The Planet Fitness Store is an American franchise of fitness centers based in Newington in New Hampshire America. Founded in 1992 and has 1000 locations in America and recent expansions into Canada and Dominican Republic, the Planet Fitness store has done its part in keeping people healthy for 24 years especially in our time where recreational facilities such as being outdoors have been replaced with seating at home and doing things while seated or lying down.
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.
In March 2016, Planet Fitness partnered with STOMP Out Bullying,[23] a national organization dedicated to bullying prevention, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America to launch the company’s national philanthropic initiative, The Judgement Free Generation.[24] Also in 2016, the company donated more than $1 million to the program.[25][26][27] Planet Fitness has also provided mini "Judgement Free Zone" gyms to Boys & Girls Clubs in Manchester, New Hampshire[28] and Pasadena, California.[29]
I really like working out there. The trainers are very helpful. The best thing is that it doesn't ha...ve the locker room smell that turns me off from working out. I like being able to go when I have the time and not when the gym has the time. I'm shy about working out in front of people and at Anytime I can go when there is very few people there. See More

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.
