‘I’m sorry, I’m just stuck’: Hilarious video shows fitness influencer stuck upside down in gym equipment calling 911
BEREA, OHIO: A hilarious video captured the moment an avid gymgoer got stuck upside-down in an exercise machine and had to call 911 for help. The fitness debacle was shared by her on her TikTok account and has gone viral since as people could not get enough of this mirthful content. The incident occurred at a gym in Ohio at 3 am, when the gymgoer got stuck using the inversion table and had to call for help.
Christine Faulds was an unfateful one who stuck using an inversion table, which is used to ease people’s back pain by turning them upside-down. Faulds was working out at 3 am at the 24-hour Powerhouse Gym in Berea when this incident took place. The social media influencer was recording a video of herself using the exercise equipment when this her whole world turned 180 degrees. Luckily she was wearing a smartwatch and was able to call 911. While talking to the dispatcher she said, "This is so embarrassing," referring to the situation she was in. The TikTok video captures the fun as it catches Faulds in a candid moment where she realizes the trouble she is in.
In the video, she says that the reason she set up her phone was "to record a video of me on the inversion table and just saying how much I love it for my low back, especially when I’m going to the gym at 3 a.m. and my back is really stiff and doesn’t want to wake up." As she flaps while hanging upside down, she makes an attempt to crunch and make her way up the leg clamps but is unable to. The incident could have turned south quickly as anybody else who was in the gym was in other rooms and was unaware of Fauld's condition. Thanks to her smartwatch, she was able to call 911 and get herself out of this situation.

The upside-down influencer revealed how the gym staff was unavailable as well and the members could just scan their key cards and avail the services of the gym. She says in the video, "There’s only one person at the gym and I got stuck in, you know that backboard thing. I’m stuck in this reverse, like, back decompression thing." While talking to the dispatcher she says, "I think the thing went too far and I just got stuck upside-down and cannot get myself right side up. I’m trying to get my buddy’s attention but he’s in the other room lifting. I’m sorry, I’m just stuck.”
In total, Faulds had to see the world from a different angle for 12 minutes before the police arrived and helped the gymgoer in distress. The viral TikTok video, with over 7 million views, shows the help freeing her from her spine-decompressing dungeon. Luckily she wasn't injured in any way or form. But she does talk about the whole TikTok experience that has been tiring saying it was "so overwhelming and I just need a mental break."
