The polling station is open again!

Yes, it's time to cast your vote in another scientifically unsound, but fun, Rhode to Fitness poll. When I last opened up this blog to an exercise in democracy, I learned that the vast majority of Rhode to Fitness readers (or, more accurately, all 18 of you who responded) were already a pretty active group. No surprise there, really.

This time I'm interested in hearing from you about why you exercise regularly. I'm sure there are some potential reasons I didn't include in the poll, such as that the guy or gal you've been chasing belongs to the gym, so therefore you must go, too. But I think I've included most of the reasons people usually cite for spending good time and money to work themselves into a disgusting sweat.

So have fun, and remember to vote early and often — oh wait, that isn't right, at least not in this precinct. No, you can only vote once, but please do stroll on over to the "booth" at top left.


  1. All the above, sort of :-)

    I'm happy with the way I am, but I strive to improve. I don't know why. I assume it's a natural part of being human.

    Nice site, buy the way. First time here for me

  2. Thanks for visiting, Dr. J. I hope you'll return again soon! And sorry I didn't provide an "all of the above" option. :-)

  3. I agree with Dr. J, but I picked overall health.

    When I started my 150 pound journey, it was all about weight loss. Now I still exercise, for health & appearance!
