    Someone should pull the fire alarm while the lunk alarm is going off.

    rofl i never knew what a lunk was... but this is the funniest, yet gayest thing i have ever heard of in my life. I swear i would pay 10 bucks to get lunked at a planet fitness as many times as i could before getting kicked out.

    I'd go in and grunt on the bench with just the bar and two 25's.

    Just to see what happens.

    If a trainer came over to say something you would have to scream "I thought you weren't supposed to JUDGE me!!"

    Except there are no benches, so this won't work. Hrm.

    I thought there were 2 or 3?

    Doing the same on the machine with a 100 pounds on the Chest press would get the same result.

    Or curl with a 5 pound dumbell lol

    Next time the lunk alarm goes off, act like it startled you and drop to the floor while squatting. Then sue the F'n balls off of them for all the "back pain" and suffering your experiencing...

    They probably have you sign some tiny fine print "LUNK" text before working out to not have them be held liable for that.

    What kinda crappy practice is this? (I was actually thinking of joining PF cause right now they're having a $99 a year promotion.) Their philosophy is an ideal intimidation free zone...yet I would feel intimidated as all hell for fear of that alarm going off just for doing what occurs naturally.

    Hopefully the'll be a nice lawsuit brought against them.

    Planet fitness makes more money on people that don't go to the gym. True story.

    I concur. Nothing that stupid is a bargain at 10 dollars.

    You can't claim harassment. If you tried to claim something close to harassment, you'd have to prove damages.
