“Many of us have found ourselves stuck in the ruts of the couch life over the past several months, but now it’s more important than ever to get moving and get into a fitness routine,” said Jeremy Tucker, chief marketing officer at Planet Fitness. “Even just 30 minutes of physical activity a day can make a difference – and is recommended for all adults – and Planet Fitness is here to help no matter your fitness level or goals. We encourage everyone to come in and see first-hand just how clean, safe and spacious our clubs are.”


Planet Fitness’ top priority remains keeping its members and employees safe. New and returning members alike will see first-hand the enhanced safety and sanitization protocols at its well-ventilated and spacious clubs, such as:

  • Touchless check-in (simply download the free Planet Fitness mobile app to scan in at the front desk)
  • A crowd meter on the Planet Fitness mobile app that allows members to check the club capacity in real-time before leaving the house
  • Increased sanitization every 20 minutes to continually clean and sanitize high-touch areas
  • Social Fitnessing™ in which some cardio machines and equipment are marked out of use so members have ample space and separation for physical distancing
  • Mask requirements, except while actively working out, and in accordance with local restrictions
  • Employees receiving daily temperature checks and personal protective equipment, including having to wear a mask at all times


With more than 70 percent of American adults1 overweight or obese, it is important now more than ever to explore safe, fun and exciting ways to stay healthy. Chronic conditions like obesity, diabetes, hypertension and heart disease increase the risk of complications from COVID-19, and studies have proven that physical activity has tremendous physical and mental health benefits. Still, only 23 percent of adults2 are reaching the federal recommended amount of physical activity – 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity each week – according to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). In addition, research shows that even 20 minutes of exercise3 can have anti-inflammatory effects that boost your immune system. Studies have also shown that exercise can treat depression (mild to moderate) by incorporating 15 minutes a day or walking for an hour – it reduces the risk of major depression by 26 percent4.


Planet Fitness offers extremely low prices and a variety of benefits, including a hassle-free environment, brand name cardio and strength equipment, fully equipped locker rooms, flat screen televisions and much more.
