ST. CLOUD -- St. Cloud resident will soon have another health club to choose from.

Planet Fitness plans to open in the former Workout World facility at 2540 West Division Street.

Regional Manager Rick Petrone says they've been looking to add a gym in the area for some time and are excited to have it become reality.

"We've been looking for a while to get into the St. Cloud market and we finally had an opportunity and we look forward to everyone coming to check it out," says Petrone.

Planet Fitness is known for their low prices and creating an environment where you can do your own thing without being judged.

The gym will include a cardio theater, free weights, tanning, personal training and will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"People have different work schedules, some people like to get up early or workout late. We're trying to make it convenient for people to work out," says Petrone.

Planet Fitness has around 1,200 clubs nation wide including seven in Minnesota, mostly in the Twin Cities area.

Petrone says the new club will created about 20 new jobs in the area. They are currently underway renovating the inside and hope to officially be open by mid December.

Workout World closed their doors back in December 2014.
