i typically work out in the middle of the night, so i never get to see daytime shenannigans or NYRs/DYELs doing weird shit. BUT, i finally decided to take a daytime vacation and went at 10pm, just to see the gym when its a little busier. it was weird seeing other people in the gym, especially someone else doing deadlifts - the guy was doing reps with about 450lbs.

right in the middle of the cable machine, taking up four spaces, was a DYEL doing cable flies on a bench that he had drug all the way across the gym, AWAY from the 15lb dumbbells that would be the equivalent of what he was doing with the cable machine. every time mr. deadlift grunted up the weight and dropped it, DYEL cablebro would shake his head and make angry sound effects. he soon remarked to his other DYELbro about how he wasnt going to get a membership past the free week, to which straightbrimmed hat DYELbro nodded in agreement.

wtf is wrong with people, and why doesnt anyone like having large guys moving huge weights around to show them what they could be if they work hard and eat right?

I don't know why everyone here hates Planet Fitness so much. You bros don't remember the dark days before PF got popular and it was like January 2nd forever. When I used to go to Bally's there was always a steady stream of pudgy nevergonnamakeitass motherfuckers doing infinite reps on 10lbs. dumbbells in front of the racks or doing weird exercises with the plates in the free weight area. PF is a failure magnet, just don't go there and appreciate that they soak up 90% of the people you don't want to see at the gym.

Yeah, I belonged to a PF in university. I only went at night and the guys on the desk didn't give a shit about deadlifting.

Finally quit when I came back from Christmas break and they're removed almost all the freeweights to make room for more machines. This was probably four years ago now. Spent my final semester paying a friend of a friend ten bucks a month to work out in his garage. In addition to his power rack and weights, he also let us use the fridge and a communal industrial blender as long as we cleaned it out.

I honestly miss that garage a lot.

>>35789056

Because they don't want to get "big". Because then they'll look muscular, and not feminine. And if she's not feminine, then she loses her self-worth. Because for women, their worth is determined only by the man they can attract. Because our culture (and most others) see women as instinctively less valuable, for some bullshit reasons. And women only value each other by the quality of their mate; and shallow, ethereal standards of beauty and lifestyle. Which means most only care about being thin, delicate, and fragile like porcelain. Or they go full-retard and think being fat as is somehow the superior choice because is "defies society." Even thought they just become a different kind of obnoxious burden. So the few women who do break free and get strong as treated with contempt by those who followed the crowds. The best women of course don't give a fuck, and are cool for it.

And yes: I am mad.

I used to work at this shit hole.

I would get high af and go into work just to sit down, check people in, and watch fat people attempt to work out.

Not calling out those who are actually trying.

Just those fat fucks who would come in during pizza day with their fat family and eat a whole pizza to themselves, do the 30 min circuit, and then leave. Not coming back until next month.

I have so many horrible stories from that place.

P.s.

Since these businesses are usually privately owned the general digression of the owners is;

"I own this place therefore I get to decide who is judged and who isn't."

As this guy rakes in over 200k from each of his 5 locations every year.

The gym isn't bad at all. I really like it, actually. Only downer is that you have to make due with dead lifting and squatting in the smith machine. I guess it also depends on WHY you're lifting too. I'm not trying to get fuck huge on steroids, and am mainly lifting for aesthetics. Works perfectly for me. 10 bucks a month and it's 5 minutes from my house.

It's a gym for people who don't workout.

It's also just DIRT cheap. Free to sign up, $10 a month, open 24 hours. Honestly if you're doing basic lifts/maintenance its not a bad option. But if you want serious gains look elsewhere b/c lolnobarbells.

You belong at PF you fucking dork.

You should never say shit like "I'm not trying to get fuck huge on steroids" unless you are retarded or have a vagina.

Don't get me started on lifting in sandals.

You shouldn't even be wearing sandals in Planet Fitness. Normally I would encourage sandals in the gym shower to prevent athlete's foot, but no real athlete has ever touched the shower at a Planet Fitness so that's probably not a real concern.

PF has already sealed your fate to never make it.

As someone from germany I always laughed at Planet Fitness. Now that I am moving because of university I realized that it is really hard to find a gym with a big freeweights area, a powerrack and a bench and maybe a platform. I mean I would like bumperplates (preferably colorcoded because it looks cool) but that is just too much to ask. Most gyms have A LOT of cardiomachines, a lot of useless machines, TRX band area, "functional" area which is comparable to a kids playground, sunbath, wellness area, rehabilitation area (mostly focused on back injuries) and other shit. I swear they have so much meme shit it is not even funny but most of them don't even have a rack.

I mean seriously who the fuck goes to a gym to have a "functional" area where you throw around balls and do pushups ? Or who uses those TRX bands. Not even crossfit guys could use this fucking gym because they have no bumperplates and not even a fucking rack. And the best thing is they charge 30-60€ a month which is crazy. I am really frustrated right now I feel like there is not a single "hardcore" gym in my area.

