Why is the Planet Fitness chain of health clubs trying to alienate people who love to work out? [Via Slate.com]
"Maybe you've seen the one where a greased up Schwarzenegger-type swaggers through the gym repeating the mantra, "I pick things up and put them down.
" Or the one where another "lunk"—that's what Planet Fitness calls these sorts of people—struggles to tie his shoes

is a truly excellent web app that lets you track workouts, nutrition and fitness goals. Prints grocery lists, lets you find workout buddies, etc. Very aesthetically pleasing, too. Considerably easier to use than Fitday
