What is Guest Pass for Planet Fitness?
The Guest Pass is a privilege that’s given to a Black Card Member at Planet Fitness. You can bring any person with you during your visit – limited to one (1) person. This is a great way to introduce someone to Planet Fitness without having to commit to a membership or pay up a day fee.
Oftentimes, many of our friends are hesitant to try a gym because membership is a commitment that they might end up abandoning once they get tired of it. Therefore, having a guest pass to experience the amenities in the facility will help them decide whether or not to go for a Planet Fitness membership.
If someone wants to try out PF, they can become your guest if you are a Black Card Member. All you need to do is to invite them using the PF mobile app, have them register their info, and let them scan the key tag upon entry.
How Much is a Guest Pass at Planet Fitness?
A guest pass is free for Black Card Members – you can bring anyone without having to pay an extra day fee or membership fee for them. You can also bring any person to the facility with each visit – and you can do this as long as you like.
However, you might also want to check in your local PF club because certain branches offer trials for a guest pass. For instance, some offer $5 for a week-long guest pass, which is good news for those who don’t have or know someone who is a Black Card Member but wants to try out the gym.
How Does Planet Fitness Guest Pass Work?
The guest is invited by the Black Card Member through the mobile app so that they can obtain a key tag to scan at the entrance. Keep in mind, however, that the guest cannot go into Planet Fitness alone – they must be accompanied by the Black Card Member.
Moreover, those with a Guest Pass are only limited to workout equipment and do not share the same Black Card Member privileges (e.g. use of hydro-massage chairs, tanning beds, and the like).
How to Use Guest Pass at Planet Fitness
If you’ve been invited to Planet Fitness as a guest by a Black Card member, here’s what you need to do:
1. Head to their website and register with your e-mail address.
2. Read and review the instructions, which include a waiver that’s required when you visit Planet Fitness alongside your Black Card member. All you need to do is to sign the waiver.
3. For the Black Card Member, you need to invite the person first. Both the Black Card Member and the Guest should download the Planet Fitness app (free), log in, and look for your check-in code on your account information.
4. When you head to the PF club, simply open the PF app and have the check-in code ready so you can get into the club.
Planet Fitness Free Trial Policy
For those who want to try out Planet Fitness but don’t want a commitment, you can use their Free Trial program. Here’s what you need to know about the free trial policy from Planet Fitness:
Who can get a free trial?
Only residents within the PF club vicinity are applicable to have a free trial. They will need proof of their address, such as an ID or any legal document with such information. You also need to be of legal age (18 years old) but you can also ask the club staff if they allow 13 to 17 years old with parents/guardians.
What other requirements are needed?
Aside from the ID or legal documents stating your age and address, you also need to take a club tour so that you’ll know more about Planet Fitness and decide for yourself whether or not you will want to pursue membership.
How do I get a free trial for Planet Fitness?
Begin by going to their website to register your information, which includes the PF club you want to go to, your personal information, and other necessary details. When you are done filling up the online forms, simply submit by clicking “continue” and following the instructions given.
If you intend to go on-site, you can also ask the staff at Planet Fitness how to get a free trial since PF clubs might have different policies or methods for registering a person for a free trial.
How many free day passes can I have?
The rules may vary depending on the branch or location of the PF club but generally, you can only have one free “day pass” every 90 days – per PF club or branch.
How many guests can I bring to Planet Fitness?
For those with Black Card Membership, you can only bring one (1) guest for each visit but you can bring anyone you like for as many visits as you like. Black Card privileges are not passed on to the guest and the guest only has limited access to gym facilities.
How can I bring a guest to Planet Fitness?
To bring your guest to Planet Fitness, all you need to do is to send them an invite using the PF mobile app, which they will need to download as well. The guest will simply fill up an online registration to get a digital key tag so that they can check-in as well.
The Planet Fitness mobile app is free to download using Google Play and App Store – it’s a way to help reduce contact and maintain safety when checking in any PF club around the world. The guest logs by scanning the key tag, just like members.
How to be a guest at Planet Fitness?
Planet Fitness Black Card members can invite one (1) guest per visit using the PF app. If you are the guest, simply ask your Black Card member friend, colleague, or whoever you’re going with to send an invite through the PF app (you need to download it first).
All you need to do is fill up information on the app and you’ll receive a key tag that you can use to log in. A guest cannot go to the club alone – they need to be there at the same time when the Black Card member goes to the club.
How much is a one-time visit to Planet Fitness?
The day fee or one-time fee for Planet Fitness is $20, which is worth two months of club membership. Some selected PF clubs or branches also offer a free 1-day pass so that you can try it for free – but keep in mind that their rules might vary.
If the person decides to become a member after paying the day fee and trying out the facility, they can have the $20 credited to their first two months as a member. Simply approach the staff and sign up to PF as a member within 30 days after paying the $20.
How many times can you use a guest pass at Planet Fitness?
You can bring any guest you like an infinite amount of times, but you can only bring one per visit to the PF club. This means that you can bring a different guest each time you go there, such as your work colleague, special someone, family member, and the like.
With that said, some Planet Fitness locations have specific rules on the number of visits per day that you can make to bring a guest along. We suggest contacting your local PF club for more information.
How old do you have to be for a guest pass at Planet Fitness?
You can bring any person with you each visit but they should be 18 years old and above. As an exception, however, those from 13 to 17 years old can become guests as long as they have their parents or guardian.
