TIFFIN, OH — A franchise of the national fitness chain Planet Fitness has signed a lease with Tiffin Mall owners. The 24-hour gym is expected to be located in the former Dollar General and Label Shopper spaces.
Mayor Montz provided an update to Tiffin City Council at their meeting in March as to when the business will be opening. Montz said they plan to open in mid-to-late 2019.
In a tweet earlier this week, Montz confirmed again the opening date for Planet Fitness:

This will be the eighth facility for franchise owner Mark Christie. He said he has been looking at Tiffin for a two to three years, waiting on the right space. “We are very excited to come to the Tiffin market and provide a low price, high value option for community members to get into fitness,” he said.
Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz added, “This is the fourth announcement for the Tiffin Mall site since it was purchased nearly two years ago and things are not slowing down. I am pleased to welcome Planet Fitness and look forward to continued development in our commercial corridor.”
Planet Fitness is open 24 hours a day, staffed at all time, and provides free personal fitness training, and a Judgement Free Zone, providing a comfortable, safe, and energetic environment where everyone feels accepted and respected at any fitness level. The spacious, 16,000 square foot facility will hold more than 70 brand new pieces of cardio and strength equipment, as well as a lobby, locker rooms and showers.
A standard Planet Fitness membership is $10, or members can choose the $21.99 PF Black Card plan, which comes with additional perks including tanning, red light therapy, hydro massage and massage chairs, use of any Planet Fitness facility, and guest passes.
