Planet Fitness was "Graced" all those years to have Dean Mearns doing all our Fitness Programs... some days over thirsty new members booked with him and he could make them all happy! Wow! ( Dean Mearns one of Planet Fitness Co- Founders )

We removed our racquetball court in 1987 and made room for a new "Free Weight Area" with 140 LBS Dumbbells....crazy   days!

True story... The minute I meet Mark Marshell I quit Bodybuilding ... I shook his hand and his arms were well over 22 inches around!  I was done!

We once housed the first of it's kind State of the art indoor Golf course ... 18 full holes of World renowned Pebble Beach, California! This area is now our cardio room. Some Fun times with being located in a Hotel... Major Big Name Bands from the 80's & 90's would stay here and play golf all day long before they played each night. Good thing back in those days we had a Liquor License! If only the walls could talk~ :) Trust me it was Crazy! Every top 80's banded graced Planet Fitness back in the day.

Planet Fitness would mail out through Canada Post over 1000, 000 promotional items each year ... with hundreds of different promotions here are just a few that rocked in the day! Things were very different back then and Canada post direct mail was by far the best way to reach thousands of people very fast~ It was a huge cost to use but always proved to work amazing well ~ Today you can just hit a button on your computer and do the same ... Marketing sure has changed over the years! We still do use mails outs on Special occasions...but 90% of everything today is done Online ~ It's a new generation of marketing & business ~ You can reach out to any area, age group or City ... And no more printing bills! Or carrying huge boxes each week into Canada post office... also saves a few trees along the way!

This was my personal favorite mail out promotion to do... Planet Fitness gave away thousands of free trips to money city~ Los Vegas, thanks to Sprite Travel USA.  Mailed this one out all over B.C and Alberta for years traveling with Planet Fitness and the Promo team.
