Planet Fitness Makes Plans To Orbit The Pittsburgh Area

“Planet Fitness, a health club franchise that seeks to pump volume business out of value-priced memberships, is searching the Pittsburgh area for locations. ‘They have been very successful so far,’ said Pat Gallagher, a suburban Philadelphia-based commercial broker representing the franchisee who owns the territory for southwestern Pennsylvania in his search here. ‘Not one has ever failed or gone dark.’ With 300 Planet Fitness locations operating nationwide, Gallagher said his client, Dan Horan, is working to open six to eight Planet Fitness clubs throughout the Pittsburgh area in the next year and a half. The company seeks out locations of 15,000 to 24,000 square feet, often taking second-generation space formerly occupied by grocery stores. The clubs offer a variety of cardio, weight-training and tanning booths.”
