Episode 54: Planet Fitness Article Blows My Mind

March 5, 2015

Yes my mind is officially blown in episode 54. Blown to bits. I had heard of the Planet Fitness chain but had never been in one. I consider myself a pretty good judge of character with people and with gyms. I can meet a person and get a good idea of who they are within minutes. I can look in the window of a gym and make a decision even quicker. 

Most gyms these days are just plain awful. This is not my opinion but actual fact. Back in the day gyms were run by people who had a love of weights and the weight lifting culture. They cared about their product and the people who worked out there were family. 

Today you have corporate gyms and franchise opportunities whose main interest is bringing in as many people as possible so they can open as many "gyms" as possible. Weights are replaced by shiny machines, water fountains by juice bars and rows of dumbbells by rows of cardio machines. 

Sad. Very sad and the worst offender of all may be Planet Fitness. T-Nation does a great job of reviewing this castration of the iron culture in this article found here.
