    That is just stupid. As you said, if you're not dropping weights or grunting... you're probably not pushing hard enough. What are you suppose to do? Go there and have a brisk jog and curl some 15s and call it a day? ...the free pizza & candy is just hilarious.

    I hate when people work out in khakis & jeans... wtf get athletic shorts.

    Very solid, because there was genuine irony and the set up didn't feel forced just for the punchline to work. 7/10.

    It's retarded they don't allow deadlift, because deadlift isn't strictly a bodybuilding exercise. It's actually one of the best exercises for toning up and burning fat. If you're actually pushing yourself, 15 minutes on the deadlift and you'll be more drained in sweat than wasting 2 hours on a treadmill. Same thing with squat.

    As I said, their marketing scheme is brilliant because they know the people they target are cash cow. As you can see from that vid, it's people that don't really want to work out but will get a membership so they feel good about themselves, they'll come in and socialize for 45 minutes of the hour they're there, and freelance 5 reps on random machines and not know what they're actually working on.

    The lunk alarm isn't the only reason people make fun of Planet Fitness



    I sh*t you not, the gym actually hands out free pizza to their members.
