London gym offers midgets as weights

A GYM in London has replaced its dumbbells with human weights - including dwarves who shout encouragement to motivate exercise.

Gymbox at Bank - in the centre of the capital’s financial district - introduced its bizarre fitness regime with human weights ranging from a 155kg man to a 30kg female.

The human dumbbells wear black leotards with their weights printed across their chests and sit on adapted machines to let the weightlifter visualise what they are lifting.

Offensive...to say the least! the fact that midget throwing in bars has been made illegal I dont see how this spectacle managed to rear its ugly head!!!

While part of me finds this quite amusing... and I have a few mates that could now find work as weights... this is wrong!
