同学们好,你们喜欢健身吗,健身可以让我们身心健康。当今社会都是久坐的生活方式(sedentary lifestyles)导致我们既损伤了健康,又失去了人与人之间的交流。那么今天我们来讨论一个有趣的话题,以及六个实用词汇(where we get together to discuss an interesting topic along with six useful items of vocabulary to wrestle with.)为什么人们要去健身房以及为什么健身房会员变得越来越流行(we’re talking about going to the gym and why gym membership is becoming increasingly popular.)


I prefer to go for a run on my own. It’s free, and I enjoy being outdoors.我更喜欢自己一个人跑步。它是免费的,并且我享受户外活动。


I go because I really like the SPIN classes.好吧,我去健身房是因为我真的喜欢SPIN课。


If I wasn’t in a class, I don’t think I would push myself so hard. I need someone to shout at me, to make me go faster and get up those hills.好吧,是的,是那个!如果我不参加课程的话,我不认为自己能把自己逼得这么紧。我需要有人冲我喊,让我跑得更快,勇攀高峰。


And if you push yourself, you force yourself to try harder, you set yourself a challenge.如果你逼自己,就是强迫自己去更努力,你给自己设置了一个挑战。


As people have become more sedentary, they’ve realized that they need to move for their health.随着人们久坐的时间越来越长,他们意识到他们需要为了自己的健康动起来。


We work about 35% more hours than we used to work in the 60s. And people are too busy to play sports.我们工作时间比60年代的时候增长了35%。并且人们太忙以至于没有时间做运动。


Society has become fragmented and a lot of the things that used to bring people together don’t exist anymore. But, you know, we’re tribal animals, pack animals.社会群体分化,许多过去将人们聚集在一起的事物不再存在。但是你知道的,我们是部族生物,群居动物。


And the gym has been one of the things that helps people to commune.并且健身房已经成为了帮助人们密切联系的事物之一。


Because we’re busier with work, we have less time to take exercise.因为我们工作越来越忙碌,我们用来锻炼的时间就越来越少。


Why are we choosing to go to the gym these days, rather than heading down to the park to play football? It’s because society has become fragmented. And we’re losing the social connectedness that made it easy to get together and take exercise.所以为什么现在我们选择去健身房而不是去公园里踢足球呢?菲利普认为是因为社会变得分化。并且我们正在失去令聚集与锻炼变得容易的社会联系。


For example, Rob likes to commune with nature when he goes running. He enjoys the way the landscape changes with the seasons.例如,当罗伯跑步时,他喜欢亲近自然。他享受四季变化的风景。


好啦,今天的讨论就到这里,希望同学们,在2018年能坚持健身,打造一个好的身体,迎接更大的挑战。
