Planet Fitness is ready to welcome you back! We have missed all of you and are ready to help you flatten the curve before Summer. Gauteng Clubs will re-open tomorrow 19 / 8, KZN and CPT on Thursday the 20 / 8.  

Whilst we have all been in Lockdown, we’ve been very busy doing everything we can to make sure that you feel safe, when you return to your favourite Planet Fitness Club.

And we’re ready to get you back to training and getting you fit again, safely, and to meet up with your favourite instructors and the people you’ve missed. And even though things may have changed a bit since you last visited the club, we’ll be there, ready to welcome you back, whenever the time is right for you.

We’ve implemented many changes at every step of your visit and workout, some of which are explained below and in our new Welcome Back video. 


All key surfaces are disinfected after every USE and we disinfect our gyms from front to back, top to bottom, every Night and an extra deep clean, once a week.

Planet Fitness staff are regularly tested for COVID-19 and temperatures are tested every day during shift change.

We have staff on hand to disinfect after use and we have several new sanitising stations throughout the club for you to use, whenever you like.  You will notice that we’ve added a bottle of sanitizer to every piece of equipment together with paper towel freely available throughout the club, at convenient locations, that will allow you to sanitize the equipment yourself, before you use it.


The use of Face Masks in all of our Clubs will be MANDATORY – We ask that you please wear a face mask at all times, on arrival and throughout your workout.


You’ll notice markings throughout the Club, on the floor and on our equipment which will help you to stick to our social distancing requirements.  Some equipment has been disabled or moved out of the club to assist with social distancing.  We encourage you to make use of our self-service check-in on arrival, at the Club, once you have passed through the Pre-Access screening Station.   Keep contact to a minimum and social distancing to a maximum. You will also notice that we have disabled some of the lockers and other areas in our change rooms to ensure that you have the required amount of space around you. Unfortunately, for now, showers will also be closed.


On arrival at the Club, you will need to present yourself at the Pre-Access Station first, there you will be screened by our Nurse or COVID-19 Compliance officer. At the Pre-Access Station you will need to give us your details, have your temperature taken and we will make sure that you are wearing a mask, and ensure that you are not displaying any COVID-19 Symptoms and are well enough to train.  Once you have the green light to enter, you will proceed to tag yourself in at the Reception desk and enjoy all our facilities safely.

We have prepared an FAQ page for you to have some of your questions answered

We can’t wait to welcome you back, safely, into our Clubs soon.
