At Franklin Learning Center, there’s a local Planet Fitness located down the street at 510 N Broad St. There are some FLC students who start their fitness activities right after school ends and towards the gym. 

 

Two students in FLC talk about their journey of doing the world of fitness and going to Planet Fitness after school. A music major sophomore in FLC named Patrick Webb shared his own experience when beginning his fitness journey, “I felt…a very skinny feeling, a little bit of body dysmorphia every time I look in the mirror…” Patrick stated that he wanted to change that feeling and sculpt his body into a piece of art. 

 

Sophomore Webb then shares his routine and why he goes to Planet Fitness, “I have a training regimen…[So] on Mondays, I start with [push exercises]… then on Tuesdays, I do a pole day…then on Wednesdays, I do legs and I repeat that and… I [also] start with heavyweights, [and] do compound movements like squats, bench, and deadlift.” Webb describes what Planet Fitness is like after school. “[It’s loud and it’s very crowded] on…Mondays and Fridays usually,” and [there are] people are like in Planet Fitness [that are] … beginners and out of shape people [who want to get better], that was based on Webb’s observations at his time at Planet Fitness. 

 

Another FLC sophomore named Jesus Ramos also has a training regimen. He expresses his first motivation into fitness: “I think I started going to the gym until eighth grade but my trainer motivated me to go and that’s why I started going ever since,” Ramos stated that he used generally mostly all of the machines in Planet Fitness. 

 

Webb and Ramos spend about one hour to one hour and thirty minutes doing their training regimen in Planet Fitness. 

 

Both Ramos and Webb said that they would stop by at their home before going to Planet Fitness or get a meal that is high in protein. “I have a high-protein diet. So when I get home, I eat some chicken breasts out of the can or some rice…when I get home after the gym, I like protein shakes, [and] It’s like 90 grams of protein,” according to Webb, Ramos has a similar diet and routine as well.

 

Lastly, Webb gave words of motivation for the people who are getting into fitness to stay strong. As well, Ramos says to listen to Vegeta from the anime “Dragon Ball Z” as your mentor throughout the fitness journey.
