I read that a month ago and haven't seen or heard anything about it. Ledgewood didn't have a clue.

I just called corporate headquarters and they said it is still in the works and being built. Also to check the website every few days.

Has anyone seen an activity by the movie theater? That's where the address is.

Great that is going to make getting out of the parking lot there to go on 57 toward route 46 even worse than it is now

As much as I'd like a Planet Fitness in town I really hope that's not where it goes. Parking and navigating the lots there is already terrible.


If it were a Trader Joe's no one would be complaining about anything!

Fill the empty buildings and extra 2 minutes sitting in a park lot or at a light won’t kill you. Be patient


ok and thank you for the life's lesson on patience you totally changed my life

Hey Jim so glad I could help!


There are no signs of activity inside the building and the for rent signs are still on the windows as of today.

Bye bye Shoprite, can't stand that parking lot and this will make it worse. Time to find another store.


If you want to go to a good gym in Hackettstown try Real Time Fitness!


True, this plaza has the worst ingress/egress, needs to be completely revamped.


Thats is a very small storefront for planet fitness

I love Real-Time Fitness the former achieve 24 Fitness.

I just wish I had time to get there. I like the fact that Mike went out and got brand new treadmills. There is limited space but what are you going to do. You have everything you need.

If they at least put a rear entrance to some of those stores I think that might alleviate some of the traffic problems both car and foot


Anyone hear anything new about when it would open?

Good old "Pizza Planet" or "Pizza Fitness" as some of the fitness fails channels on Youtube often call them. Lots of good "footage" from there. No judgements, unless you are serious about Fitness, in many of their opinions, that is. I remember seeing one clip from the Ledgewood location, OMG, funny!

I believe Planet Fitness has canceled plans to open a location in Hackettstown. This location has been removed from the Planet Fitness website and their is no new updates about this location. I guess Covid-19 killed plans for this location.

They should do quite well at that location.


"The new gym is slated to open in late December at 1965 Rte. 57, #13 in the Mansfield Plaza, a representative told Daily Voice."

Does anyone know how the presale works? Are they still charging for the time before its even open or does it only start charging upon open?

The schedule that MAJA2 posted are the hours of the pre-open office which is located adjacent to Shoprite (the old SUBWAY) location.

Anyone know what is going on with Planet Fitness opening?


Re: Planet Fitness coming to Hackettstown?

FB- PF has a temporary space right next to Shoprite in the former Subway space. Look for the blow up "raise the roof guy". LOL. Stop in they have all the info. You may find a sign on deal as well.


I signed up online when they had promotion in November. Luckily I haven't been charged yet. Looking forward to it opening.

Is there any possible date of opening? I signed up online to but don't want to wait until April or so to be able to go

I find it difficult to believe that this enterprise can maintain the level of cleanliness at this price that Riverside Health and Fitness does right across the street.
Very important ( at least, to me).

Those treadmills look awfully close together, maybe 3-4 feet, person-to person. isn't there a 6-foot distance required to work out in a Gym also these Covid Days?

Are there exercise classes also in Planet Fitness, curious, or a steam sauna for the $10 per month?

I wouldn't even think of joining any gym until AFTER the Pandemic!!

Hackresident…the one in Ledgewood only allows you to go on every other one… so you are six feet apart. I’m sure the one in Hackettstown will do the same once it’s open and the six feet eile is still in effect

OR- If you don't want to catch a cold or the flu don't go. No need to shutter a business.


Exactly Greg. If you live in that much fear Philliesman, then stay at home, don’t go to work, order everything online to be delivered, let it sit outside for a few days (you know “just in case”) and let the rest of the world keep spinning

This ultra deadly virus is still around because of people like you

Philliesman Philliesman
Jan '22

The “ultra deadly” virus will always be around. As will many others. If you want to attempt to hide from it that’s fine. But others will choose to live their life. Regardless it won’t be going away, learn to live with yet another risk amongst the many others in daily life, or live as a hermit, held up in your hollow, in fear.

Makomiller1984 Makomiller1984

Maybe I am wrong here but doesn't this virus effect unhealthy people more than healthy people??? Shouldn't we be encouraging people to work out and get healthier? It always surprises me when people talk about how "deadly" THIS virus is, and when you think about it, 10 years ago older people and unhealthy people died because of the many strands of the flu. But we didn't shut everyone in the world down for that back then. Also, everyone had their own choice to get the flu shot or not. IMO, this is no different.

Last I heard, the opening date was moved to January 15th. It has changed a few times. I wouldn't be surprised if it changes again. I joined during the promotion. I'll likely wait a month or two before I go now that the variant is here. I'd be more upset if the monthly cost were more than $10, but I can eat the cost for a bit. No need to slam them simply because you prefer another gym in the area. Different gyms have different audiences. The people who can afford Riverside might be seeking something different from the people joining PF. For instance, all I need is a selection of cardio machines because I don't have room for one in my home. I don't need or want classes, saunas, or anything else.
