Good points. I'm in decent shape (I think), but I've always used the excuse to go to games to get physical excersie. "Honey, I have to go this weekend because of this big game, its fun and a lot of running, its good for me...".
Now though my gf stopped buying it and I had to join the gym (she is all about "staying fit" thing).
It all comes down to how serious are you about airsoft AND your health. While buying all the cool guns and gear, dont you want to look "good" with all those goodies? Get in shape! Its good for the game and most importantly its good for YOU!
