A video posted online by fitness blogger Laura Becker shows the hilarious moment an exercise band snapped and hit her in the face.
The loud noise scared her concerned pup Cooper, who went to check and make sure his mom was okay.
Laura was following a workout video in Maryland. The video shows her her legs with the band when the rubber snapped and came flying back to hit her in the face.

‘I felt like I got punched in the face and [it] was less than an inch above my right eye,’ Laura said.
She lays for a bit, afraid to look and see if her eye is bleeding.
Thankfully, it was just a red whip line on her eyelid under her eyebrow.

Laura shared a photo after the accident on social media when a follower asked if she was ok
Laura said that from now on she’ll be checking the integrity of her workout bands before using them.
She did finish her workout after the band snapped – this time wearing a motorcycle helmet for protection. She shared a video on Facebook of her unique protective strategy.
