PLNTF Holdings, LLC Works With Local Chamber of Commerce to Create Informational Video
Recently, PLNTF Holdings, LLC worked with the Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce to create a video that was part of the “Please Stop Here” series, which the Chamber of Commerce has been putting together. The video shared a bit about Planet Fitness® as a whole and showcased their two locations in the Des Plaines area. The video emphasized the steps that the clubs have taken to ensure safety and cleanliness for gym members and team members alike.
The “Please Stop Here” video series shines a spotlight on local businesses in the Des Plains, Illinois area with the intent of letting residents know more about the businesses near them. The Chamber of Commerce promotes these informative videos on their website, through YouTube and on Facebook. The series also runs on the Des Plaines public access channel a few times a week.
The idea for creating a video about two Planet Fitness locations in the Des Plaines area came about naturally. “We have an excellent relationship with the Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce like many of the communities in which we have clubs,” said Chris Short, director of internal/external communications and community engagement for PLNTF Holdings.
“We’ve worked closely with them on several programs including the Veteran’s Back-to-Work Bootcamp where one of our trainers was providing free Zoom workouts to vets in the program. They brought us this opportunity given our work within the community and we thought it was a great way to promote our two clubs and our new safety measures.”
Short noted that stressing the Planet Fitness goal of providing a judgment free workout with outstanding fitness equipment was one focus of the video, but there was more to it than that. With the pandemic raging on, the group also wanted to help members feel safe and comfortable with coming in to exercise. “Safety for our members and staff is our top priority, and we felt the video was a great way to communicate all the steps we’ve taken to ensure that people can work out in an environment where they feel comfortable,” he said. The video goes over such features as touchless check-in, Social Fitnessing®, a crowd meter through the app and the daily health and temperature check for team members. The video also highlighted the “United We Move” campaign conducted through Facebook.
PLNTF Holdings is grateful for their relationship with the Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce, which has been mutually beneficial and rewarding.
