      I was reading something today that shocked me, it was about some gyms banning skinny people from using their facilities.

      What are your thoughts about this? Do you feel that it is right to ban a skinny person from using the gym?

      I suppose in a way it's not a bad thing if the person is what we would define as skinny.
      You can lose too much weight and make yourself ill.

      No, because skinny people need to be fit too! Maybe they want to gain muscle, or maybe they want to keep of the pounds? Who knows, but it isn't fair unless it's like specifically for over weight people.

      That's a pretty bold statement to make.
      If you owned a Gym and someone turned up who you knew was prone to heart attacks,would you let them use the Gym ?

      no skinny people or fat for that matter, who are prob more prone to heart attacks,should be banned from a gym.
      i imagine anyone who uses a gym gets hungry like myself after
      who are these people rthat think these things up?
      everyone is an individual and should have the right to do as they please,we are not a perfect race and come in all shapes and sizes

      is it gyms that just focus on losing weight? Because skinny people need to build muscles you know.
