    I personally love running stairs - no matter if you're talking indoors - like the example shown, or stadium stairs during a work out.

    I have to say though, that the fat people I know personally do everything they can to absolutely avoid stairs or any sort of exertion. Instead of the escalator, they'd hope to find an actual elevator - - - and then they'd complain if they had to walk too far to get from their car to anywhere. They choose the drive up windows and don't care how much gasoline they burn waiting in lines for their Starbucks or fast food.

    That's pretty mean. Plus, given a choice, I'll always pick the escalator (I work out enough) and I'm definitely not fat.

    This would be a kinder/more fun way to encourage people to use the stairs.

    stair takers reduce pollution and facility operating costs and they get a free workout. stair takers are sexy.

    I worked at a hospita that was just renovated. Totally gutted and redone. And I couldn't believe it but they literally made it impossible to use the stairs.

    The upper floors went down to ground and out a door you couldn't re-enter. The basement stairs did the same and made it impossible to connect to the upper floors. Our lockers are in the basement as was the cafeteria. I couldn't believe a hospital, especially one that was just renovated, would make it so impossible for people that want to be healthier.

    When I started college (during "the great energy crisis" you know) men were not allowed to use elevators. Somehow it was OK for women to waste energy though. They were even turned off in the men's dorms.

    Escalators should be geared towards the crippled, elderly and anyone willing to pay a small fee to ride one.
