    Usually just lighting.

    I would think it would be in the gyms best interest to make you appear smaller. Fat people is where it business is at.

    i noticed that too...i think they do, so when you finish working out on there **** or with their trainers it makes u look as though you've packed on the pounds, when in actuality you prolly gained like .17 lbs of muscle.

    erm, in most gyms the female section has shrinking mirrors and the male section has growing mirrors, my gym has changed layout so the shrinking ones are where men usually are, to easily tell if urs do this. Stand far away and move ur head side to side and you should morph and look really wide.

    Dude...my gym DEFINITELY has that. There is a dumbell section from 5lbs all the way to 150lbs. It goes quite a long way, so there are 3 different mirrors, I swear to you, on the first section, I look normal, then walking down to the 35-70lbs, I look bigger, than at the 70-150lb I'm the biggest. No lie. Even in the back of the gym, near the squat racks, the mirrors make you look wider. And when I do tricep pull downs or use the cables, there are two, one is in the 5-30lbs db section and the other is in the 35-70 section, and when I did cable curls in the 35-70 mirror, I was like wtf, there is no way I'm that big lol.
