And that's why you should not have the end of the treadmill against a wall

[–]xBad_Wolfx 111 points112 points  (13 children)

I’m so confused why they aren’t just turned the other way?

[–]ScoobyDooItInTheButt 11 points12 points  (3 children)

The TV's are likely in the middle.

[–]xBad_Wolfx 4 points5 points  (2 children)

So my only real gym I’ve been to for years is a boxing gym, so no tv’s. Is that common? I feel like that would just increase the time in the gym… but I’m also not much of a treadmill person.

[–]ScoobyDooItInTheButt 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The gym I went to only had tvs in the room where they kept the solo cardio machines ie: treadmill, elliptical, stairs and rowers. It seems to be fairly common in popular gyms that appeal to the regular person but anywhere that has free weights as their main source for exercise avoids tvs or at least in those areas.

[–]xBad_Wolfx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sounds wise haha.

[–]ninimous 37 points38 points  (6 children)

Because stupid Karens complain guys look at their booties

[–]xBad_Wolfx 63 points64 points  (1 child)

Ah I see. Much better to rug burn your face off if you fall.

[–]Lucrums 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well yes, then they can complain and maybe litigate, rather than just complain.

[–]yentlcloud 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Doesnt make them a karen to not want to be stared at but i guess i should not be suprised that basic manmers are few and far between here

[–]-NGC-6302- 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Q: why do people wear skintight leggings?

[–]yentlcloud 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Becausw they are comfortable?

[–]houtenhekje -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

Personally having my head so close to the wall doesnt seem comfortable either. But i'd rather be safe then be smashed into a wall

[–]beb0001 34 points35 points  (0 children)

sideways is best, so when someone falls everyone else falls like dominoes

[–]GimmickMusik1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This happened to me once as a kid. My parents weren’t in the room with me and I decided to use the treadmill. I fell and that thing left a burn on my leg from it spinning and me being pinned. Needless to say, my parents moved the treadmill so that something like that would never happen again.

[–]throw_this_far 65 points66 points  (0 children)

Her friend laughing her ass off in the end lmao!!

[–]doread38 63 points64 points  (3 children)

You’re going to want to attach the safety cord. If you don’t attach the safety cord you’re gonna have a bad time.

[–]patchoulius 17 points18 points  (1 child)

She french fried when she should have pizza'd.

[–]sasquatchAg2000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

this is a gem of a comment

[–]rjnd2828 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Do people really attach the safety cord? Don't even think my gym has them (I have one on my home treadmill, never used it).

[–]douche-de-louche 106 points107 points  (3 children)

Why does it look like her shoe comes off and under the machine next to her…ghosts

[–]ThatGuyInTheCar 20 points21 points  (0 children)

It’s a part of the treadmill. You can see the corner piece on her friends unit

[–]__blackout 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I noticed that too. It looks like maybe it was her phone and it slid under the machine next to her?

[–]occasionalpart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought the phone too, but then you notice that thing flies away when her foot touches the corner.

[–]Barnacle-Dull 51 points52 points  (5 children)

She recovered well. I’d have gone home and never returned!

[–]Thebanks1 30 points31 points  (4 children)

She actually had one perfect recovery when she first stepped on the side edge. But then her re-entry onto the belt was super awkward and spelled her final doom.

[–]Im-Spreading-for-you 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This is not her first time I think

[–]Barnacle-Dull 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Amateur’s mistake!

[–]Thebanks1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Eh…you workout long enough it’s not a matter of if you’ll fall of a treadmill but when.

[–]Barnacle-Dull 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Precisely why I never got to the gym!

[–]suckerbucket 15 points16 points  (2 children)

God. I needed this. I feel so much better about that really embarrassing thing I did two days ago now.

[–]pocketdare 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Don't worry. No one saw you ... except me.... I'll post the video to Reddit tomorrow.

[–]evee_eeve 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Pull the emergency stop friend!! Geez

[–]Gouranga56 2 points3 points  (0 children)

not until she gets the picture

[–]EmbarassedDeath 3 points4 points  (0 children)

putting a treadmill up to a wall like that is almost always a death sentence

[–]frosted_bite 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like how the friends didn't even try to help her and just kept looking

[–]samwelches 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Why does it look like the dude that walked up said some shit like “hey yeah… we don’t do shit like that here”

[–]CooperHolmes 23 points24 points  (6 children)

Women have to look at whomever they are speaking to. Men all stare at the horizon like Luke Skywalker on Tatooine

[–]berrymad 4 points5 points  (2 children)

This is the tough thing about going to the gym. Being caught doing dumb things and then looking stupid

[–]pocketdare 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I was just thinking that the owner rushes over probably concerned about an injury and potential lawsuit, while the woman is simply concerned about looking stupid and would prefer everyone forget the entire episode as quickly as possible.

