Embarrassing Gym Moments
We are all hardcore and badass when it comes to our workouts, OBVIOUSLY. But you know you sometimes have those moments during a workout where something just goes tits up and you have to laugh at yourself? Yeah, I thought it’d be fun to take a little time out today to acknowledge that while yeah, we’ll beat basically anyone in a press up competition, we still know how to have a good laugh in our workouts.
Today, I am opening up the floor to you to share your stories – your embarrassing gym/workout stories. But I shall not get out of it – oh no, I shall put myself on the line too. So here goes:
My most embarrassing gym moment was last summer. I was doing 7am classes in a gym a few miles down the road. I’d jump out of bed, put my kit on, grab a quick bite to eat and head out the door to catch the tube. My other half is not an early bird so I’m always conscious of not waking him up. This particular day, my alarm went off, I got out of bed, didn’t put the light on as I didn’t wanna wake my fella. I put my gym kit on, which I’d laid out on the bed the night before and headed downstairs. I sleepily ate some breakfast and headed out the door. Walked to the station, waited for the tube, got on it, got off it, walked to the gym at the other end, went to drop my bag in the changing rooms to realise….I had my entire outfit on inside out. MORTIFICATION! It wouldn’t have been quite so bad if I wasn’t wearing the kind of shorts that have the built in knickers in them. Yeah, not a good look at all. No wonder I was getting strange looks throughout the journey.
Note to self: get dressed with lights on.
So now, over to you: what has been your most embarrassing gym/workout moment. Feel free to comment anonymously if you must.
