Do reading and working out count as extracurricular activities?Answered
I go to the gym several times a week and read every day. Does that count as an extracurricular activity?
no - that’s a hobby. unless you can turn it into something that has substance, like a blog/book club/podcast etc, it doesn’t count as an EC.
Going to the gym is a very admirable thing, but it cannot be an extracurricular activity. You need to quantify the activity. Do you compete? Have you reached a milestone or earned an achievement? Those would show that you're not just there walking on the treadmill.
