Pretty Much The Best Video, Ever

Share This:

As someone who has an avid disdain for Planet Fitness and everything they represent (from their idiotic lunk alarm, the “judgement free” policy they claim to follow, and of course, free pizza day….WTF!!!!), the following piece – which was featured on The Daily Show earlier last week – really hits the nail on the head with regards to showcasing just how much that place bites the big one. 

Ironically, Planet Fitness is about as judgemental as judgemental gets – rolling their eyes at anyone who has the audacity to get their heart rate above that of a corpse, or worse, lifting something heavier than 50 lbs.  How dare you?  What’s next – actually improving your health?

And really, when you think about it, Planet Fitness shouldn’t even call themselves Planet FITNESS in the first place –  since no one is allowed to exert themselves, let alone break a sweat.  Rather, to me at least, it’s more of a community center where people can get together, give each other high fives for walking a mile in less than 20 minutes, play some BINGO, and maybe knit a sweater or two.

Whatever.  Who am I to judge?  Wait, I just did!  LOL.  See what I just did there?  I flipped it on them!  I love America.

Nevertheless, enjoy the video – it’s priceless.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

    When I saw this a few days ago, I thought to myself, "I wonder if Tony has seen this?" I love that they say their a judgment free zone, but they can judge. At least they own up to their hypocrisy. But you have to wonder how they got all that equipment in their facility without grunting or breathing heavy?

    That was hilarious! Although, it is a sad state of affairs when just achieving "average" is being promoted. It seems that if someone wants to seek out greatness and push themselves to be the best they can be physically, they end up getting looked down upon.

    I went into a planet fitness with no prior knowledge. A guy did the tour for me and both of us knew I wouldn't be signing up but he continued and pointed out every reason he knew I wouldn't join. One of the most awkward and later funniest training experiences of my life.

    And, to combat frauds for profits,armani outlet, originators,jean diesel,armani , investors and even the FBI have twisted their focus towards investigating fraud for profit scams. This type of fraud involves many parties and tends to move with huge dollar losses. But,burberry pas cher, the fraud committed over housing can prove to be a very damaging one especially for borrowers and communities over the long term.
