    Went to Planet Fitness today

    First impression: the whole thing is a "wolf in sheeps clothing" type of thing. They know these people won't stick it out, they just want the money. I actually feel bad for the people who dish out all the money, just to end up quiting. Of course that's their fault for being lazy, but it's still sad to see. The little hottie behind the counter told my boy to fo sit at the table, so she could come talk to him about the membership, and avoid all the customers, who won't be there in two months, she said. The fee is $20/day, but my boss signed up, so I was his guest.

    Now to the equipment. It sucks balls. No barbells, and the dumbbells only go up to 60lbs. Topped out the fly machine at 305 for reps, the dip machine at 285(I think) for reps, and curled the 60's while some gay guy told me "you're rockin' it!" LOL. Skull crushers were boring, as the cambered bars only go up to 60lbs as well. Most of the time I just fucked around, curls here, some machines there.

    The plus side....well, there is no plus side if you're serious about working out. The environment and rules are not conducive to really pushing your limits.

    I do recommend it if you want to feel like king kong, while everyone stares at you LOL. But be forewarned, you will get a lot of gay admirers.

    I tried to be mindful of that thing, plus the db's only go to 60, so there's no reason to drop them anyhow.

    I need to start a gym with that name. No machines allowed.

    Powerhouse is my home gym, but I wanted to see what the fuss is all about.

    Its your fault for paying so much attention to lazy pathetic peons.

    You = King Kong = HA HA HA HA HA HA.

    What planet are you living on let alone planet fitness ??

    That's even funnier than you pretending not to embrace gay admirers.

    Yeah the day you would have the balls to do that is the day pigs fly.
