I've been a member since early January. I joined planet fitness for the sole purpose of using their cardio equipment. The price a month is WAY cheaper than buying an elliptical, treadmill and stationery bike for my home. The added bonus is the fact I can use the weight machines and free weights too. They're also opened 24/7 which is wonderful!! The facility is always clean when I go. I've been on different days, all types of hours from early am to late pm, on weekends. I've never had a problem with the staff or getting on any of the equipment. I've seen reviews that complain about the tootsie rolls. pizza Mondays etc.. Really?? Don't eat it if you don't want it. Who cares if it's there. I have yet to eat ANYTHING while I'm there. Uh, that defeats the purpose of working out. BTW - they're water dispenser, machine, fountain whatever you can it had the best water. I bring a couple of empty bottles with me and fill to take back :). OK, back to the review...... I can think of a lot of not so beneficial ways to blow 10 bucks. I try to go at least 5 times a week. It's basically choosing me $.50 when I go. It's within walking distance of my home so I'm not spending much in gas when do drive from work or being out. Bottom line. Give it a try. If you don't like it, cancel it. I'm sure you've lost $10 a time or two and you didn't cry over it :).
I have been going to Iron Tribe north East for almost 3 months now and i can not tell you how much it has improved my overall well being. I would encourage everyone who is interested to at least speak with Maxwell or any team member to see if The Tribe is right for you. About me: I am in my 30's and was steadily increasing in weight and decreasing in health since i got married. The day I found out my wife was pregnant was the same day I stepped on the scale and realized I needed to not only take care of a kid, but start taking care of myself. I met with the team and was instantly encouraged to start taking action. I was by no means in shape, most everyone in the class was actually out of shape, but now we are all getting super fit together and it is an amazing transformation. Our class had everyone from the 20-something stud, to the 300+ 40 year old all working to get better. If the team members can't get you on board then just come watch the class and see the welcoming team interact with each other... it's amazing how much you will enjoy punishing yourself through each workout.
Signed up earlier this month, get this month to month no contracts, this health club is perfect. Beautiful, clean fitness center. They have it all. If you have kids they have a kids room with video games, slides, tables everything to keep the kids busy. My kids don't want to leave. As for me and my boyfriend all their cardio equipment have flat screens TV's with cable, to take your mind off the workout. My boyfriend likes the fact that he could play basketball and racketball. They even have a cardio theater, golf simulator, group exercise classes, and a WOMENS ONLY fitness center, the staff real nice, friendly and knowledgeable. Very helpful. Go Urban!!
