WORCESTER — Planet Fitness is opening the doors of its second Worcester location next month.
The 21,000-square-foot gym at 535 Lincoln St. in Lincoln Plaza will open January 2022.
It will be fully equipped, with 120 pieces of cardio equipment, 73 pieces of expansive strength and free weights equipment, stretching and abs workout areas, weights, a training area, and, of course, a “judgment free” zone.
The gym will also feature free Wi-Fi, in-console TVs on all cardio equipment, private locker rooms, changing areas, day lockers and individual showers.
On the non-fitness side, the gym will also have two salon-grade tanning beds and two red light therapy booths, and two HydroMassage loungers, beds and massage chairs.
“This marks the 54th location from our franchisee group and we are grateful for this opportunity to expand our footprint in Worcester specifically,” Brian Kablik, Planet Fitness franchisee, said in a release. “We opened our first Worcester club in 2012 and it makes perfect sense to provide another location to this growing and vibrant city, especially after a year that reinforced how important both physical and mental wellness is for all of us.”
Planet Fitness invites new members to sign up online or visit its presale office from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
A virtual tour of the facility is also featured on the Planet Fitness website.
Through Dec. 22, new members can join for $1 down and $10 a month, with the option to cancel anytime.
The offer will also be available at the Webster Square, Webster and Shrewsbury Planet Fitness locations to celebrate the Worcester area’s newest gym.
“Although we are the largest franchisee in the region, we are also very focused on each individual community where we have a club; we always aim to create a workout environment where everyone feels accepted and respected in our brand-new, state-of-the art fitness centers,” Kablik said.
When its doors open in January, the Lincoln Plaza gym will be open and staffed 24 hours on weekdays, and from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
