a + gerund

Today we focused on the word  'a training' which in fact does not exist in English in this form. None of the ' a + gerund' forms exist; much to the despair of my French speaking students who were convinced it was an English term. So just to set the record straight:

'a training' is a training course
'a jogging' is a tracksuit
'a parking' is a car park or a parking place
'a smoking' is a dinner jacket or tuxedo

Can you add any more?
