Here, we’ve selected a gym as an example from the map given, i.e., Planet Fitness (Chicago Illinois).
After selecting a gym, as you can see, it will show you it’s the exact location, its crowd meter, and the timings of the gym. To move further in the signing-up process, you need to click on “View Memberships”.
View Memberships’ button will take you to a page where you can see all the available pricing plans at that specific gym you’ve chosen for registration. Here in this example, you can see you have three options to choose from including PF Black card membership, Classic membership, and Paid in full.

To choose your membership plan, click on the “Select” button under the respective pricing plan.
Right after selecting your membership plan, you’ll be navigated to a page where you’ll be asked to provide some personal and very basic information. The page will appear as shown here in the image below.

An asterisk over a certain field means it is mandatory information without filling which you cannot proceed further.

However, you need to provide all the details correctly otherwise you won’t be able to sign up.
After filling in all the information, click on the “Proceed to Payment” button that appeared in the right bottom corner.
Proceeding to payment will take you to a form where you need to add your payment details. On this page, you’ll find all the payment details related to your membership plan. The fee mentioned at the start “$10.21” is the start-up fee that is mandatory to be paid to initiate your membership plan.
This page has two forms in which you need to fill out all the required details in a correct manner. The first form requires you to add your credit card details including its number, expiry date, CVV, and billing zip code. Here in the image below, we’ve added sample values.

The second half of the form mentions the amount of monthly and annual fees associated with your selected plan. It also mentions the dates on which the deduction will be made by Planet Fitness. Here, Planet Fitness requires you to add the Account Holder’s first and last name, along with the account number and the account routing number, which is mentioned on the checkbook of the account holder.
