why?

24/7

Cheap

Hydromassage has been doing miracles for my lower back pain

Free tanning so I can look more tone

Plenty of cardio equipment

One location near my work another near home

Free bucket of tootsie rolls so I can get some simple carbs post workout

>Free bucket of tootsie rolls so I can get some simple carbs post workout

Fucking Tootsie Rolls saved my workout tonight. I always do 30 minute intense minutes on the stair climber before I begin lifting. Some reason tonight I felt like ass after. Grabbed a handful of Tootsie Rolls & was able to return to my workout like a beast. After all these years of never taking the Tootsie Rolls.

TOOTIE ROLLS SAVED MY LIFE.

Dude its the best fucking thing on earth, you can try to use it. Just sign those clipboards and grab the tag above it. They never ask to see my ID card, half the people who work there are dyel teens who don't give a shit.

planet fitness has limited equipment but its cheap enough to have it as a dual membership if you have one closeby

its 70% female ot male ratio, all the dudes are weaklings so you get all the attention, and the rest of what the OP was saying about the small perks. Gym is always clean and really well maintained. The only problem with the gym is for really heavy days for seasoned lifters, and doing legs can be challenging because of the lack of variety. Dumb bells go up to 75s, so it's enough weight for high volume workouts or for people with only a year or two lifting under their belt I guess. I grunt all the time and am decently loud with weights, but they rarely care. Only got lunked once for flexing in the mirror and when I looked at the front desk they were just giggling about it.

hes probably fat and wants to lose weight, but still, should save it for after lifting

Are you completely unaware of how Planet Fitness markets itself? It actively discourages self improvement and shows prejudice toward anyone interested in serious lifting( removing squat racks ,banning ordinary gym behavior etc.) and punishes those who are serious lifters.
>>
>>35803233
They literally just ask you not to drop weight and make birthing noises. If you can't help from doing either of those you might have autism.

Who cares if they make a killing off fatties, those fatties are keeping the prices low so I can lift on a budget.
>>
>>35803233
I know that they do that shit but don`t people just use the gym for their equipment. Unless people go to the gym for something else i`m missing
>>35803251
this guy explained it better than me
>>
>>35803251
The weights you can drop also only go up to 75 lbs; if you can't control that then post a pic of your feet and pussy because you're a girl.
>>
>>35803233
or maybe planet fitness business model isnt built around serious lifting at all. have you ever considered that?

woops! forgot the link.
the owner is an older muscular dude. he's pretty cool. Open 24/7 too.
There's actually no PFs around here, but there's a chain called Freedom Fitness which is the same price for membership and doesnt have all the retarded rules
>>
>>35803424
i personally go on the chair for 15 minutes then the bed for 15. My back feels fine after that. I also squat over 4 plate for reps when im there and no one has ever said shit. they dont have a lunk alarm like the american one though

Planet Fitness is literally for stupid+poor casuals who have no idea what they're doing and don't care about legs. In a way, I'm glad that they exist desu because it lures you retards in and keeps you there so my gym isn't filled with more DYEL's. Again, enjoy your no gains after 4 months of lifting you poorfags. Those leg extensions, ellipticals, and 75lb dumbell bench presses might get you to entry level ottermode at best.

I had terrible posture and extremely tight hammies from sitting at the computer for all of my teen year, hydromassage helped so much.

The whole reason PF even exists is because of people getting offended.

So is 24hr fitness, and they have free weights and don't hate you.

If you step outside and look up, you will notice a source of free tanning. Please continue to stare.

>Those leg extensions, ellipticals, and 75lb dumbell bench presses might get you to entry level ottermode at best.

By that time, PF will have served it's purpose as a starter gym and the entry-level otter can move on to a real gym if they're willing to spend a little extra.

I know you're shitposting, anon, but you might want to try leaving out why PF is actually good for a new person.

Fixed that. So are 70% of gyms in any major market. Why hate on Planet Fitness? It's like saying McDonald's has a monopoly on cold shitty food. I promise the Burger King next door sucks just as hard.

>>35803269
this. barbells only usable for curls maybe and smith machines. where the fuck do u need to drop weights then?

PF is a dank meme, I like that it makes so many people legit mad.

I just got a membership to Gold's, this good?

I tried out my local PF before, old people hogging shit and talking while just sitting on equipment, too many people in general making it a pain to get anything done, lunk alarm pisses me off. I gotta drive 12 more minutes for Gold's but god damn it's worth it desu.

I go to PF almost every night. Empty. The one I go to has a variety of machines And a large free weight area I go at night so the guys that work there are really cool. There is literally not a single bad thing about it.

[spoiler]The guys at the desk were teaching some people how to deadlift properly.[/spoiler]

>>35802939
Wtf is a "black card"? Do they have different memberships?
>>
>>35803158
PF literally advertises themselves as "not a gym" and is for people that would rather eat pizza (they have free pizza once a week) than work out. They ran a while ad campaign making fun of people who are in shape or who take fitness seriously
>>
>>35806266
I got a membership at Gold's when I started lifting in November and regret it. It's the closest gym to my apartment which is good but it's often crowded and feels like a goddamn meat show since everyone is dressed to the 9s in namebrand fitness apparel. Chicks coming in taking selfies, gaggles of faggot-ass college aged kids doing a 50/50 split of work/talk around the racks and benches.

I started bringing my own 2.5s because if I didn't I'd have to hunt around for some in the lifting area which has weights of all values scattered around racked and on the floor.

honestly I wish I had shopped around a bit more and checked out one of the local gyms, especially one with a team usa registered weightlifting coach. My free PT session at Gold's was some shithead telling me to never bring the bar below my chin during OHP

>feels like a goddamn meat show since everyone is dressed to the 9s in namebrand fitness apparel.
Not gonna lie, I'm an obese fuck right now getting my life together and shit and starting with my body. Those people dressed like that I like because I want to look like them instead of the fat mass that I am now, kinda like inspiration of some sort. Everything else is the opposite, not crowded at all and tons of equipment to go around, it's great.
>>
How do you do power cleans (cleans in general) and power snatches (snatches and stuff like that)?
With power snatches the wide grip simply doesn't allow to put the weight on the floor quiet?
