Planet Fitness Manager Nicole Lesansee held large scissors and snipped both a red Alamogordo Chamber of Commerce and a purple Planet Fitness ribbon at the gym’s grand opening Wednesday evening.
The 15,000 square foot facility has been open for about a week, Lesanssee said.
“On behalf of Planet Fitness, we wanted to say, ‘thank you very, very much.’ We’re very excited to be here in Alamogordo. We worked really hard to get this place open for you guys,” Planet Fitness Vice President of Operations for New Mexico and Arizona Chris Skipp said.
Skipp thanks the Alamogordo Chamber of Commerce for their help in getting Planet Fitness’ Alamogordo operations working.
“We really, really appreciate all your support, all your help, your conference rooms, everything you guys did to help us out through this transition,” Skipp said. “We hope you guys enjoy the facility.”
The gym offers treadmills and other cardiovascular equipment, strength training equipment, abdominal equipment, a 30-minute workout circuit area, fitness training, the Black Card Spa and more.
“We’re proud we’re finally open ad that we are able to offer such a beautiful location,” Planet Fitness Senior Field Marketing Manager Kara Marszal said.
Earlier in the day, the Boys and Girls Club of Otero County visited the facility where a check for $1,000 was presented to the Boys and Girls Club, Skipp said.
“We have a national sponsorship with the Boys and Girls Club. We do a lot of work with them and we’ve been working with them since we’ve been here and look forward to doing future things with (them),” Skipp said.
Planet Fitness is located at the 1800 block of 10th Street and offers memberships for as low as $10 per month for the classic membership and $21.99 per month for the PF Black Card membership. Both have a $39 annual fee.
The gym is open 24 hours Monday through Friday and is open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
