We finally make a resolution to get our bodies in shape and the nerve to hit the gym. We’re feeling good about ourselves. Maybe even a little excited. I mean, we’re actually working out…in front of other people! Only, we have no idea what we’re doing. So, we make it up as we go along. “Success,” Winston Churchill said, “consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” In this hilarious collection of gym fails are examples of people working out with great enthusiasm, but not getting in shape! And we’re thankful to know we’re not alone.

Oh, and do us one tiny favor? When you go back to Facebook, could you please like the post that you clicked on to get here? It'll help these "Dose of Daily Awesomeness" posts tremendously so that I can keep them coming for a long time to come. THANK YOU!

Can read a trail map, a music score, Chaucer, and a balance sheet. 1 part executive, 1 part entrepreneur, 2 parts geek, and 3 parts Dad. Love lime juice on chef salads and Rudy's BBQ sauce on my brisket.Some days I amaze myself. Other days I look for the phone while I'm still talking on it. On amazing days, I produce technical writing that helps people get things done.
