Good, but could be better.

Having just joined Planet Fitness the other day I have now had the chance to take its app for a test run - so to speak. The app itself is very helpful for a complete newbie such as myself. I appreciate the ability to see how the different machines work via videos found by using QR codes on the machines. I also like the ability to use the membership card on the app - though, for some reason I’ve got to figure, it does not work on my Apple Watch.

The one place I really, really hope the app developers fix is the ability to add the exercises one engages in. For example: today I did arm curls, bicep curls, front fly, chest press, hammer curl, and up/down/oblique abdominals. Not a single one of these exercise are listed in the “add an activity” section of the app. Why on earth wouldn’t you have each machine you have in your gym listed on your app? Please consider adding in the ability to list the machines used, the weights used, and time spent (or even reps) along with the other information you allow currently.

Being able to add these is will more accurately reflect my actual “mins of exercise”, “activities this week”, “calories burned”, and “mins per active day”.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! We will certainly keep your ideas in mind for our next update. See you next time!

Planet Does Us Right

I love Planet Fitness, I just recently joined and had been a 24 hour Fitness member for a while but hated going because the lack of equipment due to always being hogged up by body builders. I would go try to work out and they just stand there staring at you and kept asking if I was done, when I had just gotten the equipment after waiting my turn. Planet Fitness has tons of equipment TONS and there’s always something available to do. Not to mention the levels of membership ranging from $10, $12 and $21 which is the Black Card Membership that allows me to use the gym on my way home from work and the one by my house on the weekends. Plus not only that but the Black Card Room with tanning booths, total body enhancing booth and hydro massage with massage chairs. I love it, there are no pushy trainers, No body builders, just average me and average others who have the same goals in mind, lose weight and get healthy. Would I recommend Planet Fitness to those who are intimidated by the big gym, yes I would. The only thing I miss is Body Pump class but I remedied that with my own body pump setup at home. The staff is nice and everyone has to wipe down their equipment after use with cleaner provided every where, even Monk would be impressed. Thank you Planet for catering to people like us.

Xcapture replacement is terrible

As a developer myself, I feel really bad reading the reviews here, as I can tell a lot of work was put into updating the design of this app. However the reason I came here is to see if anyone else had written about how to properly log a photo of my TREADMILL workout, literally the most common cardio machine at any gym. Unbelievably, my worst fear confirmed, the app no longer has the “treadmill” option, and they have also “discontinued” the snap a workout feature. That feature was so helpful for me tracking my fitness history.

But ok, I have to enter manually now, I could reluctantly accept that. Then I learned that to add insult to injury, you can only use the “walking” option as the closest thing to treadmill, and there you can only log your speed and minutes, not your calories or incline. From reading reviews, I learned the super buried feature where if you enter your height and weight, it will calculate the calories, however without the incline info, the calculation is way off.

Friends, I feel bad saying this but this update is *terrible* — I have never regretted updating an app on this level. The old version was ugly, but it was super useful, and i used it a lot for a very important part of my life. The new version is useless to me. I have been an iphone user since 2008, and I this is the first time i can remember writing any app review. I can only hope you can work quickly to restore needed features to your paying customers.

Thank you for providing us with your feedback! We will continue to improve our mobile app and plan to include more features in future updates. Please stay tuned as we continue to make updates to the app to enhance your mobile experience!

This workout will help you create your own confidence, and color outside the lines with a creative routine. Teddy Savage, head of health & fitness excellence at Planet Fitness joined us today to show us this routine.

Here’s more from him:

Most people find confidence in repeating the same movements they’ve grown accustomed to. However, this may lead to muscle memory and pesky plateaus.

Instead of doing the same routine, create your confidence by exploring different exercises or concepts that you may have never tried before. This confuses the muscles and helps them respond better.

These movements are not only super fun, super effective at triggering muscles that help to support important joints in the lower body.

Can You Get a Personal Trainer at Planet Fitness?

Get the Basics...

  • Personal training is no longer allowed at Planet Fitness locations, but the company offers group training sessions.
  • Group training sessions are both valuable and educational for newbies although some drawbacks exist.
  • Off-site one-on-one training may be an option.

Planet Fitness started out in 1992 as a single, traditional gym in Dover, NH. The franchise shifted its focus to newbies to fitness and, in 2003, launched its first franchise location in Florida. Today, more than 1,400 locations are in operation.

Planet Fitness rests high on the ladder of big-box corporate gyms. Scratch that. Planet Fitness’ official stance is that its facilities are not gyms. The company came up with a brilliant marketing strategy.

Planet Fitness promotes a “No judgment zone” and a place “Where you belong.” There’s no “gym intimidation” allowed at any locations. The staff may forbid members from aggressive lifting (screaming, dropping weights), grunting, wearing revealing fitness clothes, and more.

In short, Planet Fitness caters to people who might find a hardcore bodybuilding gym and the culture that accompanies it intimidating. For those who are just starting to go to a gym or want a calm, non-competitive workout environment, Planet Fitness is a chain that’s thriving thanks to its inclusive atmosphere.

New members not familiar with how to perform basic exercises might need a little help, and personal trainers often provide the perfect assistance to newbies in need of help.

