Fat people can not own fitness franchises! How friggin’ ridiculous is that?! I’m all for entrepreneurial spirit but if you put a fat person in front of a table that is for a fitness based franchise you will go broke.
I understand that the target market for Curves is fat low self esteem woman but at some point you have to show that you make progress. You can’t just have a bunch of fat women rolling around the gym floor for years on end. There needs to be hope that there is fit healthy body in sight. Curves should showcase fat people as their poster children but former fat people who actually became fit.
The women in the photo is well over 200 lbs…and I’m being as polite as I can. What the hell can she teach me about being fit and living a healthy lifestyle…shes not walking the walk. All she looks like shes doing is eating and not even stepping foot into the place shes promoting. Or maybe Curves has feeding troughs in the locker rooms for after you roll around like a happy little piglet.
As a fitness professional that advocates at least a simple sembelence of fit and healthy living I can’t imagine that any business plan would advocate placing a woman as big as a house in front of a fitness franchise… now don’t get me wrong I don’t think “Barbie” should be out in front either, having her breasts knocking you over. Fitness is all relative…but it is very apparent that there is no fitness here…only fat. So I guess the new tagline for Curves is: ” Where the Cows come to Play” or “Fit to Fat…we don’t care!” Either way this is just wrong! Tell me what you think.
