I just went to the Lucille Roberts in Forest Hills, NY. I loved the idea of a woman's only gym that I could walk to & the combination of a work out place & a weight loss facility in one.
I mistakenly thought the staff there would have received sensitivity training. I intended to join tonight until the woman giving me the tour looked at the paper they'd asked me to complete which included the amount of weight I want to lose -- I wrote approx 140 lbs. which would bring me down to a healthy weight range & she loudly exclaimed "Wow - you want to lose that much! That's a lot of weight!
I guess it's doable." I walked out the door & will find another gym in the area.
