MIAMI VALLEY — Planet Fitness has announced it will no longer require masks while working out at its clubs, a reversal of a policy that was set to go into place tomorrow.
“We are instituting a universal, standard mask policy in all of our stores effective August 1, although after hearing member feedback, we will be making a slight adjustment to this policy,” the fitness club told News Center 7 in a statement.
“For the enhanced safety of our members, guests and team members, masks are now required except while actively working out, and in accordance with local restrictions, in all Planet Fitness locations worldwide,” the policy now reads.
Planet Fitness has Dayton area locations in Huber Heights, Centerville, Sugarcreek Twp., Riverside, Englewood, Middletown, Springfield and Piqua.
The club had been offering to freeze memberships after the mask policy announcement Monday, however some members that froze memberships received calls asking them if they wanted to reinstate Friday.
