Excersciatica

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: eksərsīatikə

Sentence: Joyce is not one to do things halfway. If there is something to do, she will do it twice or twice as hard. She loves her exercise classes, but often ends up injuring herself with her exuberance. Her knees, legs, neck, elbows or back take the brunt of Taebo, Pilates and Jazzercise. Her latest fixation, EuroBlastTraining (don't ask). Her latest ailment? Excersciatica!

Etymology: exercise (activity requiring physical effort, carried out esp. to sustain or improve health and fitness) + sciatica (pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg)

Traincrash

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: train-crash

Sentence: Connor's traincrash was the worst I'd ever seen at the gym. After two full days of repetitions on the machines, he was so exhausted that he fell asleep against the weights rack, which caused the weights to roll along the floor taking out half the yoga class, the rest of whom ran screaming towards the treadmills causing one of the joggers to lose his footing and suddenly shoot backward wherein he splashed into the pool causing a huge puddle to flood the floor beneath the weight rack giving Connor a terrible electric shock resulting in burns to 75% of his body and a nasty tremor that he'll have for the rest of his life.

Etymology: train (undertake a fitness program) + crash (incident that often causes injury) + train crash (something that is awful to witness)
