Human Weight Machine — Takes 'up with people' to the next level

Long story short: Richard Hilton's Gymbox, a fitness club in London's financial district, last week replaced metal plates with human weights: "people of various masses waiting to be lifting by exercisers," noted an item in this week's Sports Illustrated.

"The liftees, who wear black leotards marked with their weights, range from a 66-pound female dwarf to a 342-pound man. 'A lot of our members felt that lifting metal weights was boring and not especially motivating,'" said Hilton, whose human weights shout encouragement to  lifters as they pump.
