Woman Kicked Out Of Fitness Class For Being Pregnant (REAL)
A mom-to-be from Sydney, Australia is claiming she was kicked out of a fitness class at her gym because she was pregnant. Natalie Hillar, who is six months pregnant, was attending her usual Bodycombat class at Fitness First gym when she says she was “humiliated” in front of the class as the instructor forced her to leave.
The class started as it normally does, with the instructor reading a disclaimer about those who are pregnant or injured needing medical clearance to take the class, which Hillar says she has. But it looks like the instructor was taking the warning a little more seriously this time, as a few minutes into the class she allegedly stopped the music and said, “I don’t know if anyone heard me at the beginning of the class but I don’t teach pregnant people." This apparently happened a few more times until Hillar concluded she was being asked to leave.
A spokesperson for Fitness First seems to defend the incident, calling the instructor's disclaimer and repeated warnings a “professional recommendation” coinciding with the gym’s requirement that instructors warn members against taking part in exercises that may be unsafe. “The class ‘Bodycombat’ is not recommended during pregnancy because of joint instability,” the spokesperson adds.

Bride-To-Be Allegedly Making Friends Compete To Be Bridesmaids (REAL)
An anonymous Reddit user claims to be the sister of a bride-to-be that is making seven of her friends compete for the four spots in her bridal party. But not via some simple favors, this bridezilla’s demands require each person shell out a minimum of $1150 in gifts and other expenses.
According to screenshots of the texts from the bride-to-be, she outlines these requirements in order for the girls to be considered one of the bridesmaids:
- Host a couples party at an actual venue (meaning not a house)
- Give them a wedding gift of either cash or check that’s at least $500
- Buy either her or her soon-to-be groom a “day of gift” with a value of at least $100
- “Attend every shower/party” that the couple holds and hand over an additional gift worth at least $50 for each one
- Sign a contract promising to meet all of the requirements, or else they have to reimburse the couple “for the time we wasted and the stress of causing problems”
Needless to say, Redditors thought the demands were ridiculous, many of them telling the sister to refuse to take part in the “Bridal Party Brawl.” Meanwhile, it turns out the so-called “bridezilla” isn’t really even a bride-to-be, since she hasn’t even gotten engaged yet. She’s just sniffing out bridal party members for her potential wedding.
