Hoping planet fitness will be one of the gyms

I LOVE watching other members at Equinox use their technology while they workout. Even the trainers are glued to screens while they train.

Nobody’s body composition has changed much, if at all, in my three years tenure at my location. The idea that an Apple Watch is a means to enhance your experience at a fitness facility is hilarious and backwards.

It’s tirelessly annoying that humans can feel satisfaction about hitting goals on machines designed to keep you weak (and your stabilising muscles/tissues weaker). Sheesh. People need to get back in touch with their humanity. Scientific feedback and metrics can be awesome, but the only people that truly benefit from them are people who also have many years of trial/error experience, knows what is best for their genetics, and eats bountifully for nutrition, not for pleasure.

Which brings me to this: 90% of your fitness is in your diet and diet alone!

This is all marketing. Barf. I think it’s worse that it works.

Jesus.. have a drink, will you? :rolleyes:

Hoping planet fitness will be one of the gyms

Unlikely. Planet Fitness would just 4x all your workout data and give you more free pizza.

It’s also unlikely that Planet Fitness, being one of the cheapest gyms in the country, would invest in all new equipment to support this new feature. Lifetime is on the other end as one of the most expensive options and is only doing so as they add new equipment at their higher-end clubs.

Hmm. I figured Globo Gym would be the first.
