PALM HARBOR, Fla. – When you put your headphones on at the gym, you may lose track of time.

A Florida man says he was listening to music when he got into the sauna at LA Fitness.

When he came out a little while later, he realized that he had been locked inside the gym.

Nick Clayton told WTVT that when he went to the men’s locker room, the gym still had clients working out on the machines.

However, when he came out 15 minutes later, the place was empty and dark.

“I’ve survived. Barely. I started by calling my Mom. She couldn’t stop laughing, so I ended that phone call. Thankfully, another LA Fitness was still open. Again, more chuckling. Told them I really didn’t want the police to ended (sic) up coming up and questioning me if there was an alarm. They had to call the management of the particular location and finally told me it would be fine to exit. Truly… like something out of a damn movie. Unreal,” Clayton wrote on Facebook.
