Planet Fitness New Member Incentive & Fitness Tips for Mom

I received no product or compensation for this post.  This post is in partnership with PR firm.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Planet Fitness is offering a new promotion, going on until May 12th. Join the Judgement Free Zone® for Only $5 Down and Then $10 a Month.   This promotion is going on at more than 1,300 Planet Fitness locations in the United States and Canada.

Planet Fitness has revolutionized the fitness industry with extremely low prices and offers a variety of benefits, including a hassle-free environment called the Judgement Free Zone®, brand name cardio and strength equipment, fully equipped locker rooms, flat screen televisions, unlimited small group fitness instruction by a certified trainer through the pe @ pf® program, and much more.

In addition to the May membership offer, Brian Zehetner, Planet Fitness’ director of health & fitness, shares workout tips* tailored for women across various life stages in celebration of Mother’s Day (and beyond). Zehetner’s tips include:

1.    Moms-To-Be: Women who are expecting don’t need to shy away from exercising responsibly. Even if you haven’t worked out regularly, it’s okay to start and increase your activity level over time as long as it’s approved by your physician. Specifically, combining cardio and light strength training has many benefits. Even exercises involving the core abdominal muscles and squats – often considered no-no’s during pregnancy – are okay for both mom-to-be and baby. Just be sure to avoid lying on your back when working the stomach.

2.    Entering Motherhood: Don’t stress about sticking to a workout regimen at this stage. New moms can gently ease into exercise in the weeks following delivery by simply moving around, whether on a treadmill or in the great outdoors. Once cleared by a physician for more rigorous exercise, dive into a program at a slightly lower intensity, then gradually increase that intensity over time. For example, Planet Fitness offers training sessions for small groups (free for all members) that are fun, full-body workouts led by certified trainers.

3.    Moms on the Go: For busy moms with active kids, sometimes it feels like you’re their personal chauffeur 24/7 – from dropping them off at school in the morning to picking them up from soccer practice at night. Don’t miss a minute of their day while still making time for yourself by getting in a quick circuit training session that hits all major body parts. To help you get in and get out, check out the dedicated space within every Planet Fitness that features a guided 30-Minute Express Circuit and includes a mixture of strength training and aerobic exercises. An added bonus is that many Planet Fitness locations are open 24/7 so you can go when your busy schedule allows.

My husband has a membership to PF and really enjoys their facilities. It's close to his work, so he goes on this lunch break every day.
