I joined because they are one of the cheapest gyms around and i didnt want to pay an arm and a leg to get a workout.
I would highly recommend it, it's cheap and the sign up process is easy. It also has everything you need to workout.
I would love to see less homeless people here since it is a cheap gym they will let anyone in.
Since joining i have noticed an increase in my cardiovascular system.
The trainer, Justyce D, is an amazing trainer. She knows how to make sure your muscles are getting an equal workout without sacrificing anything.
Signing up is easy, it is 10 a month and a 45 initiation fee. Overall you can get the membership for about $110 a year!

Needed a gym closer to my job, can’t get better than the next building over! Perfect!
Clean, very helpful staff, great machines and plenty! The locker rooms are pretty spacious and clean as well
Sometimes there is a long line to check in, so maybe more people in the front are needed
Weight loss! This gym and the people there are awesome
I took the beginner class to learn how to use some of the machines
Quick and easy leash no commitment.
I joined this location because of its close proximity to my office and the fact that there are a lot of cardio and weight machines.
I'd recommend it if you're looking for a cheap no frills gym experience. If you're looking for a gym with more open space and less crowds of people, this probably isn't the place for you.
The temperature definitely needs to be monitored. Some floors are cold and others are so humid that it makes it hard to workout. Also, there needs to be more room for ab work.
My goals for the year are to run a half marathon. The vast amount of treadmills helps me work on this.
I've never used an instructor here, but they do have some "classes".
Signing up was easy, but they needed a bank account to link with (which I don't like doing). Afterwards, I ended up canceling that card and gave them a credit card instead.
Wanted to get healthy and it wasn’t expensive. It was one of the closest gyms to my house.
I would not recommend this location. You get what you pay for. Overcrowded and management doesn’t help at all
Locker rooms need to be cleaned top to bottom. Management needs to step up and take control.
I get discouraged every time I go lately. People sitting on machines texting or taking photos instead of working out.
The original trainer there was great. Then he left and there was a long stretch of no training but they continued to advertise they had one.
No commitment. Low up front cost but they hit you with a maintanence fre once a year for almost the cost of a years membership.
Close to home, great hours, really convenient regarding price.
Staff is super friendly and bathrooms are clean.
I would recommend it because it is clean, it is open 24/5 and all day during the weekend, and staff is friendly. Plenty of space to exercise and multiple machines.
There are so many machines for cardio, and a lot of weight machines, but on the upper floor it would be nice to have more machines at the back, the ones that you can use to exercise upper body, as they are sometimes packed and hard to use.
My goal is to exercise in an environment where I don't feel pressure and I can come and go as I please, regarding the time.
I did not have the pleasure to meet with an instructor, as I usually follow my own guide.
I believe it was a year commitment with a fee if you cancel before the year is up.
Nowhere else was as affordable and as close to my apartment. I looked into other gyms and their fees are way too high.
Only if you're poor like me. The culture of Planet Fitness is, in my opinion, for people who want to tell others they go to a gym but don't actually want to work out.
More equipment and to take fitness seriously. It's too casual
To stay in shape and perhaps even build muscle. Fingers crossed
None. I have not had any experience with instructors.
I signed up for the no contract, $15 a month plan. Signup was quick and simple
I needed a membership at a gym that was convenient as far as location to my home. I find that if it is too much work to make my way to the gym, I am less likely to go.
I would because you get unlimited guest privileges. This type of gym is good for people who are not fully comfortable in an overly aggressive gym setting.
The biggest improvement would be adding more free weights like squat bars, bench presses and take away some of the cardio machines that just take up space.
My goal is to stay physically fit. I am able to get to and from the gym with no issues and have a variety of machines at my disposal.

I signed up online and had no issue getting a key card when I went into the actual location.
I joined Planet Fitness years ago with a black card because it is the cheapest option on the market ($20/mo to any of their locations). When I moved to Harlem, I changed to this location because it is closest to me. It is a convenient location right on 125th with a lot of machines on two floors!
I have been going here for about nine months now and I'm pleased. I can always get the workout I need complete as long as I'm a little flexible about the order I workout on the weekday evenings, as it's very busy then. I've never seen a machine out of order when it wasn't one of several, at which point it doesn't affect me. Planet Fitness gets the job done.
It is SO reasonably priced at $21 to $10/month based on your plan. You won't find anyplace cheaper than that. They have as many cardio machines as your heart desires. There are lots of TVs that are always working, if that is a draw for you. A decent number of strength training machines - two of each type to alleviate the wait if the gym is full. It's bright, large, and well-lit, so you don't really notice that you're underground on the bottom floor. The top floor has huge floor length windows. Black Card Spa is clean. Huge gym.
The bathrooms are not always up to par. No one racks their weights, you have to search sometimes to find your size. They don't refresh the wipedown stations often enough so sometimes you can't find one with supplies. There aren't enough weight benches/seats or the large quad machines (the ones with a pulldown, cables, and seated row options) for everyone on the weekday evenings, so you may have to wait a little while/be flexible about your workout order. In my experience, the staff don't engage but they're not rude, either.
I train for obstacle course races (Savage, Spartan, Terrain Race) all year long. I just want to stay in shape as well as increase my stamina, upper body strength, and running speed. The cardio machines, especially the treadmills and stairs, are in enough that I never have to wait and can jump on them whenever for cardio. The weights section is well designed by muscle group and there is a section for freeweights and cable machines for strength. I also like the stretching section which is easy to access and great for cool downs.
I do not have experience with any instructors, but there are instructors available.
I signed up for the Black Card during a special that didn't have a year-long commitment. They frequently run those specials. There is a $15/mo plan with no commitment, a $10/mo plan with a yearlong commitment - these both limit you to one location. The now $21/mo plan allows you to visit any Planet Fitness location and is a yearlong commitment except when the specials are run (once every two months from what I can tell). It is a straightforward and easy signup process.
It’s near work, has long hours, is cheap. Was looking to lose some weight and tone. I liked the little perks of massage areas.
Sure, it’s ok once you know what you’re doing. The front desk staff could definitely be more helpful in that area.
Heavier weights (I know that’s not their thing, but...really), more advertisement of classes, an actual introduction to the gym.
I need to lose weight, but am not very motivated and also don’t really know what to do. The gym doesn’t help except provide the treadmill I usually get on.
I don’t have any experience with instructors here and don’t know who they are.
1 year. Needed my checking account info, which was kinda strange when advertising walk in sign-ups. It was pretty simple though. I did not get the free sign-up shirt, but was given a bag when I asked about it.
