Planet Fitness to open an Eden location soon!
Planet Fitness, one of the largest fitness club franchises with over 1,700 clubs in the U.S. and abroad, will open an Eden, NC location by the end of 2019. It will be located at 220 W Kings Hwy in Kingsway Plaza between Dollar Tree and Kingsway 4 Cinema. The approximately 19,000 square foot facility will consume three currently vacant shopping center spaces. This will be an all-new Planet Fitness with state-of-the-art equipment, friendly staff, free fitness training, and a Black Card spa. They will offer The Black Card membership, an upgraded membership option, which includes access to nationwide Planet Fitness locations, access to tanning beds, hydro-massage lounges, tissue massage chairs and other perks. Planet Fitness is open 7 days per week and 24 hours Monday-Friday.
“We are very excited to bring Planet Fitness to Eden”, stated Andrew Watkins, Director of Operations for GNT Holdings, the franchisee operating the Eden location. “We are working diligently to open as early as we can, but sometime by the end of the year.”
Watkins emphasized that Planet Fitness is not just a gym. It is a judgment-free zone offering a comfortable, non-intimidating atmosphere where anyone can reach their fitness and health goals. Planet Fitness wants to reach out to people who may be uncomfortable and unsure of what to expect from a gym experience. That is why they offer free training in order to help them feel comfortable.
“We feel honored that we can provide an inexpensive facility that provides these amenities to the Eden community,” Watkins added.
In the near future, banners will appear on the front of the shopping center space Planet Fitness will occupy. More information about memberships and other consumer benefits will be coming soon. Those interested in Planet Fitness employment can visit www.planetfitness.com at the designated time. The company will also do a pre-sale promotion in which potential members can get special deals on membership rates before the gym opens.
