On TikTok, gym videos have been popular for a long time. From posting workout videos to things happening regularly in a gym, these videos have become a favorite among TikTok users. Recently, a TikTok user, @nataleebfitness, added to this trend when she recorded a video inside her gym and asked those people for permission who could be seen in the video. It starts with, "POV: you tell people when they are in the frame." "Do you know, I am filming this way, do you mind being in the frame?" She asks a man and he says, "Cool, yeah" and then she thanks him. It is an essential video as it discusses the importance of consent while recording other people who are also using the gym. Moreover, recording someone can be a violation of their privacy, and therefore, asking for permission is the right way to continue.
The video does not end there as the woman uses the treadmill, she informs a man next to it that she has been recording a video by saying, "By the way, just so you know I'm filming this way." He says, "Do you want me out of it?" She said, "No, no, I don't mind. I'm just saying, do you mind?" He said, "Well I am gonna ruin your video." She says, "Oh no, you are not gonna ruin it, it's okay." In the last few seconds of the video, @nataleebfitness tells a woman that she is also a part of her video's frame and the woman says, "You don't mind me being in your video?" "Oh, I don't mind being in the video." "I watch your videos on TikTok." The TikTok user says, "You look lovely, so thank you."
This video received a lot of support on TikTok. It has received 17.8 million views, 4 million likes and 8,321 comments. One TikTok user commented, "I love how considerate you are with people's consent. I wish everyone was like this, thank you for being that small percentage that is." @Adele commented, "You are so beautiful. you always give me the motivation to go to the gym. Love you." @RduYn wrote, "I think this is how it is meant to be done. Thank you for acting as such a great example."
In another heartwarming video about workouts and gym, an Instagram user, @sandsxfitness, is seen attempting to do a pull-up but failing because she is afraid of not being able to reach the bar or slipping halfway through it. "How do you get up?" she says while looking around, asking for help. "Jump!" somebody else says, but Sandhya gets second thoughts and tries to fight over her fear of the seemingly harmless pull-up bar.
Later in the video, a man observes her from afar and volunteers to help her with a simple yet genius technique. "High five," the man exclaims as Sandhya leaps to clap his hands. He raises his hand farther with each clap to teach Sandhya how to jump on the bar without effort. She then goes to the bar, skillfully balances herself, and completes a full set of pull-ups in a split second. She exclaims with joy, "Oh my god, shut up!" and thanks the kind man for assisting her in overcoming her fear.
