Sports and gym classes aren't to everyone's liking. If you lack enthusiasm, agility or coordination but still need to get graded for sporting prowess, this article will explain how to fake your way through and still get an "A" on your report card.

Part 1
Faking Capture The Flag

    Choose wisely. When you choose your flag, choose the biggest size. Put the flag directly at your waist and clip it together loosely. Have your flag in plain view. This way, someone can easily grab your flag and get you out of the game.
  2. Image titled Play Capture the Flag Step 16
    When on the field, run at a normal speed, not too much to tire you out and not to slow to make it obvious that you aren't trying. When you are running, go for the best player's flag. They will realize that you are trying to steal their flag and take yours.

    Hang around the other team. Preferably in the center where you can plainly be seen and have your flag stolen easily. Go near the weak players at times so it isn't obvious.
  4. Image titled Play Capture the Flag Step 6
    Make sure you don't get anyone's flag. If you are playing horribly one minute, then capturing ten flags the next then your teacher will know something's up.

    When you are out, go to the very back of the line. Make sure you are watching the game intently to make it seem like you want to play.

Faking Field Hockey

    If you can choose your position, choose defence. You will only have to stand near the goalie and hit the puck away if it comes near you. If you cannot choose your position, then hang around the good players. They will hit the ball for you if it comes near because they know you aren't a strong player

    If playing defence, don't move from your spot and make sure that you watch the ball and maybe step closer to the side of the gym that the ball is on to make it seem like you want to get it.
  3. Image titled Choose a Hockey Stick Step 8
    Move your stick around every once in a while. Maybe hit someone else's stick "by accident" so it seems like you are trying hard.

    Look engaged. When it isn't your turn, watch the game. Don't zone out because it will be obvious that you don't want to play the game.

Part 3
Faking Warmups

  1. Image titled Increase the Number of Pushups You Can Do Step 2
    If you are doing push-ups, go all the way down and stay for the amount of time that everyone else takes to do two. Therefore when everyone is sweaty from doing thirty, you will have only done fifteen.
  2. Image titled Perform the Plank Exercise Step 2
    Bend a lot. When doing pull-ups, bend your elbows and jump. Maybe bend your legs too. This is the perfect time to use a fake injury to get out of exercising. Say you hurt your wrist or something like that. If they send you to the nurse, don't go to the nurse. Just go to the bathroom or take a walk around the school. Just make sure you have a pass to avoid unwanted detention!
  3. Image titled Exercise Step 22
    For sit-ups, only sit up halfway. Then the next time don't do one. Then go halfway, then don't do one, and so on. Do a real sit-up for the last one they call. You don't want to seem like you aren't trying.

Part 4
Faking Weight Lifting

  1. Image titled Treat Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis with Exercise Step 3
    Choose the right weights. There will probably be a selection of weights you can choose from. Choose the second to lightest one. You don't want your faking to be obvious.Then when lifting it, don't strain too much. Just lift. You don't even have to lift it all the way. Just make it seem like you are making an effort.
  2. Image titled Do Pelvic Floor Exercises Step 3
    Act puffed out. When time is up, when you drop your weight, go "phew!" Then you can wipe the "sweat" from your forehead.


  • When faking an injury or illness in gym class, stay out of class for at least fifteen minutes. That is usually how long a nurse's visit will take.


  • Don't fake injury or sickness to often. Only every once in a while. They will catch on and when you really get hurt, they won't let you go to the nurse.
