A new 23,000 square foot
gym opened in Delta Township
eight weeks ago, and according to manager Fred Mussehl, the business’ welcoming philosophy has been a key factor in their early success.
“Our motto and everything about us is that we’re a judgment free zone,” says Mussehl. “Everyone is welcome to come work out and not be intimidated.”
The gym, which is located near the Lansing Mall on Saginaw Highway, is equipped with 87 pieces of new cardio equipment and all machines are integrated with plasma televisions. Planet Fitness now employs 14 workers.
“We cater toward physical fitness than powerbuilding,” Mussehl says. “We’re also known for what we call our ‘absurdly low prices.’” He add that their low rates also come with training and group fitness instruction.
“That gives you something Lansing has never had before,” he says.
