WIN-Poll(ing): Do you want to get summer-ready?

Summer is coming! Are students currently more concerned with being in shape, or not at all?

“Yes, this summer I want to look good. That’s nice when you’re on the beach or at a festival. I make sure that I don’t eat too many calories, so little sugar and lots of protein.  And I try to exercise three or four times a week. I will stand out by a more muscular body.

Of course I would like to go into summer with a nice tan. Therefore, I’m already trying to catch as many sunrays as possible now. But I’m not going to work out any extra for summer. I actually already exercise loads all year round. I’m always very focused on my nutrition and exercise schedule. To me, there is no distinction between the seasons.”

“With summer around the corner, I’m definitely more conscious about my body. I want to have a more toned and firmed body. And lose my COVID kilos! What I mainly focus on is weight training in the gym. Once in a while I go jogging outside, but I’ve been doing that since last fall.”

“I don’t concern myself with getting a better-looking body. I’m happy with what I look like, so that is not necessary at all. It’s not me to go to the gym often and to be concerned about whether everything looks good. What I do need is new summer clothes!

Lisa, student Teacher Education in English

I think it’s important to be in good shape and healthy all year round. I go to the gym two or three times a week and I jog. This year, I want to participate in a marathon in Zwolle, called Halve Marathon. I personally don’t care much about how others look at my body during summer.”
