“Planet Fitness is looking to make it as easy as possible over the next 12 days to help everyone find their fitness groove without feeling the pinch financially,” said Jessica Correa, senior vice president of marketing at Planet Fitness. “With our zero pressure, no commitment offer, we invite everyone to come check out Planet Fitness and see first-hand what the Judgement Free Zone® is all about.”

In addition to the May membership offer, Brian Zehetner, Planet Fitness’ director of health & fitness, shares workout tips* tailored for women across various life stages in celebration of Mother’s Day (and beyond). Zehetner’s tips include:

  1. Moms-To-Be: Women who are expecting don’t need to shy away from exercising responsibly. Even if you haven’t worked out regularly, it’s okay to start and increase your activity level over time as long as it’s approved by your physician. Specifically, combining cardio and light strength training has many benefits. Even exercises involving the core abdominal muscles and squats – often considered no-no’s during pregnancy – are okay for both mom-to-be and baby. Just be sure to avoid lying on your back when working the stomach.
  2. Entering Motherhood: Don’t stress about sticking to a workout regimen at this stage. New moms can gently ease into exercise in the weeks following delivery by simply moving around, whether on a treadmill or in the great outdoors. Once cleared by a physician for more rigorous exercise, dive into a program at a slightly lower intensity, then gradually increase that intensity over time. For example, Planet Fitness offers training sessions for small groups (free for all members) that are fun, full-body workouts led by certified trainers.
  3. Moms on the Go: For busy moms with active kids, sometimes it feels like you’re their personal chauffeur 24/7 – from dropping them off at school in the morning to picking them up from soccer practice at night. Don’t miss a minute of their day while still making time for yourself by getting in a quick circuit training session that hits all major body parts. To help you get in and get out, check out the dedicated space within every Planet Fitness that features a guided 30-Minute Express Circuit and includes a mixture of strength training and aerobic exercises. An added bonus is that many Planet Fitness locations are open 24/7 so you can go when your busy schedule allows.

Planet Fitness has revolutionized the fitness industry with extremely low prices and offers a variety of benefits, including a hassle-free environment called the Judgement Free Zone®, brand name cardio and strength equipment, fully equipped locker rooms, flat screen televisions, unlimited small group fitness instruction by a certified trainer through the pe @ pf® program, and much more.

Planet Fitness also provides members with an opportunity to connect and support each other with “Planet of Triumphs,” an online community that celebrates all accomplishments and inspirational stories of Planet Fitness members. Planet of Triumphs provides an online platform for members to recognize their triumphs (big or small), share their stories and encourage others, reinforcing the Company’s belief that ‘everyone belongs’.
