Our History

Planet Fitness was founded in 1992, in Dover, NH. In the beginning, it operated much like every other gym in its small hometown and catered to the same small percentage of the population in the U.S. who worked out and belonged to a health club.

PF’s owners quickly recognized that there was a greater opportunity to serve a much larger segment of the population. They asked themselves, “Why does 80-85% of the population not belong to a gym?” The answer? First-time and casual gym users didn’t like the “look at me” attitudes and behaviors found in typical gyms, and they didn’t want to have to pay a lot of money to give fitness a try.

So they completely changed the gym environment, both in attitude and format, creating the non-intimidating, low-cost model that has revolutionized the gym industry. Planet Fitness became known as the “Judgement Free Zone®” – a welcoming and friendly community where people could feel comfortable regardless of their fitness level.

Today, Planet Fitness has become one of the largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers in the United States by number of members and locations. With more than 1,400 locations in 49 states, Canada and Latin America, Planet Fitness has continued to spread its unique mission of enhancing people’s lives by providing an affordable, high-quality fitness experience in a welcoming, non-intimidating environment.

Member Testimonials

I just joined PF a few days ago … I was so nervous because I’ve never been to a gym, but everyone there made me feel so welcome. I really appreciate the customer service you provide. Thank you for helping me change my life!
The day I walked into Planet Fitness I weighed 315 pounds. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and I wanted to do something about it. Joining Planet Fitness may have saved my life. Since the first day I walked into Planet Fitness and started doing a workout program, I’ve lost 50lbs and have dropped several clothes sizes! I feel great. Everyone who sees me now tells me how good I look. All I can say to Planet Fitness is thank you for a great place to work out!
I was diagnosed with autism when I was 7 years old and I have been bullied badly, even out in public. So when I got my membership in March of 2013 I was scared of getting bullied. Been going since then and NOT ONCE have I gotten picked on. The staff doesn’t care. They watch out for me. They greet me with my first name. ‘Hi Jacob, how are you?’ I feel safe and I feel independent. I put on muscle. I LOVE Planet Fitness.
The PF staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I am always greeted with a smile and feel that the staff is happy to be there and help me with questions.
There are people there of every age, shape, size and fitness level.
The best gym I have ever belonged to... not intimidating because it attracts so many different types!
None of the attitude that you find at (other gyms)!
