PF HV Management, Inc. Wins Best Exercise Facility Four Years in a Row

The Planet Fitness® in south Parkersburg, West Virginia, won the 2015 Parkersburg News and Sentinel Readers’ Choice award for Best Exercise Facility for the fourth year in a row! Yet again, the Mid-Ohio Valley location owned by PF HV Management was voted as the top place to work out at by the community members of Parkersburg. The Parkersburg location has won the award every year since opening in November 2011.

The Parkersburg location was also the first Planet Fitness in West Virginia and has since been joined by other clubs in Bridgeport, Barboursville, Cross Lanes and Morgantown. With the new locations opening, franchisees Bob Viani and Sharon Lomasney, decided to reinvest in the Parkersburg location based on what members wanted to see and ensure that all of the existing locations were updated to match the new ones.

“Being voted as the favorite workout facility four years running is truly an honor for PF HV Management. It is even more impressive, as our Mid-Ohio Valley club location has only been opened for four years! We can’t thank the people of Parkersburg enough for their support and are fiercely determined to continue providing the high level of service they have come to admire and expect,” said Lomasney.

The franchise is also a big advocate for the Planet of Triumphs and actively encourages engagement with its users on the social media platform as it is a generator of overall client satisfaction and retention. However, PF HV Management is also aiming to increase its community involvement in the Parkersburg area through various outreach efforts. Despite these efforts, it appears that the community of Parkersburg is already enamored with the club, four years running, with no sign of slowing down.
