Monroeville will be getting a Planet Fitness.

According to a building permit filed with Monroeville in August, the fitness center is slated to move into vacant space at 3813 William Penn Highway, next to Value City.

The permit includes plans to construct a new partial exterior wall with decorative gear, remove non-bearing walls inside and leveling floors for around $850,000.

The permit, which does not need to be approved by the planning commission or council, does not include a timeline for completion.

Jared Fletcher, franchisee spokesman, said he expects the Monroeville location to be open by Jan. 1. He said sites in McKeesport and Crafton are also expected to open this year.

There are a little more than 100 Planet Fitness locations spread throughout Pennsylvania, according to Planet Fitness’ website.

As of June 2019, there are over 1,800 sites located in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, Canada and Dominican Republic, Panama and Mexico.

Memberships start at $10 per month.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
