      Wish I had a place like that near me.

      Stuck at PF for now though. At least they have a squat rack....

      haha. Just got pf nearby. I go to xsport and we constantly rip on planet fitness. Free weights go up to 60 lbs and the employees could give two sh1ts about fitness. Oh they have pizza parties and candy as you walk in too. Fridges are stocked with soda. /end rant

      From the thread of Lazarus...

      My wife wants to join the Planet Fitness near us. Her reasoning is it's cheap and open 24 hours, which is great. I'm also running out of weight at home, so I need a gym as much as I hate going, and they still have free weights (although no squat racks and dead lifts are verboten ) . However this "no Lunk" BS makes me leary. I'm not one to scream and yell when I lift but I also don't want to get the stink-eye if I grunt or exhale loudly when needed. I'm also not a big dude, so I'm not looking to move tons of weight.

      Has anyone maintained a membership? Has anyone used them for a travel gym? Is it adequate as far as weights go? Thanks!

      I used to go to one, though, it was before the complete ban of racks. They only had one squat rack, but, I was allowed to squat, and deadlift. Granted, I don't think I pulled more than 225 in my time there and I only went during the dead hours of the middle of the day; I didn't think it was that bad of a place.

      I actually just saw a PF commercial for the first time last night and man, they should fire whoever came up with that marketing. My wife commented that basically all they are advertising is that if you fat and intimidated easily, come here and be around other uninspiring people. Perfect way to get motivated. I had to give her the sex after that.

      And their marketing is mostly why I'm leary. I don't need hand-held, I am not a unique snowflake. I just want to keep to myself, lift some weight and go home.

      Sad thing is that there are plenty of people out there that eat that stuff up, along with a lot of junk food.

      Well, to be fair, that should appeal to a pretty broad market. You don't get a lot of customers by saying "this will require patience, dedication and self-discpline."

      Right now, that's an upgrade for me. My dogs keep trying to spot me, and they just don't have the knack for it. That and it'll get my wife comfortable with using a gym.
