Planet Fitness opens in Seabrook

Planet Fitness opened a new location this month next to Kohl’s in Seabrook.

SEABROOK — Planet Fitness opened a new club adjacent to Kohl’s in the Seabrook Commons plaza.

The 19th Planet Fitness location in New Hampshire is one of four the company planned to open adjacent to Kohl’s stores across the country this year, Planet Fitness said in a release.

“We’re excited to grow our footprint in our home state of New Hampshire and to provide more people access to judgement-free, affordable fitness in a high-quality environment,” said Chris Rondeau, CEO, Planet Fitness, in a statement. “This location is convenient for our members to be able to get in a good workout and also to get some of their shopping done at the same time.”

Kohl’s and Planet Fitness announced a partnership earlier this year when the retailer announced it would be leasing space to Planet Fitness at 10 locations in the country as part of a plan to reduce the size of its stores and lease out the extra space to other tenants.

The new Planet Fitness, at 325 Lafayette Road, is nearly 23,000 square feet and offers more than 100 cardio machines, strength training equipment, multi-purpose training equipment, a 30-Minute Express Circuit, locker rooms with day lockers and showers, flat screen televisions and HydroMassage loungers. The facility is open and staffed 24 hours a day.

Planet Fitness, founded in Dover in 1992, has more than 14.1 million members and 1,899 stores in 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Panama and Mexico. More than 95% of Planet Fitness stores are owned and operated by independent franchisees.

The company moved its headquarters from Newington to Hampton in 2017. Shares of Planet Fitness (NYSE: PLNT) closed Friday at 74.48.
