Planet Fitness has announced it will be opening its first health club in Shawnee inside of the Kickapoo Plaza at 600 West Independence Street. Representatives anticipate the location will open at the end of 2017.

The new club will be moving into the old Hancock Fabrics space, filling a 15,000 square foot storefront located near the center of the community.

“Our lease is officially signed, and we have entered into the initial planning stages for construction of this new club. We’re very excited to bring Planet Fitness to the Shawnee area, and also make this our tenth location in central Oklahoma,” said Trey Owen, CEO of United PF Partners, a leading Planet Fitness franchise group that currently operates 67 locations across nine states.

Planet Fitness has more than 1,350 locations in total. More details about the Shawnee club’s amenities and initial promotions will be released as the opening date approaches.
