Having a gym membership is no measure of whether or not someone actually goes.

That said, reducing the barrier to first trying out a gym would be a universal benefit to society. People who might otherwise never set foot in a gym may try it out of simple curiosity, since there's no barrier to joining.

On the other hand, no barriers to using the gym will mean that ANYONE can use it. Homeless people in the showers, even more fat old people using it as a social club, hordes of retarded teenagers hanging out there to check out chicks and not lift.

Be careful what you wish for.

This. Instead there should be tax incentives for going to the gym

In all likelihood you would just end up signing on with a private gym anyway because "public gyms" would be poorly-kept dumps where the token low-income minority of your city hangs out.

Making everyone fit isn't really that great an ideal. It sounds like it at first but then fit people wouldn't have anyone to lord over.

Exactly this. I miiiiight be okay with subsidies/tax credits for gym memberships, but definitely not free.

France has outdoor calisthenic gyms in almost every city in the country. They are mantained regularly to ensure that it's safe to use, and the french government looks for new ideas from the public to add and improve already existing equipment.
Just last month two fixed barbells, one at 15 kg and the other one at 30 kg, were added to my local calisthenic park.

This is all part of a campaign from the french government to decrease the obesity rate in France, which has worked by the way.

That sounds like a pretty good idea. Calisthenic parks are definitely cheaper than full-fledged gyms. I know some cities here have parks like that, but it's funded by the individual city councils. We need something in America to deal with all these fatties.

Lol. You guys complain throughout the whole tread about taxes when obesity costs billions of taxpayer money.

There's a reason why even major japanese companies force their employees to lose weight. Healthier people means a better and mentally stable workforce and also decreases costs of insurance.

You guys have a reputation for thinking selfishly. These train of thoughts confirm it.

And guess what? Unlike what said. Calisthenic parks are full of low class youngster looking to get ripped, which then realize that getting ripped is a whole new fucking science. They realize that smoking weed will get them nowhere, and have to pick up the habit of going there several times a week and train religously.

I know many of them who claim that if it weren't for calisthenics they'd be either wasting their time with drugs and videogames. Some of them even have established new goals for their future, such us going to university to study sport science.

wow it's fucking nothing.

That's just one image of one part of the whole thing. Usually, calisthenic parks are equiped with everthing you need.

Some people can't afford a gym, so they have to rely on calisthenics. Why hating? You do your stuff, we'll do ours.

Obesity is one of the biggest drivers of preventable chronic diseases and healthcare costs in the United States. Currently, estimates for these costs range from $147 billion to nearly $210 billion per year.

I'm just gonna leave this here.

Let's try to imagine what this would be like.
equipment would be falling apart, especially in low income areas where people would die and there would be complaints of how the government doesnt care about them, and that the wealthy should subsidize their 'right' to work out
fat personal trainers employed due to not being able to discrimante against fat people
shitty employees because they have 0% chance of ever getting fired
DMV tier lines to use the squat rack
parents leaving their crack babies in the kids center for 12 hours a day
homeless people shooting up in the bathroom

Minus the barbells the park by my old house in NYC had a calisthenics station like that.
They are found at parks here rather than their own thing though.
