A village was in absolute shock when a tigress intruded it. However, the reason the large cat showed up is absolutely incredible – to find a dentist. This particular Siberian Tigress is one of only 500 left.
It seems like she left her natural habitat to find help for a terrible gum problem that was preventing her from eating. As it peacefully lay down waiting for help, the humans on the premises couldn’t understand what was going on.
Normally, Tigers will stay away from humans. Survival instinct truly kicked in and the Tigress would seek help from anyone, or anything in order to keep going. Solontsovy resident Galina Tsimano revealed how someone in her village found the Tigress outside their home when they woke up.
“He wanted to go out to the yard in the morning, but his door was pressed by ‘someone’ from outside,” she said. “He began to push the door and heard a tiger growling. He went back inside and started calling all the emergency services.’
Although the cat was apprehensive about the human’s presence, it was too weak to defend itself. However, experts believe that she was actually seeking help. Once the animal was sedated, it was taken by a group of men to a medical unit in a nearby village.
“The tigress behaved absolutely peacefully, as if she was waiting for help,” director of Amur Tiger Center, Sergey Aramilev said. “Nevertheless, the condition of the rare predator is severe and it needs urgent action. There were no visible injuries from firearms. However, there are problems with her oral cavity.”
One conservationist expressed their concern about the cat’s wellbeing. “The tigress is thoroughly exhausted,” Yury Kolpak said. “She has serious gum problems and there are no upper teeth.”
Although it was a while before she was fit for surgery, vets have been trying to work out exactly how to handle her obvious problems. “We really hope that the tigress will pick herself up and survive,” Aramilev said.
Healthy living is a major life adjustment – it requires complete dedication and committing oneself fully to both exercise and a balanced diet. Sometimes, however, the beginning can be a little bit shaky, as demonstrated by the people on this list.
New Year Resolution
It is almost that time of the year again, and somehow no matter how many years pass, these resolutions always repeat themselves since we have a hard time following through. It is all good and well to swear that this time it will happen – we will dedicate two evenings a week to working out – but we know that the New Year’s Resolution crew will most certainly disappear from the gym midway through January, finally freeing up the machines again.
Come As You Are
Looking at this picture, the first assumption that comes to mind is that this guy attends the gym just so that he could watch his football games in peace, and then treat himself to a pampering visit to the sauna. However, this could also be his way of unwinding after an extremely tough and demanding workout session, which definitely means he earned some “me” time. Maybe next time, however, he could keep in mind that his “me” time is not necessarily “alone” time.
Doing a plank at the gym is a great way to work out your abs and your arms, with minimal cardio involved. Many people choose to do planks as part of their workout and see how long they can hold it. It’s unclear if this girl was trying to do a plank and failed, or was going for the weights and just simply gave up. Whatever her intentions, we don’t think lying down on top of weights will make you stronger through osmosis, sorry girl!
Upward Facing Dog
Putting aside the puppy eyes and the inevitable heart-melting effect that soon follows them, how amazing would it be if all our pets had a natural instinct to copy our every move while we were working out? The days of putting off exercise on account of feeling alone would be behind us, as we would always have a fluffy, tail-wagging best friend by our side imitating the upward facing dog yoga position in the most precise way.
Baby On Board
While there are exercises that consist of working out with your baby, we are pretty sure this was not one of them. The adorable baby might seem at ease in the picture, but that is because it has no idea its father is risking its life by holding extremely heavy weights above both their heads. This is one move we beg people do not try at home, there are plenty of safer ones to try with your newborn.
Better safe than sorry, but the man in the picture is taking some extreme safety measures that seem a little redundant considering he’s on a stationary bike. Perhaps the poor guy’s real bike was stolen, which is why he came into the gym dressed in attire that was proper for mountain riding and not indoor training, but he clearly did not get the memo that this type of session does not require clothes that reflect light and a helmet.
The Toilet Stance
While squats can be extremely useful for one’s core and legs, this lady is practicing for another reason: she doesn’t know how to sit on the toilet properly. For her entire life, she hasn’t mastered the art of sitting on the seat in order to do her business. Every time, she would simply fall off and bang her head. Now though, after a whole year of squats, the lady has no issues when going to the bathroom.
Look Ma, No Hands!
