Planet Fitness Rockville To Relocate and Double in Size

Planet Fitness – one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers with more members than any other fitness brand – announces plans to relocate and expand its Rockville, Md. club.

In December, the Judgement Free fitness center will move from a 15,361-square-foot space at 1776 E Jefferson St., Rockville, MD 20852 to a 30,000-square-foot space in the Montrose Shopping Center at 5520 Randolph Rd., Rockville, MD 20852.

“We’re thrilled our Rockville club is moving to a new location that will double the size of the current location and include more fitness equipment, better parking and easy access to the Capital Beltway,” said C. Victor Brick, co-owner of PF Growth Partners (PFGP), a franchise division of Planet Fitness. “The new space will provide a bigger and better option for current members and the community of Rockville.”

Offering a hassle-free environment, the future Planet Fitness Rockville will feature new Matrix cardio machines, a new functional training area, new Matrix training cycles, and new rowers and Sci fit, as well as a 30-Minute Express Circuit, fully equipped locker rooms and numerous flat screen televisions.

An expanded PF Black Card(r) Spa Area will have a RelaxSpace Wellness Pod – Planet Fitness’ first in Maryland – where its Black Card(r) members can relax, reset and focus on their mental health for up to 15 minutes.  Members can select between a variety of videos, scents and even temperatures while learning more about diet, nutrition, breathing and the benefits of exercise.  Plus, the Wellness Pod will track heart rate and encourage members to use breathing and meditation exercises to reduce anxiety levels, disconnect and recharge with a unique, multi-sensory experience.

Additional PF Black Card(r) Spa Area amenities will include new tanning units including Hybrid Tanning (which is not offered in the current Rockville location), plus double the number of HydroMassage beds (four) and massage chairs (four Elite Massage Chairs instead of two basic chairs).

Registration will open online Nov. 16 at and in-person at the current Rockville location. As an introductory special through Nov. 30, members can join with no commitment for $1 down, then $10/month with the Classic membership. Or, they can select the $24.99/month PF Black Card® membership –which includes the ability to bring a guest every day at no additional charge, access to all 2,300+ Planet Fitness locations in all 50 states, and access to the Black Card® Spa area among other benefits.
