WEST SIDERS TURN OUT FOR GRAND OPENING OF CHICAGO’S FIRST PLANET FITNESS
Everyone who is someone was on hand to celebrate the Grand Opening of Chicago’s first Planet Fitness exercise club. Located at 4905 West North Avenue in the Harold Washington Shopping Plaza, the bright and spacious center is more of a spa than a gym. Founded in New Hampshire, Planet Fitness is now the largest chain of exercise centers in America. In addition to providing all of the latest and most popular workout machines and free weights, Planet Fitness also offers 30-minute workouts and professional assistance from personal trainers helping members set attainable goals and learn to safely and effectively use the equipment. This assistance is provided 24-hours a day with the basic membership and enhanced Black Card membership. Planet Fitness offers two types of membership: Basic at $10 per month and Black Card for $20 per month. Both memberships allow unlimited use of the center 24-hours a day for as long as members want to use the facilities. They pride themselves on being a “Judgment-free Zone”, catering to regular people wanting to look and feel good, not to body-builders or exercise extremists. Most people joining Planet Fitness are first-time gym members. With the $20 a month Black Card, members have access to all 5,000 Planet Fitness clubs nationwide. Black Card members also receive unlimited use of chair and hydro massage, half-price drinks, red-light therapy, plus one free guest per day. They are also entitled to free haircuts at the center Barber Shop. The Austin center already has 5,400 members. There are nine centers in the metropolitan area and seven in Cook County. For information, stop in at Planet Fitness anytime.
