    I’ve been to Planet Fitness locations all over the country and this is one of the best. It is very clean and spacious and they have most of the equipment you would look for, but the best part is the cheerful, polite staff and the friendly vibe. I attended for a few weeks and there was an elderly gentleman stationed in one of the massage chairs up front every time, talking to everyone walking by and obviously settled in. It made me happy to see that they have a welcoming environment for him and every other member who comes in.

    Gym is great. Staff is awesome. Just make sure you lock up any items like good perfumes up. Just get a good lock and lock up everything nice...even when showering. Ladies can get grabby. ..not sure how it's in the guys locker room.

    Great place. Usually clean and you can work out in peace. You have the option to have a personal trainer on certain days or work out with a group. Nice vibrant colors and I just wish they had more free weaights and not only these machines that have safety pulleys on them. Weekends it gets full as expected and it's fairly cheap to get a gym membership. People mind their business and let you work out in peace. Great place. They even have TVs to watch while you work out, but bring headphones to hear them. Ac is always on and cold.

    By far the best gym I've ever been a member of. Only $10/month or $20 for VIP membership which includes spa-like amenities including tanning beds, full body collagen lamps, hydro massage beds and massage chairs. Also VIP membership includes visits to any Planet Fitness across the nation, which is awesome for someone who travels a lot like I do. There's super cute and up lifting little words and sayings all over the walls and equipment. "PF = No Critics," "No Gymtimidation." Stuff like that, which can make the place feel a lot less cold and more welcoming than your average LA or 24/h Fitness. They also have something they call PE@PF where you can get free consultations with trainers and training sessions, one-on-one and in group. Or you can even just get together and make a workout plan if you prefer to have more of a solo workout. They also have a PF app that you can record your workouts on, watch how-to videos to learn how to use the equipment, book training sessions, find different locations, stuff like that. For VIP membership you do need to sign a year long contract, and if you want to terminate that contract you have to pay $50. There's also a $100 sign up fee (can't remember if that related only to VIP membership or not) but when I signed up it was only $10 and when I asked why it was on discount the girl signing me up said something about how they're always throwing random discounts at them for that sign-up fee and when I signed up it had just went up from $1 to $10. My lone complaint is that they don't have a pool or sauna like a lot of other big gyms have. But the price and spa amenities more than make up for it in my opinion.

    Gym itself is pretty good, but I'm from out of town and the first time I used this gym it was great. Then the second time I came, the lady at the front desk scanned my card and it gave some kind of error -- she was totally rude to me and told me I had to call my home gym. She wouldn't do anything to try to fix it. I just left because it was ridiculous the way she treated me. 5 stars for my first visit and 1 star for my second, so an average of 3. Updated from 3 starts to 4: I came back the next day and a different person was working -- no problem with the card! (of course). Good place to work out.
