NEWINGTON, N.H., Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As a company committed to eliminating judgement and intimidation while promoting kindness and acceptance, Planet Fitness is launching a special promotion to continue its fight against bullying - the #1 concern for parents today*.
From November 9 through November 16, Planet Fitness is inviting everyone to join for only a $10 enrollment fee for both the $10 and $19.99 monthly memberships, and the company and its franchisees will donate 100% of the enrollment fees to Boys & Girls Clubs of America and STOMP Out Bullying™ to benefit its philanthropic initiative, The Judgement Free Generation™. Each $10 donation will support The Judgement Free Generation's mission of combatting the judgement and bullying faced by teens through funding programming, training and resources. Planet Fitness has been a proud champion of encouraging people to be "judgement free," inviting members to come work out as they are, without fear of being criticized or judged. With more than 1,200 locations nationwide, each location's walls provide inspirational messages of encouragement such as "You Belong" and "No Critics." Planet Fitness launched The Judgement Free Generation™ in March 2016 with an initial $1.3M commitment to Boys & Girls Clubs of America and STOMP Out Bullying™ to fund pro-kindness and anti-bullying programs nationwide. Since the program's introduction, anti-bullying tools and resources created by STOMP Out Bullying™ have been made available to the more than 4,000 Boys & Girls Clubs across the country, and trainings have been held for Boys & Girls Clubs' staff to create positive, judgement free environments that will help kids thrive.