Bro, pls.
>>35794390
It's behind the counter. Mine only sets it off when you drop weights because you were obviously lifting more than you can control. Otherwise, it's bad for the weights, it's bad for the floor, it's a meme.
>>
>>35794480
Smith machines do not engage stabilizers the same way doing the actual lift does. I guarantee you'll squat one plate less when you hit a real rack.
Also, the weights are locked in a vertical line, which is sub-optimal for some compounds.
You are, in fact, weaker than somebody who lifts the same weight with a real rack. Just because the weight is static doesn't mean the way you bear the weight isn't dynamic, fuckwad.

How heavy is heavy? The heaviest I've heard is 80 pound dumbbells, and that just won't cut it for me. I've also heard most of them lack power racks and bench press benches with a bar. Is that the case in your experience? Because I would call those pieces of equipment essential, and without them it wouldn't be worth joining a PF.

>>35794807
If you're lifting at that level then what are you doing at a Planet Fitness? There are also powerlifter gyms, you know.

I'm not, but you said that the weights are heavy. I wouldn't say I require a powerlifting gym, either, my 1rms are only 325 for bench, 415 for squat and 525 for deadlift. I'm not pulling 600, I'm not benching 400, I'm doing weights, for the most part, that I've seen others do in every gym I've ever been a member of (two university gyms, Goodlife Fitness and my current public municipal government gym). I'm a bodybuilder, but I'm not a powerlifter, and I would say that while my weights are great for the average person, they're not extremely impressive for anybody who's serious at all about lifting.
If you're defending PF as a convenient casual gym for somebody to get their doctor recommended physical activity, then I agree entirely that this might be the case, but what was said was that the weights are heavy, and based on what I had heard, they're not heavy, and they omit important pieces of equipment. Is that true or false? I ask because, as I stated above, I haven't been in one before, and have only heard what these gyms are like.
>>
>>35794892
There's a fair bit of stuff they don't have. My PF goes up to 80lb dumbbells, for example, and there are four Smith machines and plenty of flat and incline benches, but one decline bench and no bars. But if you walk into other gyms here at twice the price, you'll find a lot of similar shit you don't like at your level. Categorically disregarding Planet Fitness is a meme in that case, you should be disregarding all casual gyms, which make up about 70% of the market here.
>>
>>35794852
Ah, that makes more sense. I find it surprising though, to be honest. Maybe because I'm Canadian, and it's an American thing, but all the gyms I've been a member of, and all gyms I can recall even visiting, have had dumbbells that go to 110, with the highest in a commercial gym (non powerlifting) was 140. Almost all the gyms have had power racks and benches and free bars (one gym I visited several years ago in Dundee in Scotland only had a smith machine). So would you say it's normal for most American gyms to forego power racks and to only have dumbbells that go up to say 60 or 80 pounds?
>>
>>35794930
I'm a retired guy now, but I used to travel a LOT in the US and Canada for work, and I can tell you that the only US place you'll find gyms like the one you're describing making up any more than like 50% of the market, between national chains and local gyms, are cities with a big university (like K/W Ontario) and Texas. Lifting at an advanced level, not even a competitive level, is a niche in most places.
>>
>>35794960
That sounds reasonable. I can definitely see the utility in Planet Fitness in that case. And it's funny, right now I live in Newfoundland, which has a pretty huge fitness community proportional to our population, but the other place I lived in Canada for a long time was Kingston, so you hit the nail on the head with that one. I wonder if the university gym I visited in Scotland is representative of most gyms in the UK as well.

Different culture, Canadabro. I know a kid in Nottingham who has a bitch of a time finding a place to work out. His gym for years had most of what he needed, but topped out at 30kg barbells, and when he needed to go up, the owner just told him it was time for him to find another gym. It wasn't like when Scott Herman threw a Youtube tantrum outside of his old gym, but he was pretty pissed. This is a kid that fought through years of rehab and setbacks and PT and shit to even get up to 30kg and he loved that place. In my Planet Fitness, I'm there right now waiting for the wife, there are 40 treadmills, about the same number of ellipticals, but not one adaptive motion trainer. Six about machines, no free bar.

Fucking nailed it. That DYEL isn't going to make it. I remember when my buddy Tom started coming with me to the gym, the first few sessions he wasn't really feeling it but still tried to stick it out. The third day we came we walked in and saw a big black dude squatting 350ish for reps, and Tom said that's when it clicked. He saw that guy and thought, "damn, I could do that someday. That's what I'm working towards."

He didn't think "that guy's intimidating and an asshole" because he's not a fucking retard and he actually has a shred of ambition.

This. "I'm not trying to get huge, I just want to be aesthetic" it's the same fucking thing, except one involves roids. You want to get bigger. Lifting at a real gym instead of being a retard won't turn you into Ronnie Coleman.

And if you think deadlifting and squatting in the smith machine is anywhere close to the same as the real thing, you're a retard.
>>
>>35794699
Yes, there's a great way around the deficiencies of a smith machine. It's to use a real fucking barbell instead.
