Wish You Were Here

New Year’s Eve tradition would not be complete without wishes for the upcoming year. Planet Fitness is giving you a way to share your wish as a piece of physical Times Square NYE confetti. These wishes symbolize the collective optimism that the turning of the calendar brings and the shared anticipation of what lies ahead. Planet Fitness encourages you to express all your hopes and dreams in eager anticipation of the year to come.  

Even if you can’t make a trip to New York City on NYE, you still have the chance to take part in the iconic Times Square celebration. So, close your eyes, and make a wish!

Maybe you’ll wish for something to fuel your fitness journey like hitting your daily step goal, or take on a new adventure by wishing to travel abroad with your best friends. You may even wish for more wishes! Whatever your wish is for 2024, you can achieve it with the power of Big Fitness Energy™.  

There are 2 locations to submit your wishes:

  • On the Planet Fitness website through Thursday, December 21st
