Watch this.
paying by the pound

abcnews investigative report. skinny hot chicks are offered more discounts and lower rates than overweight ones.

this PISSES ME OFF

Are you serious? The people that need the gym to improve their health/fitnesss are charged more? So if an obese person can overcome the embarrassment/shame or whatever of working out in public they're going to have to pay more than the skinny hot chicks? Seriously, one gym gives a 'model discount'. Because hot chicks bring in the customers. Funk Dat.

hardly surprising, the same thing happens all the time in clubs and all establishments where look is important to attract customers. Not cool but that is the way it works
