Here’s a very funny video that The Daily Show on Comedy Central did on Planet Fitness and their “no meathead” policy. Enjoy!

    • Hmm, seems to me that there is some research out there that grunting actually improves potential force generation. Can anyone back me up on this one? This is just too funny to me, I guess I’m a meathead or a lunk. Oh well, I will never be a member at Planet Fitness and I’m okay with that!

        Planet Fitness should go find another planet to do their business. Their rules about grunting, breathing heavy etc. are ridiculous.

    • LOL…oh that was so funny. I loved it.

      This was awesome. That woman represented Planet Fitness perfectly. In my experience in the fitness industry most body builders, olympic lifters, powerlifters and “meatheads” of all types have been some of the kindest people I have ever met. I would rather be in a gym full of “lunkheads” than a Planet Fitness, any time!

    • We at Topham Street Gym in Tarzana, CA WELCOME you Lunks who wear Do Rags! Come on down and grunt with us!

      This was hilarious. I have seen PF called Planet Fatness on YouTube clips and showing this alarm that goes off when someone grunts. Unbelievable.:-)

    • I agree David, that is so funny. We solved some of those issues, by having multiple rooms. But I do like that lunk alarm! 🙂

      Planet Fitness are a disgrace to the Fitness Industry. They say Judgement Free but really it should be Service Free, Quality Free as they sign as many as possible and hope the hell you don’t turn up. If you want a cheap membership that you don’t intend to use or if you do turn up but don’t want any customer service than Planet Fitness is for you.

    • It’s not the grunting that’s the issue it’s the fact that 9 out of 10 meat heads grunt to act like a big man!

    • This is a crack up!

      The great news at the end, he went to more functional movements … simply moving SH*# back and forth!

    • Too Funny

      This was great! I want to play it at my gym on the monitor if I can figure out how to do that!

      Wow, I’m glad I didn’t join Planet Fitness! I’m overweight and trying to slim down, and I don’t feel the least bit judged or intimidated by “grunting meatheads (or Lunkheads)”. In fact, they’re some of the nicest and most helpful people I have ever met. Absolutely ridiculous! I love the gym I’m at, Lunkheads and all!
