Making Eye Contact

This is for sure one of the most awkward moments every girl has endured at least once at the gym. Accidentally making eye contact with someone while using the hip abductor is not something you want to happen too frequently. Even though you are staring at someone while your legs are spread wide open, you must admit that it’s not a sexual thing and you wouldn’t want the other person to misinterpret this gesture.


Going for a Piece of Equipment

Another awkward gym moment that every girl has to endure is when you go for a piece of equipment at the same time with someone else. Then you just have to engage in this polite battle of who should use that machine first, even though you want to take it for yourself.


Leaving a Sweaty Butt Mark on the Bench

This happened to me more than once and it still makes me feel uncomfortable every time I think about it. In my opinion, there is nothing more awkward than leaving a sweaty butt mark on the bench and someone seeing it before you get a change to wipe it up.


Having to Pick a Wedgie on the Treadmill

Well, I’m sure a lot of girls wear thongs when they go to the gym even if they shouldn’t do so. Even though it may feel comfortable in the beginning, you will realize that it was a bad decision when you hit the treadmill.


Someone with Terrible Body Odor Taking the Machine Next to You

Well, what could be more awkward than that? It happened to me and my friends a lot and the thing is that you have to act like everything is fine so you wouldn’t hurt that person’s feelings. On the one hand, you can’t breathe but on the other hand, you don’t want to make them feel bad.


Spilling Water on Yourself

Spilling water on yourself when you try to take a gulp on the treadmill is one of those awkward gym moments every girl has endured. Just make sure you don’t drop your water bottle, because things like these happen to everyone so it shouldn’t be such a big deal.


Running into Someone You Know

Do you like running into people you know when you are at the gym? Most girls don’t really want to do that, especially since they are all sweaty and tired and all they want to do is take a shower and freshen up a bit.

There are a lot of awkward things that can happened to you when you are at the gym. I just mentioned a few in this little article but I’m sure that there are a lot more I could add to this list.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I've had 2, 3, 4, and 6 happen to me. Not the rest.

9. Starting at a new gym without realizing the unwritten rules of the locker room! (In some, people walk around naked, no problem. Others? Expect horrified and angry looks if you change into a sports bra outside a bathroom stall).

Maybe I'm a bad person but #5 isn't awkward to me really at all. If the person next to me in the gym has really bad bo, I'll tell them about it so they can do something about it. I know a few people who before it was mentioned to them, they had no idea and as a result never wore deodorant. Sweating is fine, you're in a gym, that's allowed, but I shouldn't have to smell you too.

8. The man who follows you around the gym to always do push ups in front of you.
