HAMPTON, N.H. (April 11, 2019) – Planet Fitness, Inc., one of the largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers in the United States, invites everyone – whether a member of the Judgement Free Zone® or not – to get their “rest on” from tax season stress with a free HydroMassage® at any of the more than 1,700 Planet Fitness locations nationwide. The limited-time offer* is available from April 11 – 20; to redeem, de-stressers need only bring in a coupon, which will be available at PlanetFitness.com/Hydro beginning April 11.

Available all day, every day to all Planet Fitness Black Card® members in the PF Black Card® Spa, HydroMassage provides a convenient way to enjoy the relaxing benefits of a massage, typically enjoyed either pre-workout to loosen tight muscles or post-workout as a cool-down. Travelling jets move up and down the body with wave-like streams of heated water, allowing users to select the exact points where they would like to concentrate the massage, select the desired massage pressure, adjust the speed and even hold the massage in any given area.

 

“Especially during stressful times like tax season, we all know how important it is to get a few moments of relaxation,” commented Paul Lunter, HydroMassage President. “Over the last 10 years, we’ve heard from so many who have been helped by HydroMassage, and Planet Fitness has been gracious to open its doors again this year to those who need a little rest and relaxation nationwide. We encourage as many people as possible to take advantage of the free massage offer.”

 

For those looking to “work out” their tax-related tension, Brian Zehetner – Director of Health and Fitness for Planet Fitness – developed a one-of-a-kind 1,040-second long workout (17 minutes) in the spirit of the 1040 tax form. The exercise program covers a full body workout designed to help you relieve all of that filing-related stress:
