New Chicago gym for overweight individuals

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

There's now a gym specifically for people who are overweight by 50 pounds or more.

That's the idea behind Downsize Fitness--a business started by a Chicago entrepreneur.

Francis Wisnewski, who has been overweight his entire life, says he knows the embarrassment of traditional gyms and wants members to feel comfortable while exercising.

At Downsize Fitness, there are no mirrors inside and the windows are fogged.

The first locations opened in Chicago and Las Vegas in 2011, and expanded to Dallas in 2012.
