Planet Fitness Rockville recently relocated from a 15,360-square-foot space at 1776 E Jefferson St., Rockville, MD, to this new 30,000-square-foot space in the Montrose Shopping Center.

“We’re thrilled to offer the Rockville community a non-intimidating environment that’s double the size of the previous location, and includes more fitness equipment, better parking and easy access to the Capital Beltway,” said C. Victor Brick, co-owner of Ohana Growth Partners, a franchise division of Planet Fitness. “The new space provides a bigger and better option for our members and new members alike.”

Open and staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Planet Fitness Rockville features new Matrix cardio machines, a new functional training area, new Matrix training cycles, and new rowers and Sci fit, as well as a 30-Minute Express Circuit, fully equipped locker rooms, and numerous flat screen televisions.

An expanded PF Black Card Spa has a RelaxSpace Wellness Pod—Planet Fitness’ first in Maryland—where its 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.

Additional PF Black Card Spa amenities include Hybrid Tanning (which was not offered in the previous Rockville location), plus double the number of HydroMassage beds (four) and massage chairs (four).
