TIMONIUM, MD—August 7, 2023—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—has recently upgraded two of its locations.
Planet Fitness Reisterstown (11989A Reisterstown Rd., Reisterstown, MD 21136) originally opened in November 2011, and just completed $1.1 million worth of renovations. The 16,783-square-foot facility now features a newly designed PF Black Card Spa area, new exterior signage, new lobby tile, new rubber flooring, new paint and wallpaper, and granite countertops.
Planet Fitness Columbia (Shady Brook St.), TN (1910 Shady Brook Street, Columbia, TN, 38401) originally opened in April 2013, and just underwent $875,000 worth of renovations. Along with new exterior signage, rubber flooring, and wall coverings, the 17,430-square-foot facility now features a new PF Black Card Spa area.
Spa amenities at both clubs include HydroMassage beds, massage chairs, tanning beds, and a Recovery Lounge, which offers a multi-sensory experience combining hot, cold, and compression therapy to help members relieve pain, recover, and improve circulation.
They also contain a RelaxSpace Wellness Pod where Black Card members can relax, reset, and focus on their mental health for up to 15 minutes. Members can select between a variety of videos, scents, and even temperatures while learning more about diet, nutrition, breathing, and the benefits of exercise. Plus, the Wellness Pod tracks heart rates and encourages members to use breathing and meditation exercises to reduce anxiety levels, disconnect, and recharge with a unique, multi-sensory experience.
“We are committed to reinvesting in the Reisterstown and Columbia communities and are thrilled to unveil our brand new Judgement Free facilities to our existing and soon-to-be members,” said Victor Brick, co-owner of Ohana Growth Partners (OGP), a franchise division of Planet Fitness. “Already, we’ve experienced an outstanding response from the community and encourage everyone to come check out the club, meet our friendly staff, get a tour, and see what the Judgement Free Zone is all about.”
Memberships, starting at $10/month for the Classic membership, include free fitness classes led by a certified fitness trainer through the pe@pf program. The PF Black Card membership (described above) is $24.99/month.
