Describe an article about health that you have read in a magazine or on the internet
You should say:
What it was about
Where you read it
Why you read it
And explain how you felt about it
1 Do you think people are healthier now than in the past?
2 How can you tell whether a website is reliable or not?
3 What kind of things can the government do to improve health education, awareness and improve the health of the nation in general?
4 What kind of exercise or physical education do students do in school?
I read an article about health fairly recently actually. It was all about going to the gym. I paid particular attention to it because I am thinking of starting to go to the gym. The article was all about different types of training that you can do in the gym, to develop different muscles in the body as well as get good cardiovascular exercise for the heart and blood system. I was sort of interested in what it had to say because I don't really know what to do in a gym, or what the best exercise regimen is to suit my needs. I don't really want to develop very strong muscles or anything like that, but I do want to get more fit, more healthy, and develop some strength in my arms and legs. Anyway, I talked about the article I read with a friend of mine, whose English name is Troy. He worked for many years in a gym as a personal trainer, and he said that if you are serious about getting fit and healthy it's a good idea to get a personal trainer. He also explained that a personal trainer is also a motivator – he or she can help you keep to your routine, push you harder when you need to be motivated, and advise you how best to use the different machines and equipment in the gym so that you don't injure yourself but exercise your body in the best, most effective way possible. So, I thought that the article was fairly useful, but frankly I think that I got better and more useful advice from my friend Troy. Perhaps I could say that the article gave me a good reason to talk to Troy…it inspired me to talk to Troy… So that was the real benefit of my having read this article, actually.
