SAMPLE OUTLINE FOR A PERSUASIVE SPEECH - By Tom Wingard
Are you getting a bit tired of that three inch spare tire around your waist?
Are you becoming increasingly lazy, fat?
I'd like to show you that we're all in need of exercise. Now is the time to get
started so that we can enjoy the health and psychological benefits the rest of our lives.
I'm assuming that none of you will argue that exercise is harmful. You'll agree
that exercise is beneficial. However, I'm not so sure all of us are actually exercising. I'd like to tell
you, then, not how to exercise, but to persuade you to go out and get some exercise.
(First, I'd like to tell you why I'm so concerned about our inactivity.)
Lack of exercise is harmful to our health.
Cardiovascular disease, the nation's leading cause of death, is caused by inactivity.
