Anyone else go to this gym?

I love it. I think its mainly an East Coast thing. I haven't really looked on the website to see where all the gyms are. I do know that there are about 250 locations. They're the next big thing thats up and coming here in NC. I think they've opened at least two or three in a 20 mile radius where I live.

I love it! It's always great to go into a new gym with brand new equipment. It's spacious, the people are friendly and their slogan is "This is the judgment free zone!"

I went with my best friend and her mom today. We did a mile and a half on the treadmill did the 30 minute circuit training!

:carrot:

I'm in FL and we had one when I was living in a larger city....it was nice...basically because it had everything I needed and was only $15/month...which is bargain pricing...though they are a franchise so pricing varies from location to location...also...they have no contract....so it's easy to get out of :)

We have them in KS too -- I went to one with a couple of my friends for a tour -- I didn't sign up because I have a gym at my apt complex -- but they did. It looked pretty nice to me. There were quite a few overweight women there working out. It was cheap too -- I think maybe $15.00 a month or something like that. Hey, looks like I was right -- from what gatoramanda said. :)

Oh man, there are none where I live! I've been wanting to join a gym but have never been and am afraid - I love this gym's slogan! I guess I can hope they start one here soon!

haha there is one near where I work but it has been a vacant building with a sign reading "low prices! call for details!" for about 9 months so I have major doubts that it is actually opening!

there are others around here, though, that seem totally legit! I'm stilll a hardcore Bally's girl bc after 3 years of dedication, I pay only $20 a month, so why give that up??

I'm glad you found a gym you like!!
We have a Planet Fitness like 5 minutes from us! I'm not a member, but have friends/neighbors who are and love it there. DH and I are going to join together when we pay off a bit of debt ;)

You guys definitely should. Everyone I've talked to that goes there LOVES it. And its amazingly cheap... with no contract and a fixed rate guaranteed for 5 years!

For those of you that don't have them close by, I'm sure its only a matter of time. They're popping up everywhere around here!

I go to planet fitness and just love it. It is open 24 hours during the week so sometimes I go late at night. When I signed up at the beginning of the year I paid $99 for an entire year membership! It is a really nice gym. Lots of machines, I never have to wait to get on one I want.

There is one here in GA. I loved it!! It was only $58 to start, $10 a month and I believe, $20 fee (annually, to lock in rate). There was no contract or anything. It was open 24 hours during the week, so if me and the bf got in a tiff, I was able to go blow off some steam.

Unfortunately, I moved and the location is no longer convenient :(.
