Gym Review – Planet Fitness

Believe it or not this gym was created by a group of friends who were drinking a bottle of tequila one night after their gym had gone under. The group was trying to decide on what to do next, after a few shots someone had the idea of “creating a gym for everyone”, A sort of “judgement free” zone where this is the creed that Planet Fitness lives by.

Planet fitness offers all of the great amenities of a large gym without the large monthly bill. Each gym is stocked full of plenty of cardio equipment, free weights, and various other exercise equipment. Many gyms have tanning booths that offer guests the option to add the privilege to use them at an extra monthly fee.

The main selling point to planet fitness is this “judgement free” zone everyone who joins this gym will feel comfortable whether you are a first time gym user or an expert with exercising. Planet Fitness is one of the only gyms that offers personal trainers at absolutely no cost for as long as you need. These trainers will help you set up an exercise program to follow and will guide you on the proper technique for each exercise.

Although this is the judgement free zone there are some things that guests may find to be judgmental. The first is there is one golden rule that each guest must follow, no grunting or no dropping weights. This could be a turn off for many who are serious body builders who like tossing weights around the gym. Another issue is that many of the free weights only go up to a certain limit, since Planet Fitness is geared towards women many of the equipment is geared towards them.

Overall the judgement free zone is a great value for the money, with plans starting at as low as $10 a month with usually a $39 down payment Planet Fitness provides one of the best workout environments for the monthly fee.…
