There's still plenty of work to be done before the new Planet Fitness opens on Skyland Boulevard, but employees there Wednesday morning said Tuscaloosa's second location of the international gym franchise is still set to open its doors on March 1.

Planet Fitness has been in business in Tuscaloosa's Midtown Village shopping center since an EF-4 tornado destroyed their original location in the Druid City in April 2011.

The company announced in November that they would be coming to Skyland Boulevard this year, in a large building that has sat vacant since a K-Mart there closed in 2017.

Deals on membership at the new gym are available until February 28th on site and on the Planet Fitness website.
