The day I walked into Planet Fitness I weighed 315 pounds. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and I wanted to do something about it. Joining Planet Fitness may have saved my life. Since the first day I walked into Planet Fitness and started doing a workout program, I’ve lost 50lbs and have dropped several clothes sizes! I feel great. Everyone who sees me now tells me how good I look. All I can say to Planet Fitness is thank you for a great place to work out!
This gym is a joke. I thought my membership was cancel back in may but in june 13 i check they still charge me for the annual fee so i went in person and ask them why am i still being charged ? They just said oh did u signed anything i said yes i said on the screen thats it. Also my monthly payment is on june 17 so i asked them so am i still gonna get charge this month too and they said yes. Being charge due to your system fault ? What a joke. What a big disappointment with this gym after 3 years membership here. Never sign up planet fitness membership again nor recommend to anyone.

At my home Planet Fitness, I have had no issues. However coming here, I experienced feeling uncomfortable. I just started to use a machine and someone asks me if I am using it...of course I am?! He then proceeds to stand within 2 feet of the machine with his arms crossed, legs apart, staring. Unwilling to be "gymtimidated" (though maybe in the past I would have been intimidated to stop), I finished my 3 sets. The issue with this is that I brought this up to the staff and the staff looked at me with annoyance, denied that was "gymtimidation," and turned away to ignore me. The phone then rang and he looked away toward the ceiling averting my gaze.
Even during the sign up process, when she signed me up, there was No Hello, No smile, No eye contact, it was Basically a " sign this and yeah, go ahead"..... I didn't need a jump up for joy response but a "Hello" or "Welcome to the gym" would provide a sense of professionalism. I've seen maybe 1 or 2 members of the staff that greet their patrons, I'm sure there are some Good staff members but not from what I seen.
I was diagnosed with autism when I was 7 years old and I have been bullied badly, even out in public. So when I got my membership in March of 2013 I was scared of getting bullied. Been going since then and NOT ONCE have I gotten picked on. The staff doesn’t care. They watch out for me. They greet me with my first name. ‘Hi Jacob, how are you?’ I feel safe and I feel independent. I put on muscle. I LOVE Planet Fitness.
