60 Times people shared sights from the gym that they couldn’t unsee

Starting a workout regimen can be intimidating. Whether you’re trying to lose weight or just improve your health, it’s a lot of work. You walk into the gym on the first day and have no idea what you’re even doing. All those machines are unfamiliar and everyone seems to be in better shape than you.

But hey, we’ve all been there. No one’s born knowing all the ins and outs of fitness equipment. That’s why every gym has personal trainers, not to mention lots of people who are more than happy to give a newcomer some pointers.

And as much as it might make you feel uncomfortable to ask for help, it’s much better than trying to figure things out yourself. Guessing your way through those machines can break them or cause you serious injury. Perhaps even worse…it’ll make you look ridiculous.

So, stay safe out there. Always use a spotter, dress appropriately, and ask for assistance when you need it. And — I can’t believe this needs to be said — don’t try to stand on a yoga ball while lifting weights, okay? Here are 60 people who caught our attention at the gym for all the wrong reasons.

1. Look deep into my eyes…

If you had a personal trainer walk up to you for a session and they were wearing this unitard, what would you think? I’d either be very afraid or want them to be my new best friend.

2. He’s not quite ready

This is most definitely a fail. Food isn’t even allowed in most gyms, and those exercise machines aren’t personal couches. On the other hand, I have to say I kind of get it.
