I’m curious. If I have to take my ten hour test break every day, does anyone park at a 24 hour place like planet fitness to get a workout in and a shower? I know the PF by my house has a huge parking lot and there are sometimes trucks parked there, but I don’t know if that is common or not.

It would be difficult to land in a parking lot with a planet fitness regularly.

A huge parking lot doesn't always mean it's ok to park there. A lot of trucks may be parked there, but it's at their own risk. The owner of that lot may decide to enforce no parking one night and those trucks can end up ticketed and/or booted. They can also be asked to leave which would be tough with no time left on the clock.

Rainy / Kearsey posted a really cool link meant for Prime drivers, but good for all, that shows gyms who have truck parking by state.

I dang meant to save it, but I didn't. sorry.gif

Perhaps you can peruse her comments, and find it? I can try, if I have time; it's my hubby's only day off; he worked half day yesterday.

Better yet; maybe she will show up and repost.

Wish you well, good sir~!

Here is the link with over 300 truck friendly gyms. But they are closed due to COVID. Scroll all the way down the page and it lists it by state.

A gym in my area of NJ has been fighting to stay open and the owners got arrested.

That site is pretty good for various exercises you can do on the truck and food choices etc.

Scroll Down for GYMS

I go to PF at least 3 times a week, my success to visiting so frequently is that I am creative with my parking and willing to walk 2 to 3 miles if necessary. Get on google maps, you can find a walmart half the time to park at that is within a block or two away.

Do you park overnight at whatever Walmart? Or just park there till you finish at PF and then keep driving?
