, one of the largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers in the U.S. and home of the Judgement Free Zone®, has announced its newest location in Buena Park
. The club, which is located at 8381 La Palma Ave., will celebrate the opening of Orange County’s second Buena Park location on February 28 with help from local community representatives and an official ribbon cutting ceremony.
To celebrate the addition to the community, Planet Fitness invites residents to join in the grand opening celebration where they will enjoy special giveaways and have the opportunity to snap fun pictures in a photo booth. Additionally, music will be provided by local radio station KXOL-FM. New members will have the chance to join Planet Fitness for just $1 down and then $10 a month through March 13.
To help become better acquainted with the Buena Park community, the new Planet Fitness location hopes to show its commitment to extending its judgement free philosophy outside of its gyms and into communities that need it most. As part of Planet Fitness’ national philanthropic initiative, “The Judgement Free Generation
™”, Planet Fitness plans on donating $1,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park. Together with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), the nation’s leading youth development organization, supporting millions of kids and teens during the critical out-of-school time, Planet Fitness aims to empower our future generation to believe in and support a judgement free society – and create a place where everyone feels comfortable and accepted.
“Here at Planet Fitness, our goal is to support healthy lifestyles at any fitness level. We encourage the community to come out for the grand opening celebration to check out the new club and meet our friendly staff,” said Planet Fitness franchisee James Innocenti. "Buena Park is such a wonderful city and we are excited to bring the judgement free fitness experience to even more residents.”
The newest Orange County Planet Fitness will be owned and operated by York Capital, a franchise group that owns 12 additional Planet Fitness locations throughout Southern California. Innocenti, who also operates Planet Fitness locations in Hawaii, New York and Massachusetts, has been with the company for 14 years and plans to continue supporting the gym’s expansion.
The new gym in Buena Park will be open and staffed 24/7. The Buena Park facility will offer state of the art cardio machines with individual TVs and strength equipment, 30-Minute Express Circuit, fully equipped locker rooms with day lockers and showers, numerous flat screen televisions, HydroMassage beds*, massage chairs*, tanning beds, a Total Body Enhancement booth*, and more.
