Heading to the gym can be just as daunting a task as the workout you are going to do.   But a new Dallas Area gym is hoping to change that.   Downsize Fitness is a selective gym in North Texas that caters to people who need to lose 50 or more pound of body fat.

When members are interested in joining the gym they are weighed and their body fat is calculated before they are admitted to the gym.   Fit men and women who try to join are directed to other gyms.

The idea of the gym comes from the fact that many overweight people don’t like the traditional gym atmosphere.   The new gym opened in September here in Dallas but has had successful gyms in Chicago and Las Vegas as well.

Dallas was a logical choice as it has one of the highest rates of obese people in the country.

    I really like this idea. It is very dreadful to walk into a gym feeling like the only one who is actually overweight.
