    There is one at my gym like that. It's really deceiving because from far away it's very prominent but when you go closer to inspect it gets closer to your normal image :wtc:

    in my old gym, they used to have in the aerobic suite, mirrors which hadnt been fitted properly, and it was like a hall of mirrors, you'd be huge in some and tiny in some others, and it was random, they soon had it fixed but it was hilarious

    when I was younger, there was a certain spot at the gym I was at that would make me look like a greek God. the lighting from the overhead lamp and the spill from the nearby doorway combined with the mirror was incredible! Although it was cramped in the corner near the cable machines I'd still look my best.

    getting back home it was a different story :wtc:

    makes sense. if they make you look thick (the opposite what many gym go'ers want, they're more likely to keep comin back

    snap fitness, one of those corporate 24/7 chains. its good for me because i don't go until late at night, uRec is closed by then.

    its not obnoxiously curved but if you look at the mirror standing perpendicular to it and look at the lines in the cinderblock walls and compare them to the top of the mirror, the lines bow down some.
