I work out on a pretty shitty piece of equipment (bench, dumbbells, and barbell) in my garage at home. My wife suggested that we join this gym that’s new in town and asked that I “check it out”. I’m speaking about Planet Fitness.
So I go to their website. First, they have a policy that is totally descriminatory against weightlifters. Period. You grunt, you are out. No deadlifts allowed. You will be banned. Dumbbells are limited to 80lbs. Seriously!? I was shocked. This supposed to be a gym, right?! RIGHT?!
Then…I found THIS gem on the "About Us pages:
We give away 35000 free t-shirts every month!
Have you seen PF’s famous candy jars filled with purple and traditional Tootsie Rolls?? We go through over 750,000 each month!
On Pizza Nights (the first Monday of every month) we go through 3000 pizzas. That’s 24000 slices per year!
The second Tuesday of every month we serve up free bagels to our club members! Come on by and get your own!
Only at PF!
