Planet fitness or Anytime fitness better for expediting?

OK, time for me to get my fat ass into the gym. I don't fuel up at Pilot/Flying J that much anyway.
What's the cheapest way to sign on with Anytime Fitness. Since we travel all over the country are there different areas that have different pricing?
Just go to my home location & haggle?
Thoughts .....?
As a former member who never used the service once, after being locked into a 1 yr contract, I'm reluctant to sign up again :rolleyes:
That said, sometimes you can get a special pricing from a location, but really haven't seen too much of that for the national "black card" plan.
If you use their app, you can check out what individual clubs are offering.

I know recently they were offering a No-Contract plan for local use. If they did that for Black Card, I'd probably consider "trying" it again.
But very doubtful, I would ever lock myself into a 1 yr contract again :rolleyes:

Disregard, but I still say no to contracts :D

They do have different pricing as they are all independent franchises. I think it's usually somewhere around 40 a month plus the sign up fees and stuff. ($1 sign up fee March 4th thru 8th).

I would just go to your local gym and sign up there since it won't make much of a difference in price anyway I don't think, unless you live Manhattan or something. Either way you have to wait 30 days to use other locations.

exercise is great, but its the food out there thats adding on to ones problem...I would imho find it near impossible to be compliant eating plant based foods on the road, but I guess you gotta do what you gotta do...

It's not that hard as long as you got a fridge to store stuff in. Just gotta create a diet plan of nutritious healthy foods that balance the calories and macros that you will enjoy, or at least tolerate till you can learn to enjoy it. Being in a van or truck you gotta have stuff that's pretty easy to prepare, best if it's stuff you can mostly meal prep and premake your meals in containers or whatnot.

I like eating like this. It's cheaper. It's one less thing I have to think about. It's quicker than waiting in food lines. I have more energy. I feel healthy.

Planet Fitness dropped the contract part for Black Card :treadmill:
So there goes my main excuse not to rejoin :rolleyes:
My bank also has a 10% off discount offer available.

Still don't like the annual membership fee part. How they justify a annual membership fee when your month to month? IDK :think3:
But, I still don't think I would use it much, if at all (like last time).
So, will stay on the side lines for now.
At least there is no contract now, if I do try it again ;)

Anytime Fitness was $10/month more and locked me into a 1 year contract.

Planet Fitness Black Card is $20/month and no contract.

That’s what I’m doing.

We all have our good days and our bad days, but I used to work a hard, physical labor job for 12 hours, then go to the gym.

To sit for 10 hours, and do next to zero physical labor, I don’t see the problem of getting to a gym.

Ok, so I joined Anytime Fitness!

I must have called like 15 different locations last week. Their promotion is like a game of three card monty. One location costs this much per month ... one location has a fee for the key fob. So after I beat this to death, here's what I signed up for.

1 year agreement

Initial payment:
$1 - enrollment fee
$38 - first month
$38 - last month
$67 - key fob
total: $144

Rest of the year: 10 installments at $38

Basically $43.67 per mo.

I was crunched for time, out in CA .. just needed to commit.

Oh, the guy that signed me up said that for the first month if I go during business hours I should be able to use any location. No need to wait the initial 30 days.

I have been taking notice of the many Anytime Fitness locations in the vicinity of where I pick up and drop off. The excellent coverage seems to our advantage.
