Does my club take cash as a form of payment?
Unfortunately, we do not accept cash as a form of payment for the monthly and annual dues. All of our memberships require that you put billing information on file so that the monthly and annual dues may be deducted from either a checking account and/or credit card.
We are also unable to accept payments in full unless that club location is offering a paid in full membership promotion at the time. Only in the exception of the paid in full memberships do we allow cash as a form of payment, however this membership is not available at all locations. Since our locations are independently owned and operated, you would want to check with the club location to see if they are offering such a promotion.
How do I sign-in for tanning or chair massage services?
Tanning is on a first come-first served basis. Members just need to stop by the front desk to add their name to the sign-in sheet for an available slot. You can sign in before, during or after your workout. Please note that eye protection must be shown to the staff member on duty upon tanning. The sign-in process is the same for the massage chairs. The staff member will give you a token to operate the chair for each use.
Can you explain the two billing section for on-line joins?
There are two billing sections on the online join form. The first section is to pay for the total amount that is due at sign up. A credit card or a debit card is required since the total will be charged upon enrollment. If you desire to pay using cash or a check, you may do so by signing up at the location.
The second section is to pay for monthly dues and the annual fee. You have the option here to use a checking account or a credit card (note: some locations accept a checking account only).
What is a Lunk Alarm?
The Lunk Alarm is something we have in all of our locations nationwide, as part of who we are and what makes us different. A LunkTM is someone who grunts, drops weights or judges. This alarm goes off when someone is grunting at the gym, drops weights or is judging others/making others feel uncomfortable. At Planet Fitness, we do not cater to bodybuilders, dropping weights, or grunting. We want our members to feel comfortable in a non-intimidating atmosphere. We are about general fitness, and most of our members are in fact first time users of a gym.
