That is what I heard too about them. I guess I will let me wife give me feed back on that gym. I signed her up but since it has no daycare I didnt want to sign up too to allow her to work out and we are not going to be making two different trips to the gym in one day. I will be a hope using the kinect with my fitness games and hand weights and floor.

My husband goes, mainly because it is about 2 doors down from his work. He says that that alarm does go off if anyone is grunting, but he doesn't hear it go off very often. He usually goes on his lunch hour and says it's pretty much older men and stuff, however, he has gone earlier in the morning and it's a different story. So, I suppose it all comes down to where the gym is located and time you go. I'm sure you could try it one time for free, most gyms do. He likes it just for the fact that there aren't a bunch of people walking around just showing off or making sure you know they workout. It's just regular folks trying to get fit.

We actually cancelled our Planet Fitness memberships. We found ours is so small that getting a machine at 5:30 in the morning before work is impossible. So on the hunt for a larger gym may go to Urban Active.

I belong to Planet Fitness. I joined in November. My friend joined with me. We love it. We go usually about 9am and never have a problem getting a machine. The past week and a half it has been busy as all heck but there's still plenty of machines. They have all kinds of cardio equipment, strength training stuff and free weights. There are some muscle bound guys that are there to look at themselves workout, but they hangout by the weights and don't pay attention to us fat chicks. LOL

I am having trouble understanding their arguments on youtube that people shouldnt go planet fitness. I am pretty sure when you sign up they tell you that there is no grunting or weight dropping there. When I used to go to the gym I would work out hard but not to the point of grunting or dropping weights. The pizza once a month thing is something I feel should signify that you had a good month of working out and one slice isnt going to kill you.. but these lunk heads have been saying i would rather drink my protein shake. well that fine no one is forcing you to eat the pizza.

I thought this was pretty wild since this guy triggered the lunk alarm at planet fitness. I think if it would keep like that out of the gym then its fantastic. I just fear for the employees safety when you have people like that flipping out.

I just check to see where the locations are and there are none close to me the closest one would be about 35 miles from me and that's not worth it...

Well I actually think that's a great ideal because like I said my son was doing it not knowing how to release the weights and it was annoying I think every gym should look into doing that but again I'm glad I don't hear much of that and I hit the gym 5 days a week and can say I rarely ever hear that

Do they have any good start up fees....I just a brochure in the mail two days ago about a new gym opening for 10 down and 10 a month....I was thinking of switching because for me and just one of my sons it's 47 bucks a month

Well I think their target clients are people that are not these oversized muscle bound guys. I was watching some youtube videos and hearing those type of guys complain about the gym because they set off the lurk alarm which is an alarm that sounds in the gym when anyone is heard grunting loud or droppig weights. The employees talk to them and warn them and if they continue to do it again they are out of there.

I don't I use our town fitness center where I'm at and I don't hear that at all....maybe we're not working hard enough...lol....but I had to teach my son how to use the equipment he would just drop the weights and that to be honest is a little annoying and he wasn't even trying to do it...

A planet fitness just opened up down the road from me and trying to see if anyone goes to this gym. I watch some of the commerical and they really do nail my demographics of why i dont go to the gym and why I hate the all the other ones. I hate listening to people drop weights and grunt so loud you have to turn and look. I guess they kick those people out if they are seen or heard doing that. Just give me your thoughts
