Why I Hate the Gym: A Personal Journey Through the World of Fitness" - A Humorous and Relatable Guide to Achieving a Healthier Lifestyle

 Let's be real: going to the gym is not everyone's cup of protein shake. In fact, some people (myself included) downright hate it. But fear not, fellow gym haters, because Chris Wilkins is here to commiserate and provide some laughs in "Why I Hate the Gym: A Personal Journey Through the World of Fitness."

In the first chapter, Wilkins takes us on a trip down memory lane as he recounts his history with exercise. He shares hilarious anecdotes about his failed attempts at lifting weights and the absurdity of gym culture. He also addresses the societal pressure to be fit and the guilt that comes with not wanting to hit the treadmill.

As we move into the second chapter, Wilkins gives us a rundown of the typical gym-goer. From the grunting muscle heads to the selfie-taking gym bunnies, he hilariously describes the cast of characters you'll encounter at your local fitness center. He also gives his take on various workout classes, from spinning to Zumba, and the awkwardness that comes with trying to follow along.

Chapter three is all about motivation (or lack thereof). Wilkins shares his tried-and-true methods for staying motivated, which include bribing himself with junk food and pretending he's in an '80s workout video. He also discusses the excuses people make for not working out, like "I don't have time" or "I just washed my hair." Trust me, you'll be laughing out loud (and feeling seen) throughout this chapter.

In the fourth chapter, Wilkins gets a little more serious as he delves into the science behind exercise. But fear not, because he still manages to make you chuckle with his witty commentary on the benefits of cardio and strength training. He also shares his experience with the infamous "runner's high" and how it's not quite as life-changing as some would have you believe.

As we near the end of the book, Wilkins focuses on nutrition in chapter five. He provides some practical advice on healthy eating (like "put down the pizza slice") and shares his own struggles with giving up sugar. He also takes a look at popular diets, like veganism and the Mediterranean diet, with his trademark humor and relatability.

The final chapter is all about reflection and future goals. Wilkins shares his own personal journey towards a healthier lifestyle and how he's still a work in progress. He encourages readers to find what works for them and not to beat themselves up over slip-ups.

In conclusion, "Why I Hate the Gym" is a hilarious and relatable guide to achieving a healthier lifestyle. Whether you're a gym hater or just looking for some laughs, this book has got you covered. So put down the dumbbells and pick up a copy - your abs (and your funny bone) will thank you.

The Federal Court this week delivered their judgement on  Australian Competition and Consumer Commission v Service Seeking Pty Ltd  [2020] FCA 1040 going all out by handing out whopping fines, legal costs orders and ordering Service Seeking Pty Ltd to establish a, undoubtedly expensive, compliance system to be monitored by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).  What did they do that was so bad?  According to the Federal Court of Australia, they created a system in which businesses could write their own customer reviews.  With a rating system less defined than what constitutes a 5-star rating in an Uber trip, businesses could write a review, assign a star rating and send it off to their customer for approval. If the customer didn’t respond or even open the email containing the review, then the review was automatically published online after a set period. By estimates of the Court, approximately 80% of the reviews published on the website for the period that this sch

Misappropriation of likeness, it's in the game

Misappropriation of likeness, it's in the game With the recent announcement that EA will be venturing back into the world of college sports for one of their upcoming games. It is essential to look at the reasons for its (over a decade-long) hiatus from making college sports games. Several high-profile cases took down a very profitable area of sports gaming almost ten years ago, over a simple but crucial element to the games, the players.  Privacy and personality laws in the United States is an emerging area of law founded on the basis that is based in tort law. It deals with the ideas that a person has rights: 1. To be left alone; 2. To not have public disclosure of private facts; 3. To not be depicted in a false light; and 4. To not have your name and likeness misappropriated.  On these critical tenets, personality laws have become increasingly more prevalent as, due to advances in technologies, it is becoming easier for one's likeness to be copied and distributed.  Th

You can take the bread company out of Hawaii, but you can't take Hawaii out of the bread company.

You can take the bread company out of Hawaii, but you can't take Hawaii out of the bread company. What do you do when your favourite company that makes your favourite type of bread makes it bread outside of your favourite state? You take them to court, or at least that is what one man has done.  A man in New York has filed a class action against bread maker, King's Hawaiian over the sweet rolls alleging that the company misled him into believing that the rolls are actually made in Hawaii. Robert Galinsky is pursuing a class-action lawsuit against the company claiming unjust enrichment, negligent misrepresentation, and fraud. King's Hawaiian packaging Galinsky claims that Hawaiian Rolls by itself "does not denote a roll made in Hawaii any more than a 'Moon Pie' can claim to have been baked on the moon." But the company using the original location of its factory, 'Hilo, Hawaii' in its packaging is misleading to customers.  If Galinsky can convince th
