Richland will be home to the Tri-Cities’ third Planet Fitness gym this fall.
The new fitness center will be at 1711 George Washington
Way, Suite 399, in a storefront formerly occupied by Mid-Columbia Wine and
Spirits, next door to Office Depot.
The Washington Plaza development in north Richland is
anchored by Safeway.
Planet Fitness recently signed a lease for 14,503 square
feet with WRP Washington Plaza LLC.
Remodeling should begin at the end of May or in June, said
Jason Goffard of Kiemle Hagood, who handled the transaction.
The Richland location will offer state-of-the art cardio and
strength equipment, free fitness training and a Black Card Spa, which will
include hydromassage beds, massage chairs and tanning beds/booths for Planet
Fitness black card members.
The national chain offers two types of
memberships, including its basic, no-commitment membership for $10 a month, as
well as the expanded black card membership for about $22 a month which offers
extra amenities, including the ability to bring a guest for free and use any of
the more than 1,800 Planet Fitness gyms nationwide.
“We always strive for a non-intimidating, judgment free
atmosphere where our members can feel comfortable working out at their own
pace,” said Becky Zirlen, Planet Fitness spokeswoman, in an email.
Mid-Columbia Wine and Spirits closed its Richland store May
1, according to its Facebook page.
Its Kennewick store remains open at 731 N Columbia Center
Blvd., which just happens to be next door to Kennewick’s Planet Fitness, which
opened in 2017.
Pasco welcomed its first Planet Fitness at 5710 N. Road 68
