Health club franchise Planet Fitness recently opened a new location in Bayamón Oeste, marking the third location in Puerto Rico. The location joins gyms in Carolina (Escorial) and San Juan (Ciudadela) that have been open since September 2011 and June 2012, respectively.
“As the fastest-growing franchisor and operator of full-size fitness clubs in the U.S., we are thrilled that our third location is open in Puerto Rico,” said Planet Fitness CEO, Chris Rondeau.
“We’re excited about the overwhelmingly positive response our brand has received in the market, and we look forward to continuing to exceed our members’ expectations in the U.S. and beyond,” he said.
Planet Fitness offers a membership of $10 a month, keeping prices low by offering amenities such as brand name equipment, unlimited fitness training, full size locker rooms, flat screen TVs and more, which cater to occasional or first-time gym users, rather than high end amenities such as pools and juice bars that typically drive up membership fees.
“Puerto Rico has embraced Planet Fitness with open arms,” said Richard Sciacca, Puerto Rico Planet Fitness franchise owner. “With this new location in Bayamon Oeste, we’re able to offer even more communities an affordable, high quality, judgement free fitness experience.”
