    (Rant) So prior to Covid, I decided to get a Planet Fitness membership. The gym was 2 blocks from where I was staying, and membership was about $10 a month.

    So I am getting my presses in one day, and suddenly this Pearl Harbor type alarm goes off and scares the crap out of me. WTF?!! I look up and its a lunk alarm that is set to go off anytime someone grunts ROFL In other words anytime real men want to release some testosterone.

    They claim the gym is a judgment free zone (which is why they don't have scales lol), but then they go out of there way to humiliate real men from grunting when they hit the weights.

    Hilarious video of real men purposely setting off the lunk alarm


    Discuss.

    Sounds like a gay play place to work out.

    Planet fitness dont want serious lifters as it chases away their main income stream: women and gym goers.

    It's a joke, for people that want to go to the gym to ease their conscience but not actually do anything to get in shape.

    It was the only gym nearby for me for a couple years, so I went regularly, they had great cardio facilities and well maintained areas for stretching and calisthenics, which many gyms lack, but shortly before I left they got rid of the benches, and bars for deadlifts. They still had the plates around for leg presses and smith machines, but the transition away from any kind of heavy lifting program made it pretty useless for me.

    In the years I used the gym, I never heard the lunk alarm go off. I thought it was just a marketing element there for show.

    The alarm varies in sensitivity. I set it off several times. Here is a vid of a pen setting off the alarm

    You're never going to be able to bench like a true Sherdogger training somewhere like that.

    Anyone who uses the term "real men" 3 times in 1 post isn't a real man, imo.

    Real men know that.

    Yeah the one at my gym was in the front by the entrance, and the weights were at the opposite side of a huge building. The pf near me was a converted Buick dealership, the free weights were in the back where the service bays used to be, the lunk alarm was front of the showroom. I didn’t know it had a decible trigger, figured the staff had to manually trigger it.

    Yeah I wanted to weigh myself one day, and I was informed that Planet Fitness does not believe in scales because they don't want members to be shamed. They even serve pizza on Tuesdays lol
