Thanks to everyone who left comments in my LUNA bar giveaway. I asked you to tell your most embarrasing gym story, and you did not disappoint. You really outdid yourself.
Though all of your stories were equally pathetic and hilarious, I managed to pick two winners. In the end, it was Lea’s tale of leaving the gym naked and Melissa’s sad saga of requiring oxygen from the gym security guard that earned a case of LUNA bars. Here, in their own words:
Winner #1 -
There was this one time when I took a cardio kickboxing class right after work and I'd forgotten my shoes. The teacher suggested I just take the class barefoot. I didn't want to wuss out so I did. That hurt for days. And then this other time, I took a spin class at 6:30 am, without having any breakfast. Who can eat that early? I certainly couldn't. Well, I almost passed out, had to be practically carried to the gym office, and was given oxygen by the security guard (oh, yes, this was at work.). I tore the muscles in both quads, had to call in sick to work because I couldn't walk for a few days, and cancelled a trip. That was at least 7 years ago and I've only taken spin class 2x since. (I've improved my exercise skills since then.)- Melissa
Winner #2 -
I don't know if I should even share this but awhile back I went to the gym early in the morning (and I bring a bag and shower then go straight to work) and did my typical run on the treadmill and lifted a bit, etc. I put my flip flops on (of course) and took a quick shower only to realize that I forgot the hanger that had my work outfit on it. So I'm standing in the locker room with just my underwear on deciding if I put back on my sweaty disgusting workout clothes or if I have any other options. Instead I simply put on my long winter coat, zipped it up real tight, put my sneakers back on, walked out and prayed for no sudden gusts of wind. Then I proceeded to go back to my house to get my original outfit.
