Anomanomanom: “My most unpleasant gym experience was I’m the locker room, I picked my towel and dried my face, then only realised I’d picked the towel up of the guy next to me who no more than 30 seconds ago was drying his nether regions. It was most unpleasant.”
Emma: “My most unpleasant gym experience involved 60 minutes on the cross trainer in grey tracksuit bottoms.Boring, soul destroying and left me with a not so discreet sweat patch around my nether regions, and a red face that was a combination of embarrassment and being completely unfit!”
Skeptik: “Personally witnessing the reason Ben Dunne withdrew the hairdryers in the changing room, men drying their undercarriage with them. Flapping like the jowls of Bassett Hounds in a gale, they were…”
Seany_delight: “The kill chord (rope that stops the machine dead) on the thread mill getting caught on a pair of shorts, and running full speed into the control panelly bit. Managed to hit my knackers so hard I had to leave the gym. The worst part was it was during my assessment and I must now make eye contact with the instructor who could barely hold in his laughter every time I go back…”
Becca: “My most unpleasant gym experience involved getting a present of 6 personal trainer sessions for Christmas a few years back. We were doing a core session, I was told to lie on my back and pass a gym ball from my feet to my hands, and needless to say the excesses of the Christmas period caught up on me and a little bit of flatulence popped out. I pretended it didn’t happen, she never said anything, but Rudolph would have been envious of how red my face went.”
Sidewinder: “Silently competing with the only other person using the rowing machines, about four machines down, absolutely killing myself trying to keep pace and stay on longer than him. Finally giving up and moving to the treadmill and noticing in a mirror that the other person was Ronan O’Gara, that he had known exactly what I was doing and that he was laughing his ass off.”
JohnO: “I was at a MMA gym in the changing room surrounded by heavily muscled bald dudes with neck tattoos and overly large muscles. Some were wrapping their hands for fighting, some were icing injuries sustained while fighting. All were in various states of undress. Beside me someone had left their bag with their mobile phone it. They got a text message and their “hilarious” text message tone was a very low, almost shy, wolf whistle. Well when it went off every guy in the changing room glared at me assuming I’d whistled at them. I said “It looks like someone got a text message” and gestured to the bag. But not one, not one, laughed or smiled or anything. They just glared at me for an extra second or two and then went back to dressing/undressing.”
MickG: “My most unpleasant gym experience involved a new weight gain supplement which did not agree with me and a deadlift. To cut to the chase, I was deadlifting and shat myself. It was audible but not visible thanks to some tight boxer shorts and navy coloured tracksuit pants. It was 7am so not too busy but 2 lads definitely noticed the sound and my prompt exit.”
ams: “Witnessing pubes being dried with the communal hairdryer in the ladies. No wonder I quit going.”
Haggis: “Doing some floor presses towards the end of a workout, when streams of sweat were running off the face of the guy who was spotting me on the presses. The sweat ran straight off his nose and chin and into my open mouth when I exhaled at the top of the first rep…. My spotter grinned, then laughed, and said, “I’m in you now, you’ve got my DNA in you”….Must have been a good 50 mls at least.. That was several weeks ago and I’m still gagging…”
