that was hillarious!!!

so thats a planetfitness huh, whats with the gay 'you belong' banners?

After watching and learning a bit more about PF, I'll say it's even worse than I thought.

I came to the conclusion for myself a long time ago, that I was not a commercial gym kind of person. Nothing I have seen has done anything to change my mind about that.

I have seen some very cool serious gyms, that I might would like to train at, but even then, I hate having to wait, or schedule my workouts around other people. Home gym is where it's at for me.


PF is exactly whats wrong with so much in our society today. They cater to the lowest common factor, and lead them to believe that they are doing good enough.

I love their sign, "You belong." It's true, the people who go there do belong there. With all the other underachievers who want to feel good about themselves while not doing the hard work to excel.

I don't think you have to go beserk while working out, but you can make some nosie, and on occasion drop a weight a little. If that never happens then how hard are you really working?

I'll stand by my earlier appraisel, and say it again. Doc, they are doing you a favor. Move on man. That place only looks like a gym, don't be fooled.

To both above: that's my long term goal, already have a proposal worked out, trust me guys I would love nothing more!!!

Default End rant/

I walked into Planet this afternoon, head held high, and spoke to the GM (he's one of the good ones there). I explained how uncomfortable the regional staff has been making me feel, and that I thought it in everybody's best interest if I trained (full time) elsewhere. He didn't want to, but he did agree it was best, and I cancelled the membership.

He shook my hand, commented on how well the whole thing went down, thanked me for it, and I walked out, head still held high.

I went back to my other gym about 20 minutes away from home, walked in to see it is now a full on Worlds Gym, and was actually "home". Great session followed, and I am just glad to be done with the Planet Fitness garbage.
