    Have you guys ever had a completely, 100% awkward gym moment? For example, tonight I was getting on a weight machine, I was adjusting the seat, thinking I locked it in place, and BOOM. The damn thing went down and I went with it. lol. Some dude came over to make sure I was alright, which, I got up at the speed of light due to being incredibly embarrassed. lol.

    Haha yea, I'm fairly new when it comes to gyms so i often times find myself staring dumbly at machines. One time i was using a treadmill, which was oddly very sophisticated. Long story short it started going really fast and I couldn't stop it and flew off the back of it. Needless to say i powered walked my ass outta there as fast as i could.

    Lately I have been more interested in swimming and about a month ago I was near the pool and my friend and I were running to get in the lane first. Well, I forgot about the rule about not running near the pool. I slipped and fell. It was like watching a whale rolling down a hill. Not only did I fall but I also slid and I slid right into the wall. To top this all off, the pool area wasn't empty. One of the trainers still makes fun of me for it! I tend to not go to that location when I don't have to!

    Someone stole my street clothes from my gym locker in junior high. After showering I had to change back into my gym clothes. Then I complained to the principal and went home. I was not about to spend the rest of the day in my dirty gym clothes.

    I used to work nights and would drive up to WeHo in the afternoon (before rush hour) and workout in the 24hour WeHo while my boyfriend-at-the-time was finishing his day at work. He used to tease me that that gym was a bathhouse.
    Anyways after my workout, I'd relax in the steam room or the hot tub. Everyone at that gym would use the hot tub and the steam room nude and the majority of them were fluffing themselves. I was embarrassed that I was at a reputable gym surrounded by a bunch of guys playing with themselves.

    I was wearing a pair of cut-off sweat pants without any underwear one Sunday morning and the strings suddenly unraveled while I was doing squats. Imagine the horror!

    After sporting a boner in spandex at a "straight" gym while groping some random guy's biceps (consensual), it's impossible to become embarrassed anymore.

    Once while using the preacher curl machine, I had adjusted the height of the seat and thought it was pretty well fixed. But it wasn't and as soon as I sat down it went with me on it. Now I make sure to push it as hard as I can to make sure it is held properly before I sit on it.

    Not really embarrassing so much as showing anyone can F* up.

    I was getting acquainted with Nautilus equipment many many years ago and the sexy guy who worked there was showing me how to use them.
    He sat me down on this
    1095_1_large.jpg and didn't check the weight the previous guy had on. It was about 180.
    So he pulls the pin that keeps the leg parts together..and WHAM!! My legs are spread out faster than a New Yorker blows the horn after a light turns green!

    The good part? When he came into the locker room to apologize again and gave me a inner-thigh massage..which lead to 'other' things...

    Just two for me.

    1) Being in an empty gym while on the leg press and while I was pushing the weight back up, I farted and it made a really loud noise.

    2) I'll admit it- when I was spotting some guy, I nearly got a boner. Only time that has ever happened to me.

    That shouldn't be embarrasing. I remember from the pics you used to have public that you look like you've been around a gym, so it would be most logical to just laugh about the seat incident and keep right on going.

    I was walking around the track the other day, and my gay friend who was running around flew by me and gave me a HUGE smack on the ass! I felt like it echoed lol. But yeah, as some others have said, many encounters with my gay friends are pretty funny.

    I don't think I have had any really embrassing moments in the gym, yet. *knocks on wood

    I work in a gym and the funniest thing I see is probably people on machines backwards or incorrectly.

    Slipped and fell while doing squats in the smith machine and got pinned under the weight. Just layed there pinned for a while until I caught my breath and was able to squeeze out from under it.

    okay, it wasnt me, but one of my buddies has his own little gym in his basement with almost everything, and i got to sit around and lend emotional support while his attractive female trainer (whom he was madly attracted to) decided it was time to take his workout further.
    Well, it was smith machine time, and he was at the point of audible struggling and he pushed himself WAY too hard...

    end of the story, he pushes out a giant fart with her standing behind him and shits his pants just a little, and due to the embarasment, peed himself a little bit. He was in baggy shorts, but luckily his undies had an inseam.



