What are some embarasing moments you've had at the gym or while working out.

not knowing how to work a particular machine... one was this elliptical like one where the knees end up coming up and foorward... kind of like a cantering step... I tried it, and just could not get the feel for it... I then saw some young highschool skinny mini working out on one and asked her what it was supposed to feel like... She was going at it at a high rate of speed, her knees above her waist or level with, and she was not holding on to the rails... Well I did manage to learn.. but have yet to match that kind of endurance or skill...

This didn't happen to me, but to my dog. We were out running, and he saw a dog across the street, and he kept staring at it that he ran into a telephone pole! Ouch!
My only one was talking to a lawn duck. I thought it was real! No one saw me, though...

This isn't embarrasing but I hate, hate hate when people where perfume when working out and then they get on the treadmill right next to me.

Okay, let's see. I had a great workout just the other day:

1. I was trying to do dumbbell bench presses, thought I could up my weight a bit - not so much. I ended up dropping the weight on myself.

2. I was stepping under the barbell, preparing to do some squats - banged my head right on the bar. Note to self - walk around, not under!

And then just about a month ago I thought it would be great to try a new dance class at the gym. Well, that went badly. I tripped over my own feet and landed flat on my backside. Yup, have not been back to that class.

Then there's the time My pants split. A big hole in a not so good spot. Not fun!

As I was coming up from my backwards bend pose (think yoga folks) I let one rip. It stunk up the entire studio....

i shared this in a different thread a while ago...

my friend's mother was on the treadmill and "let one go" and felt so bad about the odor that she lit a match...well, they emptied out the area because people smelled something burning!

I thought i would be cool one day and different on the treadmill by skipping on it, and I tripped instead,which made a lot of noise, and startled the old man next to me, to the point were he almost lost his balance!!!..........I switched to walking.
