Jimmy Fallon Shares His Favorite #FitnessFail Tweets From 'Tonight Show' Fans

How's that New Year's resolution going?

It's January, which means plenty of people are trying to keep up with their New Year's resolution to be healthier, with some faring better than others. If you're having trouble motivating yourself to go to the gym — or if things aren't going so well once you're there — then Jimmy Fallon's latest hashtag #FitnessFail will remind you you're not alone.

Fallon asked his Tonight Show viewers to share their funniest stories about working out or dieting, and read his favorites on Thursday night's show. As usual, there were plenty of relatable anecdotes for anyone who's ever set out to be healthier.


One viewer bought a training system online only to be contacted by her credit card company with a fraud alert. Another had the kind of weight-lifting mishap you see in the movies (we hope he's OK). Then there's the guy who decided to break his "free day" into "small chunks of time," so he could get away with eating cookies. 

"Hour here, hour there," Steve Higgins joked, and we have to admit we like the way he thinks.

Check out some of our favorite tweets that didn't make the cut below, including one from the host himself:
