Planet Fitness is pleased to announce the opening of our new, state-of-the-art facility just down the road from our previous one, at 440 Boston Post Road, Orange, Conn. Planet Fitness hosted a Grand Opening—complete with an official ribbon-cutting on May 14. The event included food, raffles, music and fun giveaways, as well as a special introductory sign up offer.
All Planet Fitness members enjoy unlimited access to their home club, free fitness training with a certified Planet Fitness trainer, as well as the support of their friendly, knowledgeable staff anytime you need it, all in a judgement-free atmosphere.
At 25,230 square feet, the brand-new facility meets every member’s fitness needs, including a variety of the latest cardio and strength equipment. PF Black Card® members receive the following benefits:
- Two lay-down tanning beds;
- Two stand-up tanning beds;
- Two hydro-massage lounges;
- Two massage chairs;
- One red-light therapy machine; and
- Three hydro-lounges.
“We are pleased to provide the Orange community a brand-new facility where members can make their health — and their happiness — priorities, regardless of fitness level,” says Matt Wilcox, Senior Vice President Of Marketing. “We pride ourselves on creating a safe, energetic environment, where everyone feels accepted and respected while we help them achieve their fitness goals, whatever they may be.”
