Has anybody else heard of this? I have heard of some pretty silly stuff done to combat noise, grunting, etc. Even the alarm thing. But this apparently is an actual policy adopted by Planet Fitness?
This is hands down the douchiest thing I have ever heard of a commercial gym--or any business, for that matter--doing that doesn't involve something like race discrimination. And I've lightened up a lot about stick-up-the-arse commercial gyms lately because I know there is a time and a place for everything in terms of what type of training you do and where you do it. But a noise alarm?
If an effing ALARM went off due to my deadlifting or what-have-you and some 19-year-old punk-asss 24 Hour Fitness-certified trainer wanna-be sauntered out and threatened to revoked my membership, I would be so incensed that no fair court in America could hold me accountable for my ensuing actions.
What a bunch of cocks.
Thank you. I'm done.
