Working out is freakishly hard especially when you are a Pakistani living in Pakistan. There are two reasons behind that: Firstly, you’re lazy as hell and secondly, there is no such thing as respect for the art of working out. If a guy chooses to skip ropes he’s called girlie and if a girl opts for gym-ing she is behaya, like what? There is this huge misperception that going to a gym will turn you into Hercules so in our society; women in most cases do stay at home and perform workouts there, so do some men so if you guys are “some of the people” then Nutright brings to you the following things that you can without a doubt relate to.
Finding The Right Place To Workout
It’s very difficult finding a decent place to work out in this country, especially when a gym is not an option. Nobody really cares when it’s an outdoor workout but the boy inside our home bounds it like an escape scene from some movie where the victim is trying to find a safe place to hide, it’s the same situation here because our brown families don’t understand the terms “privacy” or “space” and we are left to be on our own to discover a small little corner in our homes where we can work out. I swear, we could find Narnia in our attempts to search for a decent place.
Having Someone Walk In On You During Your Workout
We all have had the experience of walking in on us when we are busy with our business in the toilet but only workout freaks know the feeling of having someone walk in on you while you are in an awkward position. And to amplify the feelings of annoyance is when that someone asks: “ye tum kr kia rahe ho?” Like seriously person? Do you not see a sweating person who fell while doing a burpee cuz you just had to walk in, huh? And if this person is our Amma then boy she won’t go until she’s scolded you for being ignorant.
Natures Constant Call
Fitness freaks know one thing for sure; that they have to drink loads of water to stay hydrated and they also know the after effects of doing so: The need to pee; again, and again. In our Pakistani households, every baat becomes a waddi baat, even peeing. If we go to the bathroom, again and again, we are bombarded with questions like beta pait tou kharaab nahi hogaya? And you can do nothing but facepalm and lock yourself in your room and you can do nothing, but cry on the inside for NOT locking the door.
Earphones Falling Out
Whether it’s running on a treadmill or running on a track, for anyone who listens to music with their earphones the exercise becomes an exertion. The focus shifts from our body to the dangling wires that keep falling out after every few seconds and you can’t help but go like “kia musibat hai yar!” instead of the music pumpin’ you up it just kills the whole vibe. And what becomes even more irritating is when you have to carry your phone or device in your hands ‘cuz you don’t have pockets.
