Food and relaxing is too enjoyable to give up for the sake of vanity or having a perfect body. Tennis is fun enough to spend time getting fit.
Exactly. Though I have a perfect body, I can't bring myself to do activities like gym, running, cycling etc. Running is bad for the knees and cycling is bad for the private jewels. Gym is boring. Swimming also gets boring after a few laps. Non-sports exercise is repetitive, and the mind starts going back to work and other worries of life. Tennis is moderately taxing and mentally all-consuming.
