Planet Fitness has taken down more walls renovating over 35 years, when Trump wants to put up ~ Very humble beginnings...
Not completely sure this Signature is Authentic nor genuine / as my training partners for 6 long years told me they were ...and I never asked Questions!... Bob was the "best" and alway showed up for each & every work-out. He was only 185 lbs and could bench 385 ibs ...That is the real dea! with me....
Can you tell Shawn is Irish~ The Green days at Planet Fitness
Long day selling Memberships for Mark, but still always time to train. Some days we could do over three hundred new members! Very long days Promoting Gyms.
Elaine was Amazing running our front desk Promoting ... for Planet Fitness, from town to town. Never a dull moment for us all~:)
Who does not remember this old ad.
Traveled many Cities in Canada Promoting Planet Fitness with Mark speaking to the lost youth then doing his" FEATS" of Strength, always impressive .... Mark has a heart of gold for the young and hurting out there.
Planet Fitness was "Graced" all those years to have Dean Mearns doing all our Fitness Programs... some days over thirty 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 band visited Planet Fitness / back in the day... OVER 300 COVER BANDS SINGED THE WALLS....@pLANET~ We painted over a few big names in what's now are cardio room...lol.
Planet Fitness mailed over "1,000,000" promotional items each year ... We created hundreds of different promotions tools used by our I.P.F.A PARTNERS... 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~ THIS FORM OF ADVERTIZING ALWAYS GAVE US Amazing RESULTS... TOday you can Hit a button on your computer... and do the same THING... Marketing sure has changed over the years! We still do use mails - outs on Special occasions...but 90% of everything WE DO today is done Online ~ It's a "GREAT" new generation of marketing FOR ANY & ALL business ~ You can reach out to any area, age group or City ... And no more printing bills!!!! Or carrying huge boxes each week into THE 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.
Can't forget Shelley Williams working for Planet Fitness Promo team on the road promoting our Planet Fitness memberships and I.P.F.A. She also helped drive in the people!
The idea for Planet Fitness / Planet Hollywood .
Mark Marshell... loved the idea of the name Planet Fitness... I didn't ~ lol
Gave away hundreds of free Trips through Planet Fitness...
If you have worked with Shawn .... you know he is intense and all in 100% every time & every day!
Notice the Planet Fitness sticker I put on the windshield... lol ~ It was a Beautiful car!
