Are you a member of planet fitness? Are you able to use them just fine travelling, is there anything they don't tell you? I'm thinking of getting a membership, but I will not usually be at the "home club", so I'm wondering about all the bs they might not want to talk about. Are the facilities nice? Is there anything you need to know about taking a guest, limitations, etc.?

I would read the fine print first. My Mom told me that Planet Fitness or something like that claimed she would get a free month for signing up, and charged her credit card the full price for that "Free Month," She had to get a doctor's note to get her out of that mess. I told her she should have reported them to The Better Business Bureau to get her out of that mess instead. She said something like,"You're being kind of naive, "

Google please. And BTW, you can lift chips instead, $5000 chip is pretty heavy I heard.

1. Member: No, but was.

2. Yes, but you have to have the Black Card which is $19.99/month (at least when I had it) plus some annual charge that they donít really tell you about upfront, so make sure to figure out how much it is and when it comes out.

The $9.99 membership, at least at the time, only let you use your home gym.

3. The facilities are fine, lots of the locations are less than a few years old.

4. With the Black Card, you can take one guest anytime you want. Again, thatís going back to when I had a membership.

As mentioned, you have to have the more expensive membership to use clubs when traveling. The PF that I belonged to in NY had a real problem with lockers being broken into. It also had some unsavory characters who hung around overnights, especially in the winter.

It's fine for what it is. If you want to do any actual weight training it's not feasible.

1) No squat racks
2) No deadlifts (that's right, putting weight on the ground, bending over, grabbing it and standing up is NOT ALLOWED)
3) Possibly no benches suitable for barbell bench press

Instead you have treadmills, ellipticals, smith machines, stack weight machines for (not) working a single body part, dumbbells up to 50lbs and possibly a set of plates somewhere for doing anything other than loading a bar.

If your goal is to get hot and sweaty you'll be fine. If your goal is to get stronger then look elsewhere.
