I go to Planet Fitness simply because it's cheap and three minutes from my house. For $10 a month I can do without deadlift.
It does get crowded around the free weights on week nights and the "lunk alarm" is the dumbest thing ever, but it's not a big issue.
I also work out with a personal trainer once a week so PF is sort of like a supplement to keep me busy between those butt-kicking sessions.
I went to PF with my BIL a few times. The lunk alarm and warning was the first thing I noticed. I decided to look for some free weights so I could test it out. There were none.
