Last fall, Ohana Growth Partners brought the Judgment Free Zone® to the Gallery Place community with its opening of Gallery Place Planet Fitness® in Washington, D.C.
For the club’s grand opening, about 200 people came out to celebrate the new club. The grand opening event included many festivities, such as a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the D.C. Chamber of Commerce.
To get the blood pumping, everyone in attendance could take part in free workouts and a 30-Minute Express class. Those in attendance were also able to meet well-known members of the Washington Wizards, as well as former professional basketball players Harvey Grant and Michael Adams, the Wizards mascot G-Wiz and team members from WPGC 95.5.
Many fun giveaways and prizes were given out at the event, including a 65-inch smart TV, Amazon Echo Show, Apple Watch and Wizards game tickets and apparel. The giving didn’t stop there! Ohana Growth Partners also presented the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington with a $1,000 check.
“The grand opening celebration in Gallery Place was a huge success for our members, staff and the community,” said Victor Brick, co-owner of Ohana Growth Partners. “Washington Wizards legends Harvey Grant and Michael Adams were a big hit, and the crowd loved it when the mascot, G-Wiz, set off the Lunk Alarm.”
Planet Fitness Gallery Place offers 19,817 square feet of workout space. The club also features a wide array of fitness equipment from cardio machines to strength equipment and a 30-Minute Express Circuit.
