Health club franchise system Planet Fitness has announced it will open a new Winnipeg location in January 2019.
The club, which will be the second in the city, will be open and staffed 24-7. In addition to new cardio machines and fully equipped locker rooms, the 2167-m2 (23,322-sf) facility will offer members a range of amenities, including:
- massage chairs;
- 32 full-size flat screen TVs;
- four water massage beds;
- four tanning beds (both stand-up and lay-down); and
- two red light therapy booths.
“Planet Fitness was founded with the mission to provide a high-quality fitness experience that’s comfortable and nonintimidating for the first-time gym member,” said franchisee Mike Dobrynio. “We are looking forward to extending our high quality, affordable, and judgement-free fitness offering more widely in the Winnipeg community.”
Established in New Hampshire in 1992, Planet Fitness entered the Canadian market in 2014. Today there are more than 1600 franchises worldwide.
