This week, there have been reports that scientists have discovered a planet roughly 40 light years away made of diamond. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty gosh darned cool.
Also this week, a picture has been circulating around Facebook suggesting that the corporate douche-nozzles at Planet Fitness are now BANNING one of the best exercises a scientist or otherwise could ever hope to discover. I don’t understand how an establishment that 1) won’t let members physically challenge themselves and/or 2) prohibits the deadlift can call rightfully themselves a GYM. There’s gotta be some legal definition somewhere to protect against this sort of embarrassment to the actual fitness industry – just as sparkling wine made outside of the Champagne region of France can NOT be called Champagne.
Of course, I’m HOPING this sign/ban is just a joke posted by someone who just doesn’t like Planet Fitness for some other reasons, but whenever something is in print (or on Facebook), it MUST be true, right?
So what is allowed at Planet Fitness… bicep curls? Is that kind of ‘perk’ really worth $10 a month?
I imagine when one is done with a ‘workout’ at Planet Fitness, they must walk out with a feeling like they’ve just eaten an invisible meal. You might be able to go through the motions with your empty fork, but you’ll never really get to know what food tastes like.
