Plus-Size Gyms in the US "Strongly Prefer" Obese Clientelle
Downsize Fitness, a small chain with gyms in Chicago, Las Vegas, and Dallas, specializes in working with people who want to lose fifty or more pounds. While the gym does not ban skinny people, they do make their preference for working with the chronically obese clear. Buddha Body Yoga in New York City has a similar policy.
And of course, if you are like me, you can put a gym in your basement that bans everyone but moi. C'est la vie!