Ever wished that you could be the cool skater person in your gang of friends? Well, this young lady was able to kill two birds with one stone! Not only is she an active member at her local gym, but she is also able to sit on a skateboard and move around on it while doing sit-ups! This is quite a remarkable skill that we have never seen before. Or maybe this photo is cropped and she’s actually sitting on a mat.
We hope this guy was kitting – sorry, kidding! – when he put on this questionable leotard. It is a common misconception that those who are physically fit can pull off wearing anything, but the truth of the matter is that it does not matter if one has a purrrfect body or not – some things should be strictly banned from closets. The only time this sort of getup would be appropriate is the 31st of October, but certainly not as gym attire.
Old Age Goals
To the untrained eye, this poised lady looks out of place, with her salt-rimmed margarita glass and large pearl earrings. However, those who attend this small town gym know her very well. Despite her age, she insists on staying young at heart, which is why she refuses to move into a retirement home or join her friends’ weekly bingo gatherings. Instead, she would rather spend her time sipping her favorite drink and gazing at well-toned men flexing their biceps.
Brain Is A Muscle
You know when you were a little kid in school and were told that you have to do your homework and go over the taught material, because your brain is a muscle and it is in need to training, much like the rest of your body? Well, it seems that little word of caution deeply affected the man in the picture, who still has not fully grasped the concept of how to use all the machines available at the gym.
When going to the gym, we know there may be moments where we don’t look our best. Whether it’s running or lifting weights, we tend to put on faces that most people don’t normally see. This guy caught his friend in action and couldn’t resist snapping a photo, with another gym buddy photobombing him in the background. The man on the machine took it in jest, laughing with his friends about the ridiculous fest – but he never thought the whole internet would see this…oops!
Weigh Your Options
“You may talk the talk, but you do not walk the walk” said Maria to the guy in the picture below, who clearly tried to show off his latest workout stunts. Unfortunately for him, it seems as though he probably should have squeezed in a couple more one on one training sessions before lifting the heavy weights in front of his recent crush. Maybe that way he would not have ended up half lifting those weights dangerously above his head.
The Incredible Hulk
Thankfully, this picture is not a video, since we could not watch what would happen next. The well-built man at the bottom of the machine seems less than concerned about the number of weights and amount of pressure applied onto his lower body, but despite the visible muscles bulging out of his T-shirt and the trusty sidekick trainer by his side, something tells us the man is not the Incredible Hulk. To push oneself is good, but to exaggerate is precarious.
Defeating The Purpose
Escalators are a great solution for malls and other structures that are made of several stories since they take less time than elevators and can fit more people on them at once without having to wait for the next cart to come. However, placing escalators outside a gym seems to defeat the purpose of the gym – which is to get your heart racing and make your body push itself towards its physical limit. It would be interesting to see what kind of exercise machines this place has.
The Ultimate Test
Krispy Kreme doughnuts are not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of healthy food that is rich in nutritional value. Additionally, we do not think trainers employed by the gym categorize the delicious treat as a valid way to ‘carb up.’ If anything, this stand could have been put up in order to shame all that approached it to stay away from the fried dough of their dreams, a scare tactic that would have worked on many.
Music To My Back
Music is like food for the soul – it sets the mood and helps you make a swifter transition into different stages. Those who have a hard time making the shift into workout mode usually have a music list prepared ahead of time, ready to speed up the adrenaline in their bodies and, consequently, their heart rate. This guy was out of battery on his phone, so he figured the next best thing would be to plug his earphones into his tablet.
As Fast As You Can
Technology has brought numerous amazing inventions to humanity. More often than not, we found that the innovations offered had one main purpose – to make our lives a lot easier. Be it a smartphone that acts as a camera, personal assistant, and a device for instant communication or even a personalized mobile computer granting us access like never before, technology has changed the face of the Earth. This woman purchased a Segway to help her cut down on unnecessary walking, but using it on a treadmill is out of this world.
Picture Perfect Abs
Another type of group highly noticeable in the gym scene is the one that consists of those who show up wearing the latest athletic name brand merchandise solely to snap flattering pictures of themselves and post them on their highly publicized social media accounts. This guy decided he had enough with these types of girls spending their entire gym sessions posing in front of mirrors to get the perfect angle, so to make a point and poke some fun, he decided to mock them. His female followers weren’t so happy.
Enjoy It While You Can
Bulking up is important for those who want to go up a weight class, but eating a full-fat chocolate cake while lifting weights is probably not the best way to achieve that goal. It is also rude to be stuffing your face with such delicious treats in front of others who are most likely trying to lose weight and avoids baked goods, but that’s a whole other matter. To be frank, the guy doesn’t seem to be enjoying that cake anyway.
