Planet Fitness opens at Mercer Mall


On Thursday, Planet Fitness officially opened at the Mercer Mall in Bluefield, West Virginia. People were lined up outside waiting to work out inside the 18,000 sq. ft. facility.

It houses dozens of cardio and weight machines, tanning beds, massage chairs and more. The gym is also open 24 hours during the week, and membership fees start at $10 a month. Affordable prices like that helped convince some to sign up.

 "The job structure and economics in West Virginia, it's really hard to get a good job that pays really well  whereas you can work at McDonald's and be able to afford to got Planet Fitness once a month you know. That's where it needs to be," said Kenneth Weidman, a Planet Fitness customer. 

 If you're interested in getting a membership, you can stop by the gym. It's located right next to JC Penney at the Mercer Mall or you can sign up online here.  You can also see a full video tour of Planet Fitness on our WVVA Facebook page here.
