Greenlawn could soon be the newest home of Planet Fitness’ “judgment free zone.”

The New Hampshire-based fitness center company announced earlier this month that it would be opening its newest gym at 777 Pulaski Road in Greenlawn.

The gym is set to occupy a 17,000-square-foot facility and house “more than 175 pieces of state of the art cardio and strength equipment,” according to a statement released last week. The gym will also contain a spa available to Black Card members.

“We’re excited to bring a high-quality, affordable fitness facility to Greenlawn,” Rich Childs, senior director corporate club operations, said. “We welcome casual and first time gym goers who may have never belonged to a gym before… we know that Planet Fitness will be a desired fitness option for the Greenlawn community.”

Planet Fitness is currently offering pre-sale membership sales until Tuesday that include a classic Planet Fitness membership for $10 a month.

Planet Fitness, which was founded in 1992, has more than 1,565 locations in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Canada, the Dominican Republic and Panama. Around 95 percent of the company’s gyms are independently owned and operated.

The gym is anticipated to hold its grand opening sometime in September, and will be open 24 hours a day, Monday-Friday, and 7 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday-Sunday.
