Pilates Machines Are Tricky

<a href="http://www.bing.com/videos/browse?mkt=en-us&#038;vid=62750fb7-071f-45bc-b702-434cb1bd7881&#038;from=en-us&#038;fg=dest" target="_new" title="Work Out Gone Wrong">Video: Work Out Gone Wrong</a>

An alert and astute mockdocker sent me this video along with a message that said, “THIS is why I do my pilates at home—not because I’m so klutzy that this might happen, but because I’m so klutzy it will happen and I never want witnesses to film it so that I end up on themockdock.”

I kind of love that I’m the reason someone DOESN’T do something. I mean, that implies that I’m relevant in some way, and I enjoy relevancy.

But seriously, this is embarrassing. Workout equipment shouldn’t be something you can Atually Get Tangled up in.

    A whole new meaning to the term “feet behind the ears” and not in a good way.

    That is so hilarious and yet so painful-looking at the same time.

    Usually, something like that is preceded by the words
    “Hey y’all, watch this”

    I just know that this could happen to me! OW!

    This gives me the glees!

    True story: When I got my first treadmill, we lived in a teeny-tiny duplex and the only place to put it was in the corner of the living room. So I hopped on my treadmill and started going. (I was fabulous for a first-timer, if I do say so myself.) But when I was ready to be done, I turned it off. Or so I thought. Turns out I revved the darn thing to top speed and ended up falling all over myself, smashing a hole in the wall behind me and scaping/burning my knees, an elbow and my chin. Thank God, when I called my husband in a panic to confess the heel-shaped hole in the wall, he laughed instead of being angry with me.

    I still can’t believe he’s allowed me to get an eliptical trainer, a Pilates machine, and Wii fit. That, my fellow mockdockers, is true love!

    Ummmm yeah…that so needed a warning. I hate videos like that. LOL They make me jump and gasp. That looked more like an “ow” that looked like an “OMG, she’s going to the ER!”

    Just shuddering.

    Yeah…so apparently that video left me not being able to talk/think/type right.

    That should have said:

    That looked less like an “ow” and looked more like an “OMG, she’s going to the ER!”
