Cancel Planet Fitness the easy way
Planet Fitness is one of the most famous health clubs in the US. Its spacious areas, a wide range of facilities and equipment, and group classes often attract people to work out in these fitness clubs.
Planet Fitness entices people by offering lower enrolment and monthly fees for an extended membership period. Fitness club enthusiasts find these perks appealing and quickly grab the first offer they get. Once committed, fitness club members find it hard to end their membership even if they want to. Thus, Planet Fitness members get frustrated when they eventually realize that the club is just not for them. It gets even more exasperating if the member has to move to another place where there is no Planet Fitness.

Why would you cancel your gym membership? 3 Reasons for Canceling Planet Fitness
Fitness club members may find various reasons for canceling their membership subscription. Below are some of the reasons to cancel Planet Fitness.
Save money on Planet Fitness yearly fee
The Planet Fitness monthly club membership costs around $10 to $25, excluding startup and annual fees. Fitness club members often find themselves paying the yearly and monthly fees without actually going to the gym. So why not work-out at home instead of going to a public gym? You don’t need to buy the big equipment you see in Planet Fitness. A few sets of dumbbells, jump rope, and exercise mat will give you the same results for a much lower price.
Get a perfect pair of gym or running shoes. Instead of getting on the treadmill at Planet Fitness, why not try running around the block for a few minutes every day?
A good way to save some time is to set up a gym in your own home. That way, you don’t have to spend time commuting to the gym. If this happens, you do not have to travel from your home or office, going to the fitness club center. This gives you the pleasure of working out anytime in the comfort of your home. Plus, you can wear any comfortable work-out clothes at home without feeling self-conscious.
Save on gasoline
Not having to travel from your home or work going to Planet Fitness center means no gas consumption. Aside from saving money, not using the car avoids pollution caused by exhaust emissions and helps protect the environment.
Can I cancel a Planet Fitness free trial?
There is no free trial at Planet Fitness. Once you become a member, it will automatically bill you the annual and monthly fees. You can choose to pay the minimum start-up fee of $1 through the Black Membership Card.
Can I pause my Planet Fitness subscription instead of canceling it?
In case of an illness or an injury, Planet Fitness may let you freeze your membership. To request this service, contact the company’s customer service.
Can I get a refund when I cancel my Planet Fitness gym membership?
No, Planet Fitness doesn’t offer a refund if you cancel your membership early in the billing cycle.
