Fitness classes often function like middle school cafeterias. They are cliquey, and they usually involve a little gossip at one individual’s expense — especially if said individual does something during class to embarrass themselves. In fact, there are quite a few ways you can humiliate yourself in the middle of a group workout — whether you notice you are doing it or not!
Not sure if your fellow classmates are snickering at your expense? Here are, in no particular order, the ways people completely embarrass themselves in fitness classes.
Of all the ways you can humiliate yourself in a fitness class, this is probably the most unavoidable. That being said, is there anything more embarrassing than letting one rip in the middle of a full classroom? This unfortunate incident occurs because doing exercises where you are squeezing your core muscles are probably also pushing on your colon, Women’s Health Magazine explains. So if you’re doing an aerobics class, spin class, what have you … you are at risk of this mortification.
Luckily, there is a way to save yourself from this form of fitness class humiliation. Avoid gas-producing foods ahead of any workout, and carbonated beverages.
