Planet Fitness opens new club in Rockwall

23,000 square foot Judgement Free Zone® now open in Ridge Road Center

(ROCKWALL, TX – April 21, 2016) Planet Fitness is proud to announce the Grand Opening of its new Rockwall club, located at 1201 Ridge Road in Ridge Road Center.  The Rockwall facility includes over 23,000 square feet of new space and equipment, and is offering grand opening memberships for just $1 down and $10 a month with no commitment through Monday, May 16th.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, April 28. In honor of the grand opening, Planet Fitness will present an oversized $5,000 check to representatives from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Texas, whose mission is to ensure great futures for kids and teens. Clubs provide HOPE through unique activities and youth development professionals. Boys & Girls Clubs create great futures by discovering and honing kids’ passion and commissioning them to use that passion to excel in life.

Additionally, Planet Fitness has extended its judgement free philosophy outside of its gyms and into communities that need it most with its philanthropic initiative, “Judgement Free Generation™.” Together with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), the nation’s leading youth development organization, supporting millions of kids and teens during the critical out-of-school time, and STOMP Out Bullying, the leading anti-bullying organization in the U.S., Planet Fitness aims to empower a generation of teens to grow up contributing to a more judgement free planet – a place where everyone feels accepted and like they belong.

Planet Fitness prides itself on providing a high-quality experience at an exceptional value and being home of the Judgement Free Zone®, where members experience a hassle-free, non-intimidating environment. Each club also features the brand’s iconic “Lunk Alarm” – a purple and yellow siren on the wall used as a light-hearted, gentle reminder that grunting, dropping weights or judging others is not permitted.

The $2.3 million facility is open and staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and features an extensive selection of cardio equipment including treadmills, ellipticals, arc trainers, and stationary bikes all pointed at 70” televisions for member entertainment while working out.  Planet Fitness also offers a popular 30-minute PF Express circuit room, dedicated abs/stretching room, a full complement of user-friendly strength equipment and full locker rooms that include free day-use lockers, private changing rooms and tile showers.  “You get all this for only $10 a month.  The value is second to none,” said Trey Owen, majority partner of the club.

The club will offer the PF Black Card® membership, which is $19.99 a month, and includes additional amenities such as the ability to bring a guest every day at no additional charge, access to the more than 1,000+ clubs in the Planet Fitness chain, as well as use of massage chairs*, HydroMassage beds*, tanning*, Total Body Enhancement booths*, and 50 percent off select cooler drinks*.
