It's supposed to have a tolerant atmosphere where fatties aren't ridiculed. You can also join for either $10 or $20 a month.
What's your opinion of this gym?
It's where I go. It's good. They have a helpful staff, plenty of machines and I never have to wait for one. If you're serious about working out it's a good place. My trainer is a grandmother, former olympic gymnast, has a body that would put most half her age to shame and is a real ball buster. But I'm not there to be coddled, I'm there to stay in shape.
Was she an American gymnast?
I couldn't rate it helpfully until I know how cruisy the showers are.
who's r1's coach?
I say Olga Korbut.
She is American, I googled her but she didn't medal do it's like she was well known. Honesty, she intimidates the hell out of me. But hell, that's her job and I can't argue with the results.
lost 80 pounds by going there every day under a year.
So how cruisy is Planet Fitness?
R7 I can only speak of the one I go to, but not at all, or at least very little. Then again, I'm weird, I'm there to work out.
Which one is that?
Sorry for the bump, but I'm wondering if anyone has any more info?
One has opened around the corner from me and I'm thinking about joining...but I've read some awful reviews of other locations and the national chain. Broken machines, unplanned charges showing up on your checking account, no trainers, etc....
Most importantly, do they have steam rooms?
New York Sports Club is going to a model of "no towels in the locker room" You have to ask for them at the front desk. Is there anyone who goes to Plantet Fitness in NYC? Do they put towels in the locker room or do you have to ask for them?
Isn't it all pink green and purple inside? I don't think I could deal with that. The cheap price is attractive but that means it gets all the ghetto garbage. Plus I'm sure they insist on hitting you with extra loud rock and r and b.I content to listen to that shit.

NYH&R used to blast loud ghetto music. I left when my membership was up. I couldn't take it. I couldn't hear my own music over that crap.
It allows men in the ladies locker room so it is on the way to becoming an all male gym. Great place to go to get away from fraus.

Very, when I'm skulking around there at 3 A.M.
depends on the location but the pros are cheap and lots of machines. The cons are often unsanitary locker rooms and they tend to be Frau-magnetized.
I think if they stopped serving free pizza the first Monday of every month, the frau population would decrease by 89 percent.
Free pizza at a gym? That's like happy hour at an AA meeting.
I can't imagine doing a workout, feeling good about yourself and completely negate everything you just did by grabbing a few slices of pizza on your way out. They also have bagel Thursdays or some shit like that. I know it's because they want people to remain fat so they keep going to the gym but how about some hummus and veggies or something for the nutritional savvy?
In the locker rooms, (both of them) there's all the sausage you can eat!
Really, really depends on the location in terms of the cleanliness, cruisiness and clientele. The one in near me doesn't have a lot of free weights. I was a member there for a while before joining the local YMCA. Didn't like the "one enormous room" set up, but that's not why I left.
Or a really good smoothie with some protein powder? This is Planet Frau by any other name.
R6: may I ask if you are male or female and your age? Your answer may give me hope.
It's a basic no frills gym. Equipment is in decent shape, but its just standard equipment, nothing fancy. Some free weights, but not a lot.
Staff is nice. Locker room, at least at the one near me, is kept clean. Of the members, about half have never worked out before. The other half knows what they're doing.
