Area residents will soon have another choice when it comes to keeping in shape as Planet Fitness, which will be located in the former P&C Foods location in Stateway Plaza, will open its doors in late April.
â€œIn there weâ€™ll have probably over 120 pieces of cardio equipment, also some strength equipment thrown in there as well, with probably two or three circuits of strength equipment,â€ Robert Morris, franchisee of the Watertown Planet Fitness said.
The 19-year-old fitness franchise, based in Dover, N.H., opened its four-hundredth store in the Albany area last week, company spokesman John Craig said Friday.
â€œThe key differentiation between us and most other gyms is two things: price and atmosphere,â€ Craig said.
Planet Fitness memberships will begin at $10 per month and the company focuses on its â€œJudgement Free Zone,â€ where Craig said members can feel comfortable exercising regardless of looks.