Mr. Potato head could be running on that treadmill for an ad meant to motivate kids to leave their computer games and TV screens in favor of physical exercise, or this could have been someone who could not find the time to balance both work and the gym – so they found a solution that is in between and gets the best of both worlds. It probably gets pretty hot inside that costume, though, so maybe a better plan would’ve been to wear activewear underneath.
A Tail Of Two Athletes
Man’s best friend also wanted a piece of the action, and what better way to do it than join their owner during a ferocious workout session? He seems ecstatic to be able to be a part of the exercise, even if it means bench-pressing and breaking a sweat. The exercise is probably a favorite pastime activity for the adorable pooch anyway, so if you top that with quality adoptive father-doggie time, this is pretty much as good as it gets.
As if it wasn’t confusing enough that these twins were already identical, hey also had to wear exactly the same gym clothes! What you might not realize is that the twins also have annoyingly similar names. The one on the left is called Gina, while the one on the right is called Jina. Or is the one on the right called Gina and the left one called Jina? One thing’s for sure: a twin must be the ideal gym buddy.
We hope this picture was taken after an intense workout session, and not a result of attempting to be an early bird and make it to the gym before it becomes overcrowded with other people. Perhaps this picture was taken by the girl’s best friend, who found it too hilarious that her pal was too tired to even make the short walk from the parking lot to the gym. Maybe she should consider a couple shots of espressos before doing any heavy lifting, just to be on the safe side.
Dress For The Part You Want
We have to give it up to this girl for having such dedication to her workouts that she will not let something as minor as being not appropriately dressed get in the middle of her daily workout schedule. Keeping this in mind, that is not to say that one should train while wearing a minidress and thin heels when attempting physcial exercise, as it is highly dangerous and the odds of you getting severly hurt are quite high.
Full Fat, Free Time
Among the many types of individuals that come to the gym on a daily basis are those that arrive simply for the sake of making a joke out of the whole deal. The man in the picture was fed up with exhausting training sessions that lead him to sweat more than he could bear, so he decided to do the exact opposite – walk into the gym with an Entertainment Weekly magazine in one hand and a full-fat cupcake in the other.
Running Like A Rodent
New inventions in the field of athleticism are always an exciting matter, especially for those who practice sports on an everyday level. They change their entire way of living to make sure they make the best out of their body and push their limits constantly to reach to goal and break old records. This instrument, which highly resembles a hamster running wheel, is the freshest one out there. If you always dreamed of running like a rodent – or at least wondered what it felt like – now it’s possible!
Stress Less, Princess
At least this young woman is not trying to pull of an “I know it all” face while attempting to swing from the ceiling – if anything, the mortifying expression she is uncontrollably showing is portraying remorse for using something she was not instructed to use. It seems as though this shot was taken only seconds before something horrible happened, which gets us to thinking that perhaps the person behind the camera should’ve put it away and come to her assistance.
Train The Trainer
The gym trainer at this local health club looks a lot like the person it is pointing his finger at, which gets us to think the two might be related. Needless to say, as is evident from the picture, the student has become the master and seems to be in better shape. If the trainer does not give a personal example of being a healthy individual and one that makes critical, conscious dietary decisions every day, you would probably not want them as your new physical life coach.
Gyms are meant to serve everyone, regardless of gender, religion or race. Unfortunately, it is hard to form one space that will suit all types of people, since they vary in shape and size. The poor guy in the picture below signed up for his local Chicago based gym because he thought the membership deal offered was a good one, but he forgot to check one minor detail – that it was capable of accommodating his tall frame. Needless to say he found a way around it.
Motivational quotes and constant reassuring messages remind you to stick to your goal and not give up when things get tough. Those who practice physical training rely on those words of wisdom to keep spirits high, but if there’s something that pushes one even further it’s having someone you love by your side. This couple apparently feels very comfortable around each other and work out together often, but need to keep in mind others might not be as free as they are.
Putting on a fierce face while working out is almost an unspoken rule, much like the one that states that when applying mascara, the person applying it will carry an expression that resembles the painted figure from Expressionist artist Edvard Munch’s 1893 piece, The Scream. This dynamic duo is clearly more invested in pulling off a flawless duckface pout than breaking a sweat, but if receiving likes on social media is what motivates them to tone up, who are we to judge?
