ABSTRACT
The article discusses students who dislike gym class. As the author says, a majority, upwards of 80% of students enjoy physical education classes. However, a substantial minority of students dislike such classes. The reasons for why students dislike gym class are varied, but the authors found that one aspect that was common to students that disliked the subject was the feeling that they were not in control.
