Tales from the Gym
So, I’m watching “The Biggest Loser Finale”, and they show clips of Tina falling off of the treadmill. It reminded me of embarrassing stories of my own from the gym.
My senior year at Purdue, I was training for a 5K and totally fell off of the treadmill.
Last year, I was doing a box jump on the bench, and definitely bit the dust.
In both instances, I think the only thing bruised was my ego. But you know what? I got right back on the treadmill. I started jumping on the bench. I think that’s the most important thing. Yes, the gym can be intimidating. Yes, you can embarrass yourself. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take that first step and join the gym. Show up! Get up off of the floor and get back to it!
Have you ever fallen? Embarrassing gym stories?
