I would be too embarrassed to ask there, but on the weight machines not the 30 min circut ones. There is a knob to turn 0, 5, 10, 15 and below is a hole then 30, 50 etc. Here is the question if i have it in the top hole and the knob turned to 5 is that 5lbs? And where is the 20lb and 25lb?

It turns out that a lot of bodybuilders/weight lifters are offended by the "I lift things up and put them down" ad campaign. They claim that it contradicts their "no judgment" philosophy to portray individuals with muscles as dumb. <BR> <BR> I see their point. But I also think that Planet Fitness is marketed that way because they're trying to encourage people who are strangers to fitness to join. I think it's their way of saying "you can feel comf...

I've been calling in a stair step machine in the tracker but it's not the same as the other stair steppers I've seen. You kinda step up and down on it but it's a big machine. Every PF I've been to has them in the front row of equipment. Any idea what it is called? :) And how do you track it?

Same thing happened on the arc trainer. I don't want to have to go back to the treadmill as my only cardio.... any ideas?!?!?!

I am just curious for those who have the 30 minute express how you track your fitness. I know it says the circuit takes 30 minutes, but 10 of that is changing stations. So, I track in cardio as 20 minutes of circuit training. I usually warm up on the elliptical, so I make up the 10 minutes. I have not bothered to try and log all the strength exercise. Usually I forget to count anyway! So, what do you do?

What was the deciding factor in your joining Planet Fitness? <BR> For me it was both location and price. The location that I go to is between where I work and where I live.

She'd left her belongings in an unlocked locker. While we hope everyone would be honest, reality is that there are some shady people in this world. Invest in a lock! It could save you time and money!

I can't do that everyday, but I do want to get some cardio in each day. Today I did a 2 mile Leslie Sansone walk. This takes 32 minutes including warmup / cooldown and stretching. Great way to start the day! <BR> I am going to try to get some cardio in each day, not just gym days. What do you do?

My name's Alisha and I go to the PF in Gastonia, NC. I have had a membership there for almost a year now, but after the first few months I was unable to go back for quite a while and have since gained back most of the weight I lost.

Now I go because I want to do something with my life and I want to inspire others in my family to do the same. I have been going for just ...
