    yes, few years ago we were at the gym and i was challenged to turn the treadmill up to top speed whilst standing at the sides then jump on and start sprinting.

    i tried. i failed.

    skinned me legs from above my knees to above my ankles, they werent even bleeding there was this green puss coming out of my legs and i could see my shin bones. twas very painful and my whole legs were bandaged for weeks.

    I was running on the treadmill at a fast pace and my lace got caught on the machine and I fell off, burning my legs and several other parts of my body. It was very embarrassing.

    I fainted when I stepped off the cross trainer... *dies*

    Bare in mind:
    - first visit to the gym ever... my induction like 2/3 years ago.
    - the woman who was meant to be looking after me forgot about me.
    - had no water

    But it was so embarassing... and it was that day that made me realise how unfit i was. I'm like a machine now(obviously)

    Surely that must have been a myth? :rolleyes:

    Planning is the key here."

    Well for me this happened today, I started off with dumbbell presses, 3 sets 8 reps of 60 lbs, then incline dumbbell presses, 3 sets 8 reps of 50 lbs then I went to bench and on my 8th rep on the way down, I couldn't lift the barbell back up so it slowly went down towards my throat and I couldn't ask my friend to help me because by then the barbell was on my throat (He didn't want to spot me lol) so I was basicly choking until 2 ppl ran over to lift it back up...

    I was so embarrassed I told them thanks and I left LOL :redface:

    Hopefully those 2 ppl will forget about it when they see me because it was way to embarrassing
    I would have been embarassed too lol, choking on 50lbs.

    i was at the uni gym doing some benching and the back rails on this bench were sooo much smaller than the bench i'm used to in virgin active. so needless to say i went to rest the barbell back onto the rails, but i missed them resulting in it gradually going backwards, i tried my hardest to pull it back forwards, but it was tooo hard, and resulting in gravity provailing and crashing the weights to the floor.

    someone walked over and offered to spot me. i felt shaaamed >.<

    oh and another time in virgin active, i was sprinting on the treadmill at the higest incline. i hadn't eaten that day and it was now 3pm.

    once i got off the treadmill, i started to get tunnel vision and bright sparks were going off in my eyes. my legs were going like jelly and they gave way. i would have fainted and hit the floor but my mate caught me! thank ****!

    oh no this is the best one but its my friends story...she was in the gym when the girls changing rooms had a male cleaning it so the changing rooms were switched for male and female...anyway she was in there on her own drying her hair when a bloke walks into the room. she sees him in the mirror and theyre both silent and staring at eachother. then like 10 seconds later she let out this scream like ahhhhhhh, the guy jumps a mile and runs out the room.
    it makes me laugh every time just thinking about it lol

    One time actually while benching dont know how much , but probably a bit too much, I never used those springs to keep the weights secure and well lifted it up and so on one side the weights came flying off then the other side as it was now unbalanced landed on some guys foot. he was not a happy bunny
