TIMONIUM, Md. (Jan. 27, 2023) – Planet Fitness – one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers with more members than any other fitness brand – announces that its Gaithersburg club (255 Muddy Branch Rd, Gaithersburg, MD 20878) recently underwent $1.7 million worth of renovations.
The 14,316-square-foot facility now features a new PF Black Card® Spa area with HydroMassage beds, massage chairs and tanning beds. Coming soon will be its latest amenity, the Recovery Lounge.
