This comment, and ones like it, are the reason many people are too intimidated to go to the gym - people they know that people are laughing at them. Everyone has to start somewhere. Truth be told, my wife is overweight and rude comments and stares at the gym have kept her from going back. Some people are simply rude and insensitive. Do you expect an entrance exam before someone is allowed to join the local fitness center? Or are fat, old, unattractive, and weak people supposed to just buy a bow flex and fend for themselves in the privacy of their own homes? Some of you need to stop working on the abs and work on your maturity. I have nothing against overweight ppl, but pls wear appropiate clothing when in public. The woman was severly overweight , but wore a spandax shorts and a sports bra that made her look rather ridiculous. Its like a girl keeps compaining guys keep look @ her like a piece of meat when she consistantly wears mini skirt and low cut shirt.
