Behind the Curtain

Good Sunday!

After a hard days work at, I decided to come home to relax.

Employees at are privileged to a lot of things. Sure we get free samples, swag, and we get to work with some of the most beautiful models in the fitness industry, but that is not all we do while at

We are there for one purpose. That is to help  anyone, regardless of experience, in their fitness needs.

This Planet Fitness commercial is a little old, but it is a perfect example of what people think of when they first think of

Take a look!

But this is so off it is not even funny, well it is still pretty funny. The main actor in this commercial is in a group of maybe a couple thousand others like him. This group of men and women in the fitness industry work about six months to get that cut and muscular. Then they get ready for the camera by shaving, tanning, and getting oiled up to do photo shoots, calendars, commercials, and usually topping off the season with a Body Building or Fitness show like The Olympia or The Arnold.

I am not saying this is wrong. The Body Builders and Fitness Models look great while they are in this flash bulb season, but they have a secret.

When the last camera flash fades away, these people live normal lives. Sure they maybe have more muscles or have abs you can wash on, but it is their job to look that good. It takes a lit of work, sometimes hours a day in the gym to get to the level of huge-ness some of these guys are at. The average fitness enthusiast may make it to the gym 2-3 times per week, if they are lucky.

They don’t have access to the most cutting edge chemical compounds or top shelf trainers. They have their local gyms and maybe a few guys at the gym who may or may not know what they are talking about.

Again, this is not bad. This could be considered as the average.

I just wanted to point out that when you discover Greg’s advice is not getting a little confusing or you can’t figure out the difference between Protein Isolate and Casein, there are people out there waiting for your questions at

It is their job to answer those pesky and confusing questions or at least try their hardest to. Sometimes even Doctors don’t know what that fungus in-between your toes is.

The team has assembled to assist in everyone’s fitness needs are not a bunch of guys and gals roaming around an office looking for stuff to pick up and then put down again.

Sure there is a handful of representatives that have competed in a show or two. They can tell you how hard the diets are, where to get the shiny underoos you have to wear on stage, and what gets rid of spray tan the quickest.

But they also have the normal level of fitness minded people who make it to the gym two to three times a week that also have access to one of the largest archive of fitness articles on the web. These customer service ninjas also try to keep up with all the new supplements that come out to distinguish which ones are good and which ones are snake oil concentrate.

I wanted to get this information out there because I truly believe in and their mission of helping everyone, regardless if they have Pro Card status or are just working out for the first time. You have a question, they will do their best to answer.

I promise I did not get paid anything extra to write this. These are my opinions and are not designed to be a sales ad. The customer service agents do NOT EARN A COMMISSION ON SALES, so don’t be afraid to call, email, or chat in whenever you have a fitness related question.

That’s all for me today,


PS – WordPress made all the‘s blue, not me. I apologize if it is distracting but it is the company name as well as the web address.
