In case you are in the market for a fitness center, listen up, as Planet Fitness if seeking your business! Planet Fitness is the newest chain of gyms that have the purple logos and hassle free membership rules. Remember back in the 80’s and 90’s when signing up for a gym membership was like buying a car? There were all these papers to sign, and they wanted a deposit, then you had to have a credit check, or you needed to give them your bank account details to automatically withdrawal your monthly fees from.
It was just not necessary. Thankfully, in 2016, gyms have come a long way! They realize that many people simply cannot afford to spend $90 a month on a membership. They’ve also figured out that many members just don’t enjoy being “sold” anything. People don’t want a gimmick or sales pitch, they just want to get healthy.
Low and behold, Planet Fitness has covered all of these bases.
These fitness centers have swept the nation, becoming one of the largest franchises in the United States. The main draw to Planet Fitness is that the environment is clean, and the members aren’t big, ole, beefcakes trying to hit on you. There isn’t any mindless grunting into mirrors on the wall either, so it has really gained a large following rather quickly for those reasons alone.
You don’t have to be in Crossfit, or an exceptional athlete to fit in at PF.
Seeking Alpha reported that there’s a little something for everyone at PF, from free pizza and bagels, to massage chairs, and tanning beds. They have their own “judgement free zone” where they are committed to making every member feel like they belong; which is pretty cool. Memberships are dirt cheap between $10 and $20 per month, and you can get quite a lot. Check out your local Planet Fitness to get started on your new body, and probably make some new friends!
