LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Planet Fitness, one of the largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers with more members than any other fitness brand, today announced that starting Monday, Feb. 7 through Monday, Feb. 14, ALL Planet Fitness members can take advantage of the “Bring a Friend” perk, which is usually reserved for PF Black Card® members, in celebration of Valentine’s Day. The Black Card® perk usually gives members the ability to bring a guest every day to the club at no additional charge.
Working out with a buddy can hold you accountable, improve results, and make working out more fun.
February is also Heart Health Month. Studies suggest by making a concerted effort to strengthen your heart health, you can:
- tangibly improve your overall quality of life by reducing stress and anxiety;
- increase your energy levels;
- build on your mental health.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports nearly half of U.S. adults suffer from hypertension, or high blood-pressure, and only one out of four of those adults have their hypertension under control.
To maintain a healthy heart and live a long, happy life, you’re encouraged to:
- infuse your daily routine with more cardio to help keep hypertension at bay;
- be mindful of your daily nutrition and hydration;
- get quality sleep each night;
- reduce stress;
- infuse exercise into your daily routine.
Enhanced COVID-19 safety and sanitization protocols at Planet Fitness’ well-ventilated and spacious clubs include:
- Touchless check-in via the free Planet Fitness App
- A Crowd Meter on the Planet Fitness App that allows members to check club capacity in real-time before even leaving the house
- Increased sanitization every 20 minutes to continually clean and sanitize high-touch areas, with cleaning stations available for member use
- Mask and vaccination requirement policies in accordance with local guidelines
The PF Black Card®, which is its most popular membership, provides a vast array of additional benefits to members such as the ability to bring a guest every day to the club at no additional charge, access to all 2,200 Planet Fitness locations, as well as access to the Black Card ® Spa, a member favorite after a workout.
Planet Fitness offers extremely low prices and a variety of benefits, including a hassle-free environment, brand name cardio and strength equipment, fully equipped locker rooms, flat screen televisions and much more. The free Planet Fitness App, available to members and non-members alike, puts more than 1,000 exercises right in your pocket with routines for all levels and interests.
