HAGERSTOWN, MD—December 2021—Planet Fitness – one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers with more members than any other fitness brand – recently completed over $1 million worth of renovations to its Hagerstown club located at 1121 Maryland Ave., Hagerstown, MD 21740, which originally opened in 2009.
During a four-month period (which included a one-month closure), the facility was expanded by 4,000-square-feet of space. Now totaling 21,250-square-feet, the club features a new PF Black Card Spa area, new strength and cardio equipment, TRX suspension training, updated locker rooms, new entrance way floor tile and a new front desk. A grand reopening celebration will take place in early 2022.
"Our investment and improvements to the Hagerstown club will further position us as a state-of the-art fitness center, where members can enjoy our spacious, clean, “judgement free” environment, our free unlimited fitness training classes, and our vast selection of cardio and strength equipment,” said Victor Brick, co-owner of PF Growth Partners, LLC, a franchise division of Planet Fitness. “We encourage the community to visit the club and experience the new features for themselves.”
Open and staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Planet Fitness Hagerstown features state-of-the-art cardio machines and strength equipment, 30-Minute Express Circuit, fully equipped locker rooms with day lockers and showers, numerous flat screen televisions, HydroMassage beds, massage chairs, tanning beds and more in a hassle-free, non-intimidating environment.
Planet Fitness’ top priority continues to be keeping its members and employees safe with enhanced COVID-19 safety and sanitization protocols at its well-ventilated and spacious clubs, such as:
- Touchless check-in via the free Planet Fitness App
- A Crowd Meter on the Planet Fitness App that allows members to check club capacity in real-time before even leaving the house
- Increased sanitization every 20 minutes to continually clean and sanitize high-touch areas, with cleaning stations available for member use
- Mask policies in accordance with local guidelines
Memberships, starting at $10/month, include free fitness classes led by a certified trainer through the pe@pf program. PF Black Card membership includes the ability to bring a guest every day at no additional charge, access to all 2,100+ Planet Fitness locations in all 50 states, as well as access to massage beds, chairs and tanning, among other benefits, which vary by location and pending local restrictions.
Additionally, Planet Fitness has extended its judgement free philosophy outside of its gyms and into communities that need it most with its national philanthropic initiative, “The Judgement Free Generation." Together with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), the nation’s leading youth development organization, supporting millions of kids and teens during the critical out-of-school time, Planet Fitness aims to empower a generation of teens to grow up contributing to a more judgement free planet – a place where everyone feels accepted and like they belong.
