MARSHALL, Texas, Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Planet Fitness, the innovative health club franchise known for its Judgement Free Zone® and affordable prices, announced a new location coming to Marshall, Texas, on East End Boulevard. The 19,000 square foot club will open in early December, and is currently offering special pre-sale memberships for just $1 down and $10 a month with no commitment.
"Because we are focused on general fitness, intimidating behavior such as grunting or dropping weights is not allowed. We have an obligation to maintain a comfortable, non-intimidating atmosphere for our members," said Trey Owen, owner of the club. "We will have a fitness trainer on staff to provide instruction and guidance free of charge," Owen continued. Fitness instruction sessions will be available throughout the week and are included in every membership.
Planet Fitness offers an extensive selection of cardio equipment including treadmills, ellipticals, arc trainers, and stationary bikes all pointed at 70" televisions for member entertainment while working out. Planet Fitness also offers a popular 30-minute PF Express circuit room, dedicated abs/stretching room, a full complement of user-friendly strength equipment and full locker rooms that include free day-use lockers, private changing rooms and tile showers.
Planet Fitness prides itself on providing a high-quality experience at an exceptional value and being home of the Judgement Free Zone®, where members experience a hassle-free, non-intimidating environment. Each club also features the brand's iconic "Lunk Alarm" – a purple and yellow siren on the wall used as a light-hearted, gentle reminder that grunting, dropping weights or judging others is not permitted.
Membership includes a variety of other benefits, including unlimited small group fitness instruction by a certified trainer through the pe @ pf ® program. As a member appreciation gesture, Planet Fitness also provides free pizza on the first Monday of every month, and free bagels on the second Tuesday of every month while supplies last, as a reminder that it's okay to treat yourself every once in a while after a good workout.
The PF Black Card® membership, which is $19.99 a month, includes additional amenities such as the ability to bring a guest every day at no additional charge and access to all 1,000 Planet Fitness locations, as well as access to massage beds and chairs and tanning, among other benefits*.
Additionally, Planet Fitness spotlights its members with "Planet of Triumphs," an online community that celebrates all accomplishments and inspirational stories of Planet Fitness members. Planet of Triumphs provides an online platform for members to recognize their triumphs (big or small), share their stories and encourage others, reinforcing our belief that everyone belongs.
