On Dec. 3, Bravo-Fit celebrated the grand opening of its Sherwood, Oregon, location, the group’s fifth club.
Although the club held a soft opening on Nov. 1, Bravo-Fit decided on Dec. 3, which was a pizza Monday, to host the club’s grand opening. The grand opening celebration included a ribbon cutting ceremony and a check presentation to the local Boys & Girls Club which was comprised of the club’s pre-sale start up fees. “Bravo-Fit is here to be the Boys & Girls Club’s biggest fan,” said Tanner Halton, franchisee with Bravo-Fit.
“Walking into a new club that was full of members proved yet again that a clean Judgment Free Zone™ is a welcoming and much-needed environment in the community,” said Dani Van Drew, chief admin officer with Bravo-Fit.
In attendance were members of the local Sherwood community, members of Sherwood’s local Chamber of Commerce and City Council members. “The Sherwood Planet Fitness takes pride in its community and is beyond thankful of the open arms welcome that it has received from the local residents,” said Halton.
But the grand opening of the Sherwood location was not all Bravo-Fit had up its sleeve late last year. On Nov. 11 shortly following the Sherwood location’s soft opening, Bravo-Fit team members joined together to give back to the community by sponsoring the local Give N’ Gobble Turkey Trot.
Thousands of people gathered to participate in the race and donate food to the local food pantry for the holiday, and Planet Fitness was the only sponsor to attend the event. During the event, team members were decked out in all purple and handed out scarfs, candy and Planet Fitness swag. Seven team members even participated in the race.
“The team represented what PF stands for – dedication to community, enthusiasm, optimism and a dedication to spreading happiness and wellness – as they cheered and supported the other 2,000 participants participating in the race,” said Halton. “Bravo-Fit was thrilled to support its community.”
