A woman has captured creepy TikTok footage of a man harassing her at the gym as she attempted to lift weights.

The fitness fanatic was filming herself doing a workout in front of the mirror when a man approached her from the corner of the camera.

The US woman explained she had “never met” the man but claimed he had been harassing her at the gym for months.

As the woman continued to lift the weights, the man came close to her and tried to engage her in conversation.

When she ignored his advances, the man then aggressively pointed and moved closer towards her.

The woman then dropped her weights to the ground and replied: “Don’t come near me.”

“I was just trying to work out when this happens,” she captioned the video, which was titled “being female is fun”.

The footage has since attracted 33.8 million views and over 5.7 million likes.

After the video went viral, the TikTok star then posted two follow-up videos explaining the man has since been banned from the gym.

She also told her fans the man “seemed like a random nice guy” when he first approached her months ago.

“He’d come up and talk to people in the gym [and he told me] my form was looking really good,” she said.

The woman then revealed the man attempted to return to the gym before police were called and he was apparently arrested.

The viral footage struck a chord with fellow TikTok users, with commenters showing their support for the woman and offering advice for any other creepy encounters.

“The gym should be a safe space for everyone,” one comment read. “We’re sorry it hasn’t been for you lately. Proud of you for sticking up for yourself!”

“Please go tell the staff/management at your gym. This is wildly unacceptable and they can help you out!’ another said.
