Planet Fitness’ top priority continues to be keeping its members and employees safe and is the first fitness brand to receive the WELL Health-Safety Rating for Facility Operations and Management by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). The rating recognizes Planet Fitness’ leadership in adopting the leading framework to ensure a safer and healthier environment for its employees and members across all of its facilities.
Studies show exercise is healthy for both the body and mind. Additionally, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports1 that even one vigorous to moderate workout can reduce one’s risk of depression and anxiety while also improving sleep.
Results from a national study2 recently commissioned by Planet Fitness show that close to three in five (56 percent) Americans say they have not made their mental wellness a priority in the past year, while feelings of isolation (64 percent) and loneliness (59 percent) have increased since the start of the pandemic3. The American Psychological Association similarly4 found that more than half of U.S. adults (53 percent) have been less physically active than they wanted to be since the pandemic started, with a majority (61 percent) experiencing undesired weight changes, averaging 28 to 41 pounds gained. The new club looks forward to providing a safe place for everyone to exercise and better both their physical and mental wellbeing.
