Would you go to the gym on your lunch break?

Let’s be absolutely clear—you’re required by law to have a lunch break. As such, for a half hour or hour or whatever amount of time of freedom you’re allotted per day, you can basically do whatever you want, so long as you make it back to work. Why not skip on over to the gym and rejuvenate yourself with a lil’ blood-pumping action?

It’s genius, really. You can keep to eating lunch at your desk while putting your body to work during work hours. Humans are supposed to be creatures of movement, anyway; sitting behind the desk or lazily taking a short walk as a “break” goes completely against our nature. Plus, that leaves more time for doing things actually outside work, too. Plus plus, if you’re the kind of person whose job restricts you from any real free time, a lunchtime sweat session is one of the better options in keeping healthy (and managing stress).

Go to the gym during your break and the world is your oyster. What shall you do with all the new time you have now, the time that was previously taken up by heading to some 7:30 PM class or direct-after-work treadmill sessions? Shall you pick up a new hobby? Dedicate the minutes to more intellectual past-times? Or are you just going to, you know, binge even more Netflix before passing out in a Doritos coma? Whatever works, buddy.

Some things should just naturally remain separate: Church and state; news and bias; men and rope sandals. Working out when you’re on the clock—even when you’re not technically on the clock—is an abomination.

Don’t the people who perform this travesty feel thrown off? Exercising is a time in which you jumpstart your day or end it on a de-stressing note. Throwing it smack dab in the middle would make it feel all wonky, no? There’s no functioning once your schedule’s disjointed.

Not to mention the logistics are all out of whack; who the hell wants to rush to the gym for a tight amount of time, lugging a change of gym clothes and the new outfit you’ll have to change into once you’re done and showered (plus toiletries and other such nonsense)? It doesn’t seem entirely worth it. Keep your gym time outside of work hours, people.
