Testimonials

CJ Bouchard
When you look at our clubs today, there are clubs that are 30 or 40,000 square feet that are Planet Fitnesses, and that’s grown exponentially from that 12 to 15,000 square foot size that we started off with. We’re definitely going to be able to evolve but keep that brand.
Gerald Kennedy
My mom … would not have walked into a Gold’s Gym that I owned before. She would have walked into one of these. This is for everybody. Everybody and anybody can belong.
Dave Leon
We systematically, fundamentally, single-handedly changed the fitness industry. We’re so innovative and we’re so true to our model, and passionate … (the competitors) will never catch us.
Frank Kindler
I still remember way back when we were speaking to (the owners) and they were saying, ‘with Planet Fitness we’re giving you steak but we’re charging you the hamburger price’ – and I think we’ve taken that a whole step further. I think it’s more like filet now.
Chris Rondeau
We created a model here that caters to first-time gym users. We’re getting them in our doors and getting them healthy. This was almost a movement more than anything, where people have a common belief – the franchisees, the members, corporate – of fitness for everyone.
