WARNING: This is real nasty and if you’re looking for a gnarly excuse to never do another spin class, this story is for you.
A woman in the (you guessed it) US is suing cult-like fitness conglomerate SoulCycle after getting her leg impaled on one of their stationary bikes.
In a lawsuit filed on Thursday, 42-year-old Donna Wood claims that in January of 2016 she attended a class while on holiday with her hubbie in Beverley Hills.
She says that during this class she impaled her leg while dismounting a bike. To make matters worse, no one in the class noticed for a fair while ’cause the music was so damn loud.
“She was left dangling by her right leg, which she could not dislodge. Though she screamed for assistance, because the class was in cool down mode and music was still playing loudly and the room still dark, she was not heard or seen for several minutes,” reads the gross lawsuit filed with the Manhattan Supreme Court.
Supposedly, it was another patron in the class that eventually saw Wood and dislodged the beam. Not the instructor; no. Another patron. Can you imagine the scene?! As if spin classes aren’t torture enough?! This woman had to endure sickeningly saccharine pop music blaring in her eardrums while dangling by her leg off an exercise machine designed to tear apart your legs.
The report also outlines that no one called an ambo, and instead, Wood caught a freakin’ Uber to the hospital where she copped over 50 surgical staples.
Even with pain medication, Wood’s flight back home hurt like a bitch and she developed an infection, the suit says. After several rounds of treatment, she finally recovered in April, but “the laceration left a deep and permanent scar,” according to court papers.
Wood is suing for unspecified damages.
Let this be the inspiration you crave to never exercise again.