    She trained him for 2 more agonizing months, and they have been dating for 6. He plans to marry her.

    [edit] once he graduates from college. they have are 4 years age dif. shes young but a damn good trainer

    I go to a co-ed steam room. But to get to it you must walk past the co-ed (also) swimming pool. One day , a new guy came into the steam room, and since there were only guys in it, unknowingly he went nakid as a jay bird, which was ok .....until he left and keep walking nude past the swimming pool which had both genders in it. icon_lol.gif

    Oh God. After these tame stories, I'm embarrassed to tell mine. Lol.

    Two of them in college, both with the same cause: loud music in the headphones tends to make me forget to keep my monologue internal.

    1. There was a guy at the gym who was lifting, and although I could tell he had a great body, he had those severe features that could be either gorgous or kind of off-putting up close. So I kept checking him out, trying to figure out if he was cute or not. About 20 minutes later, I'm walking down one of the aisles, futzing with my (dare I say it?) WALKMAN (anyone under 23, just google it) and practically run right into this guy. I look up … we lock eyes … "cute." Then I realize I'd actually said it ... out loud … while looking directly at him … about a foot away from his face. Then I'm sure my face twisted into a mix of shock and horror, I sat down on the bench right next to me, and looked at the floor while he passed. He kept looking back at me, but I was too mortified to find out if he was interested or just freaked out. Lol.

    2. I love running. I love singing. I love dancing. If a song I love comes on while I'm running, I kind of put them all together. I'm sure to everyone on the indoor track, it's a bizarre spectacle, but … considering I used to run a 4:15 mile … I could give a crap what they thought. I was having fun, dammit. So, after one of my sing/dance/runs, I go to stretch out. At this point I was damn flexible, so was in the full splits with my elbows down to the floor. This weird guy comes past with the GIRLIEST run I've ever seen … elbows pinned to his sides, wrists flopping around … and he kind of scoffs at me. I figured I just was imagining things, and kept stretching. Lap 2, he does the same thing. Finally, when he comes around for lap 3, I meant to say under my breath, "YOU RUN LIKE A GIRL." Apparently I said it really loudly, because the 10 people around me started laughing REALLY hard, he got this super embarrassed look on his face, and instead of looping around the track, he just kept running right through the front doors. Must've been even more embarrassing coming from someone in a full split. :-P

    3. My last story was less than a month ago. All the benches were taken, so I was doing chest press with dumbbells on an exercise ball. I was on my heaviest set, and instead of using my knees to prop up the weights one at a time, I did them both pretty rapidly … and all my weight went backward … on a exercise ball. So I started flipping backward, and noticed there was a preacher curl bar directly behind me. Shit. So I went into a handstand and did half a cartwheel to the side to avoid hitting it. I didn't even KNOW I was capable of that much coordination. I go to stand up, and not one single person was even looking at me. I was a little annoyed, actually. I wanted credit for my acrobatics. Or at least a good laugh. Oh well. I was amused. icon_wink.gif

    I was upstairs in the loft of the gym at Indiana State Univ. and heard the girl at the desk asking a few guys in the gym to look upstairs. One-by-one the four very good-looking guys looked up at me, then said "yeah" and smiled. After the fourth guy, I got PISSED and gave up on my workout. I assumed they were making fun of me for doing something wrong, or not being "as built" as the other guys.

    As I walked past the front desk, the girl said "hey, wait, I have to ask you something". I turned around, looking pissed. She then said "We were wondering..." I interrupted her and said "what, if this is my first time lifting?". She just laughed and said "noooo, we were wondering if you are related to Payton Manning?"

    I just laughed it off, I have been asked about a dozen times if I'm related, but I have no idea why.
