San Jose, CA – Planet Fitness, one of the largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers in the U.S. and home of the Judgement Free Zone®, has announced the newest Planet Fitness location in San Jose. The club, which is located 3251 S White Rd., will celebrate its grand opening on February 26 with the help of local representatives in an official ribbon cutting ceremony.

We encourage visitors to experience our newest facility, wonderful staff, and great amenities for themselves first hand,” said Planet Fitness franchisee Karan Khanna. “We look forward to extending the judgement free fitness experience to even more local residents.”
The new San Jose Planet Fitness will be owned by Saber Fitness Group, a California-based franchise that operates several locations throughout Northern California. CEO Karan Khanna and his team look to assist in Planet Fitness’ expansion in the region.
