I was just wondering from people who ACTUALLY go and have a membership: is it worth it? How is all the equipment? How are the tanning beds?

This is the package I am interested in and was wondering if anyone else has it and likes it...

Please don't respond if you just have an opinion and you've never actually been there. Thank you.

I go there and i have the black card. The only complaint I have about planet fitness is it gets so busy in there, usually between 4-7 pm, that you cant even find a machine to use. other than that the machines are good and the tanning beds are good. I like the stand up ones they have there so your body isn't touching the bed after like a million other sweaty people have touched them. Tanning is usually pretty booked but you can usually schedule a slot during your workout.

I go there every other day. And it's a perfectly good place to work out. The machines are very good. The place is clean. It does get a little busy during the evenings. But, I go other times. No problem. There are people on this site that like to knock the place. But they're just knockers and would find fault anywhere.

Thank you!! I worked at a tanning salon before so I know how icky people can get lol so I'lll just make sure I clean it myself! But I mean, they offer just tanning packages at most places for $20/month so this is totally worth it!!....now I just have to get some motivation in my system!!!

I have been a member for several yrs now it seems between nov and april the place is packed at night from 4 to 7 machines are hard to get and tanning is usually an hr or more wait for 20 bucks it is what it is if your looking for a deal and a place to go to just work out then this is the place as for the people that complain about pf there are some issues that seem to always linger such as bad staffing all n all you get what you pay for

Depends what time you go. If ya go when school let's out you'll be waiting to use equipment. Other then that its ok and the tanning booths are great.

I usually go at around 5:30 a.m. It's not crowded. I never have to wait in line for any machines. After 6 a.m it starts to pick up. I tried afternoons & early evenings. It was too busy for me.

I've joined because I lived close to it. After a day I had to cancel. I prefer free weights, but their free weights section is pathetic. One squat rack, really? Not enough dumbells as well. Too many people during peak hours. I don't go to the gym to pick up chicks, but to workout and leave.
Powerhouse in Utica, on the other hand have much less treadmills, a little dirtier $33 bucks a month, but much more inviting. No, you don't get a free t-shirt, but you also pay upfront with no early fees.

If you actually plan to work out and are serious about going then it is okay. Like anything else you pay for, if you dont use it then its a waste. I find that going between 5 and 7am is the best for me, not to crowded and makes me feel great in the morning.

I belong & use it usually 3x a week. You have to be able to go in the morning or daytime. Evening is real bad I hear, hard to get a machine.$99 a year is a deal that can't beat. Nothing against FitnessMill, Powerhouse etc but they can't begin to compete with that price,

Music is kind of sucky so bring your own mp3 player & earpods.

Planet Fitness is for women and gay men, period.

Who cares if it's $10 a month if you're waiting for equipment or get thrown out for grunting or deadlifting.

Spend some more money and join a real gym.

Actually, the other steroidal gyms are the gay ones.
These guys cant build strength and size without injecting a phallic symbol into their azz.
Ill take the strongest guys at planet fitness that can pass a random drug test over anyone who can do the same at the grunting gyms.
You don't seem to have any idea of what can be achieved without drugs. The problem is, it takes more dedication than most people have. This is why these same pathetic people will cry "steroids" when they see a big guy lifting heavy weight.

Good luck getting big when you're at planet fitness and an alarm goes off when you try to force that last rep, lmao.

what state record lifters are at planet fitness?

Yes I do. I agree with you on the grunting, they are overdoing it.
I said ill take the strongest guys at planet fitness over the other gyms based on state record power lifters in the raw class. You look at these guys, they look like regular guys, no freaky muscle, no attitude, no bragging, good guys.You could not pick them out of the crowd.
There are bigger older guys that can compete with the highest percent of 20 yr olds in this area, they also train raw.
Experience in the gym (years) and the ability to analyze fairly, will give you the answers as to whom is roidin.
