  • No...There is room to spare so to speak. However it would NOT be good for him to get on if he's OVER the weight limit.

  • I would have him do some water exercises and loose a bit before he gets on your sisters machine. It isnt so much about the machine breaking as it is how hurt will he be if it does.
