Planet Fitness to open at Inlet Square Mall

MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) - Inlet Square Mall will now be home to another Planet Fitness on the Grand Strand.

Choquette said the gym will be open 24/7 and fully staffed.

The new location will include PF 360, which is a bootcamp-style workout room.

Hydrotherapy will also be offered, as well as 6 tanning beds with built in A/C.

Gym locations span from Wilmington, North Carolina to Savannah, Georgia. The first Planet Fitness was constructed in Wilmington in 2006, Choquette said.

There are currently 870 planet fitness locations nationwide.
