Planet Fitness Responds to "Pinterest Stress" with "No Pintimidation" Relief Effort
Gym Franchise Extends No Gymtimidation Philosophy to Pinterest by Encouraging Perfectly Imperfect Pins
NEWINGTON, N.H., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Planet Fitness, the innovative health club franchise known for its Judgement Free Zone® and friendly prices, is responding to the results of a recent survey conducted by TODAY Moms of 7,000 U.S. mothers, of which 42 percent said that they suffer from "Pinterest stress" stemming from anxiety that they can't live up to the ideals suggested by images of domestic perfection posted on the site.
As a result, Planet Fitness is launching a relief effort dubbed "No Pintimidation" that encourages pinning perfectly imperfect content that people can feel good about. Fans can visit www.nopintimidation.com to upload a photo that might just be a little too perfect, and "de-pintimidate" it by adding embellishments like cats, unicorns or phrases that call out the perfection.
"Planet Fitness is the proud home of the Judgement Free Zone® and we believe in No Gymtimidation and no intimidation," saidJamie Medeiros, vice president of marketing at Planet Fitness. "That philosophy doesn't just live within the walls of our clubs, but everywhere we are, including Pinterest. We thought this was a great way to encourage everyone to de-stress the web and have a little fun at the same time."
Currently, there are approximately 650 Planet Fitness clubs nationwide and more than 4.5 million members. To find a Planet Fitness near you or to join online, visit www.PlanetFitness.com.