This has to be one of the strangest ways we have seen a group work out together. We would recommend other techniques to strengthen one’s core muscles than pile up to form a human building block as it would not take much to make them all collapse. This could end in a serious injury, but we have to give these guys extra credit points for being creative. When you don’t have the proper equipment, you have to think outside the box.
Treadmills are not everyone’s favorite machine to hop on at the gym, which is understandable considering technology introduced many new ones that work on other core muscles and do not simulate a mundane activity, like running or power walking. The boy in the picture, however, does feel strongly about the all-time gym classic, which is highly evident in the picture below. It would probably be better to actually use the machine to workout next time, but turning it into an automated feeding machine is creative thinking, too.
Coming To The Rescue
Perhaps the Batmobile was stuck at the garage or Gotham City’s favorite superhero was feeling less athletic than he used to, but one thing is for sure – seeing Batman in the flesh running on a treadmill at your local gym is a sight we would hate to miss. It is highly evident these girls never expected their workout session would include the hunk behind the mask either, but it is very reassuring to know those who keep us safe at night are still out there.
Never Skip Leg Day
There is a reason that those who work out regularly make it a habit to stress the importance of not skipping leg day – if you do, you end up looking severely unbalanced like the guy in the picture below. A lot of people who start working out have a clear vision in their heads of what body part they want to work on, but it is important not to neglect other body parts as well so that you keep a proportional figure.
While they may not be a fashion statement or look particularly dazzling, sneakers should be the obvious choice when it comes to workout footwear.
This lady decided to multitask rather than wait around while her hair sets. Waiting on the couch is undoubtedly much more comfortable than the exercise machine the lady in pink is situated on, but credit is given where credit is due, and this strong woman should be praised for taking every spare minute she has to tone up her body and stay in shape. At her age, it is even harder not to give in to a life made of pure comfort, so well done.
Weigh Your Options
Someone should have taught this boy how to use the equipment found in the gym, since it seems dangerous to crouch on weights while trying to lift one that is exceptionally heavy. His friend, the same one who is sitting down and watching him risk getting a knee injury, probably should have gotten up from his seat and enabled his friend to stand on the bench, if he was that committed to not standing on the ground.
Balancing It All
As an engineering student at a prestigious university was all this guy ever dreamed of, he was finally able to study the one topic he always felt drawn to and attend lectures held by the most sought-after professors in the industry. Unfortunately, getting into school did not mean his hard work was going to cease – in fact, he had to study even harder not to lose his grant. In order to keep his mind and body in check, he found the ultimate full-body workout.
No, this is not yet another fast food franchise ad meant to demonstrate that the deep fried dishes offered at a ridiculous price are actually good for you. As much as a McDonald’s crispy chicken salad sounds like a quick and easy fix that is low on calorie intake, it is unlikely that the menu deal fits a lifestyle that includes getting in shape. Poor Ronald looks like he’s giving everything he’s got to lift up those weights, but for now, he should stick to what he knows best.
It Was A Blur
It is amazing what people can do with their smartphones to make them the center of attention in their photos. This woman chose to blur her surroundings in order to make herself stand out. We only have one question to ask: why? Why do that when you are already the main focus of the photo? You are right in the middle! Maybe she was insecure because nobody at the gym was looking at her. This explains everything.
Who’s Gonna Take The Weight?
When these two friends were asked the question, “who’s gonna take the weight,” they took it literally. Normally it refers to who is going to take the responsibility to make the world a better place. However, they were only interested in literal weights and were happy to do it together. Because let’s face it; going to the gym can be a difficult thing to do alone. It’s always nice to have someone there for moral support.
Pink Is The New Black
Why wear virtually all black if you are going to rock some insanely loud, pink running shoes to the gym? It absolutely baffles us. You have two perfectly good options. Either, you can wear all black, or you can wear all pink instead. The main thing that matters is that this young lady is comfortable in her own skin and is confident in the way she dresses. It seems like all of the criticism she gets actually spurs her on.
Force Of Habit
Sometimes, people think they are doing others a favor by nudging them to get their act together. Working out is one way of getting your act together, but those who feel unmotivated – or even depressed – cannot be forced to make a change in their life – they need to decide to do so themselves. It is unclear if the girl in the photo was pushed to go to the gym against her will or was simply feeling too lazy to actually exercise, but she seems happy with her solution.
