Planet Fitness

Thursday, November 06, 2008

I joined Planet Fitness as a "Birthday/Get my butt in Gear" present to myself. For those of you that want to join a gym but, do not want to pay ridiculous club fees, this may be the gym for you. I am paying only $20 a month for:

Free use of all Planet Fitness Franchise Locations
Unlimited use of massage chairs
Unlimited Guest Privileges
Unlimited Tanning
1/2 Price Cooler Drinks
PF Black Card T-shirt

Now, the only downside (that I can see) to this gym is there are no cardio classes.

I took advantage of an introductory training class. I got to learn all about the machine weights and how to use them (I was very fearful about the machines). The trainer was informative, patient, sweet... and he had a great smile! just saying.
I am really liking it so far, and wondering why I was so fearful of the machines... I mean I have been working out for with weights for about 3 years now. I guess anything new or different can be scary but, this should NOT have been a fear for me.

Anyway, Go to their website and see if it is right for you.

    Cool! Sounds like a great deal. I love my classes though. I'm not sure I'd be able to give them up. But this would be so awesome for people who just love to work out with machines. :)

    I'm glad you are enjoying the gym! You're getting a great deal. I'm also very fearful of machines. I really should sign up for a training session to learn to use them. Too bad your gym doesn't offer classes. Unfortunately, that would be a deal breaker for me because so far that's ALL I do at my gym. Like I said, I really should start using the machines to challenge my body.

    Thanks for sharing Gabs. I have been looking into rejoining a Gym. I have Cardio equipment at home so this may be a good fit for me...pending there is one in my area. I will check it out.

    That sounds like a great deal!! We don't have Planet Fitness here, but the Y will cost me about the same because of my low income. I am planning to join the Y before winter really begins----it will be my Christmas present to me! I love the machines!! The rowing machine is my favourite, but I love all the weight machines too. It's been a while since I've been there, so I will take the orientation class too when I join to get a refresher on how to use everything correctly.
Thanks for the reminder!
Hugs, Leslie

    I'm so excited for you! Have a great time with your membership!

Bummer, they aren't around me. And I could sure use something to get my motivation back too!

    Good for you!!! I'm still intimidated by the machines, but I just don't know why. I know how to use most of them, I just think I should be in better shape before I use them. How crazy is that???

I was afraid of the elliptical too, until I used it, and now I'm addicted to it.

Funny creatures, aren't we?
