Don’t be the Barney at your gym!


We all make them, in every area of our lives. Some of us probably make more mistakes in one particular area than another, but the truth is we all f*%k up along the way. 

Some mistakes are easily recovered from (stepping in dog crap), others not so much (driving under the influence, getting locked up and having a large Nigerian nicknamed “The Hammer” as your cell mate)..
