Lunk Alarm

A trip to the gym today made me feel the need to briefly expand on Planet Fitness' lunk alarm. For those of you who have never heard of it, Planet Fitness isn't a fan of show-offs since it's a judgement free zone so the lunk alarm is supposed to be sounded if people come in clanking weights or slamming them, or for grunting and getting all super body builder. When I first started, I didn't know that employees sounded the alarm, I thought it was automatic. So I avoided the weight machines for a long time just in case. Then I finally started using them but I would be so focused on not having my weights accidentally smack together that it wasn't a very good workout.

Then I stopped being a moron and realized the employees are supposed to sound it. Which at my Planet Fitness, doesn't seem to happen. I'm okay with that, I don't think it's a big deal anyway but IF they were really all about this lunk alarm, it would have been going off a lot tonight. 

A group of high school-ish guys came in and were using the free weights fairly close to my elliptical. In about a 10 minute span I heard them smashing weights around several times while I was full spaced out workout mode with super loud ear buds in my ears. It was obvious they were getting down and dirty with the dumbbells Which again, I don't mind but if Planet Fitness is so fond of advertising this lunk alarm of theirs, then they should use it!

Of course my Planet Fitness trainers can never seem to get their nose out of their chinese food long enough to notice anything anyway. 

I do enjoy the free tootsie rolls.
