The former Indigo bookstore space at the Taylor’s Crossing retail complex at 1025 Marine Drive in North Vancouver has been converted into a Planet Fitness location.
Last summer, Indigo shuttered its 21,000-sq-ft location in North Vancouver after it decided not to renew its lease.
And now, the space has become the latest expansion location for the American fitness gym chain giant. An exact opening date will be announced soon.
The new Planet Fitness location — operating 24/7 — features brand new cardio machines, fully-equipped locker rooms with day lockers and showers, numerous full-size flat screen televisions, a 30-minute express circuit, two HydroMassage beds, two hydro lounges, two stand-up tanning beds, two lay down tanning beds, and one total body enhancement booth.
Each of the chain’s locations features a so-called ‘Lunk Alarm’ — a purple and yellow siren on the wall that reminds people that grunting, dropping weights or judging others is not permitted.
At this location, free pizza will also be offered to members on the first Monday of every month, and free bagels on the second Tuesday of every month.
Planet Fitness has over 1,600 locations in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Panama, and Mexico. The North Vancouver location is the chain’s fourth location within the Lower Mainland, with other locations at Abbotsford and Surrey.
