Could those of us who are "obese" get free gym sessions via a doctor's appointment?

It wouldn't really be free.But do you think people are obese because they can't afford the gym?

Or are you just trying to get free gym membership?

I was wondering if this was possible for people (like many Sugdeners) who are technically "obese".

I think you'd probably have to be clinically obese.

Thatís over BMI 30 which is a 6 foot man being 16 stone or so. In the world of powerlifting and strongman thatís a weight thatís bordering on shaving all your body hair off, taking tanning drugs + clen, eating chicken+broccoli, training in a sauna with clingfilm round your abs and applying to go on love island.

If your fortunate to have a good medical insurance plan here in the USA, they will have options to have free memberships to pretty gyms with no knurled bars and dumbellys to 50 pounds.

We can. We also aren't far from being able to claim disability.

I've joked on occassion that i will start claiming disability and other benefits and then i can be a full time fatty and claim to be a professional strongman.

The irony of competing in strongman whilst claiming disability benefit appeals to me.

Not heard of gym sessions (yet) but you can get prescribed a Parkrun, and there's no charge.

That said, no ones squat ever went up through doing Parkruns

Get the crazy card script because someone bullied you at work. Get a friend shrink to give you a grill session of what might be questioned to get the paper sighners questioners shrinks to pass. Note: they will have detectives taking pics of you lifting boulders, but then again, that may prove you sre crazy?
