Free access to 50+ clubs in response to communities affected by factory strikes
DETROIT – In response to factory strikes creating stress and anxiety for employees and those affected, the Detroit-area Planet Fitness locations are opening their doors to any factory employee from any industry wanting to exercise beginning midnight Friday, September 29th through close of business on Sunday, October 1st. Visitors will have no obligation to join to take advantage of this opportunity.
“The support from our local communities is the reason we succeed,” said Bryan Rief, Planet Fitness franchisee and CEO of EPIC Fitness Group. “With all that is going on, especially around Detroit, this is an opportunity for us to give back during these challenging times. Exercise, including walking, jogging, and cycling have been proven to reduce anxiety, depression, and negative moods. We hope people will take advantage and stop by Planet Fitness for a little stress relief this weekend.”
Together, EPIC Fitness Group and Impact Fitness, Planet Fitness franchise divisions, own and operate over 50 Detroit area Planet Fitness locations. Any factory employee interested in taking advantage of a free workout can simply show up at Planet Fitness with both a photo I.D. and employee I.D. Clubs in neighboring Sarnia, Chatham and Windsor, Ontario are also offering free access.
All Planet Fitness locations feature a huge selection of cardio and strength equipment pieces, 30-Minute Circuit training areas and functional training as well as amenities such as full-service locker rooms, tanning, massage chairs and HydroMassage beds.
