A FITNESS lover has shared the “genius” way she makes sure that people don’t touch her machines at the gym.
She used her creative skills to mark her territory in a TikTok video, but some people say they hope it’s a joke.
Pareesa Akbar is a fitness trainer and influencer who shares relatable gym content on her Instagram.
She keeps it real about her weight loss and wellness journey and also showcases how the gym plays a role in her life.
In a TikTok video, she brought viewers with her to work out and let them in on a unique hack.
When she’s ready to get her cardio on, she has a way to make sure people don’t touch her machine.
At the start of the quick video, the camera was panned toward a set of stair masters.
“How I save my cardio machine for Monday’s 5 – 7 p.m.,” the subtitle above the visual read.
Then, the brunette walked into the frame and placed something quickly on the steps of the machine before walking away.
Upon closer review, it’s apparent that she placed a sign on it that read: “Out of Order.”

“Works every time,” Pareesa wrote in the video’s caption.

“Ok but actually genius,” one viewer commented.
“Please I hope it’s just a joke,” another chimed in.
“I’d throw the sign in the trash. You can’t put bids on machines,” another added.
“Stop this is so smart,” a fan wrote.
