this is why we're a fat country. (and you don't need to message me about how this actually makes sense for people with handicaps, etc. i understand that and am happy that usa fitness was so thoughtful. i'm not being mean. it was just a flash in the pan thought.)

    Well, are we all forgetting handicap accessibilty? What about the unfortunate one-legged patrons? They can't be hopping up to the gym, now can they?

    Well, sometimes people who are disabled (bad feet, bad knees, maybe prosthetic legs) want to work out to develop their upper bodies.

    Now, your next photograph should be of a drive-through ATM with Braille instructions, so you can have a laugh at how ridiculous that is. Think about it for a while and you may figure it out. (Hint: Sometimes blind people ride in taxis.)

    maybe you're supposed to walk up the down escalator and walk down the up escalator

    This is in the middle of a strip mall in Point Loma (San Diego). 24 hour moved into this location well after this mall was built. It just happens to have an escalator in front of their area.

    I'm the guy on the low end of the escalator. Apparently some stunned tourist took this pic on the day I was signing up. This 24 Hour Fitness is located on Sports Arena Blvd in the Point Loma area of San Diego. I tore something in my knee years before doing heavy leg extensions, and ever since walking stairs hurt like hell. I could walk stairs gingerly, but the escalator really helped. This pic was most likely taken in 1998 or 1999, soon after i moved to San Diego. Returned to southeast Virginia about 12 years ago (today is 10/10/2012). Today my knee is fine. Never had it operated on, but I took up some low mileage road bike riding (which didn't bother it), and I think that may have helped with rehabilitation. But again, that was one super sensitive knee. - Jay K.

    While the admin of the web site is working, no question soon it will likely be famous, due to its feature blogs.
