  • Danez Smith at AWP
    Richard Saker/Contour by Getty Images As we end Black History Month, here is one of my favorite poets, Danez Smith, who writes on intersectionality between their Black and Queer identities. At the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) conference in Kansas City, MO, I had the opportunity to personally meet Smith, and they are […]
  • Lying in Memoir
    Lauren Slater crafts diligent, depictive metaphors in narrative, and I hate her writing, simultaneously. Should there be lying in memoir? In her book, Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir (2000), Slater crafts lies from epilepsy to nunneries to doctor visits and proposed peer reviewed theses to AA meetings. However, within these lies, she allows us to question […]

Planet Fitness comes to Bowling Green

A new Planet Fitness location will be opening up in downtown Bowling Green on Tuesday, Nov. 21. A grand opening event will be taking place on Tuesday at 4 p.m.

“There will be a ribbon cutting with local officials, giveaways and new local members can join for $1 down and $10 a month through Nov. 16,” Planet Fitness press agent Dominique Wiggins said. The new location is at 1135 S. Main St.

There are two types of memberships available at Planet Fitness. One is $10 a month and the other is $21.99 per month. The $10 membership comes with the benefits of a T-shirt, unlimited access to your home Planet Fitness and unlimited fitness training. All members can also participate in Pizza Mondays and Bagel Tuesdays.

The $21.99 membership, or Black Card membership, comes with all of the benefits of the cheaper membership, plus the use of all Planet Fitness locations, guest privileges, tanning, massage chairs and half price cooler drinks. Some locations also allow hydromassage, haircuts and body enhancement for Black Card members. Other perks of the Black Card include 20 percent off all Reebok products and 25 percent off Australian Gold products on their website.

According to the Planet Fitness website, “It doesn’t matter if your legs have never seen a squat machine before. We believe how you work out is totally up to you.”

Planet Fitness promotes the Judgement Free Zone. This Judgement Free Zone idea allows members to feel comfortable working out, no matter their skill or experience level.

“There are people there of every size, shape and fitness level,” said one member who gave a testimonial on their website.

Planet Fitness also offers a program called PE@PF where trainers show new members around the gym and teach them how to use certain equipment and help them with anything else they may need. These trainers can also give participants a fitness program to help them stay on track and reach their goals.

Along with the Judgement Free Zone, Planet Fitness also partners with Boys and Girls Club of America to inspire a “Judgement Free Generation.” They do this by volunteering at Boys and Girls Clubs, hosting programs on anti-bullying and pro-kindness and offering a Judgement Free Generation Scholarship program for exceptional Boys and Girls Club teen leaders.
