"Our mission is to offer anyone and everyone a friendly, non-intimidating atmosphere to exercise at a very affordable price." Prices at Planet Fitness are extremely low, and start at just $10 a month. Planet Fitness stands apart from many other fitness clubs, providing a relaxed atmosphere and a low tolerance for bodybuilders. Committed to helping people of various fitness levels, clubs have a Lunk Alarm®, which is an actual beacon light and siren intended to deter members from the hard-core, look-at-me behavior found in too many gyms.
