Only at a Powerhouse gym will you see this.
"Your attention please!!!! This bicycle will not support anyone over 250lbs. Please use recumbant (pretty sure they mean recumbent :) ) bike. Thank you for your co-operation." I belong to two gyms: One (LA Fitness) is one I use for spin classes and low impact cardio exercises (ie elliptical) and because they have many gym locations throughout the country, making it very convenient for business travel. This is a gym that is geared more towards white collar business man, cardio bunnies and aged athletes. The other (Powerhouse) gym I go to is a weight training/lifting gym where pretty much every member looks like they just got out of prison or is ready to go to prison and have to turn side ways to fit through the doorway - I use this gym for weight lifting. Thus many of their cardio machines actually have to warn BIG MUSCLY dudes that their weight may not be supported! And, no matter how many times I see these things, they still make me laugh.
It's not about the bike
