Fitness; fitness; fitness, this is word behind which the whole world is running for and of course you may be too. One of the best for your quest is the Planet Fitness Gym that rooted into the fitness industry in 1992 with a rocking mission called “Judgement Free zone”. This was the real reason to put this fitness factory into the lime light that gathered two million people yielding a revenue of $100 million in a period of just five years. Adding to their prestige, it takes a seat as one of the best among 500 Incorporations in the world.
This gym can be called as “frill free gym”. It is really unique and fabulous. Designed especially for the people who want to work out in a simple way and who are not in need of a luxurious swimming pool or a club. All over the world, they have 30 franchises in 7 states on the East Coast of the United States. Planet Fitness has an interesting philosophy of being a “Judgment Free Zone.”
It is very good. When compared with the power house gym, the positive thing about the planet fitness is that there is no excessive cluttering of equipments everywhere and it is spacious. Since becoming Planet Fitness they have made some changes to the facility but the work out machines remain the same. The machineries belong to the brands of Cybex, Hammer Strength and lcarin. They have two complete sets of free weights. In addition to them another set of light weights meaning we have never had to wait for a dumbbell. Planet Fitness in Plymouth has a cute boxing area which is a room with speed bags, heavy bags and double ended bags. Gorgeous Graffiti works decorates the walls of the gym.
Planet Fitness Gym has a circuit room. They changed a wall and a door and made the aerobics studio into a circuit room. The advantage of this room is that it is very large in space and so along with the equipments there are some stability balls and resistance bands are also kept. This room is also ideal for people who are irritated by the huge workout room, the people weightlifting or older people who may not feel comfortable in the larger room.
There are 5 different leg press machines. In addition there are 2 crossover cable machines with every single piece of equipment to attach to a cable and 4 Cybex stations. Planet Fitness has plenty of benches. They have rubberized flooring. Hence it is more comfortable to work on. Due to the absence of carpets slipping off is prevented. There were about 50 different cardio machines including elliptical trainers, treadmills, bikes and stair climbers. All the equipment is Cybex except for the elliptical trainers, which are of the brand Precor. A circuit room is greatly useful for the beginner or for people who are working out 2 or 3 times a week who work their whole body each time.
There are plenty of toilets and showers including wheelchair accessible accessories. I was attracted to the fact that in each shower they have nice shampoo, conditioner and body wash and by the sink there is mouthwash, hand wash and lotion. There are hair dryers and you can rent a towel for $1.00. The men’s area has a steam room while the women’s area has a sauna. In addition to the lockers there is an area in the gym itself where you can store your gym bag or whatever you have brought if you don’t want to use a locker or the things are of little value.
Planet Fitness Gym will be wonderful for many, perhaps most people. The price is certainly right and the equipment very good. You won’t be disappointed in any area and it is absolutely economical.
