It is important to fuel a work out properly because...

... fainting mid PT session is deeply embarassing.

    You okay OP? I remember feeling sick when I had a PT or went to classes making me do a bunch of burpees and crap.

    I am fine. It was my own fault. Being on half term from school (teacher) meant I got to the gym am. not pm. and I hadn't factored in the difference made by a day's worth of nutrition and hydration. I shall be back there tonight for RPM, but will make sure I'm all fuelled up. Thanks for your concern.

    Been there. Except I was seeing spots in the shower after, didn't actually faint, but I felt awful. My idiot, out of shape self tried to keep up with my husband's preparation for his military pfa...

    I also had a coworker who hired a personal trainer and he worked her so hard the first day that she puked right on the gym floor.

    I'm sorry that happened to you OP. :(

    Been there, I had to hold onto the wall of the shower afterwards because I started seeing spots and got dizzy all of a sudden.

    Managed RPM without a problem, though I must admit to having gone easy on myself. Thanks to you all for your concern.

    Lol, it happens to all of us :) I lift fasted, first thing in the morning, and for some reason thought that meant that I would also be able to run fasted. I got halfway through (read: the absolute farthest point from home that I was going to be), and totally hit a wall. I remember thinking "it's downtown; I can probably get away with just sitting my butt down in the middle of the sidewalk, right?"
