I agree. It's like you're saying that cardio is not as important as weight lifting. On the other hand, to imply the cardio is better than weight lifting isn't good either. i think they are both important and people who do them are INFINITELY better than the people sitting at home, watching TV, and not being active AT ALL. You could say "cardio bunnies" and be derogatory, but the reality of it is that THEY are the ones who are being active (as compared to the rest of our nation of couch potatoes). They shouldn't be penalized for being active, even if their way of being active is different from other people. Just like if someone wants to ONLY lift weights, that's fine too. It's a personal choice, and they don't deserve to be called a "lifting lunkhead" either (though I personally think a mix of cardio and weightlifting would be most ideal, it's really just a personal choice in the end).
