You know that will just give fat, out of shape people further reason to stereotype against big guys. There are better ways to be an ambassador for this hobby than looking like an ass, no matter how much contempt you may feel for Planet Fitness.
No, the best way to "burn" them is to turn their practices, customs and clientele into a nationwide/worldwide joke and have everyone laugh at THEM while they feebly attempt to alienate serious lifters and bbers from society and have everyone laugh at US.
Good going, Holy......I can;t enter Alabama for obvious reasons but will be with you guys in spirit.
oh give me a fucking break. the SELLING point for these gyms are 'judgement free zones', pizza mondays, bagel tuesdays, and free tootsie roll jars. people go here because they don't WANT to see or meet someone who can apparently lift weights and be successful in other aspects of life that don't require moving heavy things short distances. they are so far down one end it wouldn't matter if i started working out there everyday and was respectful and perfect.
look, if you're going to instal a LUNK ALARM in your gym, then i'm going to come in and video myself setting it off. excuse me for trying to have fun with my hobby.
Its funny how they have a "proper attire" to wear at their gym and if you are not wearing the required gym cloths they can not make you work out. Isn't that "judgmental" lol. They really contradict themselves...
Just like I assume most people here are into lifting and gaining muscle, I assume most of PF's clientele are out of shape and insecure. Their advertisements and mission statement alone should be enough to deduce that.
I worked out at a PF for a few months, early in my training days. it's the most hypocritical place i've seen in a long time, pizza mondays and bagel tuesdays? give me a break. i got yelled at once for deadlifting, apperently it wasnt permitted. i didnt listen. set off the alarm and left. its amazing for the judgement free zone to judge bodybuilders and olympic lifters... some of their radio comercials are a trip too, stereotyping big guys as not knowing anything about lifting. after i moved downstate NY i checked out a planet fitness and the place looked like a warehouse with 500 treadmills/ellipticals/etc.
they didnt have any benches from pressing nor any DB's over 50 lbs. ( the first PF i went to at least had this) get this, when i asked why they didnt have the equipment the response i recieved was " that equipment promotes the bodybuilding lifestyle, and we deem that an unhealthy lifestyle, so we do not promote it." I laughed in her face and walked out...
i refuse to ever enter one of those establishments again.
