Gymaimium

Created by: stache

Predictably, however, the event resulted in extensive gymaimium, from severe shin splints to bleeding, chafed nipples.

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: train-crash

Sentence: Connor's traincrash was the worst I'd ever seen at the gym.

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