Planet Fitness prides itself on offering extremely affordable memberships and a workout experience in a hassle-free, non-intimidating environment. Each club also features the brand’s iconic “lunk alarm” – a purple and yellow siren on the wall used to gently remind people that grunting, dropping weights or judging others is not permitted.

The new Coon Rapids club is in the former Bed Bath & Beyond building, which was renovated and transformed into a 25,000 square foot facility.

Both clubs will offer new cardio machines, new fully equipped locker rooms with day lockers and showers, massage chairs, full size flat screen televisions, a 30-minute express circuit and 12 minute ab-circuit, Hydro-massage beds, tanning booths and beds and Total Body Enhancement booths. These clubs will also be open and staffed 24 hours, seven days a week.

Membership includes a variety of other benefits, including unlimited small group fitness instruction by a certified trainer.

“We look forward to providing everyone in Coon Rapids and Burnsville with a high quality, judgement free fitness experience at an extremely affordable cost,” said Planet Fitness franchisee Dan O’Shaughnessy.
