Planet Fitness Rapidly Expanding with New Union Square Location

NEW YORK - April 10, 2014 // PRNewswire // - PFNY, LLC, the largest franchisee of Planet Fitness, the New Hampshire based Franchisor who pioneered the high-value/ low cost fitness experience, will open its Union Square location in September, 2014.

"PFNY has revolutionized the way New Yorkers exercise and we're extremely excited to bring that experience to the heart of Manhattan," says Jeff Innocenti, CEO of the PFNY franchise. "We're fortunate that both public and privately-owned landlords have quickly realized the value that Planet Fitness brings to a location. We purposefully design our gyms so that they can peacefully co-exist with residents and office workers while still offering the highest quality fitness experience to our members."

Located at 22 East 14th Street between University and 5th Avenue, Planet Fitness will become the first option for an affordable gym membership in the Union Square area. "Union Square constantly attracts a wide range of residents, workers and students. Because PFNY prides itself on being able to cater to a diverse membership of people who want to work out in a clean and comfortable environment without breaking their budget, we're excited to now be able to offer this experience to such a historic Manhattan neighborhood," continued CEO, Jeff Innocenti.
