NOW that we started eating healthy, and Ur mentally ready to start working out it is time to pick a GYM. This is very important. U will be spending a lot of time there. I will rank GYMS:
PLANET FITNESS is for beginners. The Hours are Great. They Focus on trying to keep the gym and the equipment clean. Planet Fitness is not like all the other gyms and encourages soft people to indulge in its purple haze of mediocrity & they showed this when Removed it Squat Racks from one of there locations because they felt it was to intimidating.
That tells U a lot about this GYM. ANYONE That is Serious about working will tell U how important Squats are. Also without a Squats Rack that means NO Bent Over Row & NO Dead Lifts.
The move is one of many — along with offering free pizza and bagels and tanning beds — to lure in the casual gym goer who might be turned off by gyms being a little too “fitness oriented.”
Either way, if you want to do serious workouts at any point in your life, make sure to avoid Planet Fitness. And if you’re the type of person who’s intimidated by a series of metal rods that make people stronger and healthier, Planet Fitness is for U & I truly realized when I worked for them for a very short period.
They informed I could not give anyone nutritional advice. How are U suppose to get in shape without knowing how to eat correctly ??? Then they informed ME I could not inform people about their 72 hour Window (Post DeStress Muscle Recovery). If U don't know what Ur 72 hour window is please stop working out NOW and e-mail ME Now. U can never get into shape without this info. AT This Point I knew it was Time to Leave.
Blink Fitness is slightly above Planet Fitness because they have a Squat Rack & Leg Press. Still NO Aerobic Class so it is not much better because they have regular hours for a gym, but I would go with Blink if I to decide between Planet Fitness and Blink, but I would join both. $ 40. a month for two membership is a great price.
Plus Don't Forget NO Aerobic Class @ Blink and Planet Fitness.
Bally Total Fitness is where I started, but they are just above Blink because they have Aerobic Class, but most location offer babysitting. So they eliminated the excuse of NO One to Watch Ur Kids, but the things that put's Bally on a higher list then NYSC & Equinox is the Atmosphere of the GYM. People that usually work out at Bally's are Serious about Working Out. It is SO Motivating to do a Bent Over Row & the guy next to U doing Bent Over Rows with weight Heavier then U.
I don't know about U, but NO One Kicks Sand in MY Face. I will alway increase MY Weight & Work Harder.
Some gyms have Steam, Sauna, Swimming Pools and Jacuzzi. I don't care about these things because they really won't help U lose Fat, but with Bally's rate of $ 20. makes them the best bet.
NYSC & Equinox are on the same level to ME. Some gyms have Steam, Sauna, Swimming Pools, but they cost about $ 75.00 a month so they are the bottom of my list because of the rate and hours.
There are to many MOM & POP GYMS to talk about every gym. Like NYC Fitness which I work for. I teach KickBoxing with Butt and Gutt every Tues. 7 PM.
They are located at:
NY, NY 10031
Bet. 145 & 146 St. FOR THE rate of $ 20. a month and the GYM is open 24/7 I would go with this & Bally's for MY Money. Plus U get to take Class with ME For FREE. The Best Personal Trainer in The World.
