    The "Lunk alarm"

    I've just been viewing this thread;

    http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=121774381


    This is seriously the first time i've ever heard of this thing. Is this fuc*ing serious? Do they have this in many gyms in the US (they might have them here, never been in Planet Fitness)?
    I can't believe this actually exists.
    This is a motherfuking invitation,
    The only one you could ever need.

    Let Planet Fitness cater to phaggots and the phaggot trees. I couldn't care less. Good for them actually, attracts the phags and keeps them out of real gyms. I always facepalm at people who knowingly get memberships there, continue to pay, yet complain about it.

    I think someone sets it off.. unless it reacts to sudden noice level spikes.

    Yeah, stupidest sht I've ever seen.

    Some poster was right on with a comment though - meant to reinforce a judgement free environment, yet they phrase it as "lunk alarm" (lunk meaning person of low intelligence - insinuating bodybuilders are 'all muscle, no brain')

    I think there could be a case against them for discriminatory policy

    The alarm coming on would scare people more than the dropping of weights or grunting would IMO.
    Never tell your problems to anyone, 20% of people don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them.

    I don't mind if they have a lunk alarm, it'll keep all the poseurs there. BTW, how does one do deadlifts without making noise?

    doubt it. it isn't like the lunk alarm is some hidden secret. everyone is aware of their policy. if you don't like it you can simply not sign up or GTFO if after years of training there it finally dawns on you that you're not welcome. (no misc lawyer)

    What?!? So this is basically just a place for pussies to congregate? They even ban deadlifts?

    So they don't cater to bodybuilders and powerlifters because that would intimidate first timers and people who just want a "hot beach bod". I don't get intimidated by people who are better than me in my gym, i get motivated.

    How is a loud, shrill alarm less annoying than a guy grunting anyway?

    How is a loud, shrill alarm less annoying than a guy grunting anyway?
    you would fit in...

    most people on here have never even been in one and just talk out their ass....if you're a huge guy and throw around heavy weights then this isnt for you...if you use DB's less than 75lbs then this is an alright place.

    I just do rack pulls instead of deads and use the smith machien for squats and do an assortment of dif. leg exercises.


    also,
    the dude was prabably grunting like a phaggot....i grunt all the time....its natural...and no ones said anythign about it.

    Why would a serious lifter even bother going there?

    Thought it might be old news, i've never really looked into Planet Fitness properly though and i never realised it was that lame. They have one where i live, i'd be curious to know if PF gyms are as bad in the UK.

    This is just another example of how America is quickly becoming a culture of mediocrity. No more is performance valued but simply just being "there". PF knows it makes the most money off saggy baby boomers who only come in one or two times a week. Having people who actually work out with purpose and drive seriously impacts their greatest source of $.

    I actually joined at the one near me with my gf. I work out with my brother and at the gym we have at work though, so less than 50% of my workouts are there.

    I've seen a few guys set DB's down pretty hard and it's never gone off. Fortunately I know how to sit up with a pair of DB's without dropping them.

    I think it's more of a way to control the environment at the gym than anything. Highly doubt the thing even works.

    I'd rather be a gym with equipment for powerlifting but my choices are drive .9 miles to PF for $10/month or drive 3.5miles through worst traffic in the city to Gold's for $40/month. Plus I think you have to put a down payment at Gold's as well.

    Some poster was right on with a comment though - meant to reinforce a judgement free environment, yet they phrase it as "lunk alarm" (lunk meaning person of low intelligence - insinuating bodybuilders are 'all muscle, no brain')

    I think there could be a case against them for discriminatory policy
    right here brah. i say we all file complaints.

    Note that for all of the pictures of "lunkheads" and "intimidating people" they're pictures of guys doing squats, smith presses with heavy weights, making grunting facial expressions, etc.

    Then when they switch over to "planet fitness aims to be an environment free of judging and intimidation" there's a montage of an old lady doing hammer strength shoulder presses while breathing lightly, and a girl in her 20s doing super-light 10 lb dumbbell presses, and so on.

    "Lunkheads" -- "intimidating people" -- they show pictures of men.
    "Environment free of intimidation" -- they show pictures of women happily getting "fit", away from the men.

    Note that if this were reversed, feminists would be sh*tting themselves right now.

    You're defending a place that bans deadlifts. Doesn't advice on proper form or anything, just bans them outright and this is supposed to be a gym? Need i say more?

    Phaggot Fitness has every right to run their business how they want. If you want all the phags to be lifting with you then by all means get them shut down so they come to your gym.

    well you can't deadlift there and they dont have squat racks so u have to squat in smith's. its ****ing retarded as ****.
    and personally i like the gym atmosphere where people yell when lifting actually heavy weights etc, kinda gets me motivated if i see some huge guy bench 600 lbs making ****ton of noise but everyone in the gym is mirin'

    Misc should organize a planet fitness boycott. People in certain areas of the country meet up, pay to enter a planet fitness and then grunt/deadlift and see how long it takes to get kicked out.
