A woman was left horrified when she re-watched her video to find a man recording her inside the gym.
Maria, from Illinois in US, went to her local gym for a quick workout and took a video of herself to watch her form while she was doing weight training.
The clip – taken just days after another woman experienced a similar incident occurred at a separate gym – shows how her camera also caught a man filming her back as he walked behind.
Posting the proof online, Maria said: “I’m disgusted. I was recording myself but it looks like I wasn’t the only one.”
The man walks into the frame and drops his duffle bag right behind Maria. He can be seen holding a phone in his left hand and his phone screen appears to show that he is recording her.
At the same time, Maria turns around and tells him: “Oh no, sorry, you’re fine.”
She also added in the caption: “I didn’t notice until I watched the video in my car…”
The 22-year-old later explained that she was disgusted by the man’s act and admitted that she would confront him if she was not running late for work.
“I set up my phone against a machine and this man walked by, so I thought ‘oh I need to move because I was in his way’,” Maria detailed.
“So I apologised and said ‘Oh no, sorry, you’re fine’ but little did I know that he was recording me.
“It wasn’t until I’m done working out and came into my car and re-watched the video and saw that he was, in fact, recording me.”
On Saturday (November 20), Maria had reached out to the assistant operations manager, adding: “We were going to review the footage, which showed the exact time that I was working out and the exact time that he was there recording me.”
Maria received some positive responses from viewers who told her the manager could revoke the man’s gym membership.

“I work for a gym, all you have to do is take that to the front desk and they’ll cancel his membership,” one said.
A second wrote: “I’m sorry that happened to you, the nerve of some people is sick.”
Another commented: “I don’t get it, he recorded you but you recorded the same thing he recorded and uploaded it to the public. Anyone can download this and you won’t know.”
