Mortifying exercise moments

ElectrumElectrum Posts: 62Registered Users
So... I've just begun to try to get in shape this fall and my mode of working out has been yoga. I have to say, I really like it. Even when my forehead is sweaty and my hamstrings feel like they might just detach themselves from my legs.
There is, however, one minor, off-putting detail. Each time I practice my shoulder stands, I queef! It's so embarassing, and I don't know how to stop. :sad11: I guess I'm just starting this post as a place to commiserate and share all the uncomfortable moments that happen to us as we try to exercise. *sigh*

    well at the apartment complex I used to live in, they had a gym and the gym had cameras and in the front office you could see the cameras and who was at the gym. Well one day I was on the treadmill and ....I flew directly off, I hope to this day that whoever was working (because they're all students at my school) all had their backs turned to the cameras when it happened. GEEZ.

    Oh, sorry! Really - I can understand how you feel. That's only happened to me during sex which was embarrassing enough. However, anyone who can do a shoulder stand deserves applause, regardless. I'm not even sure what a shoulder stand is! (but it sounds really hard to do).

    Once when I was in an aerobics class I must have eaten beans at lunch earlier, and I suddenly farted something awful. I was in the front row right near the instructor and she immediately danced away from me.
    I was mortified because it smelled. It was years ago and I'm still embarrassed even writing this, but I wanted to commiserate.

    Turtles, this happened to me once also, but fortunately, there wasn't anyone around. I fell on my A$$ but wasn't hurt. I never heard of a gym with cameras! That's intimidating.

    Funny post! I'm enrolled in a yoga teacher training course and we had a discussion on how to handle certain situations in a class. One of those situations was "inadvertent bodily noises". We're supposed to just ignore them. So, if we had to be taught about it, it obviously happens with some frequency!! And a few days after that lesson, I was taking a class where there seemed to be an ongoing chorus of those bodily noises! Pretty funny, really. And then some guy started snoring during savasana. We ignored that, too.

    CP, that's hilarious!!! The dancing away part... But also mortifying.

    LMAO - let's just say that it's called "Wind Removing Pose" for a reason :occasion5:

    Anyway, I'm in yoga class and we go to do triangle pose. Just as I'm getting set and really working on getting my shoulders open, my yoga mat rips - loudly. Everyone turns to look because of the noise. One foot is sliding since its still on part of my yoga mat and now I'm flailing around. Next thing I know, my pants rip too and I fall over.

    Yep, happened to me too. In the middle of a 24 hour fitness though. With (of course) a really muscled studly dude on the stairmaster next to me.

    I never went back. lol

    This is a small thing, but it embarrassed me. I just got an mp3 player that I listen to at the gym. Apparently when I have headphones in my ears, I talk really loud. I was at the gym with my husband, stretching, and I said something to him. These other guys turned around and looked my way while I was doing this silly stretch. DH told me I was practically shouting. :oops:

    LOL! Try engaging your mula bandha (pelvic muscles) BEFORE going into an inversion (or a one-legged down dog) to keep out the air.

    It's pretty normal, though, in yoga class to hear all kinds of bodily sounds. I was teaching a class with a new husband & wife couple one morning. The wife accidentally farted and instead of just ignoring it, the husband jumped up and asked (very loudly) "Are you o.k.?" The woman was mortified and they never came back. I felt so bad for her. The class would have thought nothing of it if he hadn't brought it to everyone's attention.

    Eh, it happens.
    I was on the eliptical and let loose a SBD fart. A guy was on a treadmill near me and he stopped dead in his tracks when the smell hit him. :pottytrain1: He ended up falling and went flying. He wasn't hurt. :laughing8:

    I try to get on the treadmills or elipticals that are far away from people. And it near fails that someone will get next to me to start a conversation but they never stay long....:laughing9:
