Our favorite TV show characters tell it like it is

Exercise is good for you, everyone knows that. But just because we know it does the body good, doesn’t mean it’s an easy thing to do every day… or even a few times a week. Activities like surfing the web, watching Netflix and eating yummy snacks all require much less effort and, unlike exercise which usually involves some form of slight suffering, provide instant gratification.
