Breaking the Rules

I started laughing when I read this sign in a hotel fitness center.  Now I know I am a rather large guy, (aka a fat man) but I do 30 minutes on an elliptical trainer or treadmill five or six times a week.  My doctor was not as concerned about my weight, as she was happy about my being active.  

Discontinue use at the first signs of stress.  Isn't putting yourself under a little bit of stress an essential of getting enough exercise to do improve? 

Do not use alone - that explains why a lot of gym members never go.  

I have no doubt the lawyers wrote this sign.  


  1. Oh, please! The only item that makes any sense is the first. Ah, lawyers.

  2. I just signed up for another year at the gym last night; 7 years of weight-bearing exercises for my arthritic body has paid off.

    I am never alone there; it's always busy.

  3. Walk on the treadmill with hope in your heart...and you'll never walk alone!

    (per the rules, with apologies to Gerry and the Pacemakers.)



  4. Oh those pesky lawyers and their zany overprotective tendencies.
