COLUMBUS, Ga., July 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Planet Fitness, the innovative health club franchise known for its Judgement Free Zone® and affordable prices, announced plans to open its second location in Columbus, GA. The club is scheduled to open by mid-August and is located at 5600 Milgen Road, at the corner of Woodruff Farm Road and Milgen Road, next to Ollie's.
Between now and August 16, you can join the new Planet Fitness for just $1 down and $10 a month, with no commitment online or at the Columbus club. In addition to the sale, the club will be hosting a series of three-day events on July 29th through 31st, August 12th through the 14th, and August 19th through the 21st that will be filled with activities, food, fun and a chance to win a Planet Fitness mountain bike, whitewater rafting tickets and more.
The new 20,000 square foot Planet Fitness will offer an extensive selection of the latest cardio equipment including treadmills, ellipticals, arc trainers, stair climbers and stationary bikes, each connected to its own HDTV; state of the art strength equipment for both upper and lower body, a 30-Minute Express Circuit and luxurious locker rooms with day lockers and showers. The club will also feature a PF Black Card Spa, with multi-level tanning, HydroMassage® beds and lounges as well as reclining massage chairs. Unlimited fitness training is also included in all memberships at no additional charge. Once open, the club will be open and fully staffed 24 hours from Monday at 12:00 a.m. through Friday night at 9:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
"We're proud to bring another Planet Fitness to Columbus," said Planet Fitness franchisee Shane McGuiness. "Our mission is to offer anyone and everyone a friendly, non-intimidating atmosphere at a very affordable price."
Planet Fitness prides itself on offering extremely affordable memberships starting at only $10 a month and a unique Judgement Free Zone® unlike any other gym, 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 to gently remind people 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 [email protected]® program. In addition, as a member appreciation gesture, Planet Fitness 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.
The PF Black Card® membership which is $19.99 a month includes additional benefits such as the ability to bring a guest every day at no additional charge, use of HydroMassage® beds, and lounges, tanning as well as access to all 1,100+ Planet Fitness locations.
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.
