From a sign I saw at the gym. The sign was advertising a promotion and this sentence explained one of the benefits:
"Get a free bottle of water every time you workout."
The word "workout" is a noun. The verb "to work out" has a space. This is a classic phrasal verb mistake.
I wrote an episode on this very topic for Grammar Girl:
It's something you should checkout (I mean check out).
