- There are now gyms for people who are 50 lb overweight or more.
- “Downsize Fitness” which started in Chicago, Las Vegas and Dallas offers a non judgemental encouraging environment in providing fitness, nutrition and support for those other than a size 2!
- There are no mirrors, the windows are fogged and even the equipment is designed for heavier people.
- Toronto is following in suit. Our plus size gyms include “Fit Zone plus” that bills itself as fitness for the rest of us offering yoga and Zumba
- There’s also “Yoga for round bodies” at the Halcyon wellness centre
- These gyms are a real motivation for those overweight who are self conscious and need to be in a gym that feels inclusive. No spandex, 6 packs or hard bodies exercisers to contend with
