This morning while halfassing my lifting, I watched a woman fall off a treadmill, stand up, and then bend over and her yoga pants ripped apart at the ass seem.

She turned around to look in my direction, I was quickly back to lifting and acting  like  I hadn't  seen anything.

Had to share, I'm still laughing inside.

I saw a guy in jeans and Cowboy boots load up the hack Squat machine with plates . As soon as he released the safety bar he immediately was folded in half and stuck there. People came running to help but we were laughing so hard we didn't .

There was a guy at my gym that every day he would dress like he was Hulk Hogan.  He had the wrist bands, head band and dressed in yellow and red.  None of his clothes said Hulk Hogan or anything it was just Hogan style.  He was also like 60 which made it seem weirder.  He would go every day around the same time and that was his uniform.  He also only walked on the treadmills and did no other exercise, he was pretty fat for a daily gym goer.

I love these threads

Used to work out at a Golds in a really blue collar neighborhood. Would see guys wearing jeans and workboots to the gym from time to time. 

One day I am in there lifting and I look over and there’s a guy in jeans, work boots and an old Gap style sweater vest (the ones from the 90s that had argyle patterns on them) on one of the cable machines.

Out of shape, middle aged dude that didn't look like he belonged in the gym running on the treadmill in socks, because he didn't own sneakers (apparently)

It caused his feet to blister and bleed, and got blood all over the treamill.

The owners kicked him out.

Just incredible assholes or gays... I work out at home now and get so much more done 

once I saw a sign taped to the wall of a 24 hr fitness in San Diego that said they were temporarily removing the curl bars because people weren’t reracking them

Tommy Wiseau would come in every night and only do the crunch machine for like an hour. People would regularly hound him to say lines from the room. Felt bad for the guy.

John Travolta would also come in at midnight to pick up young dudes, before his massage scandal.

my fam from out of town came with me to my gym when they were visiting, I had gone to the locker room to take a leak and get my airpods

in the meantime, my cousin was trying to give workout tips to a former ifbb pro competitor on bodybuilding, she was all hoodied up so I guess he could not tell she was more brollic than him

when I got back I saw what was going on and facepalmed and told him afterwards

Saw a guy load up about 405 on squat rack, take weight off rack and quickly drop to the stops The amazing part is he didn’t give up and kept pushing right up to the point he craped his pants. He gets out from under the rack and walks around like nothing happened even though he has some of the runny shit on the back of his legs. After about 5 minutes he heads back to the locker room then comes back out and finished workout (assuming he cleaned out his pants / diaper). That guy was dedicated

There's a guy at my gym that is there every day and does the same exact machine exercises, never anything different. He wears jeans, work boots, a sleeveless t-shirt and workout gloves. He is definitely dedicated but in the 3 years I've seen him he has never changed up the outfit, exercises or even the weight used.

Last week there was a skinny dude trapped under the bar bell benching, he couldn't get it off him. Poor lad.

There was a period of 3 weeks in a row, a few years back, when I hit the gym Sunday afternoon around 3. In general that's a good time to go, as it's almost empty.

 

The crazy thing, is that each time I went on Sunday, at that time, someone had literally shit their pants and then left a trail of human shit through the gym and to the men's room.

 

The same poor kid who worked there was cleaning it up each time. He probably took that job so he could get some eye candy, and instead ended up scrubbing poop off the floor.

I was waiting for a description of her gash hanging out. I was disappointed at the conclusion of your story.
