ST. CLOUD -- Whether you're new to working out or an experienced gym rat there's a new health club waiting for you to try.

Planet Fitness officially open's in St. Cloud Wednesday in the former Workout World location at 2540 West Division Street.

"We're just excited to be in St. Cloud, we can't wait to open the doors," says Manning.

Planet Fitness has around 1,200 clubs nation wide including seven in Minnesota.

Regional Director Andy Manning says their goal is to create a judgement free environment for all members.

"We want you to come in and create an atmosphere where you can do what you need to do and then move on with your day," says Manning.

Manning says they completely gutted the inside of the building and have been renovating the club since October.

The gym has over 100 pieces of cardio equipment, strength training machines, tanning, massage chairs, personal trainers and circuit classes.

"We like to put our make on our space. We want to make sure they same experience is repeated no matter what club you go to," says Manning.

Planet Fitness opens their doors at 9:00 a.m. and after that will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Workout World closed their doors back in December 2014.
