This has absolutely nothing to do with infertility for once...
Working in a gym, especially as a trainer, sometimes we experience some rather embarrassing bodily functions. I once was working with a gal and she was doing sit ups. With each one, EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. she would fart as she came up. I ignored it for the first couple, even though I was dying inside laughing. After a few more sit ups, I suggested maybe she had done enough. The gal agreed. That was it. No further discussion. But oh what a good story I've had for years to come.
Another time, I was working with an older gentleman that was new to the club. I was leading him to the other side of the weight room to the free weights and said "okay, now we are going to use the dumbbells."
He stopped dead in his tracks and asked "what did you just call me?"
"Uhhh, well that's just what these free weights are called, dumbbells."
He laughed and told me he was only kidding. Arg! I didn't know what to say, but it was pretty funny and he got me on that one!
Okay, back to the bodily functions. There is just something about working out that brings out the gas. I don't care how old you are, it is STILL funny when it happens unexpectedly and at the most embarrassing times. I have a 70 year old gal that I've worked with for just over 3 years. She is my hero. When I started training her, she could not get up off the floor without crawling to a piece of equipment to help her get up. She struggled to climb stairs. Now she has done a 40 mile bike ride, completed 4 mini triathlons, and done numerous 5k races. Again, let me just say, she is my hero.
One day, she was doing her workout, and low and behold, she accidentally farted. She exclaimed "Oops! Excuse me!" And then we both giggled like little girls for the rest of her workout.
There are other times that it happens, and I just pretend to ignore it, even though I am laughing on the inside and praying it doesn't stink. I'm sure the client is praying it doesn't stink as well, while they are ignoring the fact that they just tooted and hoping I didn't hear it.
When I saw this e-card on Facebook this morning, I knew I had to share it. I hope that you get a giggle out of it like I did. Come on. Admit it. There have been times you've done something and thought this very thing! Don't fart, don't fart.......just don't fart!
