Logansport-Cass County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Bill Cuppy informed the Logansport Redevelopment Commission on Wednesday that Planet Fitness will have a soft opening on March 1, followed by a grand opening on March 30. The facility is housed in approximately 15,000 square feet of space where Sears used to be located on East Market Road. Lehman Daman Construction of Columbus, Ohio, built the complex.
The facility will house cardio machines, tanning beds, massage chairs, and hydro massage beds. Members also will have access to free fitness training. Membership purchases may be made online at PlanetFitness.com, Alex Baker, co-owner, said in a previous interview.
Members will have access to the facility from 5 a.m. Monday through 9 p.m. Friday, without any interruptions, and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Age limits include the following: 13-, 14-, and 15-year-olds may be members with parent or guardian consent, 16-year-olds do not need consent, and parents or guardians who have a membership may bring guests ages 13 and older.
Logansport resident, Jennifer Shafer, will serve as the manager, with 12 to 15 employees hired.
