Planet Fitness At Its Finest
The other day, we posted about an unfortunate incident that happened at CrossFit and some of the controversy that resurfaced as a result. Well, there is also another gym that’s been taking some heat lately, and for good reason…
I suppose a slogan like that is warranted for a gym that removes squat racks for being “too intimidating” yet has men with knives getting tased on the training floor:
I guess that’s what $10/month gets you.
First, 3 lunkheads are in a line in front of the unorganized DB racks all doing lateral shoulder raises next to each other. They all did more than 5 sets and did not let anyone get by to grab weights.
Shortly after… 2 scrawny teens doing 30-lb. biceps curls with the cable machine:
Me: Hey, are you only doing 30 lbs.?
Kid 1: Yeah, what’s up?
Me: Can you use the 30-lb. barbell so I can actually use the cable for a cable exercise?
Kids 1 and 2: What?
Me: You do understand that what you’re curling right now and using the barbell is the same thing, right?
Kid 1: Yeah but we just did that.
Kid 2: I don’t know.
Me: Are you two kidding me? This makes no sense, you know that? How much longer am I waiting for you clowns?
Kid 1: A couple more sets man!
They proceed to do about 4 more sets each and then change the implement to do triceps pulldowns, while both actual triceps pulldown stations are vacant…
