Why do so many people hate working out?

Any theories? I'm sure that if you're on these boards, you love it. You love the feelings it gives you when you do it and the satisfaction you get when you see results. Why is it that so many people are the complete opposite? My personal theory: They don't know how to do it correctly. I...
