Planet Fitness History
Planet Fitness was founded back in the early 90s. A man named Michael Grondahl bought a financially struggling fitness center in 1992. Grondahl significantly reduced the prices for customers in order to compete against more popular fitness centers. His low-cost business model made the needs of occasional or new health club members the priority instead of marketing to more experienced gym users.
Today there are over 50 corporate-owned Planet Fitness gyms. The other branches are owned and operated independently. The franchise business model of the company is concentrated for the most part in the Northeast of the United States, but the business has also expanded into a nationwide brand. Planet Fitness has recently been added to the list of Inc. 500.
A few years ago, in 2011, the Grondahl brothers who co-founded Planet Fitness continued to be the leaders of the business together with a man named Chris Rondeau. Rondeau began working for the gym brand as the CFO (chief financial officer) and today he is the CEO. Michael Grondahl is currently serving as a board member while his brother Mark Grondahl is the new CFO.
