On Thursday August 11th, 2011, Atlanta Business RadioX Hosts Dr. Adam Shafran and Lee Kantor had a chance to chat with Joan Denziot whose Super Sized Cycles were recently featured on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition.
When Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition’s host and trainer Chris Powell was looking for a bike for one of his trainees, James, he turned to a good friend of the Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy Show, Joan Denizot. Joan created Super Sized Cycles when, after gaining some weight herself, she was informed that she wasn’t the right size for a bicycle.
Instead of copping an attitude, she created a positive movement of empowerment and self respect, designed innovative, comfortable bicycles able to hold 550 pounds, and set out to remind us all that “Zize”, like life, is all about attitude! She says “A surprising, overlooked solution to fitness; bicycles offer a fun, easy way to get in shape, for all sizes of bodies,” and she was happy to help Extreme contestant James Garrison bike his way to losing over 300 pounds in one year.
