Planet Fitness Black Card Perks
Planet Fitness is a gym that's the butt of a lot of jokes. They catch a lot of flack for their Pizza Mondays, No Grunting Rules and their Lunk Alarm. Planet Fitness isn't necessarily the best gym out there but it's a heck of a bang for your buck and it's my personal gym. Now most people join Planet Fitness because of the cheap $10 per month membership. Planet Fitness does however offer a "Premium" membership or their Black Card for $20 per month and we've noticed many people out there have been searching for and were curious about what benefits come with shelling out the extra $10 and becoming a Planet Fitness Black Card Member. So in today's post we're going to cover just that, what benefits do you get for being a Planet Fitness Black Card Holder?
So on the chart below you'll see what the perks of being a Black Card Member are. Probably the biggest perk in my opinion is being able to visit clubs ie locations besides your home location. I'm a regular card member, however I do have one Planet Fitness near my home and another near my work and I could see it being nice to be able to visit both depending on my schedule on a given day. This could also come in handy when traveling.
Another great perk with the Black Card is the ability to bring a buddy or a guest anytime. It's great having a workout buddy to hold you accountable or to be able to trade tips and tricks with. Many gyms may charge you an extra $5 or $10 to bring a friend so it's a nice perk you get unlimited guest visits with this plan.
Beyond those perks you also gain access to the Black Card Members area where you can take advantage of Free Tanning, Free use of the HydroMassage, and Free use of Massage Chairs. You'll also get a 50% discount on drinks at Planet Fitness as well as 20% OFF at Reebok.com.
So is the Planet Fitness Black Card and the perks worth it? I think that depends on your needs however there's definitely some great perks for an additional $10 bucks. The ability to visit other locations as well as the ability to bring a friend anytime is worth it on it's own, so the free tanning and free use of massage beds and chairs, along with discounts on beverages and Reebok gear is just a nice additional perk.
