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.

PF Alhambra is a tidy, affordable gym with neat lockers, huge parking lot, free pizza and tootsie roll. LoL. Staff (Mark and co.) are competent, friendly and professional. They should be given a raise! Because they are always dependable. PF is without flaws, the things I abhor is when the machines are out of service, artic blasting A/C on the far back end and the crowded peak hours (M-W; 6pm), however, not as terrible compared to PF Mid-town Olympic blvd branch.The gym goers are friendly, nice and respectful. Similarly, there are good looking fit women in this gym which kinda motivating. Overall, I highly recommend this gym. I can suggest they add more new machines or install a wall  pull up bars like most gym do. I would like to make it happen.

After being in the area for a bit...compared to other planet fitnesses, I am underwhelmed by the customer service here.  The customer service here shows that the "gymtimidation" motto of Planet Fitness isn't true.  I honestly chose Planet Fitness because of 2 things: the motto and the membership value.  I chose this gym brand, because I've had experience with feeling uncomfortable at the gym due to people approaching me uncomfortably, treating my time on machines as less valuable, etc

Anytime Fitness provides a tattoo artist at its monthly training events and covers all expenses.[20][21] The company will also reimburse anyone who submits a photo of their tattoo of the logo and describe why they wanted the tattoo.[19]
Not too bad for the price. I am a black card member and I enjoy the 30 minutes work out section because it allows me to go in and out of the gym without wasting time waiting on a machine.... however this location supposedly does not give out the free T-shirt and towel like it stated in my confirmation email when I first signed up.... so that's why I gave it a 4 star instead of 5...

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
