    Today, nice and early in the morning i was running on the tread mill and decided to take a drink break and took my feet off the treadmill.... Little did i remember that the treadmill was still on, when i stepped on it i flew back and landed on my ass on the floor.

    If I were there I'd try to make you feel a little better by pointing my finger and laughing at you. Just to get it out of the way. icon_cool.gif

    Also treadmill.

    I don't have one of those fancy iPod arm straps for running, so I usually set it in the center tray of te treadmill. Well, the more tired I get, the more my arms flail. They flailed, knocked the iPod cord, send it it straight down onto the treads.... It flew into the window behind me, right past someone on a stationary bike. I turned my head to look at it, and forgot that the cap was off my water. It spilled onto the treads and sprayed the floor.

    I then took off my clothes. The public nudity embarrassment made me feel better about the other two pains.

    I tried to use the damn Nordic Track once and didn't realize that the hip pad wasn't all the way tight to the frame. So I start flailing about on this thing and the whole damn thing that supports the hip pad and pulley system for the upper body comes off and goes crashing to the floor, sending me right along with it and a magazine that some fool had left on the holder flying up into the air. My headphones went flying as did my Walkman and what I said, even loosely translated (before I caught myself) would have made General Patton blush.

    I love a good train wreck as much as the next guy but not when I am the engineer.

    Benching by myself and the bar got stuck...had to wiggle it off of me. Good thing I didn't bench that much, could have been really hurt. Since then, I usually stick to chest exercises with free weights. I hate having a workout partner. It's just distracting and I end up socializing instead of doing anything.

    *DON'T READ IF YOU'RE EATING*

    My workout was so intense that I had to throw up. I couldn't make it to the restroom. So I just did it in a corner. The staff was nice, but I can't say I wasn't embarrassed, hahahaha..

    I was unloading the bar after squating 315 lbs. I was totally lost in thought and removed ALL the 45 lb plates from oneside only. The half-loaded bar fell to the ground and flung across the room. Luckly noone was near because it could had serious hurt someone. Also, lucky the bar only hit the rubber floor avoiding any other damage. I was so embarrassed I quickly put the bar back and left. I didn't go back to that gym for a couple weeks after that.

    I was listening to my music in the college gym (UW-Madison, land of meat-heads), and there was a guy in sweatpants and a camo tank top who had very sharp features ... one of those faces where you're not sure if he would be really cute up close or not at all (his body was super hot, though).

    So my music is blasting, and I'm walking through the machines not paying attention, looking down, and this guy and I accidentally walk right into each other. I take a sec and look up, realizing it's him, and think to myself, "CUTE."

    Then I realize ... that internal monologue ... not so internal. I'd actually said, "cute" out loud. Looking right at him. He gave me this puzzled look, and all I could do was sit down on nearest available bench, and let him pass while I stare at the floor. He kept staring at me for the rest of the workout, but I was too mortified to figure out if it was in interest or total disgust. Lol.

    Ahh, youth. If I was anywhere near as shameless as I've become since moving to California, I probably would have asked for his number. icon_wink.gif

    I once farted in the lavatory.
    It was the most mortifying thing ever. I feel terrible just typing it. I kept my head down that entire week, and kept wondering who heard it. icon_redface.gif
    I'm a fairly clumsy person in general, so the things others have said do not seem as bad.
    I'm heading out there now... and I'm doing legs... thanks.

    I go to Lifetime...and it was around 6:00 p.m. which means the place was packed, and I tripped going up the stairs...everyone in the whole gym turned around and stared. Not too embarrassing, but still.

    I was in a tank top and these small nylon running shorts, had finished my cardio and started my bench routing and had a hard on that wouldnt quit. Was about 30 feet away from where I left my towel on the treadmill and had to walk across the room with a boner.

    My list is long.. here are a couple of the top ones...

    I was about to do hanging leg lifts on the squat rack... put my arms in the straps and lift my legs up smaking the bar... smashed both my shins and knocked bar to the floor. It made a loud noise so everyone looked in time to see the blood running down my legs.

    I was in the tanning booth listening to Ipod. So with it running and the Ipod playing I could not here it thunder. So happens Desaprado came on.. and evidentally I was singing along.....quite loudly I now know. When I came out there was a crowd waiting with applause...hahahaha... (by the way I can't sing!!!)

    During a deep and heavy squat session, on my last rep, this long bit of drool snuck out and hung there. icon_redface.gif It was pretty long. My P.T. was laughing! Bloody dickhead. icon_mad.gif LOL!
    Cheers,

    Best to do it in a lavatory than on the exercise floor.

    I was doing leg presses with my trainer, and ripped out a loud one.

    The guys around me working out and my trainer were cool about it. I said excuse me and no one addressed it.

    If they had, I would have used Amy Poehler's one legged "Amber".

    "Yeah, I farted! Jealous?"

    I think we've all been there at one time or another.

    I have heard of guys crapping their shorts on leg day - which is why I always go to the bathroom first.

    Treadmill again...they are sneaky! I tripped and fell off...it must have looked pretty dramatic given the number of people who rushed over to make sure I wasn't dead.

    In yoga class yesterday it was all I could do not to laugh...this older very prim and proper looking lady ripped a big old fart in one of the postures...fortunately for her everybody played like it never happened!

    I got off the treadmill so wobbly that I ambled too far into the buffer zone of a jumproper and got lassoed.

    And I vowed never to climb on one of those things. Lesson learned.

    I was taking a dance class at Crunch after abs and before spin.
    I had injured myself snowboarding the week before and had hurt my back pretty badly. I thought I would be ok and went to class anyway having made it through abs without a spasm.

    So I'm in dance class, the move was something like a crescent kick, spin, drop, kick up, grape vine, blah, blah, blah...

    I got to the kick, spin & drop and collapsed on the floor with my back spasming in wretched pain. I was literally on my side writhing... my class is kinda competitive and the hilarious (in hindsight) part is that everyone kept dancing and sort of danced around my writhing figure... I was hip house road kill.

    I literally crawled out of class, no one in class ever mentioned it happening.... thank god.

    I was in a performance group, and for one of the entrances, we ran on with our hands straight above our heads. I was towards the back, tripped and fell, but because my hands were up, I couldn't catch myself. So I landed directly onto my knees on a tile floor. I couldn't use my legs, and because I was in the back, everyone kept dancing around me because they couldn't see me.

    I had to James Caan Misery style drag myself with my useless legs backwards to avoid getting trampled. Then I realize how funny it must look, so I'm laughing hysterically. When the people finally notice that I'm laying in a heap at the back of the stage, I'm in tears, but they can't tell it's because I'm laughing. They screamed to stop rehearsal, and kept trying to ask me what was wrong, but I couldn't talk ... sobbing, crying, snotting, uncontrollable laughter. Took them a good minute of being scared shitless before I could manage to calm down enough to tell them I wasn't seriously hurt. icon_smile.gif

    I tend to do my workouts on the weekend at the YMCA right before closing (which is 7:00 p.m.). Back in June, I had rushed in to get a shower fast since I was sweating so much. When I came out, a couple of the trainers and the manager were waiting for me, "Chris we want to go home now, do we have to help you get dressed"?

    In the case of one of them, the answer might not be what they expected.
