duel meaning

i was at my gym tonight and they had flyers posted all around, advertising a new class.

the signs said "DUEL: not for the faint of heart."

that had to be a typo, right?

*addendum: i guess this wasn't as obvious to everyone else. my obsession with puns is apparently excessive. to be more clear: i thought the flyer would be vastly improved if it the slogan were written "not for the feint of heart." no?

    you don't think it's some sort of weird aerobic dueling class?

    No. I'd be more afraid of a duel than a dual, right?

    i smiled when I finally got the whole thing. but that's way too nerdy an observation for a public blog, no?

    The issue here is that the sign is correct but not as clever as it would be if they had gone for the pun, but with the pun the sign would actually have been wrong- although hilarious.

    It wouldn't have been hilarious. It wouldn't even have been mildly amusing. What is this, retardville?