Unfortunately, Planet Fitness no longer allows personal training at its locations. Anyone interested in one-on-one training won’t find it at a Planet Fitness location.

The Planet Fitness Personal Trainer Controversy

The CEO of Planet Fitness, Mike Grondahl, decided to ban personal training at chain and franchise locations. Several reasons factored into the decision; a controversial decision to say the least.

Grohndahl cited a few reasons why personal training was banned including his claim personal trainers solicited members on the floor for lessons, which can admittedly be pushy and disruptive.

Allowing one-on-one personal training became frowned upon by Planet Fitness’ upper management.

However, the “[email protected]” group classes can be valuable. [email protected] stands for physical education at Planet Fitness. These are “gym classes without the whistle” and run a half-hour each.

Different locations may have different classes, but members commonly find three types of specific sessions:

One Muscle Group

Just like the good old days at Gold’s Gym in 1970’s Venice, CA, these sessions allow members to work solely on a specific muscle group.

Commonly, three or four exercises are chosen for the session and performed at moderate intensity.

Sessions dedicated to arms, back, shoulders, legs, and abdominals can be selected. Hitting a group session three days a week means hitting a particular muscle group on a specific day and then giving the muscles time to rest.

Circuit Training

With circuit training, you hit a particular machine for a set duration. The duration is timed by a green light/red light. You exercise on green and switch machines and rest on red.

Circuit training delivers a total body workout since the short sessions allow for hitting leg presses, leg raises, biceps curls, triceps extensions, ab crunches and more.

The short durations and low-intensity mostly turn the circuit workout into a cardio session more than a strength/mass building one, but that’s probably okay for many.

Design Your Own Program

The name tells all. The Planet Fitness trainer can help you devise a particular smart workout to assist you to meet your goals.

The program will not be high-intensity or violate any Planet Fitness workout rules. In other words, you can’t devise a bodybuilder or powerlifting program.

The huge benefit to working with an on-staff trainer is he/she crafts a program for you to perform on days/times without when solo training. A little bit of guidance goes a long way for newbies seeking results.

Now, one-on-one training remains preferable to many than group training. Small group sessions should be better than going it alone.

Group Sessions Pros and Cons

Although the lack of formal one-on-one sessions has drawbacks, access to Planet Fitness physical education classes delivers some big positives. What are some of the pros and cons?

Here are three pros that should benefit members. These positives show some important benefits to the sessions.

You Get Proper Instruction on Exercise Performance

Whether one, two, or six people are in the session, a good trainer should explain the right way to do the exercises.

Trainers know the correct form for an exercise and make sure the member isn’t struggling with the weight. The knowledge gained from the sessions can be used when working out alone

Trainers Answer Questions

Do you have any questions about exercise and fitness? Ask the trainer.

They have been trained in the real of fitness coaching and know how to provide answers to common workout and diet questions that aren’t just easy to understand but also easy to implement.

You May Luck Out Into a One-on-One Session

You never know. Some days, you might be the only person who shows up for a scheduled group class. Good for you. You just lucked into a one-on-one session. Make the most of it.

And then come the cons. Group sessions do have some minor drawbacks, but these cons probably won’t turn too many people off from checking the sessions out.

Basic Fitness Routines

Since the classes are group classes, the trainer has to pick a series of the same exercises for everyone.

Group classes are a great way to meet new people and get a good workout, but if you want help reaching your personal exercise goals, then a one-on-one session with a trainer is a good idea.

Long Waits Between Sets

Long rest periods between sets are great for powerlifting workouts, but Planet Fitness classes aren’t exactly Olympic training.

The long waits result from having several people performing the exercises. You have to wait your turn meaning downtime instead of a more appropriately timed rest.

No Instruction on Certain Exercises

Certain exercises such as free barbell squats and overhead presses are a major part of a lot of intensive weight-training, but due to the “no gym intimidation” rule, these exercises are barred and won’t be a part of your training.

At $10, the pros of Planet Fitness outweigh the cons, especially for those on a budget. It’s also good to note that group sessions do not come with extra costs and are taught by experienced trainers.

Training Outside of Planet Fitness

One last point must be mentioned. You aren’t limited to only training at one fitness center.

Do the on-staff trainers at Planet Fitness also work as personal trainers at local gyms? If so, then booking one-on-one sessions with a preferred trainer at another site remains an option.

Of course, the option exists to work with another trainer not affiliated with Planet Fitness. The group sessions at Planet Fitness could suffice on those days when not working out with a primary trainer.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do gyms have dress codes?

Yes, most gyms have some kind of dress code, however, they will differ. For example, CrossFit and ninja gyms are a lot less likely to require shirts, shoes, etc.

How do I find a good gym?

Word of mouth, trial and error, and scouring review sites like Yelp are all great ways to find a gym that you will feel comfortable in. Most gyms offer free trial periods, so use free trials to test out different gyms or fitness studios in your area.

What is the best time to go to the gym?

The best time to go to the gym is a time that works for you; however, some times are better than others in terms of the number of people exercising. Try to avoid the gym from 8-10 AM and 4-7 PM if you can as most people try to get work out directly before or directly after work.
