Win a one year membership to Planet Fitness (giveaway ends 9/22/13)


Win a Planet Fitness membership

If there is one thing that I am really guilty of NOT doing it’s exercising. I’m not a big fan of it. I know I HAVE to for health reasons, but I just can’t get into it.

Many years ago (pre-hubby and children) I belonged to a gym. At that time I was very obese (close to 350 pounds!). I was mortified to even step inside the building, let alone try and work out surrounded by people who were in shape. I always felt like I was being judged by the other people working out with me.

I did go to the gym. After all, I was paying a small fortune to go. But I usually ended up doing something I could do by myself and away from others. Most of the time that meant racquetball. I used to play by myself. Playing racquetball by yourself is not as fun and challenging as it is with someone else.

When I think back on how much money I spent on that membership, and how little use I got out of it, it makes me mad. I should have gone more often and put more effort into working out.

I really like the commercials for Planet Fitness. They are hysterical. I especially like the “I lift things up and put them down” commercial and the one with the “hot” women (which is the reason why I don’t go to gyms :-)).



If you happen to be in the Wall Street District in Manhattan/NYC you might want to check out the grand opening of their newest location at 25 Broadway on Monday, September 16, 2013.  The cutting ceremony will be from 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM. The actual cutting will take place at 12:30.

Danni Allen, the winner of season 14 of NBC’s The Biggest Loser will also be on hand to not only celebrate the grand opening but also to offer visitors fitness tips and share her secrets for keeping off the weight she lost as well as her experience on the show.

In addition to this fun event, Planet Fitness is going to run a special from now through October 10, 2013. You can join Planet Fitness (any location – not just the new location) for only $1.00 down and $10.00 a month at their new Wall Street location. WOW!!! When I joined a gym decades ago it was small fortune just to join and $50 a month! I really wish we had a Planet Fitness local enough for me. I would join in a heartbeat. You can’t beat that price.

They also have a special PF Black Card® membership. For $19.99 a month this premium membership gives members access to all 700 clubs as well as perks like unlimited tanning, use of their massage chairs, Hydro-massage beds and Total Body Enhancement bed. You can also get 50% of cooler drinks and you can bring a guest EVERY DAY at no additional charge.

There are almost 700 Planet Fitness locations nationwide.

As you know, Planet Fitness has a “Judgment Free Zone®” where members can feel comfortable working out in a non-intimidating environment. They even have a “Lunk Alarm,” a purple and yellow siren on the wall used to enforce the policy of no grunting, dropping weights or judging others. I love that!

To find a location near you visit www.PlanetFitness.com. You can also check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

I have been trying to loose the weight but I know I can’t do it with diet alone. A planet fitness just opened in Hudson. However, I can’t afford the gas back and forth (30 minute ride) and the gym membership. This would be a great opportunity for me if I won!! Thanks as always for the great giveaways!!!

    My daughter is a single mom who works 6 days a week. She signed up for Planet Fitness and hoped she could continue to keep paying. She is trying to find a way to move out of our home and I know this is the first thing she will give up. I know how important the physical and emotional/mental activities is for her…she does day care 10 hours a day and then on Sundays works at the church day care for 4 hours. Parents go wonky without a chance to socialize and get out of the house. I wish I could do this too, but health does not allow.
