PF® franchisees don’t just serve their club members; they also serve their local communities. Many businesses can be so focused on generating revenue they forget about their customers and community, but not Planet Fitness®!

This fall, Houston Fitness Partners launched a Geared for Giving initiative. Each quarter, HFP team members are nominated to join the committee that selects a charitable organization from the Houston area to receive a generous donation of up to $10,000.

Taelynne Gallegos, a member of the committee, loved being a part of the Geared for Giving initiative. “Thank you for giving not only me but all of us the opportunity to be a part of this awesome experience! I look forward to being able to present the donation,” she said.

For the third quarter, Houston Fitness Partners selected Angel by Nature + Relief Gang. Since 2008, the organization has worked to improve life for people impacted by hardship and poverty, especially youth. Houston Fitness Partners chose this organization because it believed Angel by Nature + Relief Gang strongly aligned with Planet’s mission of giving back to the local community.

“We’re excited for what’s to come and the organizations we’ll be able to help in the future,” said Abby Belaire, manager of Marketing & Communications at Houston Fitness Partners.
