New Planet Fitness Opens in Avondale

Arizona welcomes another Judgement Free Zone.

AVONDALE, Ariz. - June 25, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Planet Fitness, the innovative health club franchise known for its Judgement Free Zone® and affordable prices, announced a new facility located at 200 Avondale Boulevard. The 20,000+ sq. ft. club is now open and is offering special grand opening memberships for just $1 down and $10 a month.

"We are very excited to bring Planet Fitness to Avondale, and we are proud to be a part of this community," said Brandon Thomas, local co-owner of the new club. "We provide a non-intimidating and affordable atmosphere for our members for only $10 a month." The Avondale club will be the Thomas' 5th location, joining their Yuma, Prescott, Casa Grande and Apache Junction locations.

Planet Fitness prides itself on providing a high-quality experience at an exceptional value and being home of the Judgement Free Zone®, where members experience a hassle-free, non-intimidating environment. Each club also features the brand's iconic "Lunk Alarm" – a purple and yellow siren on the wall used as a light-hearted, gentle reminder that grunting, dropping weights or judging others is not permitted.

As a member appreciation gesture, Planet Fitness also provides free pizza on the first Monday of every month, and free bagels on the second Tuesday of every month while supplies last, as a reminder that it's okay to treat yourself every once in a while after a good workout.
