I like Planet Fitness -- I joined because one was a new one opening by my home & they had cheap incentives to join.  I rarely go, but for $10 a month & open 24/7 it's a bargain.  I joined to work out at 5:30am, but haven't gotten back in that exercise time groove yet. Perhaps when it gets warmer.

They have a $20 a month option that includes the massage machines, I'm tempted to upgrade.

my daughter just signed up...my 15 yr old granddaughter is going as her guest...she is enjoying it..she loves working out...

During the summer they offer free membership for young adults to work-out -- if I remember correctly last summer it was for 15,16,17 year olds.  Just for the summer months. Perhaps your granddaughter will get to take advantage of that this summer :)

I have never tried it; but I have friends and family that have used; they all have different opinions about their experience there, so it is hard to tell. ???

I have never been to a Planet Fitness.  One has opened up in the town where I will be moving and I am considering joining because I do need the exercise.

Good luck with your goals.  I do water aerobics 4-5 days a week. :)

My wife signed up at this level. She hasn't used the extra stuff a lot, but she has used it. Another benefit to that higher rate is that you can go to any Planet Fitness location, where with the normal membership I think you are only permitted access at your home location.

I don't mind it but their whole "judgement free zone" thing is bullshit. People have judged me more there than any other gym I've ever gone to.

Who is judging you, is it the workers? Or the other people working out?  Sorry that happens to you, nothing is worse than trying to get or stay fit & people judging you while you're trying your best to achieve. At least you're there & trying...

I have always been a bit skeptical of that slogan. Obviously they have some semblance of control over the staff, but there is no way they can impose the "no judgment" mentality on other patrons. If I feel that an employee is 'judging' me, I can always speak privately to a manager. But if it is a gym rat looking down on me for having lesser abilities, what options do I really have? It's not like this is middle school recess.


I go about 4-5 times a week and I have seen ALL shapes and sizes in there. I'm not going to lie. I do notice people at the extremes because they do stand out - I see people who massively out of shape, but looking to improve; and I see some guys who are obviously on steroids. (Even overheard a couple guys in the locker room one day gossiping about another member who was heavy into steroid use).


When I see the extremely overweight person in the step room or the elderly person barely keeping up on the slow paced treadmill, my gut reaction is to send positive thoughts to them without gawking or judging. That kind of dedication is inspiring.  On the flip side (and in technical violation of the "judgment free zone") I am a bit internally judgmental of the guys who are more interested in showing off/admiring themselves in the mirrors or the people who are there for a social hour.
