s like they want to torture us. As if forgetting your pe kit isn’t embarrassing enough😫

When Your Teachers Tell You to Run and They are Sitting Down Eating a Big Mac.

This except my teacher's always on his phone. We are on black-colored turf and he makes us play bocce ball, which is fun if it isn't that hot. It's 100+ degrees on this turf. If someone fainted due to the heat, which I almost did, he wouldn't have noticed.

When You Exercise the Whole Period
P.E. Teachers Who Mock Pupils for Not Understanding It
When People Stand There and Let the Ball Hit the Ground Instead of Saying "I Got It" and Going for It

This mainly happens in volleyball.

I feel so bad because I'm bad at volleyball and I just can't seem to hit the ball and people get mad at me, LIKE THE HECK I'm TRYING

Being Bullied for Not Being Good at Sports

When I was doing Physical Education in school, we do the sport I can't stand the most (Football). Neither the teachers or the kids, pick me or my autistic friend in a good team, they put us on a team of the people we don't like.

The kids always put me in goal (I Hate) every time I miss the ball, they will rage at me. Sometimes they make me cry, my friend was also a goalie and he got abused badly.

Not everyone can be really athletic - these bullies really ought to put themselves in the shoes of some of the poor kids who suffer from things like heart problems, bad asthma, leg injuries they never fully recovered from, the list goes on.

A kid in my gym class does this and the thing I messed up on he did it about five minutes earlier. But I know he just wants to be a bully so I ignore him

I hate jocks with a burning passion, as always.

Failing If You Don't Change

When I was late at P.E because I was helping my literature teacher with the paper and I forgot that it was P.E and I forgot to change, so I rushed down to the gymnasium and my teacher screams at me and tells me that I failed because I didn't have proper attire.

The Locker Room

Here I am, one of the few people that actually values privacy, forced to bathe with a buch of naked guys...

Has anyone ever heard of deodorant? No? Well that explains a lot.

Bring deodorant as always. Then, unleash it everywhere.


Getting a Low Grade for Not Showing Up One Time

My gym teacher was always late for class every day. Because I had that class first hour. When ever I got to class the locker room was locked up. We had to wait in front of the door every morning for her to open the door. Most of the time she was just gossiping with the other teachers. Once I left my backpack in the locker room and the teacher would not unlock the dooe

I hate it when that happens. My life is miserable because my family value PE grades. When I get a 0 my mom gets the belt and my dad gets the pepper spray. Help me...

Once this happened to me. It was a holiday but there was school. I got a five. It was one class and it was a holiday, yet I got a five.

Thankfully my parents don't care about PE.

Constantly Screwing Up and Embarrassing Yourself

When you mess up the teacher screams at you for being lazy and stupid. How are you stupid at sports?


Dodgeball is the absolute worst especially if you are an easy target

Get this off the list I love hitting the people bullying my ass lol

I liked dodgeball but not getting smacked in the face

When People Ask You Why Do You Not Like Gym

My teacher lets me sit out and gym. I sit on the bench, some people ask; are you ok, who do you not like Gym or why do you not play gym. Gym is torture! It's in the morning for my class.. I'm in grade 4. lot of people have to do it.. But I don't have to, but... There is games, but sometimes it's Doctor dodgeball, and stuff... It's still torture even if there is games like.. Octopus, tag and stuff..l Hate tag..

It makes me lose my only little bit of self-esteem!

When the P.E. Teacher is Fat and Tells You to Run Around the Gym

Complete nonsense

Being Forced to Learn Different Sports

I find it ridiculous that even if you never plan on using it a day in your life, and no job other than ones within that specific sport require the knowledge and ability to play it, it is mandatory to learn how to play baseball, football, soccer etc. While these are definitely fun and exciting ways to exercise and build social skills with your peers, it can be the most aggravating waste of time if you are not interested. It should be the student's choice if they would like to play a sport, or if they would like non-competitive fitness training (weightlifting, treadmills, bikes, etc.) only to improve their physical condition.

And don't give me that "Oh, but sports help kids get better grades and learn important skills and stay out of trouble and release energy, so of course it's mandatory! " stuff. I've known people who haven't played a single physical sport in their lives and had straight A's, went to the top high schools, and ended up in the most prestigious colleges in regards ...more
