About Planet Fitness:


Planet Fitness is the fastest-growing franchisor and operator of full-size clubs in the United States, and has revolutionized the industry. The company currently has more than 280 clubs in 31 states, and a membership base exceeding 1.3 million, and an additional 400-plus clubs in development. The Planet Fitness business model began to take shape in 1992, when company CEO Michael Grondahl acquired a gym in Dover, New Hampshire. Membership sales took off, and Michael’s brother, Marc Grondahl, soon joined the business, followed by Chris Rondeau in early 1993. By 2003, the company had opened five clubs in New Hampshire and laid the groundwork for a full-fledged franchising operation. Planet Fitness was ranked #732 in last year’s Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America. In the report, Planet Fitness also ranked #1 among U.S. health club companies. In addition, in July 2008, Club Business International (CBI) magazine, the world’s leading magazine for health and fitness industry, recognized Planet Fitness for having the fifth-largest club membership base in the world.