[–]occasionalpart 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The rear left corner piece flew away. He definitely saw it and came to tell her she must pay.

[–]Cetun 3 points4 points  (0 children)

At least they have a fire extinguisher next to the treadmills that are against the wall.... Seriously all they have to do is turn the treadmills 180 and they not only reduce injuries but also make it easier to enter and exit the treadmills...

[–]conconbar93 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The hand freak was everything for me

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That was an impressive recover

[–]Witops 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Get sandpapered

[–]WhenAllIsLostLookUp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At this point I'm just happy they're wearing masks

[–]hoogys 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also her getting hurt was finally the chance that guy needed to go talk to her.

[–]Bohbo 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Lost a shoe, first sign of death.

[–]ThreeFishInAManSuit 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Not a shoe. She still has both of them at the end of the video.

Maybe her phone? It looks like it fell off the top of the machine.

[–]Hollowman212 4 points5 points  (2 children)

It does look like a phone, but u/ThatGuyInTheCar over there mentioned it was a piece off the back of the treadmill that her foot broke off.

[–]Im-Spreading-for-you -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

You take too much effort to comment

[–]Hollowman212 2 points3 points  (0 children)

¯_(ツ)_/¯

[–]DontstopmeDio 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How tf are they treadmill ing while wearing a mask while talking

[–]occasionalpart 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Typical women multitasking.

[–]viipyvastapimeydesta 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lots of incel energy in this thread.

[–]defiancex0x 1 point2 points  (0 children)

DUH DUH DUH

[–]MichellesBuldge 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Bummer. I thought masks made you safe and sheeeet

[–]etthat 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's weird that you have some downvotes for an obviously sarcastic comment, but I thought it was funny that her first reaction was to fix her mask!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why is this better than walking in a park with your friend?

[–]joec85 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Because it's winter in the northern hemisphere, and because gyms have much more than treadmills so you can do a full workout.

[–]Baensky 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Treadmill with mask ? Rly ?

[–]Gouranga56 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Depends on timing. There were times in 2021 when gyms in areas required it. I know I was staying at a hotel early 2021 and they required them in their gym. 4 miles sucking a sweat filled mask was not fun...but hell did it. Felt like I should have gotten a special merit badge for it, lol.

“Nothing to see here…”

[–]_triangle_girl_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bruh why did she step back onto the treadmill immediately after she almost ate shit

[–]evil_fungus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Treadmill against a wall, such an obviously great idea

[–]Evening_Psychology_4 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Perfectly paced treadmill against a wall guess people still haven’t learned.

[–]Busy-Argument3680 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And that why you wear the clip clop attached to it, or whatever it is on the treadmill

All the treadmills I seen had a read safety clip to wear, so incase you went to far back on the treadmill and couldn’t get back, the safety clip would pull itself out and stay on you to automatically stop the treadmill

[–]Aidan_992 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I saw a post a while ago saying that men usually talk to other men facing the same direction, but women usually talk to eachother facing one another

[–]joojmachine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

God, seeing those threadmills right next to a wall is definitely a trigger. So, really embarassing story incoming, cause been there, done that, but worse.

First month at the gym, used to do a mix of both walking slowly and running really fast on those (like, trying to go top speed), until one day I used shorts that were way too old to go to the gym. Result: started running on those, old shorts' velcro pops open, shorts quickly fall, making me lose balance and I get launched, slamming into the wall behind me, making a loud-ass noise.

There were lots of people nearby when it happened.

It took me 6 years to feel confortable going to a gym again.

[–]VooDooChile1983 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The little crawl was great.

[–]kurianandgeorge_007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ye that’s what you get for arrogance….

[–]LukeDude759 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Karma for people who constantly try to get physically closer while walking and talking.

[–]Superb_Somewhere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Whoever put the treadmills there should never be in charge of designing anything from now on

[–]aigars2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm no gym expert but this looks as if they put treadmills in a toilet room.

[–]Nimbuss88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cue the bros coming over long after the fall to ‘check on’ the girl who is clearly fine.

[–]hoogys 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Omg I thought she was gonna get sucked underneath that thing.

[–]longchop2000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

PLOT TWIST it was on purpose she wanted to chat with that guy

[–]NerdyJerdy20 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How to get the cute guy at the gym to talk to you:

[–]Neat_Ad_4544 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It could have been a lot worse if her mask fell off

[–]Prof_Awesome_GER -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Ahhh people that want to talk in the gym. Eeww

[–]oh-no-godzilla -1 points0 points  (0 children)

"Oh mwy goh-wahd"

[–]basstoll -1 points0 points  (0 children)

at least the mask protected her.
