    Fuck.
    Maine, Kilian and other locals can tell you it was basically a dream gym for any style, Strongman, PL, BB'er. I have no idea where Im gonna go now for a gym. Do Planet Fitness DB's even go over 100? May have to go to a Worlds now...this has devestated me.

    right, this may even help your recovery since they only have db's possibly up to 100s to prevent yourself from re injuring...

    Go to TPS. It is completely unacceptable to join planet fitness.

    Pretty bad. Tons of rules...no chalk, no grunting, no deadlifts, etc. Very much the gym for teh soccer mom.

    No idea. I do know that if you're 25 mins out from TPS and you don't go there that I should probably kick you in the balls.

    Planet fitness sucks balls, I'm not even hugggge and I felt out of place there. Dumbbells only go to 75 at the one I had to go to when my gym at school closed.

    Do not do it if you are any where above an average dude lifting like 3 days a week to maintain 12" arms.
