I've been using this gym for years and in the past have been very happy with the equipment, staff, location and price of membership. But NOT anymore. I got familiar with staff members I was comfortable talking with and working out in front of. Just since the start of 2011 there has been tons of employee turn-over which just makes it less pleasant for the gym user since the staff is being trained or not qualified to do certain things. I hear the manager talk down to the employees, bossing them around and ordering them to do things like he is the Gym God himself. For a "judgement free zone" why doesn't he give his employees a little slack. If they enjoyed their job a little more it might make the overall atmosphere of the gym a better place. A mean manager makes for an unhappy staff which in turn reflects upon the gym users. Attitude is everything, and this manager needs an attitude adjustment.

I've canceled my membership due to the discrimination against certain races, nationalities and religions. I didn't want to support a company that is discriminating some group of people. Even if everything else was perfect and even if it

Not the easiest membership to cancel. You have to fit certain circumstances. Also, make sure to send certified mail. I sent them a letter via regular mail, thought my membership was canceled, and then 4 years later get a bill for $1000. I received no notifications, no bills in the mail and was not using the gym. Then, four months before the statute of limitations would have ran out, they mail me a bill for a grand.

had a heart attack right after I joined & had signed a auto renewal when I went to get out of contract well of course you cannot get out without huge buyout fee & the yearly renew fee is staggered so that you have to also pay that before your contract runs out & you cannot let them know that ahead of time you have to physically be on there site at a certain time to get out of the contract as of now I have been there 2 times already & still have to go back what kind of deal is that just a bunch of owners that are hard up for money never mind that I am on a fixed income may they get what is coming to them like maybe they will have a heart attack one day & have to deal with a bunch like themselves I have given of my time & money for many years & always had the faith in human nature that if you treat people right you will be treated the same well have I had a big kick in my teeth but I will not change the way I treat people some of these clubs are all about themselves may you have a nice day We Blackburn look it up planet fitness

Planet Fitness is a great gym for it's price. For only $10/month, you are getting the world's best equiptment. There are also nice tvs for entertainment and tanning booths if necessary. Their motto is "No Judgement" so you feel very comfortable working out.

The hours are great too for those with very busy schedules.

I used to like it here...clean, well-kept, good price. But lately the crowds...they just keep coming and coming. When things are so bad you have to wait in line 10 minutes to use a treadmill, you know it's getting ridiculous. Perhaps they should raise the fee just a tad or something...but it seems everybody is joining this place and they're bursting at the seams!
Another issue is the comfort there...it can get hot & stuffy often. You shouldn't be sweating like a pig after only a couple of pullups. The weight room especially can get uncomfortably warm. They realy need better air-conditionaing and/or some fans.

Pros: Price, clean

Cons: People packed in like sardines. Uncomfortably warm.

If your looking to get in shape, then Planet Fitness is for you. They offer a plethora of workout equipment such as treadmills, bicycles, freeweights, and other muscle strengthening exercises. The staff at this gym are very helpful, and have helped me learn how to use the machines properly. I highly recommend this gym for anyone who is trying to get in shape.

The treadmills here can get kinda annoying if your a big guy, but all in all, it is a nice place. One of my friends will join next month and gonna start weight training. He was going to join, but he broke his arm. He is going to take weight training and see how good they will help him rehabitilitate. This is a great place to workout.

Planet Fitness has everything you need to get in or stay in shape. The gym and locker rooms are spotless, they have all new equipment - a good mix of free weights, dumbells and machines, plenty of cardio equipment, and it's not overly crowded. There is very little gym "attitude", no meathead power lifters, no glitzy stuff, no juice bar, no aroma-therapy, no day care, no sauna and no aerobic classes. If you are looking for glitz this isn't your place. If you are looking for a good place to workout with good equipment, a great location and great prices, it's worth checkng out.

PROS: facility, equipment, location, price
CONS: I really don't have any gripes - let's just hope it doesn't go down hill

My sole reason for joining this Gym is because of the incredible monthly membership fee. They had an enrollment special at the time that I joined. It was only 10 dollars a month with a 29 dollar enrollment fee. If you go on their website they currently have an even better special that allows you to enroll for only 99 dollars for an entire year. Very Cheap. Of course there is a down side to the affordable fees. They don't have a daycare so If you have young children you can give it up. They don't have any aerobics classes. The treadmill and stair stepper can get a little monotonous.
