Gym announces opening date

Planet Fitness is scheduled to open its doors at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

ROCK SPRINGS — More than 1,000 residents have signed up to join Planet Fitness as of Friday, Planet Fitness Franchisee Dave Leon told the Rocket-Miner.

Doors will officially open at 10 a.m. Wednesday at 1429 Dewar Drive in Rock Springs.

Every 100 people, up to 2,000, to sign up will receive a special welcoming gym bag that includes a sweatshirt, hat, water bottle and T-shirt, he said.

When asked what his thoughts were on the upcoming opening, he said residents “will think it’s like Disneyland.”

The facility will have over 100 televisions, a 10-foot movie screen, over 110 pieces of cardiovascular equipment, “and a state-of-the-art facility that you can only find in L.A. or N.Y. is now in Rock Springs, WY,” Leon said.

The basic membership will have no contracts, “no commitment, and no cancellation fees,” he said.

The gym will be open 24 hours a day from Monday to Friday and 7 7 p.m. on weekends.

The company, which owns fitness centers around the world, opened its first location in Dover, Delaware, in 1992.
