The new Planet Fitness in Ashburn is holding a grand opening this Thursday, including a ceremonial ribbon cutting. The gym is located in the Ashbrook Marketplace shopping center at Russell Branch Parkway and Ashburn Village Boulevard.
The facility famous for its purple and yellow color scheme and humorous “anti-lunk” policy was originally scheduled to open back in March — right as the coronavirus pandemic started closing down businesses. Planet Fitness finely opened its doors in June as restrictions were eased, and now it’s time to celebrate with the official grand opening. The event takes place this Thursday, July 30, from 4 to 6 p.m.
The gym is operating with heightened safety measures including masks, sanitizing spray bottles for every customer to use, temperature checks for employees, frequent cleaning by staff and some equipment being marked off limits to promote “social fitnessing.”
