CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - The new kid in town is Planet Fitness. It opened last summer offering various cardio, free weights, strength training and personal trainers.
"And it's all $10 a month, no commitment," said William Asbell, General Manager of Plant Fitness.
The upgrade membership costs $20 a month. That plan lets you bring a guest for free every time you visit, gives you unlimited use of the tanning beds and lets you kick back in the message chairs.
"It allows people to change their lifestyle, become healthier and do it at a price they can afford," he said.
Planet Fitness creates a non intimidating, judgment free atmosphere that doesn't cater to the body builder type. The Lunk Alarm curbs that kind of behavior.
When you look around these lower cost health clubs, what you won't find are swimming pools, daycare centers and smoothie bars. Not having these items keeps their prices low.
"We don't have a lot of extras that people end up paying for that don't necessarily use. Our mantra is affordable fitness for the women of Richmond," said President of Victory Lady Fitness Wendy Campbell.
Sorry guys, this one's ladies only. Owners of Victory Lady Fitness have tried to keep the prices affordable since they opened in 1989. And 10,000 Richmond women can't be wrong. This club offers cardio and weights as well as group classes on every level.
"We can get you in for $49 down and $15.95 a month," said Campbell.
One added incentive; members are entered in multiple giveaways throughout the year.
"I do bribe my members," she said.
Planet Fitness is located on Robious Road in Chesterfield; Victory Lady Fitness has locations off Midlothian Turnpike and Broad Street.
