    I blame their shitty membership contract crap...hard to get someone to sign their life away when the 24/7 gym down the street doesn't have a contract at all.

    Agreed.

    Crap. Just like most of the wussy franchise places.
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    I remember getting yelled at for doing deadlifts at Planet Fitness for the 1 day I was a member. I responded with "fine, I'll go do power cleans". Their response was "that's fine, deadlifts just aren't allowed because they make too much noise/are intimidating."

    Clearly they do not know what the hell a power clean is.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?
