Planet Fitness Announces New Location To Be Built In Ferguson, MO

Fast Growing National Health Club Franchise Expands In Ferguson With Substantial Capital Investment and New Jobs

FERGUSON, Mo., Feb. 24, 2015 // PRNewswire // -- Planet Fitness Midwest ("PFMW"), the local franchisee for the health club disruptor "Planet Fitness", is building 11 new clubs in the St. Louis area and today announces that development is underway for a new location in Ferguson, MO in the Ferguson North County Festival Mall (10803 West Florissant Avenue), anchored by Walmart and Sam's, a property owned and operated by Otis and Clark. With this spacious 30,000 square foot club investment, Planet Fitness begins its goal of helping to revitalize Ferguson. Projected completion date is summer 2015. This club will bring 50 new jobs during the multi-million dollar construction phase. Afterwards the club will look to employ approximately 15 new jobs from the local Ferguson labor pool to operate the club. "We're thrilled at the chance to be a part of this revitalization. We believe in the community and its people and look forward to being in business in Ferguson," said Managing Partner, John Clancy.

With Ferguson's new club, Planet Fitness continues its expansion throughout the Midwest, reinforcing itself as the dominant health club provider in St Louis, MO; Edwardsville, IL; Cincinnati, OH; and Florence and Lexington, KY. PFMW opened its first St. Louis location in April 2014, and has become the area's premier health club provider offering a low-cost / high-quality health club lifestyle through its Judgment Free Zone® at affordable $10 a month membership rates, disrupting the stale and intimidating traditional gym model with high monthly membership rates.
