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,” which is a purple and yellow siren on the wall used to gently remind people that grunting, dropping weights or judging others is not permitted.

“Whether you’ve never belonged to a gym before or you’re an existing gym member looking to try a new facility, we encourage you to come check out the Wareham club, meet our friendly staff, get a tour and see what the Judgement Free Zone is all about," said Planet Fitness franchisee and Core Management and Development Chief Marketing Officer Jonathan Epstein. “We’re confident that our encouraging and hassle-free environment will be a welcome addition to the community and we look forward to continuing our growth with more locations opening in Massachusetts in 2017.”

All memberships include a variety of other benefits, such as unlimited small group fitness instruction by a certified trainer through the pe @ pf ® program. In addition, as a member appreciation gesture, Planet Fitness provides free pizza on the first Monday of every month, and free bagels and coffee on the second Tuesday of every month while supplies last, as a reminder that it’s okay to treat yourself every once in a while.

The PF Black Card® membership, which is $19.99 a month, includes additional benefits such as the ability to bring a guest every day at no additional charge, access to all 1,200+ Planet Fitness locations, as well as use of the hydro-massage beds and massage chairs and salon grade tanning booths.

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 a platform for members to recognize their triumphs (big and small), share their stories and encourage others, reinforcing the Company’s belief that ‘everyone belongs’.

Additionally, Planet Fitness has extended its judgement free philosophy outside of its gyms and into communities that need it most with its national philanthropic initiative, “The 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.
