Planet Fitness "$99 for 1 year!" promotion - YMMV
Not sure how wide spread this promotion is - however I did check five different locations in Western New York, Northern Pennsylvania and NE Ohio. Normal price at my nearest location is $178($10/month + $29 startup fee + $29 membership fee).
Go here to find your local club
After finding your preferred club, you will see three prices listed across the screen side:
- 1st: the Black (premier) price ($279 = $20/month x 12 months + $0 startup + $39 membership fee)
- 2nd: the regular membership price ($178 = $10/month x 12 months + $29 startup + $29 membership fee)
- 3rd: this promotional offer (if available at your location)
The $99 price is prepaid for the year for the basic membership (which does not include the tanning beds or massage chairs). There are NO ADDITIONAL mid-year fees.
This is not a gym for hardcore bodybuilding. It mostly has a wealth of cardio machines (treadmills, ellipticals, stairclimbers, and exercycles). It also has a multitude of the plate-and-pulley type weight machines (Cybex, Life Fitness, Nautilus, etc.) And a circuit training area.
There are plenty of dumbells up to 75-80 lbs. And a few Smith Machines for squats, etc. Equipment varies by location and sometimes so do the policies (no deadlifting on Smith machines, for example).
I go to PF because it's cheap, diligently cleaned, close-by, great hours, and usually no trouble getting on any cardio machine (including treadmills which are the most popular) even at peak times.
