“Cheat on your girlfriend, not on your workout”

"Cheat on your boyfriend/girlfriend, not on your workout” is a workout saying that has been printed on many images.

“From our Swimming T-Shirt Last Year: Cheat on your Girlfriend, not on your Workout...” was posted on the newsgroup rec.humor on January 21, 1996. “‘Cheat on your girlfriends, not on your workout!’ wow you don’t sound like a douche” was posted on Twitter by We Stan an Intersex Morosexual Legend on August 24, 2009. “‘Cheat on your girlfriend..not on your workout’ is on my cousins shirt for his schools cross country team lol” was posted on Twitter by S K Y ☁️ on November 15, 2009.

“Cross country shirt sayings! Cheat on your boyfriend, not your workout” was posted on Twitter by c. b. on November 7, 2009. “Cheat on your boyfriend not your workout” was posted on Twitter by Alexandra Dillon on January 1, 2010.

The saying can be controversial. The global athletic footwear and apparel company Reebok posted “Cheat on your girlfriend, not on your workout” advertisements in Germany in 2012—using a saying that had already existed on T-shirts and did not originate with Reebok—but Reebok was forced to remove the ads after a backlash.

20 March 2012, Asian News International (New Delhi, India), “Reebok faces criticism for ‘cheating’ campaign”:
Washington, Mar 20 (ANI): Reebok has come under fire for its latest ad campaign, which urges athletes to cheat on their girlfriends.

“Cheat on your girlfriend, not on your workout,” says the new ad.

CheaterVille.com - a website dedicated to calling out cheaters all across the world - has sent out a letter to Reebok’s headquarters urging them to remove the campaign or a boycott will ensue.

22 March 2012, NPR (Washington, DC), “Reebok Slammed For ‘Cheat On Your Girlfriend’ Ad,” Morning Edition:
DAVID GREENE: Good morning. I’m David Greene. The sportswear company Reebok wants to make sure you’re hitting the gym. And here was their advice in a recent ad campaign. Cheat on your girlfriend, not on your workout. Yeah, that relationship advice from Reebok didn’t sit well with everyone. The posters were only up in Germany, but the backlash was global, with some even urging a boycott.

A controversial Reebok ad has been removed from display following widespread complaints.

The poster, which ran at a gym affiliated with the brand in Germany, was intended to motivate, with the slogan: ‘Cheat on your girlfriend, not on your workout.’

Instead, however, it was met with a consumer backlash, and the sportswear firm pulled the ad and acknowledged that it was ‘offensive’.
