          The one I went to is at the bottom right. The newest one just opened in gresham a few mins from me. I told off some stinky ass hobo off for stinking up the whole dumbbell area by the windows. Seems like he had a personal trainer that looked like his mom yet the guy looks Hella alot older. Drugs probably. Sad.
          Fricked up cause they were looking at ME like I'M the ONE in the wrong for saying something. No judgemental zone sure but if you fricking stink, get out.

    Depends on how seriously the employees want to enforce some of the gaygier policies, what times you go, and how ghetto the clientele in your area are.
    If you're beginner to intermediate the equipment is fine from what I've seen.

    the only real complaint I have is that the low cost poses a low barrier to entry which translates into a gym that is often crowded, making it difficult to stay consistent with a routine without either waiting around or constantly having to adapt your exercises, but hey, that's what you get for $15/mo

    the color scheme sucks and their marketing is very anti-fitness but I've used them while traveling lots of times because they've got a $10 day pass. At the end of the day they're not any different from any other gym, although I've never been there during one of the infamous pizza parties.

    Only negative about pf I've found so far is that they don't have a way for me to train lower back anymore since I maxed out the back extension machine. But I guess I could do back extensions on one of those padded things while holding dumbbells, but I think I'd quickly milk all the gains from that too

    Everything else is fine. If you get to the point of maxing all of the machines, you can start doing them unilaterally, giving you twice as much weight as the first go-around. If you can do all of the machines unilaterally with max weight stack then you are absurdly strong and look pretty fricking good

      This is my problem too. Max back extension, close to maxing the leg press and hamstring curl. Kinda getting there on the pec deck too. Some of the machine stacks are just not heavy enough

        Anonymous

        Been considering getting a gym pin to add more plates to weight stack, but I don't know if staff would be cool with that. Also, it might overload the machine and snap a cable or something. I'd think that if a cable was snapped because of adding more weight on than the machine was engineered for that they might try to charge me for damages or revoke my membership. What you think man? Any ideas to get mire out of the back extension machine?

          For the back extensions, I've been mulling over doing it by being turned to the side a little. A gym pin is a good idea, just that if you do break something, don't tell the staff until after you remove the extra plate.

    It's memed in the same way Walmart is memed. It's the Walmart of gyms. Has everything you would need, if it's in the ghetto it sucks, and most of the time the staff doesn't GAF. I've always just gone based off of the price + the fact it's all over the US if I'm on vacation. You have every machine for every muscle, you are only missing out if you're a powerlifter... but that's such a specific thing - if you're just going for hypertrophy/weight loss, then it's good and I've never had an issue.

    They're very clean and can have some decent equipment minus the squat racks, depending on the area. Great for beginners just for cost and range of machines. If you're just starting out you won't appreciate how good free weights are anyway. Just enjoy your easy starter gains and establish a routine. Move up to a better gym once you learn to love gym day

    It seems sufficient for my needs. Im doing a variation of SS so Im stuck on a one of the four smith machines for about an hour. Rarely has it ever been where it feels like Im hogging it since if all are taken, one is freed up shortly. Most of the time its people on the cardio machines so I doubt its really an issue.

    I did hear the lunk alarm go off once for a superset Boomer who decided to hit every machine and slam it down and make orgasm sounds. It would be funny if it wasnt unintentional. Plus he left all of his stuff on the only leg press machine and claimed it as his own even though he would only use it once every 10 minutes. The lunk alarm was also only rung for maybe 0.25 seconds too.

    I hear most don't have free weights for benches and squats while dumbbells only go up to 50lbs.

      been to several locations, they all had dumbbells that go to 75 lbs. Smith machines for squat and bench if that's what youre into. non dumbbell free weights are pathetic though. Fixed/non-adjustable sets of ez curl and straight bar weights that go up to 60 lbs total. Literally fricking useless

      Compared smith bench and regular bench on strength standards. Apparently they are within 2% of each other, so if you want a big bench you can do the majority of your training on smith and then just do some training on regular bench whenever you get the chance so you can train up the neural pathways. Squat doesn't seem to transfer too well. More than 10% difference and obviously a hugely different activation pattern.

        I've definitely noticed what you say about smith vs free weight bench and squat. Trained on smith for a year and half before getting to try free weight again and my squat was completely fricked, bench was pretty much the same.

    I've been going to the same PF for 3 years.
    All of my 5 friends are from here.
    I go here because I can get a free 1-day pass by just creating a new email and signing up in the app (free with 5 minutes of work per visit).
    I was originally frugal, but this month I am poor-poor (no debt, but the sum of my checking & savings is $30).
    >They're no longer 24/7.

    >1 time a 20yo Shaneekwua was on the treadmill and the police came up to her and she was escorted out in tears before being placed in handcuffs outside.
    >1 time a guy lacking socks was wearing transparent Crocs (pseudo-shoes) that had manufacturer-added holes, so everyone could see his feet.
    >1 time there was a crowd of future-doctors & future-engineers running in the attached mall, and when they ran past the PF and into the outdoors one of them pulled a gun, and I went back into the gym and then the cops showed up. Unsure of the outcome.

    It's a gym that charges 10 bucks. You get what you pay for. Mine got on my nerves recently because they were renovating and the Men's locker room was closed for 3 Months +. Finally got done and then they pulled some bullshit where the new mens locker room became the women's locker room and we got the old locker room. IT's the most ass backward, moron way of running a gym/renovation I swear.
