Gym is a place where people to get fit, build a bit of muscle and maybe even make a few mates.
One girl had a terrible experience in gym, when she splashed the bronze on before a workout.
Eve, from Falkirk, Scotland, was left with an Adidas branded leg after tanning before putting her leggings on and heading for the gym.

She posted a photo of her tanning mishap on Twitter, Eve typed: “That’s the last time a work out with tan on btw ahahah”.
After posting, the photo has received a fair bit of attention.
The post has had almost 33,000 likes, 3,500 retweets and even a response from Adidas.
We’d say it’s fate.
Way to rep the Three Stripes, Eve. We see you. 👀

As it turned out, Eve is far from alone and some other unfortunate self-tanners came out of the woodwork to share their experiences too.

In one of the incident, a fellow fake tan-lover was left housebound for a week when a routine application went awry.
Alicia Bettsworth, the mother of 18-year-old, put three layers of ultra-dark fake tan on her body but fell asleep.
In the morning, when her 14-week-old daughter caught sight of her she was so horrified that she burst into tears.
Alicia from Crawley, West Sussex, said: “When I woke up the next day and saw what colour I was I thought ‘what the hell have I done?’
“Once I got over the shock I started laughing and thought it was hilarious. I looked like I’d bathed in Nutella.
“It’s such a ‘me’ thing to do – I didn’t mean to fall asleep. I jumped in the shower and tried getting it off using body scrub but it wouldn’t budge.
“Everyone who’s seen it thinking I’m sitting on the sofa but I’m in bed – people think I’m a brown leather sofa.
“My little girl looked a bit confused at first and then she burst into tears – she was probably a bit scared. Once she realised it was me she stopped crying and started laughing.”
