New gym only accepts members who are 50-plus pounds overweight1/7/2013
There are a hundred reasons to skip the gym, but feeling like you're being judged by the other members shouldn't be one of them. That's the idea behind Dallas' Downsize Fitness. The upscale chain has everything that the trendiest gyms do, except negative attitudes … and mirrors. Downsize is mirror-free and requires that any potential member is "fifty or more pounds overweight." That kind of supportive atmosphere is welcomed by its members, who might feel self-conscious in more traditional fitness centers. Downsize founder Francis Wisnewski knows what his clients are going through. "I've been overweight my whole life," he said. "I was embarrassed to go to the gym myself." [Source]
