“We’re thrilled to bring another Judgement Free fitness experience to South Ft.

Wayne clubs, meet our friendly staff, get a tour, and see what the Judgement Free Zone® is all about. We’re confident our encouraging and hassle-free environment will be a welcome addition to the community.”

Planet Fitness prides itself on providing a high-quality experience at an exceptional value and being home of the Judgement Free Zone®, where members experience a hassle-free, non-intimidating environment. Membership includes a variety of other benefits, including free small group fitness instruction by a certified trainer through the pe@pf® program. In addition, as a member appreciation gesture, Planet Fitness provides free pizza on the first Monday of every month, and free bagels on the second Tuesday of every month while supplies last, as a reminder that it’s okay to treat yourself.

Planet Fitness also provides members with an opportunity to connect and support each other with “Planet of Triumphs,” an online community that celebrates all accomplishments and inspirational stories of Planet Fitness members. The Planet of Triumphs online platform allows members to recognize their triumphs (big or small), share their stories, and encourage others, reinforcing the Company’s belief that “everyone belongs.” Check out real Planet Fitness member stories and accomplishments at

Additionally, Planet Fitness has extended its judgement free philosophy outside of its gyms and into communities that need it most with its national philanthropic initiative, “The Judgement Free Generation™.” Together with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), the nation’s leading youth development organization supporting millions of kids and teens during the critical out-of-school time, Planet Fitness aims to empower a generation of teens to grow up contributing to a more judgement free planet – a place where everyone feels accepted and like they belong.
