Violent protests and racially charged riots are breaking out across the United States, and some Americans have found a means of using this chaos to their advantage. A decent percentage of the protestors, both black and white, have admitted they only participate in the riots to get some exercise.
“It just works for me,” says Carla Newton, one of the protestors in Ferguson. “I never have time to get to the gym, so instead I just run home from work, join a mob and toss a few bricks through some windows. It’s a really invigorating workout.”
The protests have spread to Los Angeles and have caught on quickly due to the city’s prominent fitness crowd. The true meaning of the protests, however, is lost on many of the new rioters.
“I’d be lying if I said I knew what the start of all this was,” says Ramon McNeil, a Los Angeles native who takes part in the riots whenever he can. “All I know is that flipping a car over with your buddies is a lot cheaper and a lot more fun than lifting weights at a gym or workout center.”
Many Americans who are passionate about the racial discrimination and police brutality issues are disgusted by the participation of America’s fitness nuts. In an effort to disassociate from the health crowd, some of the original protestors have stopped their violent demonstrations and begun practicing more peaceful ones. Authorities have caught onto this and have been instructed to only pacify protestors wearing sweatbands and gym shorts.
