There are a few things that are unavoidable at the gym, like the faint musk of sweat in the air, some douche always using your machine when you want it, and ... some seriously awkward moments.
It's a good thing we love getting our sweat on so much—otherwise, the following cringe-inducing-but-inevitable gym happenings would not be worth it at all:
1. Accidentally Making Eye Contact with Someone While Using the Hip Abductor
I know I'm staring you down while my legs are spread wide open, but it's not sexual, I promise.
2. Going for a Piece of Equipment at the Same Time as Someone Else
Then having to engage in a polite battle of who should go ahead when you really just want to take it for yourself.
3. Getting Caught Scowling at a Grunter
You were just trying to judge him silently; why'd he have to catch your eye?
4. Leaving a Sweaty Butt Mark on the Bench and Someone Seeing It Before You Can Wipe It Up
1. Gross. 2. Why is your bum print so huge?!
5. Having to Pick a Wedgie on the Treadmill
You knew you should've just worn a thong.
6. Someone with Horrible B.O. Taking the Machine Next To You
On the one hand, you can't breathe, but on the other, you don't want to be super obvious by moving down a few machines.
