Fat and Fit: Weight limits of popular exercise equipment

Models were selected from a survey of commercial-grade exercise equipment at a local gym, and from information provided by readers and manufacturers. To suggest other equipment for inclusion on this page, send a note to tg-weightlimits at dea.spamcon.org.

If the table grows beyond a manageable size, I'll turn it into a searchable database. Any DB admins out there care to take it on? -Tom
