Gym-goers in Fairfield County now have a new Planet Fitness location to visit. 

It's located in Fairfield at 740 Villa Ave. and celebrated its grand opening on Thursday, Nov. 17 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, according to officials from the company. 

The gym offers state-of-the-art cardio machines, strength equipment, locker rooms with showers, massage chairs, and a section for 30-minute workouts, Planet Fitness officials said. 

"We’re thrilled to offer this new location as an affordable resource to help Fairfield-area residents achieve their physical and mental health goals," Vice President of Connecticut Operations Mike Shapiro said. 

As part of the opening celebrations, the gym, owned by ECP-PF Holdings Group Inc., donated $500 to the local Wakeman Boys & Girls Club as well as $500 to Fairfield Youth Football, Cheer & Flag, according to officials.

The location is open the following hours: 

  • 24 hours a day Monday through Thursday;
  • 12 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday; 
  • 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. 

"I want to welcome Planet Fitness to their new location, we are so happy to have them in our community. It is great to have a space where people can pursue both their physical and mental well-being, particularly as we are all still recovering from the stress of the pandemic," said State Representative Jennifer Leeper of the gym's opening.
