You could become a farmer. For some reason those guys never even go to the gym.

Horseshoes are a net loss (or gain) for me.  At 210Cal/Hr - 360 beer Cal/Hr means I am getting 150 extra calories.

/Plus, it is super boring.

Biking and gardening.  Don't drive everywhere and tend a garden.  You don't need a gym after that.

Or you could get rid of electricity. I've never seen a fat Amish person, and they eat some of the richest, fattest food around.

Walking, too.

Yep. These are all good. See also: tilling land, pitching compost, mucking stalls, maintaining areas that can't be mowed (weed eater or machete), feeding and grooming animals, and hoeing (not the kind that happens in town or the city ;)

These are good but, if you have water to canoe and paddleboard in wouldn't swimming be easier, more effective and cheaper?

I do all of the things you mentioned (yes, I have a scythe). Fark gyms; people could buy a plot of land with their gym fees and have something permanent to show for it.

Saw on social media someone had posted a video of a woman using a scythe.  She was quite good at it.  Very even cuts, smoothly done.  "They" called it 'aerobic exercise'.  I replied that it was not aerobic, but quite muscle building.  AND callous building.  In retrospect, I'd even bet she had used a whetstone to sharpen that scythe, even more good exercise.
Also not list - hand pumping well water.  IF you've advanced beyond pail-on-rope technique.
And, on the excretory side of things, hauling the outhouse buckets to the fields to Recycle all them good nutrients.

The entire point of going to the gym is to be seen going to the gym, to be able to tell your friends you go to the gym, to shop for clothes in which to go to the gym, to signal that you have the money to pay the Guatemalan to mow your lawn while you pay to go to the gym, and so forth.

This is much more impressive (to idiots) than being seen pushing your mower back and forth in your ratty-ass T-shirt and shorts..
