サンプルエッセイ

Topic:

Some believe that the best way to stay fit is to join a gym or health club while others think doing everyday activities such as walking and climbing stairs is enough. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

You should write at least 250 words.

Essay:

It is my opinion that individuals should subscribe to a gym or other types of health clubs instead of counting on daily activities for losing weight. This essay presents arguments on both sides, but leans in favor of my initial statement.

Looking first at the case supporting health clubs; many people point out that advice from experts is essential to dramatically improving their fitness. When individuals become overweight, it can be difficult to identify the root cause by themselves. However, experts can easily find out via an interview or questionnaire, and provide tailored suggestions, such as changing one’s diet or increasing one’s muscle mass. Indeed, it is common that some gym-subscribers achieve targeted weight-loss within a month or so and regret counting on their own methods, which did not make any difference in spite of sacrifices.

Turning to the other side of the argument; those who keep in shape by everyday activities maintain that changing one’s habit is the key to generating great outcomes in the long run. They are well aware that even though a daily effort makes only an imperceptible difference, it amounts to a striking difference over time. Additionally, daily physical activities have an advantage in being integrated into one’s lifestyle. This is because they do not take much time, and the effort required is not noticeable, while going to a gym and lifting weights are not only time consuming but also requires a concentrated effort over a short period of time. To illustrate this, the latest survey in Japan discovered that seniors who walk more than two hours a day keep their shape better than seniors who spend their time indoors.

To summarize, the choice is fundamentally between counting on professional advice or one’s own daily habits. In my opinion, professional advice can be a game changer for those who are suffering from obesity. Thus, I prefer subscribing to a gym or health club.
