As part of World Mental Health Day on Sunday, more than 2,100 Planet Fitness locations worldwide will provide workouts and their patented HydroMassages at no cost, even for nonmembers.
“The pandemic has taken a major mental and physical toll on everyone, and focusing on improving our overall health and wellness should be a priority,” CEO of Planet Fitness Chris Rondeau said in a statement. “People often primarily think about the physical benefits of exercise like weight loss and muscle toning, yet underestimate the important mental health benefits such as decreased stress, increased self-confidence and anxiety relief; on World Mental Health Day this Sunday, we’re excited to encourage everyone to work out, relax and feel good at Planet Fitness.”
Planet Fitness said every gym located in Massachusetts is participating in the event Sunday.
Nonmembers can sign up at PlanetFitness.com/MentalHealthAwareness to take advantage of the limited time offer.
Amid the pandemic, Planet Fitness has implemented sanitizing high-touch areas every 20 minutes along with cleaning stations. Members can also utilize the Planet Fitness app, which features a “Crowd Meter” that shows members a club’s capacity in real-time.
Planet Fitness’ HydroMassage is normally an exclusive perk for its Black Card members.
The HydroMassage uses jets that move up and down the body with wave-like streams of heated water. Users can select the exact points where they want to concentrate the massage, the desired massage pressure and the speed of the movement.
