I just joined PF this afternoon. The guy that signed me up as a black card member and showed me around the place was nice enough, but the trainer wasn't much help. I am 62 I have never used machines to lift weights, when I was active duty we could go to the gym for a weight class times a week and the trainer walked us through the exercises. We could also go to aerobics classes three times a week. I am loosing muscle strength and I intend to put a stop to it, to get back some lung capacity, improve my cardiovascular status and bone density. Yes, I know I have my work cut out for me.

Black card member because a chair massage in the mall is $5/15 min or some such, so doing just THAT twice in a month, pays for itself, and we have heard the hydro massage is much more expensive than that. It's our reward for working out.

We don't use the other stuff much, but want to start using it more

I just joined PF. I haven't been to the gym yet I hope to start next week. I have the black card membership. I just wanted to get the most I could from the gym to test it all out.
What does everyone think of the gym....good or bad ?

Hello all, new to the group. I just joined Planet Fitness today and got the Black Card membership. You pay $1 today and the $19.99 is billed for the month to your bank or credit card. This works for me because I have a guest that will continuously work out with me and perks always work for me. Good luck all.

I'm a black card member. I spend lots of time on the road during the week all around the state so it is essential to have the ability to step into a club and work out where ever I am. I also am trying to get some of my clients working out as well. This allows me to bring them to the gym and show them a routine. Most of the time they purchase a membership after a few outings.

I am a black card member. I wanted to be able to bring one of my nieces or friends along for a workout when the urge hits them (rarely). Also I travel quite often and wanted to be able to workout when I am out of town.

Black Card Member, I like the hydro massage and the guest option works perfectly for when my daughter comes home from college breaks. There was just no other financially responsible way to get her gym time so intermittently

I joined in Oct 2015 with the 5 down 10 a month. I can't afford a black card membership. Plus I don't go as often as I should. Though massage chairs and beds would be nice. Maybe at Christmas time they will offer the free week of black card benefits.

Hi! I just signed up 2 weeks ago. I got the black card so I could go to another club if I'm out of town and so I could bring my relatives and friends as guests. I'm having trouble getting people off their butts to come with me, though.

I really want the black card but can't afford to commit to a year contract... Maybe once the bills are under control I'll look into it... I wish there was a way to be able to pay a couple dollars to be able to use the hydromassage when there's not a waiting list of bc members. That's really the only reason I want the bc lol. But for now, regular member to start :)

We have something like it. It is a little stall where it is supposed to energize your skin cells. I have not tried it. I have used the hydrating massage beds though. Oh my feels great after a workout, puts the massage chairs to shame. I see why there is usually a wait for them.

I got the regular, thinking that I can always upgrade later. There are only 2 clubs in my area. I am not sure that I would use the other extras. At our gym, we have this red light room. Anyone familiar with this?

I got the black card. My gym had a special of no intro fee and actually it is still half per month of what I was playing at my other club. The massage chairs are awesome after a workout.

Regular Membership because I usually workout alone and I do not plan on asking anybody to work out with me. And If I am on vacation I would not be thinking about trying to find a Planet Fitness in the area.

Black Card Member, I have not utilized the tanning yet. Figured I would wait till I get close to where I want to be weight wise. I have been a member since February and I am really loving it. I currently have access to PF and another gym but mostly use PF due to it being just a block from work so I can go at lunch 5 days a week.

I'm a regular member, I like that it is only $10 a month and I am not locked into a year's membership. I go to UWM, and during the school year I have free access to the fitness center there. I am enjoying Planet fitness though, and might stay on, because of it only being $10 a month.

I joined as a Black Card member. I decided to go with that membership for $19.99/month because I am able to bring unlimited guests and can go to any location. Haven't tanned yet..maybe once I've lost some weight.

My hubby and i started off as $10 members. Since we have 2 boys we cant go at the same time during the summer months so we had separate memberships. Then we were Best man and Maid of Honor in a wedding so we both went up to black card status strictly for the tanning - we had looked into local 1 month tanning packages and they were similar in price to upping the membership for a full year! It only made sense to tan where I was working out. Now that I'm not tanning it is time to reassess.

when I joined, i became a black card member, because I worked in one town and lived in another, so I could hit the work towns' PF after work on the weekdays and my home location on the weekends, but i've since changed office locations and work and live in the same town, so i'm not sure I need the black card anymore.

But since blue cross refunds 150 of the 240 I spend on it, its not a big deal :)

I started with the $10 membership. I got one for myself and one for my boyfriend.I got two incase he decided not to go. Since the club was close to my house and we wouldn't go anywhere else and also if we didn't go it would be easy to cancel. We've been going for over three months now and love it. I've upgraded mine so I can work out at a newer gym by work. He still has is $10 one and has started paying for it instead of letting me pay for it. I mentioned getting rid of his since I have the black card now but he said he wants to be able to go by himself if he wants to.

Hello!

I chose the regular $10 membership because I didn't think the extra amenities were worth it to me. I started for only $1 and there is no contract. I love that it's month to month because I am student teaching and I don't want to feel badly about paying a lot and being stuck in a contract.
If my fiance wants to come with me then I can upgrade to the Black Card or he can do the month-to-month as well.

you may say that i'm a dreamer, but i'm not the only one. jlennon.

I also chose the black card membership and I pay $19.99 a month.

I chose this membership because it allows me to bring unlimited guests, so my husband and I can both go together and he doesn't have to have a membership.

I also choose not to tan, (1) - because I feel like I'm too over weight and I'm not familiar with weight restrictions on the tanning beds. (2) - because I burn very easily and I'm afraid of skin cancer or other skin problems down the road.

Planet Fitness is great though and our new gym is very nice. I love it! :)
