They said to me:  "We really don't think you fit in here . . . by he way . . .. we are getting rid of all dumbbells over 45 lbs and think you really should check out NYSC"   
isnt it some kind of discrimination?

Yeah, that was all well and good, until they got rid of 655 of the equiptment and all dumbbell over 45 lbs etc. 

So they were like - "You don't fit in, probably should go somewhere else, BTW - we are gettig rd of everything" 

Why would I want to stay there? 

I pay more now for NYSC - but like it there a lot.

I took a look around one. They actually modify all the plate loaded machines so you can only fit two 45 lb plates on each side. The leg press was like sawed down to only fit 4 plates a side.

Planet Fitness is looking for one type of customer...The kind that pays, and never shows up..

Someone should file suit against them for discriminating people who have muscles..

Haha, who would bother with such light weight for leg presses.

Its the truth!

NYSC rocks.   No one ever bothers you, hot chicks to stare at, clean towels, cool guys to lift with or become gym friends with, what else matters? 

PF SUCKS!

actually they re nailing the meathead personnality right on the head here.

Still i think it's stupid to lift in a gym , when you can lift at home... Going to the gym is attention whoring, and wether you look like shit or good, you re going there to show off your insecurities. Gyms are for idiots who dont have nough money to buy themselves a house and dont have enough space to build their own home gym.

Its true!

I used to go to a Golds' that was changed to a PF and they bounced out all the hardcore lifters from day 1.

It was horrible.

I go to NYSC now, and pay 69 a month vs 10 a month at pf, but it is well worth it.

I swear lol. I went for a day with my sister's bf, who had a membership. The db's weren't as bad as the one 333 went too, but still pitiful. 65 lbs was as high as they had. The broad at the desk asked me twice if I was sure I wanted to get a guest pass. Either I wasn't the right clientele, or she knew it was an awful place and was trying to warn me. Grin

Sounds like you don't have a gym nearby to workout at.

They want people to pay the $10 a month and never show up.  The way they figure it - 1 meat head like me turns off 4 potential deadbeat fat asses. 

So get rid of me, get 4 suckers paying each month who never show up.
